This is a home in the middle of Quito. The family is so nice and welcoming. Breakfast is delicious and have a great variety of food. Our room was nice, big and clean with good bed. The location is in a quiet street not far from La mariscal.

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...

We are so sorry you had to experience this, there was an earthquake that last night you were here, therefore it was something that was beyond our control, right after you left we hired a structure enginere to look at the fallen part and th cracks so he would fix the roof, the ceiling has been changed and the structure...

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.

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...

Annie, Fausto and Felipe are wonderful people. This is the beauty of a stay here, that you get to stay in a regular family home in a typical neighborhood that is well located, close to a bus stop, taxi stand and a short taxi ride away from old town. Annie makes a delicious full breakfast at the time you request....
