Grand Hotel

The Grand Hotel shares the block with the largest and most spectacular cathedral in Guayaquil, it’s just a few minutes’ walk the Malecon with its shops, restaurants, gardens and museums, and a short walk from Bolivar Park known for its large population of iguanas. It’s the perfect base from which to explore the city.

The 182 rooms each equipped with all the amenities you would expect of a modern, city centre hotel, including cable TV, IDD phone, WiFi, fridge and en-suite bathroom. The décor fits with the modern design of the building and bright colours and patterns feature throughout.

If you wish to dine in the hotel there are 2 restaurants: the 24-hour cafe offers a wide range of hot and cold beverages, light meals and snacks.  The 1822 restaurant is a more formal affair, serving both local and international food. The welcoming Turtle Bar is popular 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.
