My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The building has a lot of character; the rooms are on the small side for the most part, although my husband and I got the largest room. We were originally in a small room but were moved to the big room after our first night at the suggestion of the staff. There are plants everywhere and lots of natural light in the common area in the middle. Lots of seating, a bookshelf with books to read, lots of interesting decor. The wifi was on the weak side but worked. Rooms were clean, shower had good pressure with plenty of hot water. TV was small and didn't have great reception, but I wasn't in Quito to watch TV so that wasn't a big deal to me. Both of the beds I slept in were very comfortable with a really plush comforter. Perfect location right next to San Francisco in the old town.
The breakfast was good; eggs, bread, fruit (I discovered a new fruit I'd never had-grenadilla), fresh juice and coffee, tea or hot chocolate. We also ate dinner two of the nights at the restaurant owned by the family that breakfast is served in. Excellent meal both nights.
The best part of this place is the staff. They were all incredibly friendly and helpful. We had trouble being double billed by a nearby restaurant (credit card didn't go through then was charged later in the day after we'd left-we paid cash at the restaurant when the credit card wouldn't go through). They knew the owners of the restaurant so credited us what we were doubled billed and took it off our hotel bill, planning to later be reimbursed by the restaurant. This is a wonderful family run hotel, and I can't say enough good things about it. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Quito and will definitely stay here again if I return to Quito.
