“Fantastic little hotel!”
Reviewed 19 March 2010

To be clear, I stayed at Hotel Fuente de Piedra 1 (not 2). I read some good reviews and the price was right, so I decided to check it out. I was not disappointed! The hotel is small and tastefully decorated. It has a beautiful courtyard with a soothing fountain that is a wonderful backdrop to enjoy free breakfast. The beds and pillows were comfy, though the rooms are not exactly soundproof, so bring your earplugs. The best part was the staff: Veronica and Wilson rocked! They were both incredibly pleasant and helpful with arranging transportation, suggesting restaurants, organizing take-out meals, providing much desired tea to a weary traveler and helping with any other questions that I had. It is rare to find such helpful hotel staff and these two individuals were the best I've ever come across! They made me feel very comfortable and at home. Much appreciated! I highly recommend this hotel!

Other reviews have said a lot - but just wanted to add my positive comments. Clean, charming, great location in Mariscal. Lots of restaurants within walking distance, so if you're just in Quito for a bit en route to mountains (otovalo, etc) or GPS - a great spot to stop.

Clean, reasonably spacious and located in the Mariscal near many restaurants and nightlife. Front desk staff was helpful most of time and spoke English reasonably well. Also there's 24-hour security and free internet right in the lobby. Off the lobby there's a charming sitting area designed with antiques, and throughout the hotel there are pretty plant displays. There's also a rooftop terrace that's available to all guests. Breakfast is included which is a nice plus, although the same meal was served every morning. Eggs, fresh fruit, an assortment of breads. Our room was very clean but it got chilly at night. Also, walls were very thin and we could hear guests from other rooms nearby. It was noisy, even though our room was furthest displaced from the street. In general this hotel is on a busy street, so if you're looking for absolute quiet the Mariscal may not be the ideal location for you. Overall the value was pretty incredible.

As part of a group I was alocated in this small Fuente de Piedra hotel in May (2 nights). We loved it very much: people at the front desk and at the restaurant are very kind. The manager, a young lady, is fantastic and very helpful and the property itself is beautiful, well maintained and extremely clean. This has the best hot showers I got during my entire trip in Ecuador and personally I loved the beautiful decoration, a typical colonial style hotel. I recomend it to everybody. Prices are very affordable. The web site they have is www.ecuahotel.com.

This hotel is in a great tourist location, though you might want to say in Old Quito instead. This hotel is in the "mariscal" or tourist area. Free internet and a nice breakfast are included. The rooms are clean, but small and noisy. Bathroom also clean, but small and no hot water. All in all, I would not recommend this hotel, though it was clearly clean and convenient. My big complaint is noise and lack of hot water.

Hotel Fuente de Piedra II is in a more convenient location that Hotel Fuente de Piedra I, however both are nice hotels near/in the Mariscal.

The breakfast is nice -- eggs, bread, marmalade, fresh brewed coffee (not Nescafe, as typical in Ecuador), and a small serving of fruit.

The shower is nice, modern, hot, and clean. In the room, there is a large armoire to unpack some belongings. Small shampoo and soaps were provided. There is no elevator. Some rooms are on the 3rd floor.

There is a upstairs terrace at this hotel which is not for taking in some of the city.

Some rooms near the street can be noisy, but this is very typical in Quito as the Mariscal is noisy.

The Mariscal can be dangerous at night, so take precautions.
