Very clean. Very basic. Only spent one night so we'd be close to the airport. Only one or two choices for dinner nearby. Got up early, asked for a cab. They hailed the guy across the street. Worked out great.

For travelers enroute or connecting it is very close to both the bus station and airport. Otherwise the area is somewhat industrial, not good for walking, and some distance away from central Guayaquil. Spacious comfortable rooms with air conditioning and private bathrooms with hot water. The older home conversion features some beautiful wood carved doors and stair railings. The simple...

We had a 12 hour layover overnight in Guayaquil on our way home, and decided to get a hotel. Contacted the hotel from the kiosk in the baggage claim at the airport, Very friendly and helpful.
