We stayed here as part of a pre and post Galapagos cruise with G Adventures (formerly Gap Adventures). The first night my mom and I got room #2, which is on the ground floor part of the main house. My sister and her friend got room #8 on the second level of the main house. There are no hair dryers in the room. I think there were safety boxes in the room. Very limited hanging space, room is overall well lit. It got pretty chilly at night and there doesn't appear to have any central heating but thankfully the blankets and covers were quite warm.
The bathrooms are furnished the same way in all the rooms I've noticed. I should note there is a window in room #2's bathroom with blinds that don't close properly. The shower is also big. The shower in room #8 was quite tiny. The beds were double beds pushed close together.
When we returned from our cruise, my mom got a garden area room #10 on the ground floor and my sister and her friend stayed in the main house in room #7, located on the second level. The beds were still double bed sized. Room #7 had an extra bed, a single, in addition to 2 double sized beds. The windows do not lock in room #10. Whomever installed the lock did it backwards so that pulling down the hook did not hook to lock at all.
This place feels more hostel than hotel. Really a no frills place best for a night or two.
Breakfast consists of self service coffee, tea and toast. The kitchen staff will bring out juice, fruit and eggs (fried, scrambled or omelette) but only during late morning. If you get up as soon as breakfast is served, there are no eggs offered.
This place is within walking distance to a bunch of shops called Mariscal Artisans Market and Plaza Foch where there are plenty of restaurants and bars.
