Stayed at this hotel for one night last week. I was picked up at the airport at 11:30pm by local friends and they arranged this place. They didn't know that I had stayed there the year before. This report would be the same for both visits.
My room had 2 double beds and 1 twin bed in it. It was clean and simple. Bathroom was small, but I had hot water. They give you shampoo, bottled water and soap for free. Other drinks available from in-room fridge for extra charge.
Wi-fi worked fine in my room. TV was the old style (not flat) but was fine and there were a few english speaking channels.
Towels were good, linens were clean, but BEDS ARE HARD AS ROCKS. I think that's "normal" here in Ecuador.
LOTS of street noise- and I was on the 5th floor. Complementary breakfast was pretty good= self-serve scrambled eggs, fruit, fruit juices, rolls.
If you're only there for a few hours like me, it's probably fine. I paid $60, taxes included. I think that's the Ecuadorian rate, so if you know a local, have them make the reservation for you. I think the "gringo rate" is higher. I'm headed back in a few days to fly out and will try a different place for comparison (the mattress specifically).
