“Average, not worth the price”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is an average hotel with clean, comfortable rooms and nice atmosphere, but its probably not worth the money - the service is lacking and the internet reception doesn't reach most of the rooms. You're better off going across the street to the Hotel Andina!

Perfectly located between La Floresta and Mariscal, anything you want or need is close at hand from Hotel Escandinavo. This is a safe, quiet area and the hotel is clean, comfortable and the price is right. The only negative is that Internet access is only from the lobby and the restaurant seems to be open only sporadically. But I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

We tried this hotel the last time in Quito, because it looked nice and had a separate restaurant. It was a bad mistake. First he fee for the website had not been paid, so I could not make reservations online. I called and after awhile got a person who could speak English, and made a reservation for $40.00. When I arrived, they had $48, but they corrected it when I presented my printout of the e-mail that they sent. The room was small and inadequate, but they said they would change it the next day. They did not! We ran out of toilet paper the first day, There was no water in the room, and all know that you don't drink the local water. The shower was so tiny that my large size Grandma would have to take a sponge bath, I called for a wake up call the morning of departure, and never received it! But the worse thing was; there was no internet in the room. One had to go to the lobby for e-mail, etc.

I gave it 2 stars only because of the location, and the fact that it was relatively cheap at $48. Just go across the street at the Hotel Andino, and Miguel will take better care of you for $40 double.

We stayed for 3 nights in November while attending Spanish Language Class nearby. Based on other internet reports, we were concerned about crime and muggings before we came and found the area to be reasonably well populated during thre day and early evenings and did not feel threatened during our stay. However we did exercise caution and used taxi's at night. Hotel staff was helpful and pleasant. Seemed to be a well run hotel. Good location for walking to nearby attractions, businesses and entertainment centers. Breakfast was basic buffet; eggs, juice, coffee and breads. prepared by non-chef staff. Room was SMALL, Bathroom SMALLER, but clean and functional with cable TV & WiFi. Bed was comfortable with european comforter bedding. Staff was helpful but with limited english skills. We would return here again for a short stay.

I stayed here for total of four nights at the start and end of my trip to Galapagos.

This really friendly hotel is located in a quite street close enough to the main hubs and eateries without needing a taxi. If you're unable to walk for more than 15 minutes you might want to pay $1 for a taxi to see the main attractions of Quito and for shopping or sightseeing but I was more than happy to walk.

My room was beautifully clean with a free multi channel satellite TV should you want it. Internet access wasn't available when I was there due to a slow connection but there are so many other cheaper places to use the internet within a few minutes walk it's not an issue.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and though English isn't spoken here as usual in Ecuador, they're very happy to try and communicate.

I loved my room on my last night with a wondeful view of the mountains, the early breakfasts, the restaurant food and the friendly service from the staff.

I didn't like the room I stayed in on my first three nights but only because it had no window and was open at the top of the adjoining wall with a gap of about 15 cm all along through to the next room so noise transfer was a tad annoying.

Wonderful, helpful people. Perfectly adequate but uninspired breakfast included. Convenient location, near the bustle of Mariscal but not in it, close to EcoVia (25 cents takes you to the Centro Historico). And of course the bizarre charm of seeing posters of Stockholm on the walls when you're visiting Ecuador.

My only beef is with some of the rooms. In seven nights I saw five different rooms, for various reasons. The big problem is noise. In general, the walls are thin, and air shafts sometimes seem to channel and amplify sounds from far away. And then, one night my neighbors partied boisterously til 2 AM. Asking them to be quiet had no effect. The staff, apparently unwilling to confront them (despite a posted quiet-after-10, no alcohol policy), were happy to let me just crash in a more distant room. So some points for trying to help.

A smaller problem is general maintenance. One room had something wrong with the TV. Another's shower head blew off when I turned on the shower. Most have no windows; one's air shaft seemed to be shared with a kitchen, so reeked of hot vegetable oil in the early morning.

My favorite room was 203. Lovely, with a balcony, real air, and a view of the mountains. 107 is not bad. 305 is charming but has no phone if you care. Avoid room 103 at all costs: bad smells, bad lighting, explosive shower, and the only cockroach...
