We stay regularly at this hotel - couple of times per year and have always found the rooms comfortable and well equipped in line with the standards of a high mid-range hotel. Although very central, just a few blocks from the Malacon 2000 and right across the street from the park of the Iguanas the hotel rooms themselves are very quite. The hotel serves a very nice breakfast and has a good 24 hour restaurant which is very handy for early departures and late arrivals which are common in Guayaquil. As per a previous reviewer be clear on your booking whether breakfast is included rooms are priced both ways and heavily discounted tariffs generally don't include breakfast

After arriving in Guayaquil late at night it was so nice to have a representative from the hotel waiting to take us back to the hotel. We paid the cost of the taxi which was minimal. The room was large and clean with everything you needed. I felt that the price was fair for what you got. The staff were very helpful and the hotel well situated to walk and have a look around at the city sites. The buffet breakfast was not included with our stay and @ $20/ea, pretty expensive, but with a large selection.

Just across the street from Iguana Park and the Cathedral, the Continental is in a very good area, just a few blocks from Malecon 2000. I stayed 2 nights after being in Puerto Lopez and one more after flying back from Cuenca. The junior suites have just enough space, comfortable beds, wi-fi, and are well worth the price. Unfortunately, I found the front desk staff to be rather imperious and dismissive, but the rest of the hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The doormen, bellmen, waiters, and even the security guards could not have been more pleasant. The food at "Fortin", the gourmet restaurant was a little disappointing, but the 24 hour cafe/coffee shop was actually good, and the breakfast buffet offered good choices. If I am in Guayaquil again, I will very likely book a room at the Continental.

I stayed a night at this hotel after an amazing trip to the Galapagos. Shortly after checking in with other people from that tour, we wanted to know whether breakfast was included, so we went back to the front desk to ask and were told quite clearly that yes, breakfast was included. Big mistake--we shouldn't have listened.

The next morning, *after* eating breakfast, I was informed that breakfast was not included. I tried to explain that the only reason I ate breakfast was because the front desk told me breakfast was included, but the person on duty would have none of that. He even went so far as to imply (very politely, of course) that I was lying and just trying to get a free meal. That is no way to treat a customer, especially when the hotel is the one which made a mistake to begin with.

Absolutely horrendous service. Don’t be fooled by the pretty pictures.

We loved Hotel continental.It was spacious and modern with 2 big beds.From our room we could see the Park of the Iguanas, which is right across the street.It is about 2 blocks from Malecon 2000 and centrally located.Hotel staff are very nice.Wi fi worked perfectly.
We stayed 2 nights. The first night we booked with hotels.com and the buffet breakfast was not included and it cost us $40 for 2 people. The second time we booked directly from the hotel and they included breakfast for the same price .
Also, if you have dinner there,be aware that their soft drinks are $3 (where as as the store around the corner it is just 70 cents).Their food is excellent and not overpriced.

Prompt attention, good restaurant, clean rooms. The best I experienced in Ecuador by far. Only complaint was the botched airport pickup.

My wife and I found this to be a comfortable hotel. The location is great- right across the street from the Iguana Park. The breakfast was also very nice, especially since it's included in the price. My only complaint is that we missed our flight, and although I called the hotel immediately to inform them, they would not refund one night's cost. Of course this wasn't surprising. Overall, not a bad stay.
