5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for 3 days. The place is clean and quiet. A good breakfast is included. The airline lost our luggage and Yolanda helped us get it back. We will be passing through Quito again on our way home and plan to stay there again.

After a long flight, it took us over 2 hours to get out of the airport in Quito and wasn't expecting our transportation to still be waiting for us - but Carlos Jr. was there. The hospitality of the family is amazing and they helped... More

Wonderful hosts! Super friendly and great accommodation. Carlos Sr. Picked us up from the airport and 1am and was all smiles. Yolanda and Carlos will tell you anything you need to know about Quito and help anyway they can. Will stay here again in a heartbeat.

Yolanda, Carlos Sr. and Carlos Jr. are outstanding hosts who go out of there way to help you and make you feel at home. My wife,daughter and I spent 5 nights there and left feeling like members of the family. This is by no means upscale accommodation, but it is clean, secure, comfortable and quiet. We were there New Years... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. Yolanda & Carlos are the most hospitable people. Nothing was too much for them. The room ( a double) was great, the bed very comfortable. Yes the hot water worked. Sensational position in Quito, walk to everything. Highly recommended

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is located within a 10 minute walk of Plaza Foch (the main eating and drinking places) which is close enough but not too close that you are up all night because of the noise. Yolanda was a wonderful host and although she didn't speak much English, made us feel very welcome (possibly one... More
