“Good Location”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

This hotel is located in the city center. You can walk to either Malecon or take a taxi for a low cost. The hotel offers a great breakfast. I usually was able to skip lunch because I wasn't hunger after eating breakfast, so I was able to save money on a meal. To my liking the hotel provide towels which were very clean.

This is a very, very nice hotel. The rooms are clean and really nicely decorated. The restaurant on the premises is good as well. The breakfast is excellent with a variety of foods to choose. This was our second time back at the Man-Ging. We will be back again when in Guayaquil. The staff is awesome! very professional and seek to satisfy the customers.

Nice big room with comfortable chairs and good pillows and lighting. Breakfast was tasty and varied, and the staff was super-helpful.
Street noise in Guayaquil is apocalyptic. And I didn't find the temperature control (room was too chilly for me) until my last night there. But that was totally my fault.

The Hotel Galeria Man-Ging is located across from the U.S. Embassy. It is about a 10 to 15 minute ride from the airport. The rooms are nicely appointed with lots of space (even by U.S. standards, the rooms are very LARGE), modern, very CLEAN, nice soft linens on the beds, very nice toiletries and bottled water are located in the bathroom; very comfortable accommodations. Be prepared for about a 10 minute check-in; they will ask for your passport, which is standard in South American hotels. Be prepared for at least a 15-minute check-out; also standard. At check-in, we were each given a "free cocktail" slip. However, please note, that there are 3 offerings decided daily by the hotel, and only those offerings are honored with the slip. Included in the room price is the breakfast buffet served in the restaurant. There was a large assortment of fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, breads/rolls, cereals, coffee, juices, and some hot foods; it was delicious! I looked at the American "chain hotels," and I'd say that the price overall was very competitive given it includes such a nice breakfast buffet. We also took a pre-arranged tour of Guayaquil. The city itself is very RICH in history. I'd love to go back, and see more of Guayaquil. As in any emerging country, there are parts of the old and the new. The city itself is absolutely enchanting, and the people are warm and friendly. We felt very "safe" there. I hope to go back again some day. Also, I highly recommend Guayaquil over Quito if you're planning a cruise in the Galapagos, which is what we did. Our travel agent "tried" to get us to fly to Quito, but we refused. Reasons for this are (1) Quito's new airport is essentially an hour drive from the city, (2) Quito is in the mountains and some people suffer from altitude sickness, and (3) you have to fly to Guayaquil to go to the Galapagos anyway. One of our friends forgot his toothbrush. There is a "farmacia" just outside the front door of the hotel to the right; essentially a little niche to the front of the hotel. You can pick up any toiletry items you left behind; the currency is in US dollars, so exchange - of course - is a no brainer. If you take a right outside the hotel, and walk down about 4 blocks, there was a very nice steak/seafood restaurant; blue awning over the door, called the "Caracol Azul." Our guide said it was one of the very best in the city; it is ranked #4 on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to try it.

I'm surprised this hotel doesn't come in at the top of the list at TA, since it's really a class act: very comfortable rooms; superb service; great breakfast; and excellent central location. Also appreciated was the "art" theme, though many of the paintings looked like they were acquired at a garage sale --or perhaps the "Starving Artists" exhibit at the Ramada Inn in Schenectady? The overall impression, though, of walls covered in pictures --in common areas and rooms-- warms things up a bit and keeps the place from feeling too corporate or business-y.

Room Tip: All rooms face a relatively quiet (for Guayaquil!) street, but some street noise is inevitable. Thi...

Guayaquil is not a particularly nice city to look at, but this hotel is an oasis of comfort and design. They feature a ton of artwork throughout the lobby, in the hallways on each floor, and in each guest room. The rooms are clean and up to date. Free wifi internet (password required) works throughout the hotel. Courteous and helpful staff. Good central location.
Perhaps it is a bit pricey in a city where $5 can buy you a very nice dinner!
