I found la casa amarilla online and decided to book after reading other good reviews. We wanted a nice place, more of a boutique style, and not too pricey. I've now stayed twice and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Quito.
Jenny is a star. She treats each guest like family and wants more than anything for everyone to feel at home. The house is decorated with funky art and has a beautiful garden. We had a lot of problems with our flight being cancelled and Jenny didn't mind running us back and forth to the airport, even in the middle of the night. If you are traveling alone, in a group, or as a couple, this is a great find that I highly recommend.
