This hotel is only a couple of blocks from Plaza Foch and the express bus to Old Town. The rooms vary from somewhat cramped to spacious. The staff are reasonably helpful. The breakfasts are okay but repetitive.

We stayed here 6 nights. The location is great: a rather quiet street, close to the center of Mariscal Sucre. The building is an old colonial place, which might have a lot of atmosphere. The rooms are well equipped with good beds and bathroom, but somehow there is no atmosphere in this hostal. The staff is adequate, but not particularly... More

We had such a short stay here it's not easy to give much advice. The staff was friendly, the room was clean but VERY small with 3 people in it and 3 beds - the door to the bathroom couldn't open all the way because of the way the sink was built. It would also be nice if hotels would... More

The hotel was cozy and comfortable for the price we paid, but there were no elevators, so with the thinning air of The Andes, it was hard to go upstairs without losing my breath. The hotel is located near a turistic zone with lots of restaurants and bars, so we enjoyed that. We were in a group of fisteen people,... More

The hotels is in a very good location, close to the entertainment district and Plaza Foch with all the great restaurants and bars. The hotel is very clean and beds were very comfortable. The rooms could be bigger but the bathroom was large and the shower was great. The decor is a bit creepy with lots of saint statues -... More

I stayed at this hotel with a group so I am unsure of the rate paid. The hotel was very nice even though our room was a little cramped. I am surprised to read that the hotel was built in the late 90s as you could hear people walking above you and conversations throughout the building. The security was very... More

This hotel was useful in making a number of transition stops in a tour through Ecuador. I stayed at the hotel four different nights during my two weeks in Ecuador and found it a good place to use. With a new airport it is now an hour plus drive from the hotel when there is traffic which is almost always,.... More

We stayed here on 3 occasions during may 2012 and found it to be a great little budget hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast in a nice courtyard. The rooms we were allocated were a bit hit or miss. On the first visit we had a suite which was very large and more than adequate for our stay.... More

The hotel is one of those hidden places, located very close to the Mariscal and Plaza Foch, Wi Fi works very well and Internet speed is very good, Staff was very friendly, breakfast was a lot better than I expected, with three different types of bread, fresh natural juice, home brewed coffee. If you want a nice place to stay,... More
