I enjoyed my stay in this hotel, well located in downtown Guyaquil with good access to most business places a attractions. The service is great, no complaints. The front desk staff is attentive and accommodates your need. Carla, the front desk and reservations supervisor is very good getting stuff done and very helpful with any problems in the rooms. The...

I've been there for a week working. beautifull swimming pool very quiet, not much sun as it is interior, but neverthe less amazing decor. The staff is the must of the hotel, they do everything to keep you happy. rooms are spacious, clean. Noise from air conditioning. good restaurant, good buffet for breakfast. Safe.

We stayed here for a night en route to the Galapagos and were quite happy with our experience. It was nothing exceptional but it was clean, comfortable and convenient and suited our needs at the time. We would happily recommend it to others with similar needs.

The Hotel is a very comfortable one with everything you would expect, I only had two days in the Hotel on the way to the Galapagos but everything was excellent. Two bottles of drinking water and coffee making facilities are provided for free in the room. The area is great with the church behind the hotel then Iguana park then... More

If you want a boutique hotel that is in the center of the historic district, than this is the place. My room had a small balcony overlooking their famous ENORMOUS statue of the iguana, a stained-glass window from the church next door and the lovely pool/garden area). They have the huge iguana because they are around the corner from the... More

Rooms are refurbished, spacious, tv set has a lot of nonstop music channels, two bottles of water a day, wireless internet has a workable speed. the gym is basic but better than in some other hotels claiming to have a gym....

If you are in Guayaquil, it is likely that you are heading to or from Galapagos. This is a necessary stopover given flight schedules. This hotel is ok, the staff is rather rude and has an attitude (and makes this even worse by pretending they don't understand English)--this includes everyone we met at Grand Hotel Guayaquil, and the rooms are...

Stopped over here for two nights on the way to Galapagos. We found the staff helpful and the and facilities clean and tidy. As we didnt have much planned we simply went for a couple of walks around the immediate surrounds and enjoyed the pool in the hotel. The food was simple but well prepared. There were enough English speaking... More

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in early January. The location and room were fine, no complaints there and the breakfast buffet was OK as well, very basic but enough variety. Waiters are not very attentive and you have to get them to bring you and/or refill your coffee, but that's not the end of the... More
