Stepping into this hotel is like stepping back in time. The furnishings and decor are quaint and charming. A visual delight. The location on the waterfront make for a wonderfully centralized place to visit the citywide. The problems are small, but should be noted: 1. Long flight of steps to the front door. 2. Inconsistent water pressure and temperature in... More

I arrived very late and the driver found the hotel with no problem. It is in a residential neighborhood with cobblestone streets and right on the river. So, if you like to walk, it is very scenic. There are several security checkpoints on this street where there are guards that prevent outsiders from coming in. I liked that. I noted... More

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...

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.

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.
