I stayed here earlier this month on a trip around Ecuador through G Adventures. We started and ended our trip here. I did not know what to expect really but I was pleasantly surprised. Nice, modern hotel with good, clean rooms. Awesome views of the mountains as you look over the heated swimming pool. The restaurant on the 7 th floor was ok. We had the breakfast buffet which was quite a spread. However the night we landed we went up to get something quick to eat. The empanadas were oily and terrible. Food here was expensive as well in comparison to other similar places.
The hotel is located in the newer part of town. It was about 15-20 minutes away from the airport. We paid $8 at 4:30 am which was probably a couple more than standard fare. The hotel has a line of cabs right outside. For $40 the driver (Juan) took me on a 4 hour tour of the city - all the churches and the Plaza de la Independencia as well as El Panecillo. Im sure I could have done this for much less but it was day one! The hotel is about $3 away by cab from Plaza Fochs which seemed to be the most happening part of Quito with a couple of streets lined with bars, restaurants and clubs.
So all in all this placed seemed like a good place to stay for a short trip to Quito.
