This was a lovely place to stay. The owner and his wife are very kind people and very welcoming. The place was very clean and our room was cleaned daily. Beds were comfortable. Showers warm. WiFi wasn't great but isn't great on the islands. Breakfast was good with a great variety of everything. The place is a bit away from... More

We had three double bedrooms booked at Pimampiro with my family and we were glad to stay there! This place is very clean and new, beds are comfortable and breakfast is very good and abundant. They also serve breakfast very early in the morning (we had ours at 6am), which is often not the case of other hotels (starting around... More

The travel agency had booked our family for 4 nights in this hotel, quting it as "charming ", charging us premium price. Far from expectations .... This place is good for budget people or backpakkers, not for a family or people traveling more comfortably. Noisy as on a highway (main road passing there, important trafic), 600m from the village and... More

We didn't spend a ton of time in our rooms, but they were comfortable. Nice breakfast, friendly & helpful staff. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the water and restaurants, and if the hill is too much after eating your fill and topping it off with ice cream, the taxi is only $1 anywhere in the town.

This a real good place for your stay at San Cristobal, Galapagos. It's a small hotel, but it is a nice hotel. The owner is a very kind person and the rooms a very nice and cosy. The breakfast is in the small restaurant and the owner himself makes you a nice breakfast with fresh fruit and a egg. You... More

My husband and I in our late 29s visited the hotel in May 2016 . The hotel was very nice and clean, the people were very helpful and nice, breakfast was good. 10 min walk to the port. Only negative part was that the fridge and cooler were loud. The shower is a little tricky you regulate the temperature from... More

As a family of five we were very disappointed by this accommodation. This was our last stop on our Galapagos adventure and this accommodation was poor (the worst of our trip). It is located amongst many unfinished buildings, right next to a road, and a five minute taxi ride from town. There is nothing attractive about this location. The rooms... More

While most everyone spoke Spanish we were able to communicate with the staff. Everyone was great! the owner even made us breakfast at the crack of dawn before our flight. Great coffee and fantastic breakfasts! Cute pool for going for an afternoon dip. Was a bit of a walk to town, but easily do-able.

It is quite a bit above the main road but not very far to walk. If it is too far there are always taxis. They provide free bicycles which is great for getting around the island. The breakfast was OK but the room was very very nice. And it is also great to be able to plunge into the pool... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Hotel is 10 minutes walk from the San Cristobal pier or $1 for taxi. The rooms are apartment style with large living area, bathroom and large bedroom. My room was comfortable and very clean. WiFi was effective notwithstanding the remote satellite access. I used wifi to send photos and make voice calls... More
