Hmmm. A lot of raves for this place, but I just don't get it. The positives: the courtyard is absolutely amazing and the wifi there is good. They'll hold your bag if you arrive early or leave late (as we did). The place was fairly quite at night, considering it's location right in old town. A room with two twin... More

We stayed at this hotel as we wanted to be in the historic district and were there bringing a group of others with us. As we started communicating with the hotel about 6 months ahead of time, we had timely and helpful responses from Sara. This was a big part of our decision to come to this hotel. Once we... More

This is a charming hotel, very well located in the old town with a superb view of Quito by night from the top. The staff were friendly and helpful, they looked after our baggage for a couple of weeks til we were on our return, and we enjoyed the trip to The Mitad del Mundo and Otovalo that they organised....

The location is fabulous - on a limited-access-to-cars street, but right in the colonial section of Quito. Within walking distance of the Plaza Grande and a couple cathedrals. All the rooms are unique and the hotel is beautifully done. Breakfast of scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, and rolls in the basement was filling. I traveled there with students and felt very... More

We stayed here upon aerial in Quito and were thrilled with the location. Walk outside of this hotel and you are in the heart of the Old Town. All of the key sites in the town were within several blocks of this quaint hotel. The room was clean with comfortable beds. It was a little dark due to the lack... More

I stayed in 2 different rooms during my 2 part stay in Quito. There is a lot of variety in the rooms and depending on which rooms there can be lots of street noise, or none at all. I was in room 19, it had 3 beds, very comfortable, no noise other than other guests. I was also in room... More

The hotel was a good introduction to Quito, and to Ecuador, as it was where we stayed our first two nights in Ecuador after landing in Quito. We loved the courtyards and the architecture - the entire building made us feel like we had gone back in time! We had to climb lots of stairs to our room, which was... More

This hotel is a renovated home from the late 1600s and has so much character! The courtyard and patio gardens are beautiful - and when inside, you would never guess you are staying in a city with a population of 2+ million people. That being said, the building is 333 years old. Hence, the insulation isn't the best, and if... More

Undoubtably a very good old town location and a lovely courtyard. It apparently one of the better value of Quito's hotels but we were a little disappointed. In particular don't expect much from the breakfast - it was very basic and the old eggs and supplemental costs for so many items was a bit crazy (see pics attached). Also it... More
