I stayed there for a few nights on my way to Cuenca. I received excellent advice from the hosts about travel in Bolivia as well as other nearby countries. Great atmosphere, very clean, and quiet. Very, very comfortable.

Granted the house is quaint with nice decorations, but we thought it was a little too pricey for the location and decent breakfast. The portion was a little tiny for us. Wifi was mediocre speed. We also arranged a pickup, which costs $45, but we later found out that we could have easily gotten a taxi at the airport for... More

Jenny is a charming hostess who so kindly shares her cute, arty house with the rest of us visitors; she made our stay a delight. Her recommendations for places to visit were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble and we felt as if we were staying with a friend. The communal sitting room and breakfast area were cosy and...

Jenny and David are amongst the nicest people I've met. They made me feel so welcome, were so helpful and you did feel as if it was more like you were a guest than a customer. La casa is a lovely arty home that's been converted to a bnb. It's unique and had much more soul in it than a... More

We stayed in Ecuador for nearly two weeks, and La Casa Amarilla was our "home base." The owner, Jenny, is exceptionally sweet, helpful and friendly. It really is your home away from home! We went all over the country and kept coming back to Quito and Jenny's home as a way to touch base and get our bearings. She knows... More

We chose La Casa Amarilla as our first place to stay while in Ecuador, a very quaint home like atmosphere from which we could begin our journey enjoying the many sites and scenes of Quito. Upon arriving at the airport in Quito after a long day of flights, our ride from La Casa Amarilla (Steven) was waiting for us and... More

Jenny was very friendly and helpful. I had accidentally made my reservations for the wrong month. I had the right day but a month early, I didn't realize my mistake until I received an email from the booking company asking how my check in at La Casa Amarilla was. I immediately called the booking agency and they contacted Jenny and... More

If you are staying in Quito, this is your place. Jenny welcomes you like family and you will feel at home here. We spent only three nights and would have stayed longer if we could. A quieter neighbourhood away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and la Mariscal, though close enough to access easily. We loved our... More

First of all, your host Jenny is a ray of sunshine. She is there to assist you with any needs at all to make your stay as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. The breakfast each morning provided was fresh and lovely. One tip, La Casa Amarilla is in a residential area of Quito. However, just as with many places, remember... More
