Galapagos Islands Hotel
Ranked #18 of 21 Hotels in Puerto Ayora
Reviewed 30 June 2016

owners are not very helpful, The rooms are large, the air-conditioning finally cools down at night. We had no hot water until we complained twice and then I think they turned it off again. Walk up stairs to rooms so not handicapped accessible. Ants all over the room.

Room Tip: wifi thoughout the island is poor

Reviewed 21 March 2016 via mobile

When we arrived at the hotel the bedsheets were dirty, there were ants in the bed and a cockroach in our room. The AC-fan had never been dusted. Not a good first impression... The staff was not very welcoming, not as much as a smile og offering to help us with our luggage up the stairs ( no lift). On the bright side the breakfast was decent and short walking distance to "downtown".

We ended up here as a result of a guide we met at the airport, Freddy. Just as advertised with hot water and air conditioning, both luxuries on the island! Within walking distance of everything! Staff were kind and friendly.

The pictures look inviting, but do not reflect reality. Pool not kept well. Family owned hotel. Kids in hotel area. Teenagers somewhat helpful. Polite but noisy. From rooms you could hear all the noise from dining area. Wi Fi a joke. Could not connect from rooms. Staff not always available. Also goes by the name Galápagos Islands Hotel

Room Tip: There are no good rooms

This place is perfect if you want to relax from exploring the islands all day, the service is good and its a good place to meet other travelers.

The rooms were clean and the bed confy, will recommend the place with other travelers for sure.
