The Folklore is situated on Madrid and Ponteverdra in the La Floresta district of Quito. The hotel is 10 minutes walk to the Mariscal and a 45 minutes walk to the historical old town. The rooms are clean and bright and the owner Bernardo is a friendly and welcome host. They serve a buffet breakfast in the cafeteria next to... More

The neighborhood is good, lots of shops and restaurants close by. The breakfast selections at the hotel are tasty. The rabbit is very cute. The husband and wife co-owners seemed friendly and helpful until cash disappeared from a locked closet in my room. They ignored my reporting of the problem and were not the least concerned. I had to insist... More

I generally don't write anything but good reviews about places I have stayed, thinking everyone is honestly doing their best, but feel I need to make an exception here. I was one of the ten members of the hiking group mentioned in an earlier review, some of whom knew they had been robbed while staying there. (I had my suspicions... More

Ten of us just spent 10 nights at this hotel. We are members of a California hiking group & are traveling in Ecuador & Peru for 3 weeks. We were the sole occupants at the Folklore, & on our last day there, several of us discovered that we were robbed of cash from our rooms. The hotel provided lock boxes,... More

the folklore is situated on a quiet street about a 15minute walk from the active centre of plaza foch and about a 1 hour walk from the old city. Rooms are a good size with large bath and shower with hot water. The included breakfast is very good. The only negative is the price. Other hostals/hotels in the area are... More

This is a homely gem in a relatively quiet area - La Floretta. Rooms are clean airey and very comfortable. Our double superior was $50 for two people including breakfast and it was a good sizeroom. Bernado is very helpful in providing advice, maps and laptops! and all you could ask for including a reasonably priced airport transfer ($30). The... More

We booked in here last minute in high season as all the cheaper places were booked out. We paid $40 a night here for a private room with bathroom. We moved room on the third day because the hot water went from boiling hot to freezing cold over and over again which sucks when you are sick!! The new room... More

Me and my family stayed at the Folklore for three nights total, two at the beginning of our stay in Ecuador, and one before we flew home. And I must say, it exceeded any expectation I had. The staff was amazing and helpful far beyond the call of duty. When we went to Banos for two days they held on... More

My experience at the Folklore was that I felt like family more than as only a guest. The hotel is situated in a quiet neighborhood called La Floresta. The Folklore is run by Bernardo and his wife Yadira. They were always available to answer any questions and were very helpful when it came to tours or places to see in... More
