On our journey to Cuenca Ecuador we had an overnight layover in Guayaquil Ecuador. We stayed at Hotel Europa because of its convenience to the airport, but I would not recommend this hotel. First of all, the pictures you see on the Internet for this hotel must have been taken 20 or 30 years ago. Secondly, there is not a free shuttle to and from the airport like their website says, and thirdly, the price is too high considering what you get. Even so, the staff/owners were helpful and pleasant. Watch the video and decide for yourself.
