La Casa de Guapulo is nestled in a corner in a quiet neighborhood among the winding streets of Guapulo. I stayed here with a friend the night I arrived in Ecuador and the night before my flight from Quito back to the states. It is in credibly charming, with winding stone stairs leading to balconies with wonderful views and peeks at Ecuadorian life. The stairs go every which way and it is an adventure just to wander. The rooms are simple but clean and colorful. The dining area is charming as well and the food is prepared and cooked to order and delicious. The coffee was delicious. Last but not least the proprietors are very friendly, helpful and charming as well.
