We stayed here twice, once at the start of a Gate 1 tour of Ecuador (three nights) and again at the end (one night). The rooms are not large, and space is a bit limited, but we managed quite nicely. The room was clean and it was certainly nice to be able to just flush the toilet paper!! (At least there was no sign saying we shouldn't, so we did.) The location is ok. I think there may be some less desirable areas rather close, but there is also an interest artisanal market nearby. The breakfast had good choices and the fact that it was available very early the morning we flew home was very convenient. The desk staff was very helpful at getting us things we needed and the laundry was very efficient and good.
The minibar prices, however, were ridiculous. Be advised that there is an "Oki-doki" mini-market right across the street where you can buy water and beverages for a small fraction of the price of the same stuff in the mini-bar.
Our first room was not as spiffy or newly remodeled as the one we had the last night, but it seemed a bit more spacious and had a much better view. While the last one was considered "Premium" and had some extra little amenities, I regarded the one at the start of the trip the more habitable.
