This is a lovely hotel, located close to the Charles Darwin Centre. Jose took great pride in personally serving freshly prepared breakfast to his guests. We could avail of free water in the foyer to refill our bottles. We were not very comfortable with the lack of privacy using the bathroom .... in our room, (Iguana) the bathroom wasn't a separate room to the bedroom

A really lovely experience
The hotel is a lovely small hotel, conveniently located and our room was very comfortable. But the best part about the hotel is the wonderful service- from the time we arrived and the way we were warmly greeted we were made to feel special throughout our stay- right until the time we were put into a cab for our trip to the airport. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Perfect Home-Base in the Islands
I like small guest houses because of their attention to personal service and Hotel Palace Galapagos exceeded my expectations in many ways. The BEST breakfast ever -- always fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented. Staff was eager to accommodate any type of food allergy or aversion; in my case, vegan and they made it so easy with several courses every morning. They even made me a breakfast sandwich to take with me when my tour left before the regular breakfast began. My room was impeccably clean and the bed very comfortable. Hotel Palace Galapagos is perfectly located close to shops, restaurants, pier, and Darwin Research Center. All within walking distance. In addition, staff enthusiastically helped arrange ground transportation, tours, and ferry boat tickets; he also recommended wonderful restaurants with several vegan options. Everyone is friendly, attentive, and genuinely helpful. It is a lovely hotel, close to all kinds of activities, situated on a beautiful island with no hawkers. I strongly recommend Hotel Palace Galapagos as home-base in the Islands!

Excellent Hotel with Great Service and Location
This was an excellent hotel. The location was walking distance to the main street. The service was excellent, the hotel staff went out of their way with booking tours, information for taxis and other town information, added comfort in our rooms and daily breakfast. Our extended family is from Ecuador and we will stay again at this hotel when we return in the future.

Lower your expectation, make your stay happier
If you Came at the bad time. Not every was working. For example, no WIFI for the entire 5 days, waited for hot water in the morning and noise and dust from street demolition work. Also, I found their room inventory was not accurate. They claimed that basic rooms were sold out and yet the hotel just had two guests while I was there. I was forced to pay for an upgraded room the last day and yet I could not upgrade room because of the room is next to the street demolition work. I ended up over paying portion of my stay. The hotel is at least 3 or more blocks from every where. If you lower your expectation, it will make your stay a lot happier. The nice and friendly services from Sonia and Jose saved my vacation. They helped me with tours booking. your expectation, it will make your stay a lot happier.

Best place for family trip
The hotel manager is so kind and actively helps the guests go around the area. The hotel is very cleanly maintained. The breakfast is awesome, and it is served with local fruits, fruit juice, eggs, and bread. Visitors to Galapagos may have some difficulty touring the area, but she is willing to help them out. For my family, it was a fantastic experience. The location is a bit away from the main street, Charles Darwin Ave, but not that far. I strongly recommend this hotel for family tourists.
