Had a lovely 3 nights stay here. Staff are so friendly and welcoming, they will do anything to help you. Clean and cozy, has a really quaint, family-run feel to it. Rooms are comfortable and clean, not luxury but then again it never claims to be. Breakfast is pretty basic but is nice all the same. Lovely garden with an... More

Very many thanks for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us. We really appreciate your comments. I do apologise for the disturbance in the night , unfortunately, fellow guests, who are either arriving late at night or leaving early, do not always take into consideration that other guests may well be trying to sleep.

We spent single nights here 4 times while we came and went. For that reason we wanted and needed internet.They advertize internet and wifi. Wifi was not working most of the time and the internet only half of the time. Very disappointing. It is most likely the carrier but I would think there must be better options in Quito. We... More

We spent 4 nights (1 night per visit) at this small guesthouse in 3 different rooms (only 11 rooms total). The rooms were all clean and quiet. The main guest room has a fireplace and is a cozy place to have a drink and enjoy fellow travelers. There is also a separate room where the bar is located. Their restaurant... More

We had a small, cozy clean room just off the garden, friendly staff (special mention to Gloria who was welcoming and very helpful). Actually we found all staff to be friendly and helpful. Common room areas were nice and I appreciated the computer that was available in the bar for me to be able to check my emails. We arranged... More

We stayed at the Hostal de La Rabida for two nights while exploring Quito. The 24 hour check-in was appreciated given our late arrival at Quito airport and the 45 minute cab ride into the city from the air terminal. Our room was modestly appointed but very clean, with comfortable twin beds and a nice hot shower in the private... More

Gloria is the star attraction of this place. She is so helpful and knows everything you need to know as a newcomer to Quito. Brownie the bunny is the second star. The fire in the common room was great at night. 24 hour reception was very helpful. Otherwise I found the rooms and meals to be not of the standard... More

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us at La Rabida. I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our rooms and restaurant meals. Certainly our rooms are not large, and there is really nothing we can do about that as we are limited by the dimensions of the hundred-year old... More

We were at the La Rabida three different times as we traveled in and out of Quito to the Galapagos and the rainforest. They could not have been more accomodating about storing our luggage, locking up our "valables" and doing laundry as we came and went. The convenience of having breakfast there (or dinner) was great. The staff was helpful,... More

We stayed here on our first night in Quito and didn't know our way around town and felt it was a good location. The rooms were very nice and Gloria was amazing to work with; extremely friendly and knowledgeable and talkative. she knew the city like the back of her hand and told us where to have a fabulous meal...

A lovely little hotel with a lot of friendly service. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, from recommendations to holding our bags after we checked out while we went about our business. Nice breakfast and dinner, too. Would definitely recommend.
