We stayed here for two nights. The hotel was clean and comfortable although basic. This is a beautiful old home turned Bed and Breakfast right across the street from the Plaza de San Francisco. It is a wonderful location. The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast was bread, jam, yogurt, fruit, coffee and eggs made to order. We enjoyed...

There are many very nice features of this hotel, however in the end the rating is poor due to safety, which I think has to be central to any review about a hotel/B&B. I'll start with the good: Great location right off one of the main squares in old town. The hotel is beautiful, the interior is wonderful. Rooms are...

We loved this little place. Cozy, comfy and friendly. This is not the place for you if you like standard US style hotels. Family owned and run, rooms are a little different with heavy old furniture, some have outside windows and some open on the courtyard. The courtyard is full of potted plants and a pleasant balcony on the second...

Very quaint old hotel with great staff. Room was quite basic but clean. Great breakfast included in the price. The staff are great and couldn't be more helpful. Right in the centre of Old Quito so great for sight seeing.Great atmosphere. Quito is a very noisy town and you can hear all the street vendors at this hotel. Fireworks were...

Great location in old town Quito, great comfortable feel . We felt very safe and felt like we were in our own home. This is not the place for people wanting a luxury stay but for those people who want a comfortable meaningful stay. The staff was great and very accommodating. It was like staying in a museum . Very...

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful furniture, the rooms have everything and are very clean. The owner Sonia went out of her way to help us with anything we needed and served us a big and generous breakfast every day. Everyone working at the hotel is so friendly. We will definitely be back when travelling to Quito again. Thank...

Great service on behalf of the staff and inn owner. They were great in answering our questions about the city, helping us get taxis, and arranging airport transportation. While the inn has a lot of character as a 200 year old house, the one negative aspect was our room did not have any windows and was often dark and damp....

This family run hotel is in the old town of Quito. The owner Sonia with two sons and staff take really good care of their guests. They are very helpful with planing tours or just pointing out local places. Everything is within walking distance, the Hop/on Hop/off, churches, museums, galleries, restaurants, bars, coffee houses, shops and street vendors etc. Friends...

The positives: The building itself - a converted convent - is gorgeous. There is a large sitting room and a dining room with tea/cookies. The breakfast was downstairs on the ground level in what seemed like converted stables. A very unique setup. It was fairly inexpensive. The negatives: First, the Wifi was TERRIBLE here. Literally on and off every 2...
