I will return and recommand the Hotel to everybody; the location is great, the rooms are clean, the staff is very helpfulm and friendly. Perhaps June, July are not so good months (many American tourists); the weather is yearround nearly the same in Quito; so: choose another month, if you can.

After starting off my Ecuador vacation in La Mariscal, after visiting other parts of the country, I wisely decided to spend my final few nights in the old town. The location on the Plaza Santo Domingo was ideal - within easy walking distance of the newly refurbished La Ronda district, La Plaza Grande etc. The metro bus line was also... More

This hotel was one selected for stay in Quito for our tour group. Definitely a more European style hotel, meaning no elevator. The rooms were good size with plenty of storage space, much more than you often see in older hotels. Great location for seeing the churches and other attractions. The water was HOT in the shower, which we greatly... More

Perfect place to prep and recover from Galapagos before heading back to CA. Yet, wasn't quite prepped for altitude of Quito. I suppose few are if they come from sea level. May want to acquire a tank of O2 before arriving

I stayed at the Audiencia for two nights after my trip to the Galapagos. After being unable to sleep for 7 nights straight on a yatch in a small cabin, the queen size clean bed at the Audiencia was a big welcome. I think I had my first real deep sleep there after two weeks in the Galapagos. The front... More

This mid-range hotel is just 2 blocks from La Ronda and within easy walking distance to Plaza Grande. The staff speaks English and are very willing to assist. The rooms and lobby could be spruced up, but the bathrooms have been remodeled. Good value.

Stayed for three nights before joining a tour group and it was a good choice. It is welcoming, clean and in a great position in the old town of Quito. We were able to walk everywhere from the hotel and the dining room has a great view too.

Great location, helpful staff, convenient to walking the old town. Lots of hot water, clean room, more than adequate breakfast, free wi-fi. Our room had a nice view overlooking the plaza. If you open the window, fresh air is nice, but there is sometimes street noise. It didn't bother me, but if you are a light sleeper, maybe a room... More
