This property is stunning and the rooftop views are maybe the best in the city! You also are in the historical area so it's perfectly situated and better than other locations in the city I've stayed. The rooms are very clean and well equipped. The staff was really lovely and

We heard about this hotel from a friend who is a local. It was in the perfect location from all the cities' hot spots. Perfect honeymoon. Would do it all over again with Mama Cuchara, except next time we will stay longer. Our room was decorated contemporary and was spotless

We booked this hotel based on the excellent reviews and were so disappointed with this hotel, one of worst we've ever stayed at anywhere in the world at any price point. When you arrive you are excited and expect high standards. Unfortunately none of the basic requirements of a

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We sincerely appreciate your comments and will use them to implement immediate corrective actions in order to improve service to our guests. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight that our property is a patrimonial Spanish-colonial style house located in the historical center of Quito, and as so is protected under the UNESCO World Heritage program. Thus, there are some structural changes prohibited that as a company who values art and history we must respect. For example, the location of the restaurant in the central plaza of the house, which is an architectural feature of the Spanish-colonial style. However, your comments have brought to our attention the need to review our operational scheduling in order to avoid any disturbances with noise from the restaurant, as well as from the rooftop bar. Reequipping an 18th century house for the 20th century is the challenge we undertook in order to share the beautiful property with the world. In order to adjust a room's temperature we offer portable heating and/or cooling equipment. These alternatives also align with our environmental commitment to lower CO2 emissions. It would be useful to know if you were given this alternative. The breakfast service you describe is completely unacceptable, we offer our profuse apologies and it pains us to know the moment for recovery has long past. In light of your comments we have already begun taking a series of measures to ensure this does not happen again. Thank you again for your time and for allowing us to receive your valuable comments. Best regards, Carmen Torres Hotel Mama Cuchara
