“Cheap and clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

Nice hotel in the center of Ecuador's capital, Quito. Quiet and safe neighborhood. Clean room. Wi-fi available for free. Couldn't find a hair-dryer. Tv with Spanish channels only. Great breakfast included.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

I stayed at the Finlandia en-route back home and was pretty disappointed.

PROS:
- Location: safe and close to Quicentro, a big shopping mall which provides abundant (if unexciting) dining options
- Quiet-ish (if you insist on being lodged in the NEW part of the hotel): the concrete structure of the hotel tends to carry vibrations coming from all heavy-stumpers and bed-fallers (can't better explain these sudden booms!)
- Great cable on TV (I can't believe I am listing this but TV there was great)
- Decent complimentary breakfast
- 40-minute drive away from the airport

CONS:
- No business center (although Wi-Fi is complimentary: how easy would it be to purchase a cheap PC and printer and dedicate a room for it?)
- Terrible bathroom: small, shower comes with complimentary "hovering" shower temperature, going from scalding to freezing at you try to rinse. Terrible.
- Staff a little unpredictable: one of the desk clerks despondent, another one snickering, another one wonderful and helpful. It's a bit like service lottery: exciting.

Stay there if you are stumped. I personally much preferred Reina Isabel.

I just use it for sleeping, spent out most of the day but it filled the purpose fine. great located, just one block from the best shopping center in Quito. Small rooms though. Staff was very helpful. wifi internet connection was really fast and easy to access. you need your key in order to use the elevator to your floor so it's very secure.

The complimentary cocktail delivered to my room was only a finishing taste of a wonderful 9 hours I had at this hotel.
Late arrival and staff on their toes to greet and please and checkin was easy. Room was very clean and adequate with internet connection in place in a snap.

Breakfast buffet was a delight and a pleasure to see the staff attentiveness to the food items as well as the patrons. If hotel staff are happy in their jobs, it naturally spills over to the guests. Lucky for us~!

Room Tip: Worth the fairly quick trip from the new airport to the hotel.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Hotel Finlandia is located in excellent part of Quito, walking distance to several shopping centers, close to embassy of many countries (this affecting overall security feeling), and 100 m from great park.
Hotel has two parts - old, and new. Works are still being done in between of two parts, and this should be known by guests - since it affects functionality of hotel.
If possible - try to get a room in new part.

I had room in both old and new part, and had bad luck to have a leaking water pipe during night, and this should not happen to any guest ;)

Rooms are OK, bathroom is a bit small, in old part, and decent in new part of hotel.
Rooms do not have safe - and there is no separated safes in reception, and this can be problem.
Service is excellent, trying to help in any way possible, great English spoken on reception, but still - as long as works are in progress, be aware that it is not perfect.

Breakfast buffet is full of fresh fruit and do not miss any of fruit given, even if you do not know what it is!

Room Tip: Rooms in new part of hotel should be first option! Some of them have view on street, some have view...

Though our visit last week was for only a matter of hours as we arrived very late and left the next day for Cuenca, the staff was extremely helpful. Our room was delightful and the complimentary breakfast buffet was lovely. We hope to return for a longer stay and have already highly recommended Hotel Finlandia to a few people we met on our trip.

I spent a week here and was pleasantly surprised by the proximity to all of the customers I needed to see (oil companies.) All of their offices were less than 10-15 min walks from here and the hotel is right next to a huge park that you can stroll through during the day in perfect safety.

The breakfast was included and it's very basic, but covers the bases. I even asked if they could make me some egg whites one morning and they were happy to do that even though it's not part of the menu.

The front desk people are all very friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: My room (606) has a window that looks across into an office building and I wasn't comfortable le...
