Was going to stay 4 nights for business. Told them I was going to arrive between 12 midnight and 1 AM. I had texted them my arrival time and asked if someone would be working. She assured me they had some one working.at all times. I was flying from Miami and left around 7 pm, with no notice from my hotel. Arrived in Quito and caught a cab to the hotel. Rang the bell and guess what no answer or note on the door The cab driver even call the hotel, no answer. I keep ringing the bell for 20 minutes, no answer! Luckily my cab drive stayed with me this entire time and then he took me to the HILTON. I registered and went to my room and logged into WIFI, then checked my emails and I found an email from the Filatelia saying I should contact them and they would get someone to get me my key. Needless to say I was not happy. They put me at risk and lied about someone being on duty. I have stayed at this place before without incident. I just want to warn tourists about this situation because at 1 AM in the morning any city is not safe. The Filatelia said they were sorry but my life is worth more than a simple sorry. I will NEVER stay here again....

The entire hotel is small but quite nice, the rooms/apartments were spacious enough for us two and everything seemed quite clean. All the staff were really nice and they even allowed us to leave our backpacks after check-out while sightseeing around the city :) The only downside was (as mentioned previously by other travelers) that the temperature of the shower did not get hot, it was just lukewarm. Also, the draining system in the shower did not work properly so water accumulated while showering. The free breakfast (from 7-10am) was pretty good. I also liked the small but cozy lounge area close to the front desk where you can relax. Overall, our stay was quite pleasant for the amount of money spent.

This is an apartment hotel. Since we had five adults – having space is a plus. We reserved a three bedroom/three bathroom penthouse apartment. Hotel Filatelia provides pick-up and drop off service at the airport. Filatelia sent two persons to pick up our party of five. Upon arriving at our destination, the building resembles a mid-century modern high rise (total of six floors). There is a small elevator in the building but it only goes up the sixth floor and then you must up approximately a dozen steps to the penthouse. The penthouse is large but very dark because of the wood paneling décor. There is a living room and dining room area…the dining room overlooks the neighborhood skyline. A small galley kitchen……the window above the sink also overlooks the neighborhood skyline. The kitchen is equipped with dishes, eating utensils, pots and pans but no dishwashing detergent, cloth towels or paper towels. We spent three nights here. The biggest problem was the lack of hot water when showering. Seemed as though it was fine the first night and we had a total of five adults using three bathrooms. Beginning the second day…no hot water all day for showering and the same for the third day (at this point…didn’t matter much since we were flying out soon). Also…low water pressure at times. Hotel is very efficient in arranging pick-up and drop-off from airport.

We booked this place with booking.com but upon arrival we were disappointed.Floor in the room was dusty,bedding had dusty and not very fresh scent to it.There is no tea or coffee facility.Shower just unpleasantly lukewarm on a cold mornings.There was some sound of machine working all the time behind our window.To get water you need to go down for a fill up.Staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely not returning back.

This is the second time I stayed a this hotel. The staff is friendly even when I speak very little Spanish. Daniela was a blessing as she explained things so well, that even I felt comfortable traveling to another city by public transportation. I had hot water for showers and enjoyed the restaurant. My room was clean and comfortable. Very close to the market. The employees really make you feel at home!
