There are no good point of views about this hotel. I got a pre-paid plan for one week, but everything is so dirty that I get out in my second day. The breakfast its a lie, you only receive one bread with a half piece of cheese and coffee. The room its dark and smell terrible. Its a cheap hotel,... More

We spent a week here as a base for our time in Quito and surrounding area. It was very central for the walking tour of Old town, the double decker jump off, jump on tour bus and daily excursions to Otavalo, Mindo and Papallayca. It is an older building but the staff is very helpful, a breakfast included and at... More

The hotel is filthy. The rugs in the guest rooms are black with dirt. It made me wonder when or if the blankets were cleaned. The glass table tops in the dining area are cleaned superficially but are also black with dirt upon thorough wiping. The breakfast is adequate. The location is near the Plaza Grande. But most of the... More

Did I mention Location? Footsteps away from all of the Old City Historic sites, this hotel is the perfect base for exploration. My room was clean, very quiet and exactly what I hoped for. While I didn't eat breakfast it seemed more than adequate. The Hotel itself is dark and very atmospheric, but still welcoming. I was here four nights... More

The hotel is located within the historical center of Quito and it is a short walk away from Plaza Grande. In fact, one can easily walk to all of the attractions within the historical center itself. There is a Trolebus station about four blocks away in which one can take to go to other parts of Quito. The nearest Ecovia... More

We chose this hotel based on its great location to tour Quito and was the starting point for our families to meet for a family trip my in-laws were taking us on. The stay was nice but the checkout nightmare diminished the entire experience. Ensure your rate and payment before check in and if a pre-paid reservation, make sure they... More

First the pros: Nice interior courtyard, quiet, ok location about 10 mins walk from restaurants and the cathedral, comfortable, if basic room, modern computer with fast connection. The staff were nice enough though not overly welcoming. Cons: We booked this specifically for the 'airport shuttle' service we saw online - there isn't one, we just ended up getting taxis to...

This is my fifth trip to S. America and I have to say this hotel is a disappointment so far. The location is great as far as proximity to old town, however this hotel is not accurately represented online. First, we had contacted the hotel in advance for a pick up from Quito Airport. Despite two follow up emails, no... More

We only stayed one night because we arrived too late to look for another hotel. We didn't even had breakfast the next day, the service was terrible. The reception clerk was also the waiter. We asked for breakfast and after waiting for about fifteen minutes we left as we didn't get anything not even a single cup of hot water.

My wife and I spent four nights here on two occasions 10 days apart in two different rooms, one in the back and one on the street. Could be charming with some essential upgrades.

“The rooms on the street offer the sounds of daily life in Old Town... police whistles, beeping horns, pedestrian chatter and the party bus after dark! Delightful for us but maybe annoying for others.”
