the food I left on the fridge disappeared, along with my toothpaste, deodorant, and shampoo. Seriously, before you leave your room put everything inside your bags, and make sure you buy a lock.

We were told it was difficult to find a hotel in Guayaquil for less than $100 per night, so we were thrilled to find Hotel Plaza St. Rafael for $52 per night in a seemingly decent location.

Hotel is centrally located adjacent to the Cathedral and the Parque Seminario with its resident iguanas, and only three blocks from the Malecon. Room facilities perfectly adequate and functional, and typical breakfast included in the very reasonable price. Staff helpful and efficient. Lift was being repaired at time of arrival but security guard was happy to assist with luggage.
