Located in the heart of Quito, this beautiful 1,238 squared feet non-smoking apartment is a quiet oasis and only blocks away from fantastic restaurants, cafes, popular bars, shopping and tourism. Its’ central location makes it very easy to get around the city and it’s a great location for day trips, including: Mindo Cloud Forest, Middle of the World, Otavalo Market, Papallacta (Hot Springs), El Centro de Quito, El Panecillo. It is also located only five minutes away from Plaza Foch, the best place for night life in Quito. You will not be disappointed with the variety of restaurants, lounges and bars in the area.

Conveniently located one block from de 6 de December where public transportation is a breeze - you can hop on a bus to go anywhere in Quito or just take a taxi. On the same street you'll find a pharmacy, banks, and 2 blocks and plenty of shopping – all just a few steps away. One more block away you will find of popular restaurants and trendy pubs (most with internet access/Wifi) to choose from and spiral mall for shopping. Superman (the grocery store) is a short walking distance (only an 8 block walk), 2 blocks front the University Catolica. Quito is a very noisy, overwhelming city. If you are looking for an apartment to come home after a long day that is quiet, peaceful and safe, you have found it. Sincerely. Pilar de VeintemillaMore
