Solid rooms and good location. Breakfast very basic. Service not great. Sometimes no one at front desk or around to serve breakfast. Staff also not super helpful with cabs and transportation. I appreciated the mostly quiet rooms and cozy design, but service was substandard at this price.

This is a 1940's elegant mansion which is now a family owned guest house located in the Mariscal and only a short walk from the restaurants at Plaza Foch, the native market, the elegant shops on Juan Leon Mera, El Ejido Park and Mueso Banco Central. Each room is unique and all of the furnishings and decorations are old Quito.... More

2 males,  mid-twenties,  for 3 nights leading up to new years. Experience was good, but not great. The owners and staff appear to be honest and decent people. But the bottom line is that they work in a service industry, and the proper assessment of their service is therefore economic. The question you need to ask before staying at any... More

A great base close to the tram line, places to eat, and an artisan market. Rooms are very spacious. The rooms in the back courtyard are the best and quietest. We really appreciated how accommodating they were in keeping our luggage for free. It was so convenient not to have to leave our bags for the Galapagos when we went... More

We had a terrific experience at Los Alpes. The rooms were very comfortable, and we were given a choice of rooms when we arrived. We were able to have 2 rooms next to each other, which worked out great as we were traveling with our 20 year old son. There was always hot water, but you sometimes have to ask... More

The staff was very helpful, they arranged our transportation, stored our luggage while we went to the Galapagos, suggesting restaurants and sites to see. The hotel is very charming, and the breakfast is very good. This was our first trip to Quito and I wont hesitate to stay there again when we return.

We stayed here for one night on our way back home. The place is an old house, jam packed with furnishings, pictures. The rooms were clean and pleasant - we had a suite with a private bathroom.They had bottles of water in the rooms. Location is convenient - many eating places and a supermarket nearby. The owners are Italian and... More

Everything was perfect from the time of arrival until the time we checked out 4 days later. We had breakfast every morning from 7 to 9, but one morning we didn't get up out of bed until 10 and they still offered to prepare breakfast for us. They were extremely helpful in suggesting places to see in Quito. They were... More

Besides being in an excellent location for tourists - right in the Mariscal/New Town area and close to the Historic Center - Los Alpes is a cozy place to stay. The family that runs this place is very kind and helpful. They've also done a great job keeping the rooms clean and comfortable. You won't have a flat screen TV... More

Let me focus first on what I value the most: quick check-in (within 5 minutes, just wow), clean room, friendly staff. All was exceptional at Los Alpes. I arrived t midnight (my plane landed at 11PM), and the owners allowed me to keep my room till 9MP next day; I greatly appreciate that. However, what really is valuable in the... More
