Stayed at the Hotel Plaza Grande in Quito for a week. Absolutely fantastic! You will not be disappointed with the Hotel, service, and the courteous staff. They made our stay extremely special from beginning to end. The welcome was so warm and till the last day they were great! Stay there for an incredible experience!

The Plaza Grande is right on the main old plaza in Quito. The rooms are beautiful and the beds are bliss. There are welcome sweets and good Malbec waiting for you. You can walk to many of the major sites in addition to restaurants and shops. Cabs in Quito are very inexpensive as well. There is no breakfast included. This... More

Fabulous food! Had the quinoa soup, sea bass, and a delightful sorbet served over dry ice making it look like an erupting volcano ! Service was impeccable and we were a group of 14. Others had a dish common in Ecudaor. Of a goat stew which they said was good and tasted like lamb to some, beef to others. The... More

The hotel is located on the main square in the Old Town of Quito. There was a platter of snacks and a bottle of wine to welcome us when we entered our room. The room itself was large and had a modern bathroom. Lighting in the bedroom and bath was superb. Responsiveness was fantastic - when I had wifi or... More

This hotel is located right in the center of the old town of Quito. The rooms are very nicely decorated and spacious (all suites). An ideal hotel for staying a couple of days. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is good. Taking into consideration that most hotels in Ecuador are "overpriced" the value of this hotel is... More

Great staff, great rooms, great location (right next to main square, better than new town), worth every penny. Room was quiet, clean and they even had a bottle of wine waiting for us. Hotel airport transfer service was a decent price and a great option for the long drive from airport to city center. We loved our stay and would... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for one (too brief) night in January. We were tired and worn out from a long day of travel and stayed here one night, arriving at midnight. They had rose petals scattered around our room, a bottle of wine and fruit plate and chocolate waiting for us. The huge tub... More

After a wonderful, sometimes arduous and always adventurous week scaling the Andean heights and Golapagan depths of Ecuador it was heavenly to fall into the arms of the Plaza Grande's staff, yummy beds and food for three nights. I struggled with the pricing. I've stayed at some pretty great places for less money but decided that this level of service/property... More
