We stayed a total of 6 nights at this sweet, quiet hotel in Quito. It is a small establishment near many of the Old Town attractions. The staff is extremely helpful, English speaking, willing to arrange sight seeing trips, and prices were good. The rooms were very clean with hot water for showers, comfortable beds, and safes in the room....
