A charming little hotel in la Mariscal. Very friendly. Good value. I would recommend this little place for sure to any of my friends :-)

This is not a 5 stars hotel... So if you look for a swimming pool and to be served like a King that's not your place. This is a simple little place that has the charm of the people of the area.

I stayed 6/5-20/2013 in La Casa Sol. Channeling the name, this hostel was decorated with yellow, red, and orange. There was wood or tile flooring. The hostel was secure, with a desk staff to lock and unlock the gate. They had a cafe style dining room, a front den, and a back sitting room. It was clean and welcoming. I was in a large group. The rates were discounted.

- There was a lot of construction in the street and area. Room 33 was next to the street (dogs, sirens, and so on abound).
- A few of the beds broke while sitting on them, or boards dropped out of the frames. The staff was amazingly efficient at repairs.
- There was occasionally the scent of sewage in the bathroom. We just shut the door and it lasted about a day.
* There was WiFi available near the desk area (dining room, den, sitting room).
* There was laundry available at $2 per kilo - a large load cost me $12.
* I didn't have many problem with getting hot water; I showered mostly at night, and occasionally early in the morning.
+ The staff are wonderful - patient (especially with my limited Spanish) and welcoming.
+ Fresh fruit, juice, jam and buns every morning. Eggs are $2 - make sure that you get a receipt. I now have a new favorite jam (guava) and juice (passion fruit).

The hotel was clean and situated near the Plaza Foch where there are many restaurants. It is within walking distance of the red bus stop and near a main street which i have forgotten the name for shopping.
The bathroom was very small and the only problem we had was the water flow in the shower. It was either a dribble of very hot water or it was cold.The girls on the desk were lovely to talk to and they were very helpful.
The breakfast is a platter of fruit and a roll with jam. Eggs are extra costing $2. Around the corner is a great bakery. We had a few rolls made up daily for our day travels. Walking distance to the markets approx 6 blocks but they are not big blocks. We are in our 60's and it was a good walk there and back.

Cheap and cheerful and we felt safe. Felt we got excellent value for what we paid. Compact bedroom accommodation and loo and shower fit for purpose. Very pleasant communal area with a range of pastimes available and access to tea.

Room Tip: Try and be away from kitchen area to avoid being woken early .

Cozy B & B 2 blocks from Plaza Foch- near all the restaurants and tourist attractions. The staff is very accomodating here and friendly. I have stayed here for 6 nights and my upstairs , double room is quiet,spotless , has plenty of hot water and has wifi. The staff placed an electric space heater in my room to take the chill off in the night. Daily breakfast is served to you in a sunny pleasant space and consists of cafe con leche, a different fruit juice each day, warm rolls with butter and jam, eggs - your way- fresh local fruit and granola with yogurt if you like.The location is perfect- mid way between the Center Historico and the north part of town with its shopping mall ( the size of a small city ) and its restaurants. I highly recommend Casa Del Sol.

Room Tip: The upstairs room are a little more quiet. Ask for an electric space heater if you tend to get cold...

I loved this place for it's warm and welcoming atmosphere, cosy private rooms with hot showers, beautiful decoration, helpful staff and its location. We got wifi in our upstairs room. Breakfast was simple and delicious. It's a very short walk to the action in La Mariscal but surprisingly quiet for sleeping. The window in our room was not made of glass and occasionally noisy when people spoke in the hallway or downstairs. The only other minor complaint was our temperamental TV that would switch off randomly (btw Spanish speaking channels only). Great location for accessing tour agencies for the Galapagos etc. Overall, a nice little oasis in Quito that I would stay at again.
