“One of the best in Quito!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014 via mobile

This hotel is where I did my wedding reception. Everything was magical! The decor, the service, the food was excellent, and the event coordinator was the most professional yet caring woman. The staff was extremely kind and I am thankful for making my wedding unforgettable. I also stayed here and the suite was gorgeous! Especially the view!

Small, classy and elegant. Right on the main square.
One's every need is anticipated - including, in our case, breakfast at 4 am. Unobtrusive but impeccable service. Cozy bar on the 1st floor. Nice breakfasts.

I have trouble finding anything to complain about with this hotel. If I did mention something, I would just be nitpicking. From its location on the main plaza of the historic center, to the large, richly appointed rooms, this hotel is a winner in every way. The staff is friendly and the fresh flowers in the room are a wonderful touch.

We stayed 7 nights and can't believe there is a better place to stay in the old center. We were able to walk to all of the sites. The room was large with a seating area and dining table with chairs. The bathroom was large and richly appointed with a whirlpool tub. We had a small balcony overlooking the street, presidential palace and the mountains beyond. There were even some English channels on the satellite TV. The staff was excellent and helpful. I can't give enough kudos to this place.

One additional note, we did not experience any noise on the Saturday evening we were there unlike another review which mentions it.

Room Tip: I might try and avoid the rooms facing the main square. We originally thought we wanted to face the...

We stayed at many Haciendas and Hotels in Ecuador and this was by far the best. We felt totally spoiled the instant we arrived. Hot towels and a drink to refresh ourselves on arriving, a small bottle of wine and plate of appetisers when checking into the room, a jacuzzi bath surrounded by rose petals, I could go on and on. A totally blissfill experience thanks to all the friendly staff who made us feel so welcome!

I stayed at this hotel three times over three weeks, and loved every moment that wasn't on a Saturday night.
The staff is excellent and more than helpful. The restaurant is excellent, and the rooms are wonderful.
The problem is that they have weddings, quinceranos, whatever, parties pretty much every Saturday night on the fourth floor. One night on the third floor, I literally thought some one was using a jackhammer upstairs. Another Saturday on the second floor, it was still too loud for sleep. Luckily, I was moved on the first Saturday to the second floor, where the noise lessens enough for sleep by about 10:30pm.

It's difficult to come up with a fair rating for this hotel. On any night other than Saturday, it's easily a five. On Saturday, a two maybe ?
I would heartily recommend this hotel to any one, as long as their stay doesn't include Saturday.

Room Tip: Third floor has good views, but you want the lowest floor possible on Saturday nights.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon break.We mentioned in the booking that it was our honeymoon but didn't expect the bottle of champagne in the room or the lovely chocolates and all the roses and petals neatly placed around the room,it was beautiful to see.
The room was perfect,very clean with lovely furniture and real character and it gave the feeling that you were in a beautiful house rather than a hotel room.
The staff are excellent and very friendly from all the receptionists to the porters.
It is the little touches as mentioned before that separate good hotels from great hotels and this is definitely the latter.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Four of us had a late lunch in the beautiful and elegant restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. The service was excellent and friendly. Surprisingly the prices were very reasonable.

We ordered from the menu. Two in our group ordered "the world famous club sandwich," that came with French fries and cole slaw. It was okay, nothing to brag about. Another ordered sea bass that she claimed was delicious, but could not finish the large serving. I ordered goat stew with rice, avocado, and a small salad. That was flavorful and scrumptious, too much food for me. It was mmmm, mmmm, good!

I give the restaurant 5 stars!
