For those interested in Quito's Old Town, I can recommend the Real Audiencia, where I stayed for several nights last November (2012). I found it to be an attractive, independent old hotel with a friendly staff, and a good location. It is just a few steps from a trolley stop, and not too far from La Ronda, a bohemian music-cafe scene, and the Old Town's only after-dark venue. My room, a single, was not exceptional in any way, but it was clean, and perfectly satisfactory. The hotel's pride is its restaurant (where a nice breakfast buffet is served), with big windows that overlook the Plaza Santo Domingo. My only complaint is a small one -- my television did not pick up any of the major English-language news channels, like BBC or CNN. (There was a BBC connection, but it was the rubbish channel.) However, since I don't travel to watch television, this is a minor complaint. Overall, I think this hotel is a good choice for the Old Town.
