What a charming boutique hotel! Our trip was postponed from May 2020 to April 2021 so this was our first trip outside of the USA. We stayed here for two nights before heading to the Galapagos. The tourist industry been hit hard here. We were the only couple in the hotel. We had been upgraded to a large, beautiful room (#203). The hotel and rooms were immaculate. The bed was comfy and lots of wonderful pillows. The bathroom products smelled delicious. The coffee provided in the room was great. We could have sat and enjoyed it all morning but we had lots to see. (I will post our day with a guide on the forum). There is a great rooftop viewing area as well as a bar and small dining area. The main restaurant is in the center of the hotel. Food is awesome. Service....impeccable everywhere. Front desk, restaurant and security. Special shout out to Alex, Andrea and Anna who saw to our every need. As far as COVID protocols...hand sanitizer upon entering as well as throughout the hotel. I never saw any staff without a mask. There were also limitations on outsiders dining in the restaurant, not that there were ever a lot of people around.

I am from New York and was traveling alone in Ecuador for 2 weeks. I had the pleasure of staying at Mama Cuchara for 4 nights and it was magnificent. The service was truly world class, the food is excellent (the menu is all Ecuadorian dishes and an accompanying map shows the origin of each dish), the rooms are luxurious and wifi works well throughout the hotel. The highlight of my stay was the amazing and kind service of the staff, particularly Alex, Anna and Dino. As a seasoned traveler who has visited 48 countries I can vouch for the outstanding experience at Mama Cuchara. Also the rooftop bar has a glorious view of Quito, which you can enjoy while sipping a canelazo prepared by Dino.

I stayed here for 2 nights on my way to the Galapagos in December 2020. The room was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The eating area was lovely and the bar with its viewing platform of the City were both beautiful and the food was great, too. It being 2020 and all, I had several hoops to jump through on COVID reporting and David at the front desk helped by receiving and printing emails, including COVID test results. I had to leave very early in the morning and they prepared a to go breakfast for me. I would happily stay there again.

I wondered if perhaps they had mistaken us for someone else..they were so happy to see us. But no, it didn't end at reception. At meals, staff would give impromptu musical performances of such sincerity and authenticity that we felt we had been part of an ancient ceremony. We found ourselves preferring to hang out in the hotel rather than around the town, which was also charming. When we came back to the hotel after a week in other parts of Ecuador it was "welcome home" all over again. They had upgraded our room and on the following morning when we had to leave before dawn they opened the restaurant with full service an hour early to accommodate us. The food was a culinary experience in itself, creative and healthy presentations of regional authentic traditions. The five cheese quinoa was to die for. We plan to go back just for the magic of the place even though we don't usually visit the same place twice.

Stayed 2 nights with my family. Rooms we initially received were dark with no external windows. Manager upgraded 2 rooms and we paid upgrade for other room. Rooms were pleasant however the hotel in right on the edge of the old town and a 15 minute walk from the main squares or decent restaurants. Management and staff of hotel were exceptional and made up for the fact that the hotel had no atmosphere in the dining area or bar. Was not really the kind of place you want to spend time other than to sleep. Congratulations to the staff of your exceptional job.
