Having experienced quite a few hotels around Ecuador, I can honestly say El Quijote was fantastic! I loved it! Staff are lovely, location is perfect, rooms are cleaned. I went there as part of a wedding and all of us (30 people) were thrilled!

I felt like I needed to read up on Don Quijote and Sancho Panza, there are statues and paintings of them all over the place. The hotel is very spacious, there is a nice room upstairs which is a bit of a social area, with paintings of Don Quijote on his horse again. The rooms have windows which open onto... More

At the moment of the check-in, there was a problem with the reservation, that left my group of (20) classmates waiting for the main hall for around 45 minutes, until they could send us to our rooms. My double room had a window to the corridor, so I could hear what was happening at the outside. Breakfast, very poor, consisting... More

The staff at this hotel are great. Gave us breakfast even though we were almost an hour late. Felt secure in the building with the security measures they have in place. Beautifly restored colonial with modern bathrooms. Noise was never an issue after 9 pm. The ambiance of the old colonial is worth the small distractions.

This little hotel has a good location, is one block away from the Main Plaza (Parque Calderón). Its price isn't bad considering it includes breakfast and the staff is friendly. One of the cons is the fact that it doesn't has parking lot, and the rooms & beds are a bit small. As every other Republican building with central patio... More

For $32, which "includes" 22% tax & continental breakfast, this is a good option. Nice, clean, small hotel in Historic Center with good atmosphere & 3 patios. However, like all such "concrete block" structures, you need to be a sound sleeper since noise permeates the entire place & you hear absolutely all of it. Fortunately things turn quiet around 11P...
