Dear Mrs Sheridan The room you stayed has a main bed and a small bed. Most of the guests in that room do not use the small bed, so that bed remains untouched. The stain was in the small bed and apparently what happened was the guest who stayed prior to you stained that sheet and my cleaning staff did...

The hotel was well located, but there is no accessibility!!!! The rooms looked dirty with towels and sheets stained. The air conditioner was so noisy that we had to sleep with ear protection. Breakfast had no diversity!

Dear Eliane, I regret that you had such a bad experience in Manso. I will find out about the air conditioner that's making noise. Sometimes it is hard for us to find out about these kind of problems; it helps a lot when we are notified right that moment. Regarding sheets and towels, we renew stock every six months. This...

Manso is a unique and comfortable B&B. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I always stay at Manso on my way to Cuenca and on the way back to the US. Manso is an easy taxi ride form the airport.

This was our favorite hotel we stayed in on our South American trip. The room we stayed in was large. The view was beautiful. It had air conditioning (which was hard to come by in Ecuador). We were able to walk to the important places we wanted to see -- the ferris wheel and the lighthouse of Santa Ana. Taxes...

Guayaquil has many places to stay, Manso was our first option to choose. The place is close to the main atractions in Guayaquil. The rooms are modern, spacious and clean. The breakfast is tasty, the staff is friendly. We enjoyed our staying at this Hotel !
