“OK as a bed for the night”
Reviewed 13 December 2011

Needed a budget hotel as we were landing in Quito after midnight and leaving at 6am so review may not be truly representative of the hotel's facilities. We only saw the lady night receptionist who had to be woken up to register us. The night porter boy was very helpful in carrying our heavy luggage up and down stairs to the annex, and then quickly got some towels which had not been provided in the room. We had a few hours sleep and a quick shower and then left. Room was clean and basic, shower area a bit worse for wear. We had booked for another night's stay on return from Mindo but cancelled as decided hotel not for us, not sure about the area and wanted to be in Quito Old Town. Was fit for purpose in terms of what we needed but don't think I would have wanted to spend much "downtime" there as the rest/communal areas did not look very inviting.

Stayed one night with a large group. Three of us got a room downstairs close to the street. The noise began around 1 am - shrieking, slamming, clonking, clanging, stomping, tapping, yelling, shouting, thumping......I could go on and on! (Much like the noise) It went on until about 4 am and then we finally got to sleep. A sleeping bag out on the sidewalk would've been preferable. Oh, the room was clean and the bathroom adequate. And our friends who stayed upstairs said the noise was more tolerable there. So don't take the downstairs room!

clean enough, $35/night, basic but free wi-fi, all staff very friendly and most speak english, very close to the new town (club pub restaurants) area but still quiet at night and is only a short taxi fare to old town area. We would stay here again if budget backpacking. The cafe out front is very good and cheap - value for money.

This hotel is clean but basic. If you are interested in a bed, bathroom and little else for cheap this is what you want. If you are interested in luxury travel look elsewhere.

This is a very good hotel to catch between flights. Rooms are absolutely no frill but clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to the airport and is known by the Taxi drivers. No restaurant but only a short distance from several neat places. For convenience to airport and price, you can't beat it.

I arrived and they did not have my reservation. That did not worry me since they got me to a room. The room was large, TV, and shower only. I stayed there two nights. The staff spoke broken English, but I used my Spanish. They were VERY helpful and accomidating. For the price and the location, it was worth the expense.
The hotel has a place for cars as well. The hotel is divided into the main hotel and a walkway to the back of the hotel that is partially covered. WIFI is available, but not in all rooms.

I was extremely surprised and happy with the quality of this hotel. After spending a week in Peru in rough lodging, I didn't have high expectations at all. The hotel is in the new part of the city, about 20 mins from the airport. The hotel is a little hidden, sandwiched between two little restaurants. The older gentleman at the desk spoke no English, but was more than helpful explaining where to go to eat. This is an older hotel, large wooden staircase, and rooms that seem to be out of the 80s. For the money, however, I had two full beds and my own bathroom; a rarity in this part of the world. Wifi was free, but the reception in the rooms can be fuzzy. Bathrooms are far from luxurious, but are all you really need. There is a tiny tv in the room that barely works, but who goes to Quito to watch tv? The street on the weekends can be pretty loud since there are quite a few bars and clubs down a few blocks away. If you do go out late at night on the weekends, it's not a very safe area. At around midnight, the gate is locked and you must buzz in to enter the hotel. There was a great pizza place about a block away that was quite tasty (can't remember the name), as well as other restaurants nearby. Taxis pass by frequently so transportation around the city is pretty easy. The desk attendant had me wait inside with my luggage on the last day, while he went out, flagged a taxi and negotiated a $5 fare to the airport. I have to say, there are no real frills with this place, but that was one of the most decent things any hotel has ever done.
