The hotel is on a one-way street and the sign not very obvious - our taxi driver nearly missed it, but it is actually quite conveniently situated for getting to most places. The building is old, with the advantage that it has large rooms, but the stairs can be a drag if you have a lot of luggage. Front desk... More

The Alston Inn was very good. The people at the front desk are pleasant and helping. They regularly clean the rooms and have free wifi. There was no food available a the hotel, but plenty of small restaurants in the area for a good price. The hotel was also a short walk from shopping and bars, which are decent. I... More

I don't know if it's just because I loved Quito so much, but I thought this was a fantastic place to stay. Great location (10 minute trole ride to Old Town, 5 minute walk to Plaza Foch), very clean, hot showers, extremely kind staff, good internet, perfect temperature rooms, etc. Very enjoyable.

No frills, not maintained very well and not very clean. I would have rated just a bit higher if I did not find hair through out the room/bathroom and the spots on the walls. The sheets were clean, the front desk staff very friendly and helpful, and it is a non-smoking hotel (which is why I booked it) but beyond... More

Stayed here our first night in Ecuador. Check in after midnight was smooth.Comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and decent TV, but this is a no frills place. I would stay again. No breakfast, but plenty of places close by.

I had a pretty good experience just recently at the Alston Inn. I chose the hotel because I was already familiar with the area in Quito and had contact with the owner previously. It's very plain compared to most hotels that are higher priced with very few extras. There is wonderful hot water and cable television with plenty of channels... More

I stayed here with a group last week for 1 night. We chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the airport in Quito. Three of us shared a room. Hotel is in need of a serious upgrade, but for one night it was okay. All three of us managed to get a hot shower in the morning. The... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night in between flights, booked through expedia. This hotel looks very plain. I got a room with 2 beds on the main floor. The blanket on one of the bed smelled of body odor. The hot shower lasted for only one person, not two in a row. The front desk however was very... More

For the money, excellent hotel to spend your sleeping hours in. Aside from no heaters in the rooms, the blankets kept me warm at bedtime. The owner and front desk staff speak very good english and are helpful when asked. It is an older hotel without much in line of amenities, however the price offsets those things. I will defintely...
