Excellent service, very clean, and good food. The staff went out of their way to make sure I had a hot breakfast even though it was past the usual breakfast hour. The airport service was efficient and much appreciated.

They are chaining their name to Tourist Inn San Carlos. Advantages of being near airport only 10 minutes away. But we stayed in the main house and noise from staff in reception area and eating area down below kept going until at least 12:30. Only a few other guests so not sure where the noise was coming from. Room was... More

We stayed at Hosteria San Carlos Tababela for several nights before returning to Canada after a seven week stay in Ecuador. We wanted a restful spot in a small town near the airport. And it was perfect. The grounds and accommodation were immaculate, The out buildings and main lodge were inviting and charming. The staff was friendly and competent. We... More

Like most people, I stayed here one night when I needed to get to the airport early the next day. I thought it was a fantastic value and very convenient to the airport. I had the dinner ($7) and it was delicious. I highly recommend this hacienda-style property, I thought it was fun. I wish it had been a little... More

I stayed hear like most folks for a short time awaiting our next flight. And did not want to ride 30-40 minutes into town. I was picked up at the airport with a hour and a half delay. The room was clean and the basics. The grounds surrounding the rooms are inviting with a pool and small garden. On our... More

We've been coming to Ecuador every winter for the past 10 years. In the past, with the old airport, we'd stay in Quito a few days either on our way in or out of the country. Since the new airport ~ we've tried to avoid the $50 round-trip taxi and settled on "quick-one-nighters" before heading to/from Cuenca when traveling to/from... More

The other reviews were good but we had a miserable stay. We were not met at the airport as arranged. Eventually we gave up on the shuttle and took a taxi. As we arrived there was another car there with the driver waiting at the door. He suggested our driver not leave as he had been waiting a long time... More

The rooms in this hotel are clean and welcoming and the food is wonderful. The owners and staff at the hotel are very friendly and accommodating and the on site pool is very well maintained. For people looking for activities, there is also a large field with a number of soccer pitches. The hostel is only 10 minutes from the... More
