Basically a very nice B & B. Nelly is a sweetheart, always smiling and very helpful. The staff had very limited English but I can't fault them for that, it's our responsibility to know the language when we travel, not theirs. Our room was wonderful, on the 3rd level with our own large patio with a fantastic view of the... More

Our first stop on a land-based tour. Nice hotel and nice room, but the stairs and corridor are a bit narrow. Very good breakfast! Walking distance from the town, restaurants, shops and interpretation centre. To be honest you don't spend much time in the room anyway so it's well suited to needs although the shower temperature was a bit hit... More

Stayed here during a land tour. We had the terrace room at the top with a beautiful view. Nelly greeted us every time we came back from an outing with a big smile and asking about the day. She works hard to make sure you have everything you need while there.

We had this hotel in a land tour package. We had a room on the top floor with a terrace to sit and enjoy the bay and the sunsets. Easy to get to the main area of town. The breakfast for us and the couple traveling with us was inside the home next to the kitchen. Nice area but the... More

I was there at the end of February part of a touring group. We were 10 people in the room. I was left the last and given a room up on a second floor. To my surprise I was set in some share accommodation with a girl. You must know this is not a hotel is more like a hostel,... More

I stayed here for 4 days in 2010 and felt so at home. I'd lost the name and had to use google maps to find my way back. Im glad to see it has become so popular as Nelly and her family couldn't have been nicer. Wifi only worked in their living room then so I was always welcome to... More

Stayed here for the first two nights of our Galapagos trip. Nice garden downstairs, I stayed in a room with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Clean and comfy, I've never really stayed in hostels before so can't compare, but no complaints at all. Had breakfast on the second morning which was lovely. Great little rooftop area with hammocks as well.... More

Nelly Saltos is the owner of Casa de Nelly, a small villa in San Cristobal, quite close to the ocean. Nelly picked us up from the airport and even drove us back when we discovered we had forgotten a bag. The room (for 4 people) was extremely comfortable and clean. We had a small kitchen at our disposal (not very... More

We stayed for 3 nights as a couple. I had been in San Cristóbal earlier and wanted to stay close to the beach La Playa Mann, as well as close to the Malecón. For that it was perfect. The price is probably a bit high for backpackers, but affordable to most. Unfortunately, we were not offered breakfast. We did not... More

After a night in a cheap backpacker's, the family wanted more space and light. Found Nelly by walking by. Super-friendly lady. Got a beautiful 3-bed-room on the top terrace. AC worked well, never had any major water temp/pressure problems. Drinking water dispenser in room - great for filling bottles for excursions. Great value, nice views, good dining recommendations, easy to... More
