Penthouse, Mansion del Rio, Guayaquil, Ecuador

Mansion del Rio

Travel back in time with a stay at Mansion del Rio, a boutique hotel nestled in Bario las Penas, the old district of Guayaquil. Formerly a privately-owned home, the mansion was purchased by an English entrepreneur in 1920 and fully renovated before launching as a hotel in 2007.

Mansion del Rio is just a five-minute stroll away from a number of eateries, museums and gardens, as well as the Malecon Simón Bolívar boardwalk overlooking the Guayas River. Each of its six rooms are traditionally furnished, some with the original beamed ceilings and all evoking the grandeur of the glory days.
