Very nice accomodations in a quiet location, area feels safer than another area where we spent several nights. Hotel is, literally, 5 minutes from the airport, so great for overnighting before those early morning departures. Decorations are a touch spare...but that's a nit. We departed at 4:30 am and the hotel saw us off with sack breakfasts to munch on... More

Our flight was very late getting into Guayaquil, but there was still someone waiting at the front desk to let us into our room. Breakfast was wonderful, lots of fresh, homemade food. The taxi driver they arranged to take us to the airport stayed with us and walked us through everything we needed for our flight to Galapagos and probably... More

We only got to spend one night, but this is a wonderful place. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable rooms. Nice folks, would recommend it highly. They even prepared us a very nice bagged breakfast/lunch for a very early morning departure.

Stayed there for 2 nights when I was on my way to Galapagos islands. It is called Hostal, but it is run by a friendly family, very cosy hostal, and most importantly, it is in a quiet and safe location. It is closed to one of the main shopping malls too. The room is nice size with air conditioning! I... More

Great place to stay for quick hop to the islands. Picked up from airport, in the morning served lovely breakfast by the very charming Wilson, then collected by taxi who guided us through the slightly complex process of check in, tagging & inspection at airport for the islands. This was all organised by hotel. Hotel was clean and friendly. Highly... More

We were so pleased that we had chosen to stay at Hostal Macaw. It's close to the airport so very convenient. (It's also not an expensive taxi to the Malecon 2000 if you want to go into el centro.) The room was spotless and we had a huge bed. The room has air conditioning, and I had the best night's... More

This is a delightful small hotel in a spacious house. Very nicely designed and well-maintained, with service to meet all your needs. I enjoyed my short stay, and will be back. My ride was waiting for me at the airport, it was a short trip to the hotel. I received a warm welcome from Fanny and Rodrigo. The night I... More

We stayed twice here for one night each on way to and from Galapagos. Fanny and her husband are wonderful hosts, the rooms are a delight, spotlessly clean and we had a huge king bed. All the rooms have macaws on the furniture, table lamps etc. very tastefully done. The breakfast is wonderful, the best we had in Ecuador, juice,... More

We had trouble communicating with some of the staff in English, but they were very nice. I had trouble with a flight reservation, so they let me use the phone. During our first night there when we arrived late, we presumed that there was no AC, so we opened the windows and got itchy from the mosquitoes. In the morning,... More
