An absolutely beautiful property! Spacious room, helpful owner and staff. Poolside breakfast included! Not quite in the heart of everything but very walkable. Cabs are readily available for the airport or further distances. Very safe. Highly recommended!

Basic
Great that they offered late check-out. Breakfast was very basic - they didn't have orange juice (or any other juice), corn flakes (they had granola though), and they didn't have non diary milk.

Cheap is a better word than eco-friendly
We stayed at Hotel Katarma for one night after we stayed at Galápagos Sunset for 2 nights. We decided to stay in San Cristobal one extra day and Sunset was already booked. We have Katarma a chance because it was in the price range we usually like for a good hotel and it was within walking distance of the airport. For how much money you pay for this hotel, it is not worth it. I woke up in the middle of the night crying because I was so cold and this hotel only provides you with a sheet. NO BLANKETS. This hotel is cheap and acts like it is eco friendly. The towels were dirty when we got them and none matched — mine smelled 100% like Old Spice cologne and my boyfriend’s smelled like it was used to mop the floor. Then we tried to get breakfast before going to the airport and literally walked up to the counter where the eggs were being cooked and we were not helped. We were so confused what was going on because the only things we saw were fruit, yogurt, and a croissant. After over 10 minutes finally the manager/owner walked up to us to ask if we wanted eggs, after we literally stood at the egg counter and looked the cook dead in the eyes. The owner did help tell us how to get to the airport. That was the one good thing I can say… The art was funny and we enjoyed the quirkiness of this hotel. Price is not worth it for this hotel!! Go stay at Sunset or somewhere else.

Sehr gut!
Alles war sehr gut! Der Besitzer David war sehr hilfsbereit und durch ihn, wurde unser Aufenthalt noch schöner, da er uns mit Lokal Tipps weiterhelfen konnte. Sein Angestellter (leider kennen wir den Namen nicht) leistet sehr gute Arbeit und zauberte uns jeden Morgen ein tolles Frühstück. Der Standort ist perfekt und sicher, die Zimmer geräumig und sauber und das wir die Küche für unser Baby noch nutzen durften, war das i-Tüpfelchen.

Nice staff, amenities could have been better
This was a clean hotel in a nice location close to the port (but not too close where you are near the noise). Staff was very nice and friendly. Air conditioning and wifi were nice to have. Room was very basic with barely any amenities and there was hardly ever a staff member at reception if I needed something.
