“Average Hotel Nazo with Good Restaurant”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Minimalist room design. Most basic included breakfast ever experienced in Ecuador. Spacious shower with great water pressure.

Internal noise high. External road noise average to high for Ecuador.

Very attentive staff.

Excellent onsite Argentinian restaurant - order a steak -superb!.

Bit pricey (carnival rate) for average hotel.

Four of us stayed for one night in two separate rooms. Rooms were clean compact well laid out. Excellent water pressure (in Ecuador this can be an issue). The onsite restaurant is an Argentinian, not Japanese but excellent food. The location is quiet and a bit off the beaten track thank goodness. Very easy to find as it is accross from a very large tennis club.

From reading the other reviews, I don't think I can add much. It's a great place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was super. The price of the room was very reasonable, $65 per night plus tax and service charges. If this hotel has any negatives, it would be a) it's not walkable to things like shopping; and b) it's located on a busy street. But the overall quality of the hotel way overshadows these negatives. I would stay here again.

We came into Manta with our puppy not knowing where we would stay. Well we came to Hotel Nazo and what a pleasant surprise. Clean quiet and friendly. The staff go out of their way to help and be there for you. Then we had dinner in the restuarant. Prices seemed a bit high but when our food came it was beyond deliscious. If you have a pet and are coming to Manta look up hotel Nazo. It will be worth your time and money.

There's nothing like stumbling onto a new, stylish hotel with clever management. Most hotels in Ecuador have a friendly staff but not all of them are well educated in a traveler's needs and expectations. It's easy to see that this owner/manager, is well traveled herself and has put high standards on her own establishment. The hotel is small but the rooms were modern, large, clean and had both cable and wifi. We did not try the restaurant, but the breakfast, which was included, was excellent. There's also a good restaurant (economical) located across the street. The location is quiet and not far from the beach or action. Ifts pricey if you're a walk in, so check the travel search engines as well for better rates.

This wonderful, unpretentious little hotel is filled with wonderful surprises. Clean, comfortable rooms with a Japanese flair decor. Free wifi, views of the Pacific, a small fridge, a safe , our room 10 has a small balcony and did I mention clean. :-) . We booked on booking.com and saved abit..cost about $79 plus taxes for two persons and worth every penny. About 15 minutes from shopping and the beach if that's your thing. Very friendly, helpful staff.
It is located on a busy road,possibly a short cut route between two major roads, but if it gets too noisy, shut the windows and turn on the AC. And there is hot water for showers, a treat for us since we don't have hot water in our showers in San Clemente.  The biggest surprise is the onsite Japanese restaurant. The food was amazing and the presentation superb with outstanding service. Hubby and I shared two appetizers..California rolls and tempura vegetables and also shared the Seafood platter..best calamari ever. { yes, way too much fried foods, but oh so good). Along with two drinks ( 10% discount with room key) our billed totaled $44 and we brought the leftovers up to the little fridge in our room. Check out their website for pics

Room Tip: Room 10 is a corner room on third floor. One of larger rooms with a small balcony. FYI..stairs only...
