This is a pleasant, small hotel on a perfect location in a quit neighbourhood and only a couple of dollars ride from the old town and the entertainment area. Service is friendly, internet is good. We bad room6 in the old building, which is a nice spacious room, but we found it a little bit chilly, because of te high... More

We had a great time here at this quaint and beautiful property. It was in a lovely area of Quito within walking distance or a short taxi drive to the Old Town and the Museum. The staff people were lovely to us--very kind and helpful with great suggestions of things to do and see. We had a late flight out,... More

I lead summer trips for high school students interested in learning about the culture of South American countries and improving their Spanish skills. Needless to say, traveling with a group can be challenging, and traveling with teenagers can add other layers of complexity to touring a foreign country. After staying at La Cartuja for a number of days during summer... More

We were traveling to Ecuador and stayed several times at La Cartuja during our trip. We stayed in 3 different rooms, and all were really nice, clean and calm. A real gem, very calm in the noisy city. Breakfast is good, with a different mix of fresh fruit every day. We will stay there again!

Location is perfect, close to everything -- museum, park, artesan market, fastfood (KFC, McDonald's), public transportation. Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, used different rooms -- both very clean and spacious. English speaking staff :)

I only stayed here two nights. But I loved it. Very clean rooms. The breakfasts each morning were delicious! Such friendly staff that went out of their way to ensure our group had what we needed. Great courtyard, free wifi, and very convenient location within walking distance to restaurants.

This hotel helped our group (12) feel the real flavor of Ecuador. The center court yard was wonderful for gathering. The WiFi was great for the group to share their pictures with family back home. The rooms were very clean and the extra blanket was greatly appreciated. The breakfast was excellent with wonderful fresh fruit and fresh juice, a different... More

I spent a total of six nights at La Cartuja this summer, once by myself, once with a friend, some with a group of teenagers in my care, and once with my fiancée (long story). I was thoroughly impressed with their service. They were always friendly and went beyond the call of duty to help whenever they could. For example,... More

La Cartuja staff were friendly and helpful, even having a snack for us when we arrived at 1 AM from a full day of travel. The hotel has a lovely court yard for relaxing. Breakfast is delicious. The eating area was perfect for playing cards with friends in the evening. While near a busy intersection, the hotel was amazingly quiet... More

Very nice small hotel located in a quiet street. The rooms are well sized, very clean and comfortable. The service staff were very friendly and helpful. They also spoke English. The location is also very convenient - centrally located close to the new town but only a 20 min walk from the old town. The only small complaint i have... More
