I have rarely had such good coffee and never a cup that came from pot placed on a burner. Did I say the breakfast was good?
The location is what makes this place. The amplified recording of sounds from the Amazon piped into the atrium? Not so much.
The 20 or so moneybelt and passport necklace-wearing tourists also enjoying their excellent cup o'joe confirmed that this is a desirable hotel location and suitably familiar for western tourists. (You know if you have Musli as a breakfast option in Ecuador, you are serving tourists).
Most of the rooms have windows that look onto the interior courtyard. Read: Your curtains will always be drawn.
Downside of being in the historic district? We couldn't find a place to have dinner at 7pm. We were searching all over for our addresses until we found out everything closes at 6:30pm. Seriously. The neighborhood is *dead*. Think lifeless like a financial district after business hours. Nothing open. You are unlikely to even enjoy walking around past sunset because all the metal shutters are rolled down.
The taxi to life (and dinner) was, fortunately relatively short and very cheap.
