My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Villa Nancy as a base for our Ecuador trip. We stayed all or part of 7 nights in 3 different segments of our 17 day Ecuador trip, July 2013. This was a great place to base our in country travel from.
The staff was exceptionally helpful and provided vital service when we were there and away. Everything from wake up calls, information and advice, arranging transportation, messages and maps while we were there but also hotel safe for our valuables and secure storage for surplus baggage and equipment when we were in other parts of the country. When traveling to the Amazon rainforest (Napo Wildlife Center) and Galapagos yacht tour space is a premium so being able to pack specifically for the next adventure and leave everything else behind was a huge relief and appreciated service.
Breakfast was included as was an excellent wet sauna, the kind you ladle water on hot rocks, much better than dry sauna's. Showers worked on every occasion but one and between the two of us the shower was often used 3 or more times a day. Fridge concession was well maintained and reasonably priced, a key feature as it turned out as we were in and out at all times due to travel times.
The two restaurants across the street were also good. We ended up eating a couple times each at Hunters and Barlovento as we generally were spent by the time we got back to base. We had good food and fun with the staff when we ate at these places. The staff at Barlovento's stayed open for a hour past closing for us and even gave us presents the last time we ate there. Having these two eateries so close added to the neighborhood feeling.
The one drawback we did experience was it is not a well known location for taxi's returning. WE generally walked home as it is a good location but the few times we did cab it back we ended up identifying Hotel Quito as the destination then pointed to Muros street as we entered the round about. It worked, but I would recommend bringing an address card next time.
