Great aircon, clean rooms, Internet didn't work though as the owner was always playing youtube for her kids who were in reception. She was quite unhelpful about it. Good location and reasonably priced though

Good option in Puerto Ayora if you are looking for a clean and large with air conditioning ( a relief in Santa Cruz hot weather ). I checked some hotels and the price is ok for the island average. The hotels is central located,about 10 minutes walk from the pier, but the town is relative small anyway.

Seems to be a pretty basic accommodation. On the main land I would not pay more then 30 for a such room. Single bed, no shower gel ;( air con too noisy, curtains does not block light. Breakfast is not included;( signs on the door, if you piss mattress, if you soul towels... You'll have to pay. Pretty depressing.

They couldn't find my reservation/payment, so I almost had to pay twice. The bathrooms don't have good ventilation so all the smells go into the bedrooms. The lady at the front couldn't tell me where to catch the bus to go to the airport. It's a small town, she should know. I never did get an answer. The night watch... More

We stayed here after we decided to leave our first accommodation we had booked as we weren't happy with it. The staff were helpful, the room was good with a comfy bed. The only draw backs were the AC was loud but we could sleep without it on in December, and the shower hot water was pretty average. They did... More

We read the reviews in tripadvisor but didn't confirm a hotel until we arrived at Port Ayora (Santa Cruz). We (2 females) booked a room with 2 beds (1 double, 1 single) for $50 a night. Our friend booked a single bedroom for $30 a night. If you pay cash they don't charge the extra fee on the credit card.... More

the location is great. Rooms are without any complaint. Be ready To climb some stairs, our room was in The 4th floor. In The First room, The Aircon was Not working. The replacement room had a terrible noisy Aircon, which was very old. Breakfast was okay, Nothing special And no variety. Okay for The Price.

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Espana. The hotel is close to everything in Puerto Ayora and easy to find. Our room was very comfortably large, well lit, nice bed and bathroom. Staff were friendly and attentive, the breakfast (which is an extra $4) is simple but fine. There was limited availability of wifi and had to use other places... More

Lovely hotel, stayed here for 6 nights. Staff really friendly, room huge, fresh towels every day, aircon, free wifi (in common area only) and great location from restaurants, laundry, shops etc! Only slight negatives were that the shower temperature was either scolding or freezing & that after requesting a twin room we got one double bed & one single bed... More
