The people working at the reception are very polite and willing to provide information about the surroundings, and the city. This location is very convenient if you are planning to visit the old part of Quito since it is not far...

This is a large hotel near the Parque de la Cultura, Foch, Avenida Amazonas, Reina Victoria the handicraft market and other tourist attractions. This is the greatest asset. The rooms are large and very clean, with large windows (I got one overlooking the park) but sparingly furnished, very austere actually. The bathroom I got had a chipped bathtub, and a...

I've stayed in this hotel for business about 15 years ago so I can offer some historical comparison. It has had some updating but is still in the average range. The staff are very friendly and mostly helpful. When I went out for a midnight snack at a few blocks away, the doorman watched me like a hawk to make...

A group i was traveling with stayed here last week and to be honest, the hotel needs to improve a lot as far as their building goes and their service. To say the least, they must improve their english in order to help groups like ours and as well as tourists that may visit. Rooms are out of date, with...
