The Grand Hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Guayaquil, within sight of the cathedral, just minutes from the Malecon wit its shops, restaurants, gardens and museums, and a short walk from Bolivar Park known for its large population of iguanas. It's also just a 15 minute drive from the airport.
The 182 rooms and suite are equipped with all the amenities expected of a modern, city centre hotel, including cable TV, IDD phone, Wi-Fi internet access, fridge and en-suite bathroom.
The hotel has 2 restaurants: one is a 24-hour cafe offering a wide range of hot and cold beverages, light meals and snacks, and the other is a more formal, multi-cuisine restaurant. There's also a cosy bar where guests gather for pre- and post-dinner drinks. Outside there's a courtyard with a swimming pool, waterfall and vertical garden complete with a large mosaic iguana. There are terraces where you can sit, and the area is flanked on one side by the large stained glass window of the cathedral.
"Very noisy rooms. Traffic noise from the busy road was an irritation. The air-con was incredibly noisy too, with it on the traffic noise was not so obvious but .....We had a night flight but had to check out of our room at noon. It would have been helpful to have the room available all day."
