Galapagos Silberstein hotel
The Hotel Silberstein is located on Santa Cruz Island in the town of Puerto Ayora, five minutes walk to Charles Darwin Research Station and 50 meters to the sea.
Coming by air from Quito or Guayaquil to Baltra Island airport, passengers will take the bus to Itabaca Channel (which is crossed by ferry to the north of Santa Cruz Island) and on to the town of Puerto Ayora on the south side of Santa Cruz. Crossing by bus from north to south the passengers will observe in its 42 km. seven different types of micro climates which spread out of the sea level up to the highlands reaching interesting desert-like places wet regions, finally getting to Puerto Ayora and to your home, the Hotel Silberstein (nee Angermeyer).
At the beginning of the 20th century, members of the Angermeyer family arrived at the islands and established the Residential Angermeyer. Surrounded by a beautiful garden it was an information center for tourist willing to get to know all the secrets the Enchanted Islands.
The new owners, Werner Silberstein and his wife Gabriele, of German origin, have changed the name of Hotel Angermeyer to Hotel Silberstein while maintaining the traditional hospitality with a modern service, ready to provide your accommodation with all meals to high standard in a natural paradise.
It has 22 clean, romantic rooms, each containing private hot bath, ceiling fan and air-conditioning, and a view toward the lush courtyard/swimming pool area. There are 11 matrimonial double rooms, 8 double rooms with twin beds, and 3 triple rooms.
Comfort, style, and attention to detail (not to mention price) are at a maximum at the Hotel Silberstein. A sandy space near the pool can serve as a barbeque-pit or playplace for youngsters. The garden surrounding the open-air bar provides a diverse, eye-catching landscape (as well as providing interesting data for plant and bird surveys conducted by the Charles Darwin Research). And the restaurant and its island-famous gourmet chef serve spectacular and unique dishes to please.
The hotel partners with the Galextur to offer four- to eight-day tours with overnight accommodations in Puerto Ayora.
