Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눇The beds were comfortable, the breakfasts were great with fresh fruit, juice and eggs, and the breakfast rolls were so fresh. The owners were so hospitable and treated us like good friends. We had dinner together and played card games. A lot of this depends on your attitude and willingness to interact with them in a similar manner. Their English isn't good and neither was our Spanish but they tried to communicate with us. We had no trouble at all.

눉Nothing to complain about at all
눇This place really needs to be told about. This was a luxurious place to stay. Rooms were beautiful very comfortable. Nice furniture. It looked very new.Lovely marble tile floors. Great breakfast. Lovely staff. Helps if you know a bit of Spanish. Best value for money I've found in Ecuador. .

눉Couldn't get a receipt upon check-in or even check out. Therefore I believe I checked in with $100.00 cash. Upon checkout they said I checked in with $80.00. Left a bad taste in my mouth. A receipt would have eliminated this discrepancy. I also couldn't find an English station anywhere on the TV. No Satellite guide was available.
눇Location, clean, for the most part friendly except the checkout mentioned in the don't like section.

눉Room was great but the bed was a little too hard for most.
눇Great place to rest up. Very attentive staff and manager. Very quiet. Good location, close walking distance to everything in town.

눉There is no English spoken here. Anita tries and is lovely. Has to go pick up her children for about 20 minutes each day, which means, if you are out and about, you can't get in at that time. Must ring a bell to enter the property.
눇Clean, friendly, accommodating. Pleasant homemade breakfast at a very reasonable price.

눉Extremely noisy neighborhood. Buses come rumbling in and out very close by, honking their horns. The people across the street partied loudly until after 06:00 one morning. The other people have several trucks that they are always backing in or out. One truck's motor makes another's alarm go off. Every time. Terrible choice of location to put a hotel where people expect to do what, exactly....sleep. It was either a long wait for hot water to come through the pipes, or one day, it didn't come through at all.

눇It is a hidden gem in the heart of Cotacachi. Very close to the town square and shopping street. It is a very clean hotel run by a local friendly couple.

눇The warmth & friendliness from all was wonderful for our entire stay. We were met graciously by the owner & given a tour of the grounds. Afterwards, we were shown all the various fruit trees in his back yard. There's a little patio overlooking the back where we had a nice breakfast the following morning The entire hotel/hostel was immaculately clean . El Roy is on a quiet street conveniently located few blocks from bus station, large church& park, center of town. We would definitely stay there again on a visit to Cotacachi

눇This new and lovely hotel is sparkly clean and very comfortable. The breakfast served by Anita is delicious, and Colonel Ramon Sanchez is a gracious host who goes out of his way to make guests comfortable.

눇I stayed at El Roy for 11 nights and had an outstanding experience. Having been a business traveler for over 30 years, I know what is important to me while staying at a hotel. El Roy is extremely clean with a great bed and plenty of hot water. I always felt very safe. My breakfast was prepared fresh each morning and I enjoyed every bite. Roman treated me like family and I felt very welcomed. No doubt I will return to stay at El Roy again!

눇Everything. El Roy's centrally located to most of Cotacahi's points of interest. Friendliness and hospitality of Col. Roman Sanchez, the owner and Ana who made us very good breakfast during our stay and attended to our needs. Clean and homey place to stay and great value for the money. Will stay there again and recommend to friends.
