The Staff

Throughout all our stay the staff was extremely helpful, they made sure we had all we needed and always helped us with a friendly smile.  Having arrived late, we were escorted to the private parking.  We had some questions about the main things to see and all were answered by the friendly staff in the reception.

The ideal location in the heart of the city was one of the reasons for choosing Grand Hotel Loja. I also valued their positive reputation when it comes to customer service. The friendly, helpful bilingual staff was ready to make our experience in the hotel and the city enjoyable.

We arrived a bit late from Cuenca and had planned to go sightseeing that night and leave early the next day, so it was perfect to find a place that offers comfortable accommodation, just minutes away from the main square of Loja.

About the Hotel

Location for many of us is extremely important when it comes to deciding where to stay. Grand Hotel Loja is located only 4 blocks away from the main square of Loja and also a short drive or walk to all main attractions.


After a long day sitting in the car, for us it was wonderful to find our rooms to be modern, spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean.  It also included a large TV with cable, wi-fi, and a big desk perfect for working.

The bathroom was large and had running water and soap, shampoo and a dryer are provided as well.

The only recommendation,  for light sleepers, is to choose a room away from the entrance, high or not facing the main street due to a bit of traffic noise at night.

Jacuzzi, sauna and turkish bath are also offered to guests who want to relax and recharge. Unfortunately we arrived to late to enjoy these services.

Breakfast and other food

After a good night sleep we woke up to a delicious complimentary breakfast, served from 7am. Breakfast included eggs, fresh fruit juice, jam, butter, bread and coffee/tea.

The restaurant has wonderful food and guests who want to enjoy some Ecuadorian and international cuisine can do so without leaving the hotel.
