I stay at this hotel twice a year when I travel through Quito. Rooms are relatively cheap and the quality of the rooms exceed the price. They just renovated the dining area this past year. The hotel is safe and it patrolled by guards, who are friendly and will help you with your baggage. The hotel is near some tourist districts and near the bus line. I wouldn't recommend walking alone at night in the area, but I'm not sure that I would walk alone anywhere in Quito. There is a little convenience store across the street where you can get water, drinks, and food.
The rooms are charming, simple, and clean. We always had hot water. They have reliable wireless internet and cable TV. We stayed in the junior suite one time, and loved it. I think it is worth the extra $30USD for the night.
The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast, which is simple and delicious. They also serve dinner and drinks, which are reasonably priced.
I have my favorite staff members. Jonathan definitely cares about your experience at the hotel. His english is very good and he will help you in anyway possible. Another guy, I forget his name, isn't as welcoming. When we requested a taxi to the airport, he called his buddy to pick us up. I don't think this was an official cab and the guy smelled like alcohol. Please make sure you are taking an official cab!
I would highly recommend this hotel. If you get a cab at the airport, be sure to have the address of the hotel. They do not know where this hotel is without it.
