I stayed at the hotel for about a week over 2 separate occasions. The hotel is extremely well located, a 5 minute walk from the main square. It is very safe and the staff are very helpful. You can keep bags stored while you explore other parts of the city. The main courtyard is a good place to relax and...

The hotel itself is a beautifully preserved building that was once a family home and stable. We enjoyed the bright inner courtyard and the unique rooms. The...

Our first room on the 3rd level was oddly shaped and the bathroom had a bad smell and no hot water in the shower. After 2 nights we moved rooms and it was better and had hot water. So, my suggestion if possible is to look at a few different room because they are not all the same. We skipped...

Dear guest, Thanks for your comments, they always help us to improve. For example we just improved breakfast thanks for one of our guest comment, they are very useful to us.

This is a barebones hotel but the location was convenient, the courtyard was beautiful breath of air -- and the little used rooftop deck offered extraordinary views of Quito. Breakfast was included and was adequate, water cooler available 24-7 and there was a small grocery next door.

HIGHLIGHTS: Superior location in Quito's Old Town, just two blocks from the Plaza Grande. The hotel's historical Colonial ambiance was terrific, we felt we had gone back in time.
