This hotel was terrific in most respects - the only slight negative being its distance from town, but that has advantages as well (quiet area). Taxis are plentiful, safe, and inexpensive so this really isn't much of a drawback. We had room 11, the Etnos room, beautifully decorated with woodwork from a local artist. The staff were extremely helpful in all respects. The breakfast service offered a good variety of options and we also liked the roof terrace on the top floor.

Room Tip: Check out the decor online before you book - each room is decorated according to a certain theme. We were fortunate to get one we loved, but some others would not have been as comfortable.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Two nights upon arrival in Ecuador and another night between our time in the jungle and Galapagos. Hotel is nicely decorated, clean and with a wonderful staff. The location in the New Town area is good as it is close to the restaurants but far enough away that it is fairly quiet. You are in a city though so there was some noise (mostly a barking dog at the end of the block) but not enough to keep you awake. You can take a taxi to the Old Town area but we enjoyed walking there, although it was a 30 minute or so walk. We stayed in Room 8 which was very nicely decorated. There is a small balcony, but there were no chairs to allow sitting out. The common and lounge areas of the hotel are also quite nice. There is a small restaurant adjacent to the hotel. Both times we were in the restaurant, we were the only ones there! Although our early dinner hour is probably the reason. The food was good and you can't beat the convenience. The restaurant is closed for dinner on Sundays (also note that in Ecuador you cannot purchase alcohol on Sunday after 4pm).

It can get cold in Quito in the night and there is no heat in the rooms (not uncommon in this part of the world). However, upon request the staff quickly brought us an extra comforter as well as a space heater so we were never uncomfortable.

Our final morning was a 5 am departure. Although the breakfast is not served until much later, the young man at the desk was kind enough to make us coffee and toast with butter and jam before we left. Excellent service and hospitality from all of the staff.

All in all, we would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed in room 16, on the ground floor , next to the reception desk. It was quiet late on but busy and noisy before then. The room is reasonable, perhaps not as attractive as those described by other reviewers. As our first hotel in South America we have no direct comparison with others on this continent.

The service though was very poor, despite appearances. Breakfast is described as starting at 7am, but actually wasn't available until 7.45, guests from the adjoining hotel getting priority. The buffet breakfast wasn't set out until that point.

But the jewel in the crown came when we came to leave the hotel at 5 am, only to be told we weren't being picked up until 7, despite the message having been left at the hotel desk for us the previous day, it wasn't passed on. That is so very poor.

I loved this hotel. I stayed in room 4 the Inca room. it comes with a large roof top terrace that has a table and chairs. it overlooks the street below. It was great to sit on it with a glass of wine in the evening. The staff here is wonderful. They are helpful and just great. The food at the restaurant is great as well. They will deliver it to your room (and you can eat on your terrace). It was clean and large and fabulous. The only problem was street noise and dogs barking. But really not much of a problem. You are after all in a city. They also have computers to use and a roof top terrace if you don't get to stay in the Inca room. Price were so reasonable! The breakfast is top notch! The spa was cold and I don't think i8t was working while I was there.

I would stay here again and highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: As for the Inca Room. I hear others are a little funky in terms of decor

We came from a less comfortable stay in Peru and this was just perfect, and good price. I quite, modern, super clean boutique hotel with good service. The room was in good size, with modern and clean decoration, a small balcony with a great view. A good size bathroom with a really comfortable shower. A big bed, TV, wifi at the room, a small fridge and a safe. The hotel order taxi for. There is a good supermarket within walking distance that can be useful for those that backpack and need some supplies. A breakfast bufeet with fruits, eggs, strong coffee, cheese and other things to give you a good start of the day.
Would stay here again.
