La Cartuja had excellent staff and was a pleasant place to stay while in Quito. Rooms were clean and comfy however the shower sometimes took a long time to warm up. Provided basic breakfast but was still tasty. Excellent spot to stay before and after Galápagos Islands trip with intrepid.

Stayed here as it was included in the Galapagos trip I was taking. The staff are friendly and helpful. Even when we asked directions to a laundromat and somewhere to eat! This hotel is the old English embassy and it was very nice. The Courtyard is a nice touch and a good spot for a cuppa. If you are in... More

We were mistakenly double booked at another hotel but they transfered us here and we are so glad they did. The room was nice but the courtyard really made it a great place to stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating!

Stayed at this quite nice hotel, close to new town, when going to (and arriving from) my Galapagos trip. I didn't really chose it, as it was booked by Intrepid Travel, who I did the Galapagos tour with. It has clean rooms and the personel is quite helpful. Also it is very close to restaurants and shopping areas. And it... More

Lovely, cosy little hotel in north Quito. Located in a quiet residential/embassy area, it's a quick walk to a number of restaurants and other amenities. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast is adequate, if a bit sparse. The rooms are also quite basic, but comfortable and safe.

This hotel has only 11 rooms, and is reputedly the site of the former British Embassy. Each of the four of us traveling together had a room facing the garden courtyard. Rooms are not large but clean and adequate with clean bathrooms. The beds are firm; there is no heat or A/C, but the temperate climate doesn't require them. Wi-Fi... More

This hotel is located in a quiet area of Quito. It is not really near too much, except for the Casa de Cultura and a park. It is a good long walk to either the Mariscal or the Centre of the city. If I were to go to Quito again, I would choose a hotel near the centre, where there... More

I really enjoyed my five night stay at Hotel Cartuja. As a single female I felt really safe. the gate and front door are locked at all times and the staff have to open them to let guests in. It is located walking distance from Plaza Foch without being impacted by any noise. Close also to the area around park... More

Hotel La Cartuja is ideal for couples and families. The rooms are clean and well set out. You can relax in the private garden. Staff are always on hand to help you solve your travel problems. Situated close to the old and new parts of the city, this can be just the place you need for your holiday.

This is a nice little hotel. What stood out the most for us was the staff working at the reception. They are very friendly and helpful. The lady at reception even went out of her way to help with my delayed bag, which still hadn't turned up at 10pm, and I had to leave for a Galapagos tour at 6... More
