Located between the dock and town, it's convenient to everything (5 minute walk or so) but is quiet (unlike places in town) and only has about a dozen rooms. The rooms are simply furnished, clean, and...

We took a look at accommodation in downtown Isabela before returning to Wooden House which seemed a cut above many others at a similar price. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk from where the ferry arrives and another 10 minute walk to the town centre. The room we had was very nice with excellent air-conditioning. The staff throughout...

We had a great time in The Wooden House Lodge. Beautiful rooms, with good aircondition and ventilation an d a great clean bathroom. Staff was very friendly. We got a late check out and we could use the bike's of the staff for free. Pity that the wifi did not work all the time, but hey, these are the Galapagos!

Decent staff, very attentive staff. Near the pier, which was great, we were able to walk. Good food and comfortable room. Also very close to town, a short walk. All very clean. Special mention to the manager, Fernando, who makes all the difference to the hotel.
