Spent 4 nights at Casa San Marcos and recommend it highly. Mayra is a lovely lady and her staff were warm, friendly and very attentive to our needs and requests. The hotel is in the Old Town and its location provided easy walking access to the town and its sites. The hotel is in a nice quiet street.
There were three of us and we had a triple room. Our room was in a converted attic which was a rustic and very comfortable. It was very clean and of a good size. As we were tall we had to watch bumping our heads on the beams at the low parts. The bathroom was small but it was modern and worked perfectly. There was a skylight in the room which let in plenty of natural light and gave a bit of a view of the surrounding hills. I'm a light sleeper and I found the skylight kept the room a bit bright but my trusty eye shades fixed the problem.
The sitting rooms were large and very comfortable. The rooms and the entire hotel is decorated with all types of wonderful art and beautiful fresh roses. We dined outside which was undercover with a view of the surrounding hills. The breakfasts were excellent, I particularly enjoyed the eggs.
We were there for New Year's Eve and had a terrific night. Mayra took all hotel guests to the local fiesta and put on a special dinner with entertainment - it was excellent, a fun and first class night. Thank you Mayra.
I would love to visit Quito again and if I do I will stay definitely stay at the Casa San Marcos.

- Casa San Marcos, a house of treasures Publicado el 10/Noviembre/2011 | 14:51By LANCE BRASHEAR on the Miami HeraldCasa San Marcos - a boutique hotel along what is slowly becoming a cultural corridor in central Quito - was, until recently, a house obscured by time. But the passage of time has a way of not just hiding treasures, but also revealing them when the right person comes along. The name Jose Jaime Ortiz was all but lost as the architect of Casa San Marcos until archives discovered in recent years revealed the hand behind the craftsmanship. Ortiz is now recognized as one of Quito's most formidable architects from the turn of the 18th century and is credited with a dozen structures in Quito including the El Sagrario Church, the reconstruction of La Merced Church, and the tower of Santo Domingo Church. ... more less
