“Charming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

The staff was very helpful, they arranged our transportation, stored our luggage while we went to the Galapagos, suggesting restaurants and sites to see. The hotel is very charming, and the breakfast is very good. This was our first trip to Quito and I wont hesitate to stay there again when we return.

We stayed here for one night on our way back home. The place is an old house, jam packed with furnishings, pictures. The rooms were clean and pleasant - we had a suite with a private bathroom.They had bottles of water in the rooms.
Location is convenient - many eating places and a supermarket nearby.
The owners are Italian and were very kind to us when our daughter arrived here with a bad stomach bug. It was Sunday, most things were closed and we were anxious about our daughter. Claudio Sr. drove my husband around to find a pharmacy that was open, translated for him and helped us find a medication that helped. They went above and beyond to help us and we appreciated it. The kindness of strangers does make a difference when you travel!

Room Tip: We were on the top floor, and the room was quiet even though we faced the street.

Everything was perfect from the time of arrival until the time we checked out 4 days later. We had breakfast every morning from 7 to 9, but one morning we didn't get up out of bed until 10 and they still offered to prepare breakfast for us. They were extremely helpful in suggesting places to see in Quito. They were good in calling cabs and giving us advice about the city. The beds were comfortable and the maid service was great! I would definitely stay at Los Alpes again.

Room Tip: There were 4 of us traveling so we got 2 rooms and they were both nice

Besides being in an excellent location for tourists - right in the Mariscal/New Town area and close to the Historic Center - Los Alpes is a cozy place to stay. The family that runs this place is very kind and helpful. They've also done a great job keeping the rooms clean and comfortable. You won't have a flat screen TV in your room, but you'll have a spacious living quarters decorated in an old-timey and eclectic style. There's also breakfast included, which I really appreciated.

Let me focus first on what I value the most: quick check-in (within 5 minutes, just wow), clean room, friendly staff. All was exceptional at Los Alpes. I arrived t midnight (my plane landed at 11PM), and the owners allowed me to keep my room till 9MP next day; I greatly appreciate that.

However, what really is valuable in the hotel is that you feel like at home. It is an old house, and very authentic. It is filled with well-selected furniture that tells you are in an Ecuadorian house, not in a modern glass-and-concrete hotel. The carpets might be old, some tiles are cracked, but exactly that creates the impression of an authentic house. The comforter was amazing – you need to touch it. In the morning, I did not want to leave the room. I walked around the house looking at the setting of every corner.

You always see the owners and they are very friendly. In the evening, you can watch TV with Claudio senior. I was very touched when Claudio Jr. (yes, there are two owners both named Claudio) rushed to turn on the light at the corner of the living room where I was plugging in my phone.

Great place, great find, highly recommend.

We stayed at Los Alpes on two separate nights in late March/early April. They stored our luggage during the day as we explored Quito and gave us a chance to freshen up before leaving for the airport. They were forthcoming with advice on where to go and where to eat.
The rooms are not the latest in furnishing but have character. Furthermore they are clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a quiet street. All rooms are fine.

My wife had stayed at Los Alpes 15 years ago and loved it. We are on our third night and Claudio and his staff have provided for a wonderful stay once again. Breakfast has been simple (eggs, toast, coffee or tea), provided quickly to get us on our way seeing the sites of Quito - old town in one direction and the newer parts of town in the other. We are two blocks from the Cultural Museum which is a must see for the history of Ecuador and just off major streets for ease of transportation. But the hotel has been very quiet at night. Claudio has helped arranged for some of our transportation needs which has been great.
