We stayed at Casa Aliso twice during our trip to Ecuador - once before our visit to the Galapagos and once afterwards. I really cannot say enough good things about Casa Aliso, especially its incredibly helpful, gracious and warm staff. We immediately felt welcomed and comfortable upon arrival - from providing us with coca tea, potato soup recipes and restaurant recommendations to super-early-morning breakfasts, we loved being in the care of Patricio, Carlos and their colleagues.
The rooms are comfortably-sized, clean, tastefully-decorated and with decent-sized bathrooms (we had two different rooms, one of which had a very large bathroom). The small sitting-room with fireplace and honour bar is a cozy place to relax and chat with other guests. The free internet access (both a desktop in the reception area and wifi) is a welcome perk. It should be noted that this isn't an accommodation for everyone: this is a small property (10 or so rooms) and there isn't much which is within walking distance (though we visited the restaurant La Choza, which was quite good, and which is located at the end of the street) - but Quito is the kind of place where you tend to take cabs everywhere in any event, so that's not much of a bother.
We found that cab rides to La Ronda were around $5-8 and took about 10-15 minutes, trips to the airport were about 15-20 minutes (depending on traffic) and good restaurants were cheap rides away (the aforementioned La Choza, and the restaurant La Ronda).
We would definitely recommend Casa Aliso to friends and other travellers spending a few nights in Quito.
