It takes about 15 minutes to get from here to the city’s downtown – city tours will introduce you to some of the city’s top landmarks in the area, including the hill called Cerro Ana. From here, you’ll have an excellent view of the city. Walking down the hill and along the Malecón boardwalk, stop and check out the galleries, restaurants, and cafes that line the streets. The hotel’s surrounding park is an excellent spot for bird watching. Monkeys, sloths, and tapirs also live on the grounds of the park and at the zoo, and the property overlooks the scenic Guayas River.
The hotel’s style of architecture dates back to the turn of the century, although it’s been fully reconstructed restored since then.

This is where you’ll find the free breakfast buffet every morning.
