I really enjoyed the Hostal's charm and the staff's attention to our needs. Unfortunately my one day there was spent in bed with altitude sickness. They were very kind, with cacao tea and chicken soup. My traveling companion had her phone stollen at the local artisan market and Pablo was very helpful getting her in communication with the police so...

The staff are attentive and despite being in the heart of the downtown restaurant district eating in is s real pleasure as they have s truly excellent chef cooking everything fresh to order and a small but well chosen wine list. Only downside is the area is best accessed by taxi at night (perfectly safe in day) but taxis are...

Quiet, small hotel located near Plaza Foch (5-10 min walk). Very secure location on a side street. Downstairs is very cozy, like a B&B, with library sitting room and cozy breakfast area. Room upstairs was a little small, but fine. Updated and very clean bathroom. Night manager was very friendly, helpful. Only negative was that the breakfast was an additional...

This hostel is really a very nice small hotel. Our room was immaculate and very quite. We had wi-fi in the room. The front desk was very helpful and not only spoke excellent English but also was indulgent with our Spanish. It even had a friendly bunny in the beautiful courtyard. We highly recommend it.

A very kind couple own this business. They can pick you up from the airport (for a fee) even in the middle of the night. The business is most relatable to an American B&B. The property is a beautifully-landscaped compound with multiple small bungalows. Breakfast was a somewhat-formal sit-down meal with the owner and other guests. The food and coffee...

This small hotel is located on a seemingly safe and quiet street although during my stay they were doing construction next door & the daytime was noisy. It's located a few of blocks north on the busier trendier area of the Mariscal. Rooms are smallish but well appointed (with a desk and wall decorations) especially for the price. Bed comfortable...

We enjoyed our five nights at La Rabida as a base to visit Quito for our first time. Great service from our late night arrival and airport transfer, to guidance on sightseeing areas of interest, and shelter during a few days of cool, rainy weather. Our room was basic but comfortable, and included bedside lights for reading and heat for...

We were very pleased with our stay at Hostal de La Rabida. We booked online and the response was efficient and prompt. We accepted their offer to book a driver for transport from the airport. We arrived in Quito at midnight and thought that having somewhere there to meet us would be good. It cost us twice the price of...

Staff was very nice and the room was nice. Unfortunately the hotel is located in a noisy neighborhood. I heard loud music and noises well past midnight. Consequently, I found it hard to sleep and get a good night's sleep.

Dear Guest we apologize for the noise you had heard. The hotel is located in a residential area 8 to 10 blocks away from where discotheques are located. Nonetheless, as a frequent traveler we also feel terrible if we cannot sleep properly at night because of noise. All our staff is prepared to take measure to ensure the safety and...

Hostal de la Rabida is a treasure. Staff members are professional and attentive, and they treated me like family. The hotel serves wonderful food, and there are good restaurants nearby as well. The courtyard and living room with fireplace are inviting. My room was small, but inviting, clean and comfortable. If you're looking for a hotel with cultural and historic...
