Alston Inn Hotel

It is old, and cheap. Rooms very big, water was hot, linen clean. Secure, but do not go outside alone after dark, the area is not very safe. If you need to spend just a night in Quito, it is OK, but do not expect anything nice.

I have visited Quito three times, and all three times stayed at Alston. The street can be a little noisy, but the location is convenient. The rooms are clean and in good repair, the staff is very reliable, the manager Johhny Janine is well educated, speaks excellent Engish and has a nice sense of humor. He did everything to make my stay easy and enjoyable.

Spent one night on the way to Vilcabamba and one night on the way from Vilcabamba.
All staff friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. Johnny, the owner, was most amiable and funny...bi lingual too which helped. Had internet cafe across the street, close to main throughfare that's closed off on Sunday for bikes and walkers so plenty of shopping and restaurants close by.Very comfortable lounge area with fireplace and books.
Definitely my place to stay when going thru Quito.

I stayed at the Alston Inn Hotel last November 2006 for two nights. My room was on the ground floor - there was a pungent odour when I entered the room and there was no hot water. The water that did come out of the hot tap was yellow . It was located in an area subject to continuous traffic noise but was near to the shops and internet access. The staff were friendly and it was generally what you would expect from a budget hotel.

I stayed at the Alston hotel with my wife Jenny in a big, spotless, room with two queen size beds, private bath, lots of hot water and even they had parking for the car we rented for only $24.oo and I even paid with a credit card and they didn't charge me any extra fee like most places do.

The place is great, we enjoyed the fireplace and the book exchange, even sports on their cable tv at the lobby. The staff is so useful and nice, always ready with a smile, specially Johnny the owner, a fine young man that is always worried if we are feeling at home, he's so funny and helped us a lot.

I wouldn't change "mi casa lejos de casa" never. If we go back to Ecuador, we'll stay there for sure.

Thank you folks!

Mike and Jenny
