“Oasis in this hectic city”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Not a very luxury hotel, but all we needed was there. The bathroom was a bit old, but clean. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The garden was a pieceful oasis in this hectic city. We enjoyed staying here.

Guayaquil is a noisy city so relaxing at the hotel is important. The hotel is situated outside but it takes ten minutes by car to go to the city and there are lots of restaurants nearby. Very nice boutique hotel. I loved taking breakfast in the terrase. The bathroom need to be repared.

Staff were all very polite and extremely helpful first night was fine second a nightmare because of the noise from the air conditioning outside of our room. The situation of the hotel is in a gated community.

We stayed one night in this hotel, just before our departure for France, and we should have stayed longer.

The hotel is more a private home used as a boutique hotel, but it adds to the charm of the rooms. The bathrooom was a bit small but very clean and the bath products were great.

The location is not easy to find, and you definitely need a taxi to get anywhere. There is a huge shopping center close by with some restaurants (don't have dinner in the hotel, it's ordered outside and have absolutely no interest at best).

The staff is very nice and helpfull.

We stayed one night on our way to Galapagos. Quiet residential area, pretty Close to the Airport. Walking distance to a few malls with a nice selection of stores and restaurant.
The hotell is small, charming, nice patio. Friendly staff. No elevator.
Nice and Clean rooms, good beds.
Two of our teenagers got the room on the top floor under the roof. Nice room, but terribly over-heated and no way to bring the temperature down.
Good breakfast.

I was traveling from NYC to the Galapagos, and needed a room near the airport for an overnight transfer. Hotel Orilla del Rio is a small set of rooms in a nondescript residential neighborhood. Within walking distance is a strip mall with a variety of restaurants. I knew I would be having Ecuadorian food all week, so I chose one of the middle eastern restaurants and I was surprised at the quality and authenticity.

The service at Hotel Orilla was excellent, but I thought the room was not priced accurately. The rooms are roughly $120 a night, which is the same price as the Hotel Oro Verde which is in the downtown area and roughly the same distance from the airport. The rooms at Orilla are clean but small, not particularly well appointed, the lobby is a bit musty, and there is no food service on premise except for a continental breakfast in the AM.

On the other hand Hotel Oro Verde is a Leading Hotels of the World property, and offers a much more robust and luxurious accommodations for the exact same price -- multiple restaurants, a pool, a gym, and large modern rooms. While I would prefer to give my money to the small business of Hotel Orilla than a corporate entity, I would strongly recommend people stay at Hotel Oro Verde instead. If Orilla were priced at $60-70 a night, I would opt for Orilla. But it doesn't make sense to stay here at $120 a night.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room on the back side of the hotel.

Orilla del Rio ...we were only there for one night and had a very early pick up but...it had a great atmosphere with beautifully laid out patio garden, jacuzzi, soft chairs and sofas, soft contemplative music. The staff were very helpful, organised a taxi for us to visit Plaza Lagos and were very attentive. The food looked great but we wanted to see more of Guayaquil. It would have got excellent but our shower didnt work, no time to mention it we were gone by 4.30 am! Also, they were still building on the next floor up ,which didnt interfere with us but meant there was some scaffolding and a bit of mess on that floor. When its finished it will be great!
Thanks to all staff.
I hope we meet again!
