“A very nice play to stay!”
Reviewed October 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Security should not be a concern. The apartment has security at the entrance with an attendant at the desk. The apartment is well secured by an external locked steel gate in addition to the apartment door lock. Elevator also has security features which will not allow a stranger to use the elevator. The whole area is very safe. I was out in the evening on many occasions till 8:30 PM and found no problems contrary to what I had read on the Internet. I cannot vouch for late night events as I did not stay out late. Police is present everywhere.

It is a one bedroom apartment with a beautiful panoramic view of Quito. One can observe a variety of changing scenes during the day depending on the weather conditions, and at night the view is equally spectacular.

Four volcanoes can be seen from the windows. From the bedroom window you can view Cayambe, and part of Pinchicha which can be better viewed from the streets below, if you want to see the peak itself before heading out for an expedition. From the drawing room window you can see Antisana and also Cotopaxi. Cotopaxi can be viewed from the right side of the balcony looking to the left. Someone has to show you Antisana volcano because it does not look like a familiar style of mountain formation.

You can also see the famous historical church, which dominates the view, and Panicillo among other sites from the drawing room. For a tourist perspective the apartment provides an interesting bird’s eye view of the city.

Locally Plaza Foch is very visible. It is a short walk.

Next to the building is a parkette, a place for city organized events and it has an information booth where you can get local tourist information along with city maps. City events included Ecuadorian dances, and market display of Ecuadorian products.

The area is surrounded by a large variety of restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines! You can choose between Ecuadorian, European, Chinese, Indian cuisine and familiar fast food restaurants.

Since the apartment has a well furnished kitchen there are two major grocery stores within walking distance, and an Ecuadorian farmer’s market. For fruits and Vegetables a visit to the farmers market and the closer one ( at least not so far) is Santa Clara Market at Versalles Street. A taxi fare might be less than $2. However, it is within walking distance. Coming back a taxi might be well worth while if you have a lot to carry. It all depends on what kind of gastronomical adventure you seek!

Artisans market place is within walking distance about a mile away along Reina Victoria Ave which incidentally goes through Plaza Foch. The market place has all kinds of jewelry, arts and crafts, and dresses designed and made in Ecuadorian styles. Please make sure if you buy an Alpaca blanket it in fact has some Alpaca wool in it! That is one caveat I like to point out. The good thing about this market is that you do not have to go to Otavello which is slightly larger but essentially the same. Otavello might be cheaper though but you have to bargain as the prices are not fixed.

For taxi service I found it a good idea to request Veronica for making arrangements for travel in the city. The taxi drivers most often provide better and responsible service as a result. Taxi services are quite economical to use in the city. Yellow taxi cabs are the ones to use for safety. Not to mention the public transit system. Ride is a quarter and if you are a senior it is only 12 cents!

Liked best: An apartment which was higher with a view of the city and air was fresh and clean! It was like home!
Liked least: Bedroom was slightly noisy in the morning due to traffic but you expect that.

Hi Keshav
I thank you for your review full of important details about the neighbourhood. You went away just a few days before the Hábitat III famous event. It was just incredible. Never seen so much people in the city, Mariscal and historical center.
Thank you again hid your stay in my suite. You will be ever welcome!

“All the conveniences of home were in this well appointed suite.”
Reviewed January 1, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This apartment was perfect. The decor was warm and inviting with a European flair. The building is very secure with 24 hour security personnel for your safety and comfort. The building staff was also friendly and helpful with directions. They answered other questions I had about the neighborhood. There are a couple of lavanderías within a block and everything you could want or need is furnished. I was able to prepare meals in the well equipped kitchen. The bed and bedding were very comfortable which is not always the case in Ecuador. The water was hot, hot and plentiful. There was wifi, cable TV, CD player, electric fireplace and more. A bonus was how quiet it was. You would never know you were in the middle of the Mariscal. The location has numerous restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and assorted shops. I found three parks within walking distance and loved walking around the area. The host was gracious and I look forward to staying here again the next time I am in Quito.
