I stayed at the Continental Hotel for 2 nights while I was in Guayaquil for business. It was centrally located, close to the Malecon and beautiful downtown architecture. The taxi driver from the airport recommended not to walk around late at night - and rightly so. Everything seems to close up early and there's really no one on the streets... More

We spent just one night here, but our stay was pleasant. Our room was really huge, with a confortable bed and air conditioning. It also had a private bathroom, of course. The windows overlooked the square, where there are a beautiful church and a park full of iguanas. We had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant which is just... More

I just returned from three nights at the Continenal. My husband and I had just returned from a trek in the Amazon, and were looking pretty scruffy when we walked in. I can only assume that this is the reason we got room 113 - the lowest floor, and one of the only rooms without a view of Iguana Park.... More

We were lucky to get a good rate ($72) which was more than we had been paying throughout our trip but felt we wanted a hotel close to the malecon and downtown. We were greeted with a doorman who took our suitcases from the sidewalk and opened the door to our luxury. Our room was spacious and very nicely appointed.... More

The hotel is located on a square in downtown, which contains a great little park. Across the square is magnificent church. Rooms were large and quiet. DEcor was early 70's. Bathrooms were dated bur very clean and functional Taxis are rate controlled so it only cost 3 dollars to go to restaurants nearby. The hotel has a small restaurant downstairs... More

I honestly expected more of this hotel, especially in view of the price. The location is absolutely great and the room was spacious but it stops here really. The service was rather nonchalant. The aircon is so loud that you cannot leave it on for too long. The restaurant (la canoa) is absolutely awful. The breakfast is outrageously expensive. Needs... More

Overpriced and way too expensive for a cheap room. The management was not understanding when American Airlines cancelled our flight. They charged us for 1 night we didn't stay due to circumstances beyond our control. WE COULDN'T STAY BECAUSE WE WERE NOT IN THE COUNTRY,yet! For what we paid, we could have been in a 5***** place instead! We stayed... More

The Hotel Continental is an great hotel with very courteous staff and with an excellent location at the heart of Guayaquil's center. It is across the street from the "Park of the Iguanas" and a few blocks from the Malecon 2000. Having said that, it is very pricey (as most of the nicer hotels in this area are), especially for...
