Outstanding position and awesome service from the staff. Nothing is to difficult to help you with and they really do care about your welfare. Lovely, spacious rooms that are very quiet. Do yourself a favor and book here. Michael and Julie Australia

We spent 5 nights at Hostal La Rabida over the past 3 weeks on our stopovers in Quito. The staff were fantastic and the property was very quaint and old world. Great location for evenings with proximity to Foch Square without the noise. Great beds and washrooms and even though some of the rooms are smaller that is part of... More

We stayed here before & after our trip to the Amazon. The staff are so friendly & helpful, providing great suggestions for what to do & where to eat, arranging taxis & in general just doing whatever they could to make your stay better. We had a triple room which was a bit of a tight fit but was otherwise... More

Beautiful victorian style hotel and exceptional service. We had a rental car and they provided free and secured parking. Some rooms are simpler than others, but you can enjoy living room with fireplace. Chose to have breakfast at nearby cafe instead.

You will find it difficult to do better than this place for service, location, and comfort. I would highly recommend La Rabida and will stay here again and again. Just wonderful. They went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Hostal de La Rabida was chosen by our travel agent and we are so glad this caring hotel was our hotel. Not only was the hotel very comfortable, they really showed why they are a special friend to guests when we encountered a health issue after checking out of the hotel. They provided services and comfort like we were family.... More

This is a small hotel in a nice district where you feel so at home. The owners a husband and wife team are just the best. That goes for the entire staff. They did so many nice services for us: storing luggage, arranging a super early continental breakfast, booking taxis and providing great suggestions and travel advice.

A wonderful hostal with a great location. Service was excellent. Public area was very friendly and low key. In fact they had a very welcoming fire our evening there which was effective against the 65° outdoor temps. All the staff were superior but Gloria at the desk was exceptional. She not only spoke good English but offered excellent advice and... More

We stayed here for three nights on a recent trip to Ecuador. Hotel is lovely and quiet in general. The people were nice and very helpful, especially Gloria. Breakfast was very good, you can eat other meals there if you choose. The only downside was our room(#2). It is right on the street and can be quite noisy at night,... More

We only stayed one night at the Hostal de la Rabida in March 2015, as we were returning to the US the following day. But we wished we had chosen to stay there earlier in our travels through Ecuador as well. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the location is fantastic, as it's situated in the heart of La...
