“Fantastic hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Really welcoming. Amazing rooms. Good food. A real gem! Ideally situated in the old town. Our room was on 2 floors - this was very different for us, but a real treat as we had plenty of space.
Really worth a visit.

This is a great hotel in the absolute heart of old town which was safe and convenient for everything we wanted to see and do while in Quito. The staff were extremely helpful and accomodating, always got us taxis to where we were going (and even once when we called from a restaurant sent one to pick us up as well) and negotiated a day trip to the Otavalo market for us with a local who spoke great English and was able to answer all of our questions and help us enjoy that FABULOUS day (I highly recommend a visit there if you have any interest whatsoever in the local crafts and woolen/alpaca goods). Overall I would give this hotel my highest recommendation.

Great location and friendly staff that really helped. The public rooms are very nice, peaceful, except when the music halls are going, but that stops by 2100. Our room was one of the two story rooms, which are unique, but even better when the bed and the bathroom are on the same floor.
The beds were comfortable, the baths modern and clean and the furnishings interesting and in the right context for a 16th century building.
We found the food to be very good in the restaurant, with pleasant and engaged wait staff.
We had a very early departure on our first stay and the staff brought breakfast to us in the lobby several hours before the "official" breakfast service started. On our second stay they allowed us a "late" checkout to better match our international flight schedules.

Room Tip: Rooms 207-210 are two story rooms, along with several others on the same floor.

This is a great and charming hotel located a block from the Plaza Grande in Old Town Quito. It is a historic building (324 years old). The rooms are quite nice, the public rooms and dining room are very stately and comfortable. This is not a "luxury" hotel by US standards so if you only like the Ritz Carlton then this place is not for you. But if you like a nicely appointed room with a perfect location that just oozes history, then you cannot go wrong with the Hotel Patio Andaluz. The people in the hotel all speak good English and there is a small but decent buffet breakfast included in the price of the room (at least it was included in ours). This hotel is also a perfect base to explore all of Old Town Quito as it is located on one of the main streets in the Old Town.

While perfectly located in the midst of historic downtown, this boutique hotel provides tranquility and quiet amidst a beautifully decorated property. Rooms are spacious, with high ceilings and soothing color schemes. Windows face into the large internal atrium which allow for light but avoid noise from the street. Staff is courteous and helpful. Check to see if your rate includes the breakfast buffet - if not, you may want to go elsewhere as the $20 fee is a bit steep for primarily cold food (even though there is a large spread of fruit).

Room Tip: There are two sections, front and back - ask for a room in the front part.

This is a great hotel, located just two blocks from the main square in the old quarter of Quito. You are a five minute walk from various cathedrals, museums, and other interesting sights.

The facilities are great, the staff is helpful. Most speak at least some English. The facilities are immaculately clean and comfortable. We spent several days here before departing for Galapagos Islands and one day on the return. The location is a bit far (1.5 hr drive) from the new airport, but that would apply to all of Quito. During one day, they had some water pressure problems, but hey, this isn't downtown London or NYC, this is Quito!

Some of the rooms have a novel set-up. Our rooms were loft rooms, with a second large bed (for our son) and bathroom on the second floor. To use the bathroom, you climb a spiral staircase from the main bedroom. It was no problem for us, but if you have mobility problems, you might want to ask for a room where the bed and bathroom are on the same level.

The decoration was simple but very attractive. All wood floors that were shiny and clean, so much better than dusty wall-to-wall carpets. The restaurant was good.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues, ask for a room where the bathroom and bed is on the same level.

Staying here was a very cool and unique experience. Hotel Patio Andaluz is different. You'll notice it from the time you arrive until the day you leave. This historic property has been beautifully maintained and you'd never guess how old it is. (Over 400 years!!)

The staff (dressed in traditional garb) couldn't be nicer. The bellboys, receptionists, waitstaff, and maids are all SUPER friendly and their uniforms transport you to a colonial time.

One thing to keep in mind is that the rooms vary greatly. We were first assigned to a small room in the back that had no A/C and the only window faced back into the hotel. We asked if there were any other rooms available and they happily changed us to a 2-story loft in the front with a huge window and A/C.

Overall I'd definitely recommend staying here for a unique experience in a classic building.
