The owner of the hostal, Alicia, was very sweet and accommodating. For example, on our first morning at the hotel we were up early after a rough bus from Colombia. Though the breakfast didn't open until 8AM she offered to serve us breakfast early. It wasn't until later that we learned that Alicia was the owner. We were staying in... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Quito this time because of the great hotel we found I'd time. It is in a great location right in the middle of old town. The first place we stayed at the begining of our trip wasn't near as nice. This one had a great spacious room on the third floor with a private... More

Wifi was a little weak. But we weren't there to hang out in our room so it didn't matter that much. Location really is perfect! It's a... More

Alicia Vega, owner and manager of Hostal Quito Cultural, has created an environment that is rich with artistic expression in an old mansion that has been in the family for generations. The three story building, in the center of Quito's magnificent historic district--within walking distance to most sites--has a central patio filled with exuberant tropical plants and flowers and artwork...

first off, this hostal has a great location for the old centre sites, and the staff are all very nice. Having said that, during our stay we witnessed that the breakfast staff, some mornings only one lady, were very overworked, with no support, which made us feel awkward at breakfast time. Breakfast itself was only warm on the most un-busy... More

This is a very picturesque hostal in the historic district of Quito. As in many Latin American hostals there is a central courtyard open to the sky. Their spoken English is only so-so, but I don't think that would be a problem. The people and staff were very attentive and helpful. They responded immediately to any problems, and provided us...

The best thing going for them is the hot water. It was the best shower I took in Ecuador. The breakfast was also good. The negative though is that our flight was after checkout so we checked out, walked around the city a while, and then came back to the hostel where our taxi would be picking us up. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostal Quito Cultural born of a XVIII century building at the hands of a French architect, this house currently consists as a heritage of Barrio San Marcos the oldest in Quito. With a rich pre-Columbian history, the capital of Ecuador was founded on the ruins of an Inca city, but offers everything a modern traveler may need. Still one of the best preserved historical sites in Latin America and the UNESCO declared world heritage. The location of the hostel is convenient because it allows travelers to move around the old Quito and know all the baroque jewels, like the monasteries of San Francisco and Santo Domingo, as well as the church and the college of the Company. The hostel rooms have all the amenities to make guests feel comfortable and can enjoy their holiday as they deserve, our main seal of the fraternity is offered by our staff. ... more   less
