Antinea was an excellent place for our family to stay! We stayed in the two bedroom apartment and found it to be exactly what we needed. It was really spacious and gave us the feeling of staying in a home in Ecuador rather than a chain hotel! The location was great. It was a close walk (less than 5 min.) to Plaza Foch, where we were able to find several restaurants etc. Azuca was a good one, as was Mama Clorindo. After being down there on a Friday night, we were definitely glad that we did not have a hotel right on this plaza on the weekends! We LOVE nightlife, but when we want to sleep, it is nice to not hear the base of all of the dance clubs. There was also a little store nearby, Don Julio, where we were able to stock up on water bottles, snacks, etc. for each day. (They have a mini-bar that is quite reasonable in the room, but this was a little cheaper.) We also liked that it was about a 10-15 min. walk to a beautiful park where our kids, ages 4 and 7, could play and we could browse the artisan market. It was a $4-$5 taxi ride to the Historic Center, or Old Town and a lot of tourist sites in that area. The staff was great. When we arrived, the toilet was clogged and they fixed it and apologized immediately. It worked well for the remainder of our stay. The maid was very attentive, even making sure my daughter's baby doll was neatly "cared for" on her bed each day. Breakfast was included. This consisted of coffee, hot chocolate for the kids, fresh croissants, toast, and homemade jelly. There was a different fresh fruit juice each day - all delicious! Veronica set us up with several tours throughout the week. We particularly enjoyed our trip to Otavalo with Guillermo. He was extremely knowledgeable and absolutely great to our kids and to us! Everybody who worked at the hotel was very nice. They spoke English to my husband and kids, which was great! ...and they spoke Spanish to me, which I appreciated! If we ever have the chance to go back to Quito we would stay there again!
