“Good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We stayed in the Amazonas Inn four nights. The service is good and the staff is friendly. It was an OK option between day trips in Quito and reading reviews it seems it has been refurbished. We paid 35$ for a double room that was spacious and full of light with two balconies, wooden floors throughout, cable tv, wifi(that works!) and hot shower.

However the rooms in the first floor are quite noisy once the breakfast service begins (7 am) and the matresses in the first floor are extremely hard, we wanted to change rooms but the ones on the second floor have tiny little windows. Also the sliding doors of the bathrooms do not close and the shower was outdated but the water was hot.

The breakfast was included, enough but not plenty. It included toasts, butter and jam plus eggs one day and salad fruit the next one.

The area is very convinient, full of restaurants/bars(Plaza Foch) and travel agencies. Although during the night it changes (hikers) but there is police all around. It seems it is changing in the last couple of years.

Overall this hotel was OK. It was a cheap option but two nights I couldn't sleep properly.

Room Tip: First floor: spacious rooms, beautiful balconies, noisy after 7am, hard matresses Second floor: tin...

I can't say enough about how great this hostal was. Our first encounter was with the new owner's son who was so friendly and cordial and showed us rooms for a future stay. When we arrived they went out of their way to get us comfortably settled. The rooms have been updated with new drapes, comforter covers, and upholstery and the showers are HOT. The rooms and hall are spotlessly clean and a nice breakfast is served every morning. It was the best value of any hotel I stayed in this trip. It is only two short blocks from some excellent restaurants and night life.

Dear Gorge t,

I am sorry to read this bad review. We are the new owners of the Hostal.
The former administration was neglectful in the aspect of the cleanliness and the quality of service. We have changed everything inside the place. We have hot water, WiFi, Cable in every room.
In behalf of all the staff, I apology for the bad impression you got from our hostal.

The new ownership neglects responding to requests for reservation through their web site and emails. We obtained reservations through a third party in Quito but upon arriving found that they had discontinued cable TV and internet service. (We don´t go out much in the evening and want to be able to watch TV as well as read.) The cafe is closed for remodeling.

At $16 a night for a room with everything one could need, including a bathtub, it was a fantastic deal. No windows in the room with tub, but that kept it quiet at night (rare for Latin American countries). Desk clerk 24 hours, so safety no problem. They have a safe behind desk for valuables, which I used. My room was small, but who wants to spend time in the room while on vacation. Breakfast not included but a cafe is on first floor of building. I paid $2 for breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful, but nobody could help me pull up my emails on the in-house computer. No matter; plenty of internet cafes in the same block for $1 an hour. I stayed 4 nights and made day trips to two parks, Pululahua, Mitad del Mundo, and Yanacocha. I have a detailed trip report (birding) on another website. If you want the link, contact me.

The staff were fantastic and the service was good. However, our room was similar to a prison cell with a window the size of a shoe box (this is not an exaggeration). It was very noisy from the street below. The room was not clean, and had extensive visible stains on the carpet and in the bathroom. There was a very active drug scene on the street just outside the hotel, and even the staff said we should not go outside at night.

We paid only $26 for the room, but I would gladly pay twice that for a decent place to sleep.

My wife and I have been visiting Quito for many years and are so glad we discovered the Hostel Amazones Inn -- we've stayed there for the past five years. Sra. Jeannette and her friendly and helpful staff make all feel right at home. A great value and the location is convenient to everything you want to visit. -- Dick & Rusty George, Macon, Ga. USA
