We had a terrific experience at Los Alpes. The rooms were very comfortable, and we were given a choice of rooms when we arrived. We were able to have 2 rooms next to each other, which worked out great as we were traveling with our 20 year old son. There was always hot water, but you sometimes have to ask for it depending on the time of the day(let it run for a little while and it does get hot). There was always bottled water available in the rooms for drinking. The wifi worked very well, which was particularly important for our son. We didn't need them when we were there but they provide lots of blankets. The location was good, near the Parque del Ejido, the artisan market, and transportation (trole). If you want to be right in the middle of things in La Mariscal, this may not be the place for you, but we liked being in a more quiet area that was still convenient.
Both Claudio Sr and Claudio Jr are extremely helpful and friendly. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They helped us figure out transportation to get places, whether by helping us get a taxi or by telling us exactly where to get the bus to get to Mitad del Mundo. They also were able to help us with all kinds of random things we needed, such as where to get our laundry done and where our son could get a haircut. They also saved some money that our son had accidentally left in his room while we were gone for a few days visiting other parts of Ecuador, and had it saved for us upon our arrival back.
We were able to leave our luggage while we did some traveling to other places. On our last day, our flight home didn't leave until midnight, and they let us stay into the evening so we could just leave from the hotel. We would definitely recommend Los Alpes to anyone traveling to Quito. There are certainly other places that would be a little cheaper, but this met our needs perfectly.
