"Super Family Friendly Hotel. Excellent location."
Staff at Unipark was so good to us. We were traveling with our 5 year old daughter, and they went out of their way to make her stay special - hot chocolate at breakfast, extra water and chocolates in the room. They even sent an adorable Unipark teddy bear up to the room for her. "Osito" is her favorite keepsake from our trip!
We loved waking up every morning to the view of the Cathedral and the iguanas basking in the trees at Parque Seminario across the street. It is a short, easy walk to the Municipal Palace and the Malecon 2000 from the hotel.
The hotel is part of a complex called Unicentro, which has eateries, shops, boutiques, ATMs, a bank and more, all accessible without leaving the building. Do a web search for Unicentro Guayaquil for more info.
Breakfast buffet had an excellent selection. I am really going to miss having ceviche for breakfast every morning! Room service comes from the same restaurant as breakfast, and was always deliscious.
I used the excercise room to lift once while we were there. Weights are old school, but they get the job done. Mostly, I ran outside at the Malecon (lovely and felt safe as solo female runner). I recommend taking a cell phone pic of the sign by the 5th floor elevator so you know when the excersize room is open. Hours vary.
Initial musty smell of entry and 2nd floor reception unavoidable in Guayaquil's hot, humid climate. Do not be put off. Rooms are clean and by 3rd day we no longer noticed.
Was meet by hotel shuttle even called hotel 3-4 hours prior to arrival.
Modern hotel 3-4 minutes from airport. Room was large and clean.
Everything worked. Bed was firm. View restaurant had good food selection and food tasted good and fresh
The Palace Guayaquil, opened originally in 1958, is a smaller quaint hotel that has been redecorated with a modern touch. The staff is great, both helpful and numerous. The room we stayed in was spacious and very well kept. The hotel restaurant is excellent and I can recommend the locro de papa and caldo de bola for those who are into Ecuadorean cuisine.
