Last month, my wife, who was in the cafeteria with her handbag, turned around to pack her computer and before she turned around, her bag was gone! We were quite taken aback by the quickness with which the purse had been stolen. The reason why I am rating the hotel badly is due to the following: 1) The staff kept... More

If you only need a place to hang your hat while you enjoy the city, this is a great place. The price is reasonable, good location, the staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and bright. And, they offer free wifi. Really can't ask for much more than that! Would definitely stay here again.

A basic, clean place to stay in the old part of Quito. Honest and friendly staff.

I spent 3 nights in Quito before going on a diving cruise in the Galapagos and this hotel satisfied my needs - inexpensive in a very safe and central location. I don't want to waste more money as the dive cruise already cost me an arm and a leg. I arrived in the middle of the night - as most... More

Very nice hotel on Amazonas in the New Town Quito. I stayed on two different occasions. One of the rooms was at the back the other on the side. Both rooms were bright and cheerful with floor to ceiling windows nicely decorated, secure and quite. Amazonas is a busy street so I imagine the rooms at the front might have... More

we stayed nights at the hothello in Quito; It is a bit above our budget, but the room was okay, comfortable beds, nice bathroom, hot shower; And there was a heater very useful for the cold nights in Quito. Free wifi, good breakfast, additional cost. Very convenient location in Amazonas.

Upon arriving we were not impressed with the exterior of this hotel but our opinion soon changed when I met the staff and saw the rooms. All the rooms are secure, very clean, comfortable and cosy. All staff members are very helpful and always friendly. Although smoking is allowed in the rooms here the cleaners keep them so clean that... More

I have stayed in Hotel Othello a number of times over the past 2 years, both on my own and with friends. As a solo female traveler I always feel safe and well taken care of there. They are good to their guests and the staff are honest and reliable. Recently I was forced to spend a night in Guayaquil... More

Staff were very helpful in making arrangements for my continued travel in Ecuador. The rooms are small, but clean and cozy. The Hotel is located near restaurants and the artesian market which makes souvenier shopping easy. Like many small hotels in Quito, there is no elevator, but staff happily carry your bags up the stairs, and make every effort to... More

I should note that I didn't actually stay at this hotel. I just had breakfast there one morning, wherein we suffered some of the worst service imaginable in a place that claims to sell breakfast. This said, the hotel is on an extremely busy street; I suspect it would be extremely loud at night. It also looked a bit seedy.... More
