Great service from our late night arrival and airport transfer, to guidance on sightseeing areas of interest, and shelter during a few days of cool, rainy weather. Our room was basic but comfortable, and included bedside lights for reading and heat for...

We were very pleased with our stay at Hostal de La Rabida. We booked online and the response was efficient and prompt. We accepted their offer to book a driver for transport from the airport. We arrived in Quito at midnight and thought that having somewhere there to meet us would be good. It cost us twice the price of...

Staff was very nice and the room was nice. Unfortunately the hotel is located in a noisy neighborhood. I heard loud music and noises well past midnight. Consequently, I found it hard to sleep and get a good night's sleep.

Nonetheless, as a frequent traveler we also feel terrible if we cannot sleep properly at night because of noise. All our staff is prepared to take measure to ensure the safety and...

Hostal de la Rabida is a treasure. Staff members are professional and attentive, and they treated me like family. The hotel serves wonderful food, and there are good restaurants nearby as well. The courtyard and living room with fireplace are inviting. My room was small, but inviting, clean and comfortable. If you're looking for a hotel with cultural and historic...

From when we first arrived, the staff at Hostal de La Rabida treated us promptly and respectfully. Our room was not ready upon arrival, we did get there earlier, but we were allowed to use the facilities. We even ate dinner one night, which was good. Also, we had breakfast. I recommend a stay here. Our room was clean and...

Hostal de La Rabida was formally a single-family residence that was converted into an inn. The inn is quaint. The room was cozy and clean. The staff was very welcoming and helpful.

Wanted a reasonably priced hotel in town but not too busy. This worked out great. Near lots of restaurants in the Mariscal neighborhood. A block grom a great hamburger and steak place. A few blocks from Foch Plaza. We also walked all the way to the old town, and it's a very inexpensive taxi ride home. Pleasant early breakfast. Friendly...
