Look no further---this is the best!! The inn is cozy and comfortable with a very gracious and kind staff. My room was lovely and the bed very comfortable. The location is a short walk to Plaza Foch and the party neighborhood yet it is very quiet. The small garden and patio area is serene and Brownie just adds to the... More

Excellent place to stay. Great service & value. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Showers had great water pressure. Beautiful garden to enjoy breakfast. House mascot is a bunny named Brownie. Very comfortable common spaces tastefully decorated. The wood burning fireplace was in use each evening and it can be chilly at night.

Well located, beautiful and charming place, excellent service - people very friendly, simple but good breakfast. We used the Restaurant for a soup at night and it was great. Comfortable room and bathroom with right space. I would certainly return!

Exceedingly comfortable, warm, welcoming B&B. We would return in a heartbeat! Gloria and Carlos were very helpful in figuring out where to go and especially how to get there. They welcomed you "home" when you returned at the end of the day, and often there was a fire burning in the fireplace, making their comfy living room warm and inviting.... More

The Hostal de La Rabia was wonderful. I fell in love with Brownie, the bunny. Gloria made the place very welcoming. She was so helpful with all our needs, couldn't do enough for us. Felt like home. Great place for the price

We started our tour here and it is just the kind of hotel I like to stay in. You feel like you are staying in someone's home so you feel a part of the culture, as opposed to cookie cutter hotels. I won't repeat what others have already said, it's a lovely hotel in a good location. $2-3 dollars to... More

We booked this hotel on Hotels.com for 3 days in January 2015 because it was very highly rated on Tripadvisor. When we phoned upon our arrival in Quito, they had no record of our reservation. However, Gloria, the manager accommodated us with a room. We were expecting to stay in an Ecuadorian mansion, but our room was in a concrete... More

Quaint, cozy hostel with a warm and welcoming staff. Gloria has been there for several years and always welcomes you with open arms. Oh, yes, and breakfast with Brownie, the bunny having his breakfast right on the other side of the window.
