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.
"Room good for an overnight stay although air con which was necessary was very noisy. Good breakfast. Helpful staff."
