Hostal de La Rabida is perfectly situated close to everything, but just far enough away from the Mariscal night club area that you don't get disturbed at night! It is a fun area to explore, and there are loads of restaurants and cafes. It is also close to the La Floresta area of town that is funky and trendy, with...

Thanks so much for a wonderful stay in Quito! Special thanks to William and Pablo who went above and beyond to answer our questions and give recommendations for a great Ecuador experience! La Rabida had a cozy atmosphere with a warm fire in the lobby and delicious traditional Ecuadorian soup in their restaurant.

Lovely smaller boutique hotel located near Plaza Foch in a side street-felt very secure. While room was on the small side it was spotless, and very comfortable. Loved that instead of giving out plastic water bottles (which most of the hotels do) they have a pitcher of filtered water in your room. Staff was wonderful and quickly responded to all...

A friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst touring Ecuador. This small hotel is highly recommended as it is in a very good location and excellent value for money. Our twin room and bathroom were very clean and tidy and breakfast very good. Dinner was excellent and there was an extensive choice from the menu.

Quaint place in a very trendy area. Close restaurants with fabulous customer service. They are building a high rise next door so for the next few months construction noise will be an issue. The staff couldn't be better👍. No air conditioning. Beds pretty comfortable. Locked our luggage in their storage for 8 days no charge while we were in the...

First, the staff here (Pablo, William & Carlos) are all amazing (and Pablo & William speak very good English)! Thanks guys for making our stay so personal.

I really enjoyed the Hostal's charm and the staff's attention to our needs. Unfortunately my one day there was spent in bed with altitude sickness. They were very kind, with cacao tea and chicken soup. My traveling companion had her phone stollen at the local artisan market and Pablo was very helpful getting her in communication with the police so...

The staff are attentive and despite being in the heart of the downtown restaurant district eating in is s real pleasure as they have s truly excellent chef cooking everything fresh to order and a small but well chosen wine list. Only downside is the area is best accessed by taxi at night (perfectly safe in day) but taxis are...

Quiet, small hotel located near Plaza Foch (5-10 min walk). Very secure location on a side street. Downstairs is very cozy, like a B&B, with library sitting room and cozy breakfast area. Room upstairs was a little small, but fine. Updated and very clean bathroom. Night manager was very friendly, helpful. Only negative was that the breakfast was an additional...

This hostel is really a very nice small hotel. Our room was immaculate and very quite. We had wi-fi in the room. The front desk was very helpful and not only spoke excellent English but also was indulgent with our Spanish. It even had a friendly bunny in the beautiful courtyard. We highly recommend it.
