This hotel is located in a quiet area of Quito. It is not really near too much, except for the Casa de Cultura and a park. It is a good long walk to either the Mariscal or the Centre of the city. If I were to go to Quito again, I would choose a hotel near the centre, where there... More

I really enjoyed my five night stay at Hotel Cartuja. As a single female I felt really safe. the gate and front door are locked at all times and the staff have to open them to let guests in. It is located walking distance from Plaza Foch without being impacted by any noise. Close also to the area around park... More

Hotel La Cartuja is ideal for couples and families. The rooms are clean and well set out. You can relax in the private garden. Staff are always on hand to help you solve your travel problems. Situated close to the old and new parts of the city, this can be just the place you need for your holiday.

This is a nice little hotel. What stood out the most for us was the staff working at the reception. They are very friendly and helpful. The lady at reception even went out of her way to help with my delayed bag, which still hadn't turned up at 10pm, and I had to leave for a Galapagos tour at 6... More

As we stayed there either side of a trip to the Galapagos this hostel/hostel was great. Rooms a little cold but beds were comfortable and snug. Bathrooms a little small but everything very clean. There is a central courtyard which is lovely. The internet isn't that strong but there is a PC you can use. Security is great and we... More

Hotel staff very accommodating. Storage room available to store luggage if going on an extended tour. Room was clean Located close to main street so walking to sights was easy attainable. Taxis right the front door. Gate was always locked so felt security was not an issue.

A lovely stay with family of friends. The kind hosts were helpful and accommodating to the needs of our large group (11). The hotel looks and feels like a large home. The rooms are interesting and clean. This was the favourite spot of all the hotels we were in on our 16 day Galapagos trip.

Rooms are clean and fine for the standard (we rate it as a 3 stars hotel). More important, the staff are very friendly and helpfull. They have... More
