Pros: Very friendly and helpful English-speaking staff. They're absolutely fantastic. Location - two blocks from Plaza Grande and all the old town sites. Beautiful common areas, lots of places to sit and relax. Large, clean room with no noise from street whatsoever. Free wifi for internet. Great breakfast - fresh local fruit, cereal, eggs made however you want them. Dinner was moderately priced, tasty, and with a menu including many favorite local dishes. Despite specific quips in my cons section below I wholeheartedly recommend this place. I would gladly stay here again should I visit Quito once more.
Cons: Limited counter space in the bathroom - impossible to fit extra towels, glasses and our toiletries on it. Can hear water - toilet flushing or tub draining - from room above. Also sound issues with doors and windows facing the interior patio area. Easy to hear various nocturnal happenings, so to speak, when walking by. Bar closed and no alcohol served on Sundays. Recorded owl, songbird, and frog calls from lower level in evenings cheapen the atmosphere ... but that's just IMO.
