Hampton Inn by Hilton Guayaquil-Downtown

Reviewed June 25, 2007

After one week on a boat in Galapagos, we arrived in Guayaguil on a Sunday and decided to walk in and ask for a good price. We didn't even have to bargain. The price offered was so good: USD 75 excl. taxes. This was including an excellent breakfast, a big room with an even bigger bed and a nice bathroom, free internet in the business centre and a welcome drink (Cuba Libre). The location is very good. Within walking distance of most places of interest. Only to Las Penas/Cerro Santa Anna you will need a taxi if you don't want to walk too far. But you can also walk there.
I was sad having to leave again after one night.

Stayed: May 2007

We spent one night here, arriving from Cusco early afternoon & leaving mid-morning for the Galapagos Islands. The Hampton Inn is well situated to enjoy the revitalized riverfront, the 3 km Malecon.

Per request, we were met at the airport & driven downtown. While we were waiting for our room to be ready, we used the free internet in the business center. The staff was very helpful & pleasant. Our room was spacious with a TV & minibar. The view was tired, old Guayaquil, but the room was quiet.

In 5-10 minutes we were at the riverfront where there are towers to climb for views, a modern water tower, monuments, a few vendors, etc. People were obviously enjoying the park that includes a lovely extensive botanical garden as well as quite a large play area for children.

Security is obviously an issue in downtown. The hotel has a security guard 24/7 in the lobby who makes his presence known. We felt safe, including during our free shuttle to the airport. No one bothered us on the street or in the park (lots of security folks all over downtown).

We ate dinner & breakfast at the hotel. Both were tasty & nicely presented. The buffet breakfast has a nice assortment of items.
We probably won't ever go back to Guayaquil, but we enjoyed walking the riverfront.

I loved this hotel. the service here is extreme. The food in the cafeteria was great, everyone in the cafeterial are very attentive and helpful... The bellboys... while i was taking care of business they carried the baby! Room service... i never seen people clean a bathroom like these folks "WOW". I have been in hotels all over the world and to tell you the truth the Hampton was not my first choice, I wanted to go to Hilton Colon or the Sheraton but it was booked for that week. The pool or the gym is all right but you need to experience this kind of service at least once in your life... i always go to 4 or 5 star hotels for my travels with my family, but this hotel is great... statigically located, walking distance to every where. Oh yes... i got sick because i mixed "ceviche and orange juice" a no, no... i asked the bellboy if he knew of a doctor where i could go... in ten minutes there was a doctor and his assistant in my room, gave me shot in the rear and three hours later i was fine... the hotel paid the bill. Like i said this hotel is not a 5 star hotel but the service.... i would go back there as my first choice hotel next time.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn three different times over a period of a month, five days, total, as we traveled between Peru and the Galapagos. Our first, late-night arrival was met with friendly smiles and helpfulness. For our second arrival, we had prearranged a transport with the concierge and were met at the airport gate, given bottles of cold water in the van, and given warm washclothes to freshen up, and strawberry juice at check-in. It was like we were old friends. Our third/ final check-in wasn't quite as "royal", and there was confusion about my reservation, but as I had the reservation print-out, it was honored.
The room and bed were very comfortable and clean. I felt very safe, as you need to use your key card to get the elevator to operate, and there were lots of staff in the lobby, and added security in the evenings because there's a casino adjacent to the hotel.
I can't rave enough about the beakfast! There was a huge amount of the usual continental breakfast items--breads, pastries, delicious fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, great coffee, juices, as well as eggs or meat of some type. You could also order omelets. But the best part was the Ecuadorian foods--ceviche, always some sort of potato, often a fish dish, plantains, tamales... It was awesome!! We ate dinner twice in the restaurant, and found the food very good and prices reasonable.
I would go back to this hotel and their freindly staff in a heartbeat.

Stayed one night after a week long adventure to the Galapagos. What a treat! The hotel is centrally located downtown in the lovely city of Guayaquil. Only about 10 minutes from the airport. the hotel shuttle was waiting for us at the airport and transported us and our gear without any problems. The room was very spacious, 2 double beds, large bathroom and extremely clean. The bed, pillows and comforter were scrumptious! The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in directing us to the beautiful river walkway and park. If you are planning a trip to the Galapagos I would recommend staying in Guayaquil rather than Quito. Guayaquil is clean, safe, beautiful city. Make sure you walk around the downtown area. It is really beautiful. In addition to the free airport shuttle, you get a free breakfast which was excellent.

I was a bit apprehensive to stay at a Hampton Inn hotel, but since the hotel was the best option closest to the malecon and sites in quayaquil, i thought i would take a chance. the great stay started when i happened to see the hotel mini van at the airport. i mentioned to the driver i was staying at the hotel and he told me i could go with those he was there to pick up. once in the van, he handed us all a bottel of water. most definetlyey needed. the hotel is not 5 star. but the attempt of service is 5 star. check in was a bit of an issue, but was easily taken care of by another employee (erica) and all bad thoughts were forgotten. for the rate, the location, and the service, the little things that can be improved, don't seem to matter. the break fast that was included, was nothing to write home about, but was not so bad either. they do their best. and that is what matters the most. from someone who is particular and knows hotels, i highly recommend this one.
