Jenny was very friendly and helpful. I had accidentally made my reservations for the wrong month. I had the right day but a month early, I didn't realize my mistake until I received an email from the booking company asking how my check in at La Casa Amarilla was. I immediately called the booking agency and they contacted Jenny and...

If you are staying in Quito, this is your place. Jenny welcomes you like family and you will feel at home here. We spent only three nights and would have stayed longer if we could. A quieter neighbourhood away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and la Mariscal, though close enough to access easily. We loved our...

Your hostess Jenny is patient and acomodating. Breakfast is at 8:30, and gives you a great opportunity to meet other travelers, or practice your Spanish with Jenny. Jenny...

What a wonderful place to call home when we were in Quito. We discovered this gem on tripadvisor when we were looking for a place to stay while we went to the US Embassy to renew our passports. We live in Cotacachi, a couple of hours north of Quito and have the need to occasionally visit Quito. After reading the...

When I first arrived at La Casa Amarilla I met the owner Jenny. She gave me a tour of the casa and I mentioned how beautiful her home is. She was quick to correct me that this was in fact my home while I am in Ecuador. This sentiment is the feeling you get while you are here, Jenny is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome! Come experience an unforgettable adventure. "La Casa Amarilla," built in 1948, is one of the last buildings of Modern Quito that survived the urban modernization movement. The building conserves the history of its era, which we remember fondly in Quito, a city declared by UNESCO as the first "World Heritage Site" Conveniently located in the modern sector of Quito in a safe and peaceful residential area, La Casa Amarilla offers a perfect jumping off point to move about the city. In a ten minute car ride you can the historical center of Quito. In a 25 minute (2 km) walk, you will encounter numerous tourist attractions such as "La Zona Rosa," located in La Mariscal, the city cable car "El TeleferiQo," various community parks, and the financial and commercial districts of Quito. The Trolley and Metrobus lines are located very close to the house and several regular bus routes pass nearby taking you to any destination within the city limits.

“the blue/purple room may be the quietest, the red and green rooms are closer to the street which might be noisy although late at night there probably isn't much traffic.”

“All rooms are fine; just remember, Quito is the highest capital in the world in terms of altitude, so you will be a little colder than you might expect!”

“The red room is on the front upstairs and there is road noise. This did not bother me. The blue room is off the breakfast room and is very quiet because there is no window. There is a beautiful skylight.”
