This grand old hotel is located in Old Quito, just two blocks from the historic Plaza Grande and many historical buildings and museums. Since it is in Old Town, it takes longer to get to the airport and some of the "cosmopolitan" aspects of North Quito must be accessed cab or other transportation.
The hotel it self has a beautiful design. It is centered around two courtyards that are covered by skylights. The first courtyard is the restaurant on the first floor. The second is where the bar and garden is located on the ground floor. We stayed over two different periods and had two different style rooms. Our First stay was a one room bedroom, with a very large bed and some chairs and furniture, done is a marvelous old Spanish/Ecuadorian theme. The amenities were typical (shampoo, rinse, hand cream, soap; two bottles of water which could be refilled at a purified water station). The second time we stayed, we stayed in a two level room with a sitting room downstairs and a loft with a kingbed and bathroom above. Again, beautifully appointed.
Breakfast came with the meal was generous in fruit and fruit juices, toasts, cereals, yogurts and other staples, but no bacon, hash run etc. Eggs were available on request. The hotel had two computers and a printer, plus a "living room" with coffee and tea available 24 hrs, plus books etc.
The bar ion tr ground floor was nice, equipped with large screen TV (which we never saw on) and a well-stocked bar with rinks at reasonable prices.
Service was attentive , the hotel wasbery clean and well kept. Since we went to the Galapagos from there and then returned to this hotel, we stored gas with them for a week at no charge.
This was a very good stay and is highly recommended.
