We stayed in Daniel's loft for 6 days before returning home. Although it is truly in the center of the colonial area, it is very quiet and secure with a metal gate and 24 hour guard, and both guards are exceptionally helpful. It has a beautiful little courtyard with lots of potted plants and flowers that Alberto the guard tends to. Easy to walk to colonial sites, four blocks to Plaza Grande and great restaurants. There is a TV, which we didn't use at all - and the internet WIFI is strong. There is also a boom box/stereo and some great music CDs in the house. Beds are decently comfortable up in the loft and it was really handy to have a washer and dryer in the apartment. The door/entrance to the complex is hard to find, but Host's photos and map help a ton. great place to stay while in Quito.
Honestly, this apartment was wonderful. A little hard to find but well worth the search. The building is well-situated in historic Quito, a few blocks away from Teatro. Lovely entrance through a quiet courtyard. Security guard is on duty 24 hours a day, and they were all very helpful. Comfortable bed. There is a rather open staircase and loft so you may not want to stay with very young children, but for my school-age children it was perfect. And owner was very communicative when we couldn't figure out how to turn on the hot water. I'd stay there again anytime I visit Quito.
If you like to explore the historical part of Quito, this is the ultimate place where you can come and go (24 hour security). It is quiet and convenient to all! The apartment is spacious and luxurious for 2 people.
Staff is wonderful and helpful.

We stayed for a week. The loft was conveniently located - walking distance to most attractions. The building was very secure with 24 hour security. The loft was lovely and very clean. It had everything we needed and the washer/dryer worked. I will say that the bed clothes and towels were quite worn.. They could use an update. Also, not a good choice for a light sleeper or a late riser.. The city buses start running before 6:00 a.m. They are very loud and very frequent. However, overall a good experience.
