“Nice and convenient hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

The hotels is in a very good location, close to the entertainment district and Plaza Foch with all the great restaurants and bars. The hotel is very clean and beds were very comfortable. The rooms could be bigger but the bathroom was large and the shower was great. The decor is a bit creepy with lots of saint statues - our room actually had a few! You could also hear everything that was going on in the courtyard and every single move of our neighbors upstairs. The breakfast was ok, not a lot of options, just eggs, bread and fruit. But overall, a decent hotel.

I stayed at this hotel with a group so I am unsure of the rate paid. The hotel was very nice even though our room was a little cramped. I am surprised to read that the hotel was built in the late 90s as you could hear people walking above you and conversations throughout the building. The security was very good with guards walking around periodically. Breakfast was nice and better options than other hotels I stayed in on this trip. Walking distance to a main square with restaurant and bars. Pretty happy overall only complaint was noise.

This hotel was useful in making a number of transition stops in a tour through Ecuador. I stayed at the hotel four different nights during my two weeks in Ecuador and found it a good place to use. With a new airport it is now an hour plus drive from the hotel when there is traffic which is almost always,. it's in a nice residential area and there is parking for picking up and dropping off passengers.

Rooms range from cramped to adequately large, it is neatly kept and the staff is fairly attentive. Downsides are that on one occasion a student group kept my group up all night and little was done to keep the noise down. The restaurant is at best, average, and has a very limited menu so is best avoided. There are nearby options available. Overall, a decent stopover. tvawter

We stayed here on 3 occasions during may 2012 and found it to be a great little budget hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast in a nice courtyard.
The rooms we were allocated were a bit hit or miss. On the first visit we had a suite which was very large and more than adequate for our stay. On the second and third visits we had one very small cramped room and then a slightly larger room but still on the small side. It would be worthwhile asking for the larger rooms/suites when booking as we payed the same rate across all our 3 visits.
The hotel is centrally located close to a lively bar, restaurant area and we felt totally safe walking the streets at any time of day or night.
It is about a 45 minute walk to the old city region in Quito

Room Tip: See above re requesting the larger suites as we payed no more for these

The hotel is one of those hidden places, located very close to the Mariscal and Plaza Foch, Wi Fi works very well and Internet speed is very good,
Staff was very friendly, breakfast was a lot better than I expected, with three different types of bread, fresh natural juice, home brewed coffee.
If you want a nice place to stay, with a very reasonable price, this is definitely the place to stay.

We had a room not in the main building, but in the patio. There is a very dark and little double room and 2 very friendly large rooms with 2 single beds. I think this 2 rooms are the nicest! We got to a quite empty hotel without makeing a reservation and booked 2 rooms for 3 nights, each night for a couple costs 67$. We couldn't get a better discount then 10% off the price..... The staff was great!!!! Thanks again for your help! The first evening we staied at the hotel and eat at the connected restaurant.......don't eat there it's worse then terrible!! But the breakfasts were really o.k.

Room Tip: at the patio!

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.

Room Tip: The junior suite is worth the extra money.
