Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was a calm hotel one block appart from the Foch Plaza. You can go bar hoping very easily and even if the street is lousy, the rooms are quietly. The staff was nice and breakfast was ok. I would like to add that the rooms on the low floor need more ventilation but that's all.

Top notch place to stay. You are not a guest here but part of the family. The place is very clean and the workers very hospitable. I would recommend this place to anyone that visits Ecuador. Make sure to say hello to Gaby (she is the manager and will guide you safely through Ecuador)

The place is great. The staff, especially Gabby are incredibly nice. The rooms are clean. The location is great as it is right next to Foch Square and near the Hop-on Hop-off bus line. This is a great place. I plan to return

We arrived late and unannounced yet yellow house were very welcoming. Both members of staff that we met were just brilliant. Lovely old building in the new part of town provide a quiet refuge from the busy mariscal sucre area outside.

The Yellow House is affordable, clean, professional, safe, and perfectly situated. Many great amenities are less than a 2 minute walk. The staff is unbelievably hospitable and kind. Highly highly recommended.

I spent three weeks in the warm hospitality of the family run Yellow House Hotel and with delight I saw the effort the staff put in to meet the expectations from the guests.
