“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

I stayed at the Hotel Barnard for 10 days in May and found it to be comfortable, safe, and close to the restaurants in the Mariscal. Rooms are large, many with bathtubs. Hot water not a problem. Ask for the buffet breakfast which offers fruit, cereal, yogurt, eggs, a breakfast meat, 2 juices, breads, coffee, and tea. If you are an American they may offer you the American breakfast but the buffet provides more options. Service was always excellent with concerns being dealt with immediately. It is on a busy street so request a room away from the street. I'll be returning to Quito next spring and will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for buffet breakfast and room away from the street. If you need a taxi ask the hotel to call for...

The service was very pleasant and the room was extremely clean. The room was larger than most hotel rooms, the beds were comfortable and it was an overall great place. The traffic outside during the day is heavy but quiet at night and we heard no sirens during the time we were there.

Room Tip: It is only a few blocks from Parque El Ejido and close enough by taxi to Mariscal where the clubs ar...

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2010

I arranged a nights stay in the Barnard Hotel for my daughter after 5 weeks travelling around Ecuador. This was by a long way the very worst experience of her trip, with the $3 a night hostels she stayed in on occasion coming out better.

When she arrived, the receptionist denied she had a reservation, even when she presented the confirmation. They refused to let her call the reservations office for over an hour before conceding. Upon finally realising that she did indeed have a reservation, she was put in a standard room, not the superior room I paid for. No apology. She was told they did not do airport transfers, even though it is on their website (one of the reasons I chose this hotel).

She ordered a wake up call and a taxi, and arranged for a packed breakfast, as she was departing before standard service started. No wake up call, no breakfast, the taxi cost 300% over what she was told.

We tried to call her room to ensure she was up and the reception just put the phone down (6 times).

And as for the way they looked at her because she carried a backpack, think of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman on Beverley Hills Boulevard.

Absolutely the pits.

The hotel is great however it is right across the street from a major hospital. The sirens were a definite sleep killer. Excellent food, service, staff and room. If the noise isn't a concern it's a great place to stay.

just stayed here for a week with a medical mission group as it is across from the military hosp and the hotel was very good. great service and very friendly staff. check room before you settle in--there were a few rooms that were musty and not remodeled yet but most were great. walkng distance to nice park with art on weekends and only a few dollars taxi ride to plaza foce and old town. includes the comforts like hot water, internet, refrig, resturant with good food etc
