“Great, very welcoming hotel”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

I visited this hotel and was impressed with the staff who went out of their way to ensure everyone was comfortable and enjoying their stay. It's located close the airport in a safe neighborhood with plenty of access to private and public transportation. It was impeccably clean and breakfast was delicious as well! A great to stay in Quito!

Room Tip: Speak to the staff, they're very accomodating.

An inexpensive business hotel very near the airport, we stayed here the night before we flew to Galapagos. The rooms are small and simple, and the bathrooms smell a bit musty. The staff proved to be very helpful, however, and the proximity to the airport makes this a good base if you need to make an early morning flight.

I visited the Hotel Sandmelis for 2 weeks last month. I booked a trip to Ecuador to travel round the country and also visit the Galapagos Islands. I booked by ringing up the Hotel directly - the staff speak very good English and the rates were very affordable, the equivalent to about £20 per night. I recieved a very warm welcome and the immediate surroundings were very pleasant, lovely furnishings and pictures and very clean. The room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable! My room was ensuite. The hotel has only been open a few months and the facilities as a result are immaculate. I found the breakfast to be lovely as well, a full continental was on offer, and the staff were more than happy to accomodate my extra request for fried eggs! Sandmelis was a great base for traveling around the city as it is really well located in the centre of Quito. All in all very impressive!
