Comfortable Cozy Hotel-But Not Entirely PreparedPosted Apr 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
Orilla del Rio is a nice sort of "wanntabe" boutique hotel. I say wannabe because they are still pretty novice at service and attention. Room was very nice, clean, well stocked in most ways, quite, and comfortable.There are a few details, small but important ones, they need to improve on. They offer conditioner and shampoo, but there were no bars of soap in my room. Food had to be ordered 30-40 minutes in advance, from a limited menu. At one point, I had to ask the service "What DO you have have?" because everything I kept asking for was not available. And then when I was checking out, the guy asked me if I wanted a receipt. Of course I did! For a casual stay or a one-nighter, it's a decent spot and the location is excellent. But for business needs, it's lacking in a several aspects. Overall, a very nice place for the casual traveller.

WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYEDPosted Mar 8, 2014
Located in a middle class suburb, not even close to any "rive side" as the hotel name mentioned; this is a family house and in any way a "Boutique Hotel", more Bed and Breakfast for young boys;and rate is over US$ 120, it is a real scam. Jacuzzi was not working and Staff said every monday it was on maintenance but surprise, it was wednesday....; by the way, picture of Hotel front is not the real picture...

Perfect post Galapagos (or Montanita)Posted Feb 25, 2014
Weather you are coming back from the Galapagos or Montanita, this is a great place to gear back up to city living without feeling that your vacation is over. Perfect for a "lay-over" stay or a spa/wine retreat, but too secluded to be a hotel to see Guayaquil.

Out of the way Guayaquil B&BPosted Mar 5, 2013
Pros: Homey, safe, close to airport.
Cons: Cab drivers don't know how to get there.
Location: 15 minutes from airport; In gated neighborhood
This hotel is a bed and breakfast in a gated (very safe) neighborhood. It is homey and pleasant. The staff are attentive. The clerk was up at 4:30 AM to greet us when we left for an early morning flight. Breakfast is made to order by the staff cook. There is a very nice patio. It is a 15 minute ($5) cab ride from the airport, and a 20 minute ($7) cab ride from the lovely downtown Malecon. There are 2 very large shopping malls (and restaurants) within walking distance. Not a bad place to stay if you're just spending a day on the way to the Galapagos, or if you're staying for a week or more for business. Be advised that most Guayaquil cab drivers do not know how to get there. Take the exact address and/or directions with you. If you go downtown, take the hotel's little map with you or you may have trouble finding a cab to take you back.
