Manso Boutique Guest House
Fostering a friendly ambience, the Manso Boutique Guest House has a colorful and slightly eccentric interior design with arty touches and hip retro furniture. All air-conditioned guest rooms have their own identity and character and may come with private or shared bathrooms, living areas, windows toward the interior patio, balconies facing the river, cable televisions and DVD players. As an alternative, there are shared, gender-specific dorm rooms with bunk beds. An on-site spa, MansoVital, offers a variety of body treatments using natural products for healing and beauty, such as reiki, reflexology and massages.
Functioning as a cultural center, Manso organizes ecofairs and monthly bazaars to highlight artists and designers of the area. There is live music on Thursdays and milonga, a tango-like dance, on Fridays. The hotel's BazaArte souvenir store showcases Ecuadorian crafts with a focus on recycled art. Like a permanent gallery, most items in the hotel rooms and public spaces are for purchase, including lamps, masks and paintings. Guests can also take tours in and around Guayaquil with the hotel, valuing sustainable and responsible ecotourism.

Food & Beverage
There is a fridge in the lobby area, stocked with natural snacks and beverages.
