Annie and Fausto were the perfect hosts! They went out of their way to make our stay in Quito memorable. We were welcomed in to their home and they gave us lots of interesting information about local culture and food. The room was slightly away from the main house making it private and it was extremely comfortable and clean. Breakfast...

Really nice family, great breakfasts with different fruit each day, tea and snacks at night, fresh homemade chocolates, and a comfortable bed. The place is very clean, with a patio and a garden. It felt like home. The family is very attentive and kind. The family will give advice and explain the many things that you can do in Quito,...

This house and host may be better than any high end hotel in Quito! The entire family are incredibly helpful and sweet. Rooms are clean; we received fresh towels and room cleaning daily. We received many suggestions of things to see and do and the son, Felipe, took us (group of 4) on a full day excursion outside the city...

Anna, Fausto, Felipe and Daniela went out of their way to make our stay a good one. They served us a very tasty breakfast and provided clean towels both days we stayed. They arranged for Felipe to pick us up at the airport and to take us back when we left. I wish I could give them 5 stars but...

It is dangerous . Part of the ceiling in our room collapsed last night. They need to make lots of physical improvements. They are very nice people but it is not appropriate to have guest given the condition of the rooms. Worst room I have been in during my 15 months of travel.

It was my first time in Ecuador and Anni and Fausto made us feel so welcome. My plane was arriving some hours late but nothing was a problem :-) Great breakfast, great talks, cosy rooms in a hip district.

I stayed with Faust and Annie last year and came back this year with my son for a brief stay. They are just as lovely and welcoming as ever! The room was comfortable and the breakfast was more than we could possibly eat. Annie and Faust are wonderful hosts and their location is great. Just a short walk to Plaza...
