A very nice, clean and well appointed hotel located easy walking distance from the Malecon. The hotel has an in house bar and restaurant which serves a very good included breakfast and good food at lunch time too. There is a great pool and deck area. The waterfall completely erases the city sounds for a peaceful afternoon around the pool.... More

I've stayed here several times over the years and it never ceases to please. The hotel staff are very attentive and professional. The restaurant breakfast especially delicious with Ecuadorian specialties. The pool area is very pleasant and the rooms are spacious, clean, and well appointed.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Grand Hotel, the location is central and all the staff were very helpful etc. The restaurant is a little "soulless" but the food is good and served well. My only (very minor) gripe (and I blame myself for this as well!-) is I didn't notice the window was ajar to air the room... More

I stayed two days in Guayaquil so that I could rest before I started my tour of Ecuador. Was pleasantly surprised that the hotel was quite lovely, very clean, and modern, yet had the feel of older charm. The room was very comfortable, bath was small, but ver nice, their was a safe in the room for my added comfort... More

Our room at the Grand Hotel was pretty good, great bedroom and very good disabled bathroom. Reception fairly helpful, bar good. Restaurant strange....freezing due to the air conditioning, but, also, having sent a waiter (in fact, two different ones) five times to understand and check each order (bottle of wine - obviously rarely sold here - a main prawns dish...

The room was spacious and clean and it provided a nice view from the window on the stain glass windows from the adjacent church and the mosaic iguana in the garden by the pool, with a waterfall .

I read the reviews and was worried that I may have made a poor choice. But I found out for myself that this is a terrific part of a memorable trip to Guayaquil. It is clean and comfortable! I am a designer by trade and found the hotel to be tastefully Ecuadorian. If you are looking for a North American... More

Stayed here for the first 2 days in Ecuador after a long journey down, and it was a good decision. The room was spacious and clean and it provided a nice oasis.

The hotel literally backs onto the cathedral (opposite that is the igunia park) and is a ten minute walk from the water. The rooms are big and clean, the front desk is helpful and the pool is beautiful. The wifi works all over the hotel and is very strong.
