We spent 2 nights at this hotel. It is a bit old and faded. but the room was very clean, there was good air conditioning, good hot water, good location and all the staff were fantastic. We appreciated them sorting out bus options for us to travel up the coast as well.

This place does exactly what it says on the tin (except that it isn't in the Las Penas neighborhood!). It's location is great - in the middle of downtown and close to the waterfront. The breakfast next door is great (the cafe is great for lunch too). THe staff are nice and helpful. Ask for a corner room!

This hotel was located a few blocks from the waterfront. The rooms were clean and large and a fine place to sleep. The entryway was a little hard to find and the lobby is very small, almost like a youth hostel over a hotel. The bathrooms were tiny and the shower stall extremely small. Breakfast was in the restaurant next... More

This hotel turned out to be a great find after we landed in Guayaquil last night. We have 4 beds in a spacious room on the 4th floor. It is air conditioned and has a refrigerator.the managers are friendly and helpful. Breakfast next door at the cafe is complimentary. We are downtown in walking distance of the Rioguayas boardwalk and... More

I have called this hotel a day prior and was given some prices by the receptionnist, in English (because he told me he speaks English). I confirmed the information with him many times but had a bad feeling at the end of conversation. It turns out he didn't give me the correct price and, in front of his manager, told... More

We only stayed one night, but this was a perfect pick for us. We arrived super early from our night bus (6am) and they let us check in right away. We slept for a bit before heading out. In hindsight, sight seeing during mid-day was probably a bad idea. It's way too hot. But anyway, we had a roadside family... More

My husband and I had to unexpectely visit Guayaquil and needed to find a hotel (most importantly with AC) on short notice. As others have mentioned, downtown Guayaquil definitely lacks mid-range hotels and we didn't want to spend $100 a night to stay at the Hampton or Hotel Oro Verde. The rooms are large with tiled floors, comfortable bed, decent... More

Good hotel, it has AC and hot shower, it is coveniently located in the heart of downtown, close to Malecon 2000. The rooms have nice decorations, and tv with cable. The only problem I found is the fact that some rooms have no windows and sometimes food odors come out of the hotel cafeteria in the mornings specially. Another thing... More

Reservations were made for me and I showed up to this hotel with no knowledge of it. My host checked me in, arrival time 1:30 AM. The neighborhood was scary and had trash and bums all over the place.

I do not usually write bad hotel reviews since each traveler has their own opinion. However, I will share my factual experience so others can make a more informed decision. Guayaquil has an acute shortage of good quality downtown hotels at rates below $125. The Hampton Inn has a great location, but their website rate was $150, & when we... More
