We stayed in Casa de la Gringa for 3 nights. We were picked up from the airport by Felipe, the family's son. The trip from the new airport is about 50 km (30 dollar one way). We had a room with two large beds and private bath (just opposite to the room, short walk through the garden. It can get very cold in Quito at night, but sufficient blankets are provided! Annie and Fausto are the lovely owners. Annie speaks English, Fausto doesn't. Both help you in learning some Spanish and prepare great food (about 4 dollar per person for a meal). Free wifi and drinking water.
The casa is located in the neighbourhood Floresta (near the Floresta church) and is quite close to the Mariscal (new town centre). A taxi to the old centre costs 2 or 3 dollars.
