“Best hotel close to the best park in Quito !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2011

This is not the best hotel in Quito but it is the best hotel close to the Park “Las Carolinas”. You just need to go out and and cross the street and you are right there in the park. This is definitively great. You have the chance to start your day breathing the nice air sourranded by trees in the middle of the city !...the hotel itself is good..Service is very nice, rooms are spacious, and the breakfast is also good…You can enjoy this experience with a good price..

The hotel is reasonable, much simpler than the other Howard Johnson's Ecuador,
In the entrance hall has a good impression of the hotel, but when you enter the rooms, I realized that are older rooms than I expected,
Although Quito is a cold city, I felt lack of control of temperature,
The staff are very helpful and polite.
I have no complaint of cleaning the rooms, but do not let praise.
Consider an average hotel, good but not unforgettable.

We were so lucky as on arrival out taxi driver could speak English and after suggestions from the Hotel staff - we "hired" him for an excellent tourist view and resume of this city endeing up at a restuarant that overlooked the city.
Amazing staff at the Hotel and the driver Thanks Beunos.

My 2 tweens & I stayed here on our way from Cotacachi to Canoa because it is comfortable and they allow us to store our luggage there (Lugging 6 bags of heavy luggage around anywhere is unpleasant). It is convenient to both the bus & air terminals and the staff is 99% wonderful (always some jerk no matter when you travel).
Although it is more expensive than we are accustomed when traveling, it is no more expensive than other hotels we have visited in Quito which are considerably less suitable.
We found we were able to communicate with the staff in English & our broken Espaniol and whenever a communication breakdown occured they had an English speaker present immediately.
Thumbs-up & highly recommended!
One suggestion: reserve online because they tack a nearly $20 fee if you register at the hotel. Beware of some of the online agents as they do not allow changes in schedule or cancellations. Book directly through HJ online and you should no problems.
HJ was the only establishment in Ecuador (where internet was available) where I had serious internet problems but they remedied that problem as quickly as they could.

This is THE hotel we will use while in Quito.

We spent a week at this fabulous hotel. The moment our taxi arrived, someone was at the door to help us with our two very young children (3 years old and 6 months old). The lobby always had complementary fresh juice and cookies and our room was very clean and comfortable. Be aware that my husband had to mostly speak Spanish with the front desk as the employees' English was not the best. We did, however, received an excellent tour guide/driver for the week from the front desk. Be sure to ask for Senor Nelson! Also, the hotel is between two very busy streets so it is a bit noisy at night, but everything else was so great, it's worth packing your ear plugs.

With a lot of places to stay in Quiot, why stay at an Americanized hotel that is priced about the same as in the USA?. I stayed there because I just needed a place to stay that I could count on. Warm enough with a restraurant, room service, and an early morning shuttle to the airport.. .I got all this.

The one problem was a misundertanding was about the Shuttle getting from the airport to the hotel. Did I misunderstand?? I thought it was included and that was a big factor in my choice. The taxi only cost $6.00 and the hotel did provide a free trip back to the airport. Room service was affordable and acceptable. For just a place to stay over when catching an early flight, this is fine.

The hotel is in very good conditions; very clean, with nice scents all over the place and spacious rooms. The breakfast is excellent; a full breakfast with hot and cold items. I was particularly impressed by the variety of fresh breads and pastries and the coffee was great too. All the staff service that we interact with were very friendly and attentive. The only flaw of the hotel is that is not closely located to major tourist areas although is across the street of La Carolina park. We never visited the park but it looks like a nice place to walk. On the other hand, the location is conveniently close to the airport for people with a short stopover or an early flight.
