What a find! Our driver located this Hostal and what a surprise awaited us behind a stucco wall with a plain wooden door. We were greeted and welcomed into this little paradise. The reception area opened up into a dining room, sitting area, bar and entry into a courtyard that was home to a very elusive long tailed hummingbird. Our...

My daughter and I booked a one night stay and then were unable to travel because she became ill. They had the ability to extend our stay an extra night, good business right?! But I want to comment on how kind and thoughtful they were regarding her. Specific tea was suggested to help her and specific food requests were honored....

We stayed with extended family in a suite. The rooms were large and very clean. Ample hot water. Very family friendly. Meals were delicious. Assistance was given calling cabs and making travel plans. Unfortunately during our stay several family members became ill. Suzy provided us with her personal vehicle, driven by the gardener to find a pharmacy open at 7...

We stopped here in the hopes they would have rooms available and they did. It is only a few blocks walk to the Market Place. We truly enjoyed our stay here as well as Suzy. She and her staff were very pleasant, helpful, and attentive to our needs. Suzy even helped us translate our trip plan to our driver/guide (he...

From the very day I made a reservation on-line, I knew I had made a good choice! Suzy, the Posada's wonderful manager, answered all my e-mails at once with important information, and from the moment we checked in til the minute we left three days later, she continued to be both extremely helpful and super warm and cordial. Suzy has...

We spent two nights at Posada del Quinde recently. Susy was a dream to work with! Every e-mail of inquiry I exchanged with her was answered promptly and clearly in English. I felt as though we were friends before I actually met her. Susy arranged for a van pick-up at our hotel in Quito and a return to the airport...

We stayed at Posada del Quinde for three nights. After a few hours, we were dreaming about living there permanently! This hotel is more like a very spacious country mansion. All of the rooms look out onto a really beautiful private garden that is so large it is more like a park. The Posada's restaurant is known to everyone as...

We really enjoyed staying 2 nights in this beautiful hotel, centrally located and within walking distance from the markets. The rooms are clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated with local art. We ate breakfast and lunch al fresco out in the lovely garden full of flowers and birds. The food is fresh, locally grown, organic and simply delicious. We highly recommend...

My wife and I spent 2 wonderful nights at La Posada del Quinde. The rooms are cozy, clean, and quiet. All of them open out onto a large beautiful, pastoral courtyard. The breakfasts, which are included in the price of the rooms, are marvelous. My wife chose the fresh fruit, and yogurt--all that healthy stuff. I always went for the...

Our mission trip group stayed at the Posada del Quinde in January. We had over 25 people in the mission group and the hotel staff was very accommodating and welcoming.
