I have nothing but good things to say about El Crater. The hotel was quiet, and the views were spectacular. I couldn't ask for more from a hotel in Ecuador. The staff was attentive to our every need, and I really enjoyed watching the clouds roll in every day. The only problem that I encountered was with electricity. My very costly laptop is made of aluminum, and I could actually feel the current surging through the laptop. If you're going to leave your computer plugged in here, you will most definitely want to plug it into a surge protector first. I lost one laptop to that here in South America.

The rooms were super comfortable and cosy. The restaurant had great views, great food and great staff. The Spa is the best I’ve visited in Ecuador. Santiago and Carolina were both excellent masseuses!

After calling and consulting if the restaurant was opened in the afternoon we got rejected once there. Service was "closed" and were only offering drinks. Assuming we had already checked if the restaurant was opened and working we could not even get a justification of what had happened. In general a lack of communitaion between the manager and workes leading to a non functional restaurant.

If you are in Quito, you should stay at least one night at the El Crater Hotel and Restaurant. The service and hospitality are wonderful. The suites are very modern with views on each side of the room of the inside of a crater and the city views of Quito. The king size bed was very comfortable with lovely bed linens and comforters. The location is very close to Quito so it’s an easy drive to get there. The restaurant food was very well prepared. And there are llamas there! It’s a special place.
