Galapagos Islands Hotel
Ranked #18 of 21 Hotels in Puerto Ayora
Reviewed 1 October 2014

A basic no-frills room that was kept very clean as well as the rest of the casa. Excellent buffet breakfast served from 7 to 9 each morning, and earlier by arrangement when we had a booked tour that left at 7 am. I agree with the other reviews: very convenient to town (about a 10 minute easy walk). Front desk staff spoke excellent English and was very helpful keeping the wi-fi going! Pilar Velasquez (manager) has her island oil paintings on display and they really add to the ambiance.

Room Tip: The Casa is on a very quiet street--all rooms are pleasant.

Reviewed 26 August 2014

As part of our study abroad program to the Galapagos Islands, we have stayed at the Galapagos Hotel twice in the past two years, each time for a month long period. The accommodations have been good and the staff has been excellent and very friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we have very much enjoyed our time there. We also have Jhonny, the hotel owner, organize all of our excursions. We usually do morning tour of the highlands, a tour of the Charles Darwin research center, 5 night stay at the Isabella Islands and also a trip to North Seymour Island. The tours and the naturalist guides are also very good. We will be going back there again this coming summer!!!

I stayed during the month of February with my friend for 3 nights. From the very beginning I found the service to be extremely good. All of the staff was helpful, I was in Room 12 which was very nice. Overall, I'd say the service and the location were a big plus for me. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay away from the busy main street, I definitely recommend it. Thanks Veronica….

Room Tip: I recommend the upper levels like the third floor where I stayed.

One of the cheaper options in the area.

Staff were welcoming and friendly enough.

The room we booked was basic but clean. I woke twice during the night to find an insect trying to crawl in my hair (two different ones), which were easily transferred outside. The island is full of animals.

Simple cooked breakfast was included.

Wifi was included. Slow, but so is everywhere else.

Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

We stayed here only one night because our other hotel, Galapagos dreams, overbooked. So we got a great deal ($20 pp) and a room on the top floor, king sized bed, ac. We didn't eat breakfast as we had an early boat. The only thing I would change is the white curtains, while lively and tropical, don't provide much protection from the sun rising at 5:45 am (but we had to be in town at 7 so it was okay).
