Guayaquil: Orilla del Rio

Orilla del Rio

This is an unusual find in Ecuador, and even more so in the modern port of Guayaquil: Orilla del Rio is a cosy boutique hotel with the feel of an upmarket B&B, occupying a mansion house which was until recently a family residence. 

It sits in a safe gated complex; the city’s highlights are not on the doorstep, but they're only a ten minute taxi drive away. With its pretty courtyard and fountain, the hotel is a peaceful place to stay in a bustling city. Taking a full breakfast on the patio is the ideal way to fuel up before setting off into town. 

Each of the six guestrooms is different, with smart classic décor and beamed or pitched ceilings. The staff are very helpful if you need help organising transport or excursions.
