Guayaquil is often used by travelers as a place to enter Ecuador or as a stopover while in route to the Galápagos Islands. Even so, this is the largest city in Ecuador, and it has lots to offer travelers. The Malecón is a pleasant riverside walkway with restaurants, shopping markets, and movie theaters lining much of it. A short, 15-minute trip outside the city will take you to the Cerro Blanco Protected Forest, which is a good place to go bird watching.
Hotel Galeria Man Ging is part gallery, part hotel. There is artwork – paintings and sculptures mainly – decorating the halls and walls of this hotel, and some of it is for sale. Even so, Galeria Man Ging is most definitely a hotel. There is a good range of facilities – including a restaurant and gym – and a bilingual staff that is pleasant and helpful.
The 94 rooms are comfy and decorated with bright artwork. They have central air conditioning and a private bathroom with a hot water shower and toiletries. It’s easy to work in the rooms with the Wi-Fi, desk, and direct-dial telephone. When you want to kick back and relax, turn on the cable TV and do just that. Before you do, though, grab a drink from the mini-bar. There’s also a safety deposit box where you can store valuable items.
The hotel restaurant is wonderful—enjoy steaks, soups, and cocktails here. An excellent breakfast buffet is also included in the cost of your room. The restaurant is open 24 hours a day and sometimes hosts live music. The hotel also has a deli – Dali Deli – where you can find desserts, snacks, and soft drinks.
The business center is equipped with computers, Internet, a copy machine, printer, and scanner. Guests can get in a workout at the hotel gym, which has a range of cardio and resistance equipment. Both the gym and business center are open 24 hours a day.
Guests with cars will appreciate the covered parking lot and valet service. Other services of Hotel Galeria Man Ging include laundry service, wake-up calls, and airport shuttles.
