We stayed at Hotel España on our last 2 nights in Puerto Ayora - only wish we had come across it sooner! The rooms were very well priced, the staff helpful and the "lobby" / chill out area is large, spacious and clean. Highly recommend this hotel for your stay on Santa Cruz!

Prefect budget hotel. Air conditioning worked great and you need it in the Galapagos. Walking distances to the Darwin center, tortuga bay, dock and restaurants. No frills but comfortable. Price online was more expensive than dealing directly with the front desk.

Clean, comfortable, icy cold air conditioning. No kitchen facilities, there is a fridge/freezer but it's a bit smelly and not very cold. Good location. Poor wifi even by Galapagos standards. Cheap enough at $40 per night for a double room.

Close to everything. You can do almost all walking. Try Tortuga Bay (more or less 7km walk) or Darwing station (more or less 5km walk). Dive centers are really close, resturants, suvenir stores. The hotel is decent and cheap. A good place to stay if you want to save money.

Great staff, very clean and modern hostel, very close to everything. Nothing offered in the rooms: no hand or face towels, no toiletries, no hairdryer, no water glasses, no hangers, no lamps, no clock or alarm-clock, really nothing, just two beds, two towels, A/C unit and TV. Kitchen was remodeled so no breakfast. No real tour ticket counter just inter-island...

We stayed here for four nights and found the hotel to be perfect for our needs. The room was clean and comfortable. It was also very affordable. Perfect location as we were able to access almost everything by foot. Check in and check out were also very easy. Definitely would stay here again.

We stayed here twice because we like it so much! The first night was New Year's Eve, because the hotel we originally booked was awful beyond words. The Hotel Espana had a double room available, so we grabbed it. We were so pleased to see the room was pretty, and incredibly clean. It looked like it had been recently remodeled....

Aside from the excellent location, this place offered a cool meetup spot and a helpful staff during the day. Downsides, the wifi is terrible, the breakfast is a waste, and the night staff is uninformative. Check it out. You cant beat the price and it sleeps very comfortably.
