Continental Hotel Guayaquil Reviews
Hotel Ecuador May 09, 2008
My travel partner and I picked Hotel Ecuador because it was recommended by a prestigious guide book. Apparently, you cannot believe everything that you read. Our room had lots of bugs, practically no windows (there was one window, but it did not let in any light), and, despite the presence of a fan, totally stagnant, hot air. Sitting in the room made me feel so claustrophobic and warm that I often became ill.
The surroundings were not an improvement. We were near Parque Centenario, but we were also near a dangerous neighborhood. One day, when we were walking back to the hotel, a man followed us for five blocks. It was unsettling. It should be noted that we did not feel unsafe in the hotel because there was a security staff.
