Having booked the rooms for the family more than a half a year in advance we ended up in rooms in the rear building. Here the concept of "antique" and "old" are mixed-up: the facilities were just in a bad state; air conditioning, wifi, tv,... not working; bedsprings loud enough to keep one awake all night; the carpet too dirty...

Steep stairs to entrance. Buzz to be let thru gate. May not get response. More steep stairs. Our tour booked our group at this place. The hotel was supposed to pick us up at the airport. Even though we called ahead when we found we'd be delayed there was no one to greet/tranport us. Information person in airport tried to... More

We were there 3 nights. Positive: Great location--can walk around arts area and Malecon. It is unique, for sure. And Pablo, who does everything with a smile: carries luggage, serves and clears breakfast, brings water and towels, and is the only person there who seems to care about guests. So, service from Pablo was great, but from everyone else, very... More

The hotel is ideally located and easy walking distance from several great sights. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, especially Abel who greeted us and gave us great tips. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, had a small balcony and a very nice view. There is a lovely roof top terrace.

What an amazing hotel full of chandeliers and antiques every where you look! In an excellent location in a very safe area right by river with walking distance to Las Penas, Malecon 2000, iguana park and cathedral. Couple of nearby bars. Room was great, massive comfortable bed, ensuite, air con, fridge and complementary water. Rooftop bar with river view. Friendly... More

The taxi brought us to the door -fortunately! Situated at the end of a pedestrianised cobbled Street. Small hotel with only about 9 or 10 rooms. Ours was beautiful. Was cool, quiet, large, views out over the park to the river and beautifully decorated. Crystal chandeliers hang everywhere. The ceilings are amazing and the antique furniture make it all unique....

This place is perfectly located in old Guayaquil with a super view of the river, nice setting and super welcoming staff. It gives you a sense of what Guayaquil used to be. The rooms are vast based with natural light. Great bathrooms and comfortable lobby. It is the kind of hotel which makes you feel home.

The ultimate quirky hotel, but don't rely on GPS to find it! In a pedestrianised (except for residents and guests) part of the old city, at the beginning of the Malecon, this living museum has plenty to amuse and entertain if you want a break from the city. Large comfortable bed, air conditioning and river view. Service inevitably slow as... More

Pleasantly surprised when we arrived here, the antiques and architecture held us captive along with the views from the balcony where we watched iguanas and various birds in the treetops. We ate dinner here and was spoilt by the staff, we stayed in room 2 which was very good. Right in Santa Ana district this is a fabulous place to... More
