We enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The central courtyard was very airy and comfortable place to sit. We had room in the front, so it was a bit noisy with early morning deliveries. I took a taxi from the airport, very late at night, and there was somebody waiting for me to let me in!

The hotel is is in the middle of the historic center which is quite convenient as you can walk to main old city attractions and monuments . Do not expect any luxury as the rooms are basic with a very old TV that is useless. People who serve breakfast are not the most friendly in the world and we noticed... More

Hotel had great security. Lobby (interior courtyard) was beautiful. Staff was very helpful. Rooms were nice - all facing the interior courtyard but could be a bit noisy depending on your location. Our room was near the front desk so we heard phones ringing, people talking, and security door buzzing. Breakfast included buffet style scrambled eggs, rolls, coffee, tea, and... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights on our recent trip to Ecuador. We had arranged with the hotel to have a taxi pick us up at the airport and our driver was waiting and the price was as agreed upon. The hotel was nice with a lovely courtyard sitting area but be aware that this is not... More

The Hotel is amazingly well located in the old town of Quito, you can walk to a ton of attractions and landmarks from the hotel, which is always a plus. You also have a grocery next door. The indoor courtyard is really beautiful, with tons of flowers. Since the Wi-Fi was not working in the room, the courtyard was a... More

If your looking for a quiet location located in the colonial town of Quito the Hotel San Francisco will serve you well. The staff are friendly and the breakfast offered was both varied. The room itself was beautiful and clean. The people are wonderful, very attentive to your every need. The food in the restaurant very good price and well... More

Recently stayed here but not happy with room for what it cost. Had to run around in the shower to get wet! A basic, small room with worn bedding and towels. Nice sitting area in inner courtyard but noisy at night with phone ringing and people coming in. Found a place around the corner for half the price and a... More

Excellent location for exploring the historic centre, especially as the building itself is very old and beautiful with a stunning geranium-filled courtyard and lots of natural light. Staff were friendly and spoke good English which was very helpful to us. They patiently offered advice and booked taxis where necessary. Breakfast was very basic and fairly unexciting: dry bread rolls and... More
