i stayed here as part of an intrepid tour. the hotel is amazingly understated, it's half garden, half hotel. rooms were big and bathrooms were good. breakfast was good (coffee, fruit, bread, eggs) if this seems like not a big breakfast you should know that it's an above average offering compared to other places were stayed. I'd definitely book this... More

We had a massive double room with good size bathroom. Very comfortable. Breakfast was good, especially the coffee. Really nice courtyard in centre of the building which was a great place to hang out. Really fantastic location as well. Excellent!

Great location, friendly, helpful staff..It is not a 4/5 star hotel, but the accommodations are nice. The breakfast was nice, and the staff was willing to help our large group with all of our questions and needs during our stay.

I would stay here again as it is very convenient to everything and though someone commented on the fact there is not a large breakfast I wouldn't complain because there are incredible bakeries near by with some of the best croissants you will taste for only 30 cents.

Did I say location? Yes, a short two block walk to the Plaza Grande gets you to the SF Hotel. It's a relatively cheap hotel that is well located. We spent nine nights there and know it well.

We (family of four with two teenage kids) stayed here for two nights. We had two rooms and there was more than enough space - though the room with twin beds was bigger than the one with a double bed.

Stayed here with my Dad en route to the Galapagos Islands. Beautiful courtyard, full of plants and flowers. Rooms have adorable, creaky old wooden floors, thin walls, and oldish, but comfortable beds with lots of blankets. Basic breakfast included. Staff was helpful and friendly.

It's a very old building with nice and cosy rooms. Good friendly staff. Breakfast is a bit to simple. Just one piece of fruit and a egg prepared by choice. And sticky bread. Location is right in the historic old town in between the Hotspots. Good place to stay

If you're looking to stay in the heart of the old city/Colonial Quito, this hotel has a great, central location. The garden area/lobby is very quaint. We stayed in a triple room with my 5 yo daughter and my best friend. The pictures online of the spacious triple room were deceiving. Ours was much smaller and cramped, with no windows.... More
