Funny that lynn mentions that earplugs were essential, because I was there the third weekend of January and earplugs were avaiable at the reception. It is in deed a little noisy saturday nights, but stil I think it is probably one of the most quiet hotels around the area since it is in a little side street. It was very nice, clean and definitely good value.
Before getting there this hotel was recommended to me by a couple I met back home in Spain and later on when making a reservation the owner was very kind in taking the time to respond all my questions in several mails and helping me organize my time in Ecuador. The hotel also offers a cheap shuttle service from the airport, I actually had the same owner (a polish lady... I cant remeber her name) of the place waiting for me at the airport.
I had also a pretty room with a small table/chair and a window with a garden view which was great, since not many houses in Quito have gardens.
Definetly the best things about it are: the location, the friendly english speaking staff, free Internet & Wireless and the general fact that is a little cute house/hotel, very confortable with HOT WATER 24/7.More
