While in College I lived here. I spent so many days studying in front of volcanos and snow caped mountains, very relaxing and inspirational!

Right in the north-center of the Metropolitan Quito area, easy access to amenities and attractions of the city,

Now open for tourists, we have added a little kitchen, fridge, stove, microwave, coffee pot, etc included.

One King or two single beds, can be provided. One full bathroom with shower, hot wather 24/7.

Wi-Fi, Cable and phone for local calls. Book exchange possible.

Supermarkets, bakeries, fruit stores, banks, gyms, parks… within walking distance. A must our favorite 'pastry-coffee shop'. Or our favorite Sushi corner, top ranked on Trip Advisor. Just few blocks away!!!

Interaction with guests
I live on the second floor above the apartment so I am normally available in case you need anything. I am a people person, but I am very respectful of your privacy. So you can have me in small or big doses as you prefer or need. I am happy to help if the case comes around.
