Charming and homey, right in the heart of Quito - what more could you want? Well, unless you are here to party and hang out with other tourists, then by all means stay in new town, which we found tacky and over-priced. Okay, evening meals are reportedly a little harder to find in Old Town, but La Ronda barrio is...

My spouse and I stayed here at the beginning of our Ecuador trip, and had a lovely stay for three nights. The hotel is one of the few budget-friendly places we could find in Old Town, which we preferred to seedy, tourist-y New Town. The hotel is old and exudes charm, with nooks and crannies to explore. The courtyard is...

This may not be everyone’s taste, but the benefits of the hotel outweigh the negatives for the anti-Holiday Inn traveler. The feature that contributes to both columns is that the place is old. The negative is that the furniture is scuffed and there is a general feeling that the place could use attention. (The plumbing, though, worked fine.) The other...

Stayed twice - beginning and end of Galapagos Tour. Security date on street level. Very old building on second floor - creaking floor boards - rooms on small size - on-suites adequate - breakfast with voucher in adjoining cafe (no English in cafe) - you pay for available 24 hour tea and coffee - no evening meals - English on...

The Hotel is built around a courtyard filled with fern pot plants and the courtyard is covered with opaque arched roof giving a light filled dry area which is used for people to sit at tables to have a chat with other travelers or to access the free wi-fi (or the two computers provided for those without) and enjoy garden/conservatory...

I had decent rooms (stayed twice), hot water, and a great location in the historic party od town. Staff seemed disinterested, and breakfast was not very good and served by a snarky waitress. Free Internet terminals.

This hotel is located in the center of the historic districk of Quito, with easy walking distance to all the attractions. The hotel is an old Posada, with rooms on multi-floors, without an elevator (lift). the rooms are quite basic but confortable and the views from the upper floor are spectacular. The breakfast was good and the front desk staff...

Hotel San Francisco de Quito was, well, average. The property was nice, especially the common rooms. The actual guest rooms needed updating, better linens, though the blankets were warm, better bed coverings, better pillows, better curtains. The guest rooms also needed a good cleaning. It's not that the rooms were dirty, it's just that they weren't clean, like tip top...

the hotel is located in a very beautiful colonial building tastefully renovated, decorated with lots of plants and flowers and centrally located (meaning in the centro hstorico, a stone's throw away from plaza santo domingo, la ronda, the plaza central, etc.). this said, everything else is quite poor: the staff is unwelcoming, the common areas are dirty (note the layers...

Great location in the middle of old town, close to everything including many of the churches and squares. Hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The room was huge and bed was very comfortable. Overall, a very good value and a good choice.
