 THE COAST [LA COSTA]
There will always be a place to stay. A comfortable five star hotel, a modest motel in a far town or a camp with a view of the stars, Ecuadorian hotels offer comfort, they adjust to every budget, and are capable of satisfying the traveller used to luxuries and the adventurer that goes over the world with his backpack.

In the months of a major affluence of tourists [December and January in the coast, from June to September in the rocky mountain range], it is recommended to reserve rooms with anticipation to avoid any mishap.

Note that the better hotels add 10% tax [IVA or VAT] and 10% service charge to your bill, so check whether this has been included or not. If you’re staying in budget accommodation [called hotel, residencia, hosteria, or pension], always ask to see the room before committing, and check on the noise level of the air-conditioning unit — they’re often very loud. These hotels will always ask for payment up-front, nearly always in cash.
Note that most hotels will charge a percentage for payment by credit card.

A single room is a habitacion sencilla, while double rooms come as habitacion doble [twin beds] and matrimonial [double bed].

Price brackets used in this guide are based on two people sharing, include all taxes, and are as follows:

Very Expensive over US$100
Expensive $50 to US$100
Moderate $25 to US$50
Inexpensive under $25
