We stayed at the Fernandina because the Hotel Silberstein was full, and Fernandina is used as the "overflow" hotel. How lucky for us, because this hotel was truly a pleasure!
Our Galapagos tour company had messed up our entire itinerary, and the staff at Hotel Fernandina spent lots of time and effort to help us straighten things out. The hotel is run by a darling family, and they couldn't have been nicer people. On our last night they made us a lobster dinner to say goodbye. We got to know the entire staff, and we really felt taken care of by them. They are happy to help in any way - from late check out, calling taxis, arranging any tour, recommendations or just conversation. At the hotel Silberstein, I got the feeling that the staff were not nearly as personal and some were downright rude - the complete opposite of Hotel Fernandina.
The location is within easy walking distance from the bay, a small beach where we went snorkeling, and the Darwin center. The rooms were clean, quiet, large, with nice clean hot showers, and the A/C worked great.
Staying at Hotel Fernandina really was a highlight of our stay in Galapagos. If you like personal attention, and you don't like being treated as just another tourist, stay at Hotel Fernandina - not the Silberstein!!
