This is a really nice hotel, in a beautiful colorful building, but in my opinion highly over priced, and therefore over rated.
The hotel is excellently located in the La Mariscal part of the town, just a couple of blocks from Plaza Foch, the party and nightlife center of Quito. Even though it is so close, the street is actually very quiet (but do read my comment about the room and the noise below).
I stayed for a night in a single ensuite room for $42/night. The rooms are very clean, the bathrooms are excellent. The staff is very friendly and speak English (not a big issue for me, but probably for some travellers).
However, compared to some of the other hostels I stayed, and for less than half the price in the room and the bed was tiny. Another downside of that, although not a lot of noise from the streets, all the noise from the hotel itself comes into your room, through the walls.
The breakfast, for a place that calls itself a B&B was another downer. Just bread, butter and juice. Most other hostels I stayed in in Ecuador, which included breakfast had far better and filling options.
My opinion, skip this place. Plenty of really great options in quito where you get it all - rooms, service, friendly staff, great atmosphere etc.
