The hotel was very old and outdated. The pictures posted in this site don't match with the real rooms. They may have one or two rooms renovated, but the entire hotel look old. It was probably build in the 70's and has not received any investment since. For sure is not a 5 star! Breakfast is good, wifi is slow.... More

Thank you for staying with us . Our hotel has an extraordinary reputation and never lies. In all booking channels you will find the photos of the rooms remodeled and non- remodeled . The customer chooses which reserves , the difference is the price. Sorry you have a limited budget. However, both are clean and excellently maintained. Come back soon... More

Very well located hotel in the proximity of shopping,restaurants and beautiful sites to enjoy. They across the street from the pitoresque Iguana park and a few blocks from an amazing Boardwalk. To my liking the room we had was a bit outdated but the services we great. Approx 5$ to 10$ taxi ride from and to the airport.

The Continental Hotel, just a couple of blocks from the Malecon and directly opposite Iguana Park is very well situated in downtown Guayaquil. It's in an area with a pedestrian walkway amongst many well preserved and restored administrative buildings and a tourist information office.Walking the Malecon, the shops and finding a restaurant is a breeze. Check in was smooth, fast... More

I loved the landmark view across to the cathedral from my single room. The room was small, but didn.t feel so. Bed was very comfortable and the room well appointed and clean. I ate at the A-La-Carte restaurant up the stairs, which was very nice. Great service and food. The buffet breakfast had everything you expect from a good hotel... More

The hotel is average clean rooms and with great buffet breakfast. The hotel location is great short to the Malecon and river. The iguana park across the road with the cathedral on the other side of park. Good value for your money.
