I recently stayed in Hotel La Basilica in April 2021. Firstly, Bryon the manager of the hotel, will do anything to make your stay even better. He is competent and follows through. My trip had many cancellations due to Covid. Bryon, was able to make changes and help in any way. The hotel is charming. It is beautiful and relaxing. The location in Old Town is amazing. The rooms are beautifully decorated and again, charming. The beds are comfortable.the Shower is large and the bathroom is spacious. The hotel is spotlessly clean.Breakfast was delicious. Fresh fruit, fresh breads coffee and eggs. La Basilica is truly an easy walk to anywhere. I did not realize how close the walking distance was even to La Ronda. There is a wonderful restaurant that Bryon set up for me, Lavid. It is a bit upscale, but the food was delicious. Great way to end my trip. Again, 5 block walk. I recommend this hotel to anybody and even families. La Basilica offers wine and Beer at the hotel. Be prepared to pay at least $25 bottle of wine, which is the going price anywhere in Ecuador, unless you go to the store yourself and buy a bottle. If you stay at La Basilica, you will very pleased and enjoy your stay.

Absolutely new hotel in the middle of historic renter, 4 minutes walk to major squares and museums. The street is quiet and safe. The hotel has all amenities and sparkling clean. All rooms have wonderful (and different) art installations which added to the feeling of being in old Quito. The hotel is family run and it was great pleasure to meet the owners and feel their personal hospitality. The included breakfast had so many nice things, we had to ask to stop. Just a fruit plate was enough to feed three people. Terrific value for the money

We have traveled to a lot of places in different countries and continents and stayed in variety of hotels from super luxury to the very basic, this hotel stands out to be the truly unique and memorable. Before landing in Quito, the hotel has already arranged pick-up and transportation to the hotel, a pleasant welcome indeed. Once arrived at the hotel, which is located at the center of old-town and close to everything, we were welcomed by the staff by introducing us the magnificence of city of Quito and a quick tour around the entire hotel. The hotel was just updated before the pandemic, which was indeed unfortunate timing. However, you can tell the owner must have invested quite significantly in the property as shown by its well structure and decorated interior and exterior. The staff/operator was so proud of the hotel that he was essentially talking non-stop for almost half an hour welcoming us, with so much passion that would resonate well. The service is impeachable as well. A-la-cart FREE breakfast (with the best coffee) , restaurant recommendations, on-site tour arrangements, and any questions you might encounter are well taken care of by the super friendly staff. We will stay here again when we come to Quito next time.

Everything was perfect after our family of 3 was picked up from the airport. The room La Basilica is even better than the picture. The hosts gave us detailed advice on what to see and where to go (or not to go). Superb breakfast was provided every morning. There is one English speaking host and other people used translate app to communicate with us. The location is unbeatable- just walking a few mins to the Basilica and another direction to the beautiful Grand plaza.

I visited in the winter before the pandemic before a trip to the Galápagos and loved my stay here! It’s in the charming, historic part of the city walking distance to so many important tourist sites. Inside is just as charming and historic where the comfortable rooms are decorated tastefully with hand-carved wood furnishings and tapestries. They have some lovely lounge areas (one by a peaceful pond) and the courtyard where meals are taken. There’s also a rooftop area with some grand views of Quito. I stayed in the family room (the largest room on the premises) which has a second level featuring 2 twin beds. The lower level with the large bed has an adequate amount of floor space, but if you’re traveling with less than 3 people (and don’t mind sharing the same bed) you’ll have much more space in a superior double room I arrived past midnight and was still greeted warmly. If you’re arriving late, I highly suggest booking the taxi pickup service through them because they kept in contact with the driver and greeted you once you got your luggage. Special shout-out to Marian who made me feel especially at home with her kindness and making sure my breakfast was as pleasant as possible! Only areas that could have improvement would be the WiFi in the room (I had to be by my door or out in the hallway to get a signal) and the bathroom counter space was lacking. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for its charm and kind hosts!
