“Cheap, but less nice”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

Cold rooms, we slept with our clothes on.
Toilet and shower not in the room, just outside.
No soap at toilet, had to ask for it.
No towels in the room, had to ask for it.
Toilet paper, had to ask for it.
But its very good price and ok breakfast.

Thank you for taking the time to send us your comments
about our hotel.

I'm really sorry for all these drawbacks.
Unfortunately the reservation was made ​​at the last minute and the maid had not yet left the soap, toilet paper and towels in the bathroom.

It is true that there are a little cold nights in Quito (50 ° F), which is why we have provided our customers with extra blankets.

Thanks again for your comments as they help us to improve our service.
