I stayed here with a group of 31 travelers just this past week. I thought that the Silberstein was very good given the context of the Galapagos. If you're not paying 5 star prices, you're not going to get 5 star accommodations. I think for the cost the Silberstein was a very good value. The rooms were clean and cleaned...

I stayed here only 1 night, after a cruise. The room was OK, but nothing special, a bit run down. The location is fine - not by the sea, but still in town. The staff were very helpful and pleasant, if not all that efficient. The main drawbacks are the lack of internet (there is supposed to be, and maybe...

Dear tnbms16, thank you very much for your review. at the moment of your stay we still had our installations which were some years old. They were not brand new, but quiet good. Though to not let them run down we decided to renew our pool and garden area. Also our rooms are getting a face lift. The new pictures...

I spent 7 nights at Hotel Silberstein. It was my base for exploring the Galapagos. Due to the hotel being full, I had the family room. It was cleaned every day, the bed was very comfortable and to have a fridge was a luxury.The meals were not only plentiful but also delicious. At first I thought the liquor prices high...

We spent one night at the Hotel Silberstein with a group. All 8 couples had rooms with one double bed. My husband is 6'4 and 230 lbs. I'm 5'9, and weigh 100 lbs less, so it would not have been a comfortable night. Fortunately, they were able to move us to another room and bring in a twin bed for...

Dear Shelley M, thank you very much for your kind review. Let me give you the good news, that we have incremented most of our double bed sizes. We now have several king- and queen size beds with top quality anti-allergenic mattresses so our taller guests will get all the comfort they need to relax at night and enjoy their...

The Hotel Silberstein is truly a paradise hotel in the Galapagos Islands.  The hotel room was basic but the necessities were enough for our 9 day stay.  I definitely recommend this hotel if it is your first time visiting the enchanting islands.  The room also included a delicious breakfast every morning (fresh fruits, eggs, bread and special treats (pancakes, French...

After many days on the different islands, we were in search of a nice meal. At first we went to a pizza restaurant, however they were booked for the evening.

This is a small, friendly, attractive and well placed family hotel. There is no tv, or hairdryer, or tea making facilities but the rooms are comfortable and the food good, although on the booze side foreign spirits were very expensive.
