The Casa Joaquin hotel is a newly renovated family house with a very good decoration taste. The rooms are small and cozy and there's no need for air conditioning as the temperature keeps around 22oC whatever it is outside (the days we were there it varied from 9oC to 25oC). The shower is hot and the towels are white and heavy! They provide two small bottles of water every day in the room. The breakfast is very good with fresh fruits, eggs, yougurt, breads, expresso coffee or tea, etc. The service is very friendly and Bolivar and Kirk try their best to help you enjoy your stay. If they only had a frigobar or a better quality amenities in the room I am sure they would jump to a 4 star classification. But its worth the price. The only attention one should take on choosing this hotel is the location: on Mariscal, the nightlife is on the hype and you may cross drunks or drug dealers just after 7PM. The police is around though. But if its your first time in Quito or you are staying there for only a few days, I would rather stay at the old town as the essence of Quito is there and the best visiting places out of the historical site will need a taxi ride even from Mariscal too (Teleferico and Gayasanim Museum). The taxi is not expensive, but the drivers try to charge you in advance instead of using the taximeter what should be the right thing to do.
