Quito is interesting not only for the equator highlights but the town itself has become a safe and interesting place in itself. This hotel was a highlight of the trip with its antiques, art gallery, great breakfast and general ambience. Highly recommend the vegetarian restaurant at the end of the street as well.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel in Quito a week ago. We were travelling as a family (my husband, myself and our 3 teenage daughters).

The furniture was extra ordinary and the bed was super comfy. The bathroom was tastefully modern with great hot water. The only thing I missed is a mini refrigerator. I... More
