Hotel Del Parque
The Latin America Travel Company Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Located in the upmarket Samborondón neighbourhood and within Guayaquil’s Parque Histórico on the banks of the Daule River, Hotel del Parque is a tropical oasis in a unique and tranquil setting. The historic building started life as a hospice in the 19th century before it was meticulously restored and re-opened as a boutique hotel. All the interiors were decorated by top designer Julio Vinueza who created a classic modern style whilst retaining all of it’s original republican era charm.
The result of an ambitious four year project, Hotel del Parque is an elegant, charming and luxurious hotel in a wonderful location
