Nice hotel, with a lovely restaurant on the top floor overlooking the city and surrounding mountains. It appears to be a non-smoking hotel, and has a small business center with computers, plus (somewhat finicky and quite slow) wi-fi. The outdoor pool looks beautiful, and there were occasionally people in it, despite the cool weather. All the rooms have 2 bottles of water.

Staff is reasonably friendly and most speak decent English, except in the restaurant. The buffet breakfast is beautiful and varied, and the dinners are well-prepared and tasty. Be very sure the omelet-maker understands your needs - my "no meat" request didn't get through. The bottles of water are brought to the table already open, which made us a bit nervous.

I was with a group that stayed there 3 times in a 10-day trip. Twice, we had great rooms with nice features, like entrance alcoves for every 2 rooms, with automatic lighting (those rooms were on the 2nd and 3rd floors, although I have no idea whether that's significant). Lots of mirrors, spotlessly clean, bed turn-down with mints.

The first night, several of us had really crummy rooms (they were on the 1st and 6th floors), apparently despite the tour operator's reservations for us. The hallways smelled of disinfectant, my bathroom had peach tiles and was amateurishly patched with pink glop, so the sink looked like someone had spit in it. There are doors to the outside from several places on the first floor that don't look or feel secure.

Room Tip: There are different types of rooms. The difference is very striking, so be sure to ask what you are...

We stayed twice at this hotel for 2 night each. We were in room 359 both times. We were comfortable even though there is no climate control as we kept our door to the balcony open most of the time. The beds were comfortable. Room service was nice to have for one of our meals. Since it is at the top of a hill, we walked many places and took a taxi back. (remember you are almost at 10,000 feet altitude) Staff courtesy was definitely mixed, with waiters, maids and bellmen being very nice and behind the front desk....not so much. I booked through booking.com and got a rate of $80 plus taxes and chgs, still under $100 a night.

The labby is clean and spacious. Restaurant on top floor has excellent view and breakfast is very good. Some in the front desk are very friendly and helpful, some don't. The room facing the street is very noisy and we had uncounted times being waken up. Room is under 3-star standard, bathroom definitely needs to be remodeled.

The location is perfect and is not too far from the Mariscal district. A cab to the Mariscal district will cost less than two dollars .The food at the hotel is expensive but there are small cafes and restaurants nearby. The restaurant on the top floor offers a great view of Quito. The staff is friendly and the service is good. When staying there, ask for rooms that are not close to the elevators. Also cabs that the concierge get for you are extremely expensive except for the one going to the airport. The best thing is to just walk across the street and flag a cab. Make sure that you get a cab with a meter. We flagged a cab to go to the equator and it costed s $12. For the same trip, the cab driver from the hotel wanted $50 and was finally willing to do it fr $20.

Room Tip: The rooms near the elevators are noisy. We found that the rooms on the first floor were more comfort...

Hotel Quito is a good choice for convenience to the airport. The rooms are comfortable and offer the needed amenities. As everyone has commented, the breakfast is very good and the views are impressive. The service was very good.

Not just overpriced, grossly overpriced. Also, oversold as a luxury hotel. Rooms are pretty spartan. Every "amenity" used, such as the pool, is an additional charge. Breakfast is good, but not $12 each good. Exorbitant for Ecuador.

Does have ancient dining room on top floor with a great view.
