It was a good option for walking around for it was exactly located near the bus stop and ferry and the center of the small town. The service maybe not that qualified but it was in Galapagos.Room was clean but simple. A little bit noisy when the Sunday morning the nearby church was performing its ceremony.

Hotel Ninfa is close to the center of town, near the main port. The rooms were tastefully done with more modern furniture and bath. There was a nice pool table and sitting area, where our group could gather and converse. There were ants in some of our rooms. Laundry service was offered for 50 cents to $1.50 per piece. This...

This is a cute hotel that is close to the main drag for restaurants, shopping etc. It could have been quiet but it was packed with locals who were very loud as well as staff that frequently yelled down the halls. The breakfast was also quite good and they loan free bicycles. The noise factor for me was the most...

After spending one week at Hotel Ninfa, I felt like I was leaving family when I departed. The location is the absolute best possible, within very short walk to everything. The port is nearby, supermarket, restaurants, hospital, church, etc. Rooms are exceptionally clean & well maintained, but somewhat spartan, furniture/furnishings-wise. Tiny bar soap & shampoo, one bath towel, per person...

Clean and comfortable hotel next to the pier and main street. The chill area is also confortable. The rooms were tidy and big, with all the facilities. The Internet was not good though. Also, the tours they offer are funny and the staff is very kind and helpful. Overall, a place recommendable. We stayed 4 nights.

We stayed at Hotel Ninfa for 5 nights overall during our amazing trip to the Galapagos Islands. The rooms are completely renovated and very spacious. The staff, Alfredo the owner, Robert the manager and every single employee, are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and included what you need to start your day. The location is unbeatable. Right near...

3 nights. Hotel is very centrally situated, 5 minute walk to the pier and the tourist area. Another 5 minutes gets you to the Darwin reserve and a great swimming beach.

Nice hotel with covered bar area, pool tables and eating area. Many ants, but hard to deal with because it is common near the ocean. Beds are low but comfortable, and air conditioning takes some figuring out. Water is tricky too, just keep on center for warmer water.

Arrived on a short 3 days trip to Galapagos on June 12th. The hotel is located in a central area not far from the main docks. Here are a few pros and cons of Hotel Ninfa. Pro 1. Location - Centrally located in Puerta Ayora. You can walk to just about anywhere in town in no more than 20 minutes....
