Recent reviews

Good 7.2 From 51 reviews

Very good 8.0
Front desk staff was extremely helpful to arrange tours and ferry tickets. The location was great, since you can easily walk to the pier, Darwin station and food kiosks. Only complain - they were sneaky and omitted some information. For example, they omitted to let us know that hotel was under renovation and that some areas will be restricted (pool) and there will be construction during the day. Also, wifi was only available in the lobby. Overall, it is a good place and location for the price.

I'd stay there again.
Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Spotless room. Lots of noise until sunrise one night.

Great site and location
Clean, roomy, great location, bilingual desk workers, private bathrooms with hot showers, and more! Only minor difficulty was there wasn’t a lot of pots/pans and dishes for preparing your own personal food.

Noise Level They Can Hear In Madrid!
Primary RED flag on Hotel Espana is NOISE LEVEL! Street traffic noise is extreme combined with the disco next door results in a high level of noise that I find acceptable. Would not stay again!

Poor 2.0
Don't stay here
If you like to receive the Wi-Fi and air conditioning that you are paying for, I highly suggest that you do not stay at this hotel. During the 3 days I was there, the Wi-Fi worked once for about 10 minutes. At first the staff said that it was because the island doesn't have fiber optic and the internet is bad everywhere. Upon further questioning, it was determined that it's because they share their internet among too many people. I don't know what that means, but I do know that I moved down the street to a cheaper place and the internet works perfectly fine. Most of the is the Galapagos, after all. Since I travel solo and need to be able to contact my family, having zero access to internet was quite stressful. Also, the air conditioner in my room was so loud that I couldn't sleep with it on at all. And, the owners let their children have the run of the place at all hours....making lots of noise, even as late as 10pm one night. The shared kitchen is filthy and has very few utensils, plates, etc. No one seemed to care about the happiness of the guests.
