A nice hotel. Very homely and welcoming. Staff were very friendly, attentive and helpful. Great location, nice and quiet but within walking distance or short taxi ride of some great restaurants. Only things that stopped me giving five stars were, the room was very small for 3 people and the breakfast wasn't free as advertised in the special offer which...

My wife and I stayed here in three different stints throughout our trip to Ecuador. We stayed in rooms 2 and 4. We loved this hotel. The staff were great, and the location is very convenient. Plaza Foche is 3 blocks away, and a taxi ride to almost anywhere is very reasonable. We ate dinner in the hotel most nights...

Five members of our family stayed at the Hostal de La Rabida on a total of three separate occasions in August and September 2016. We were most impressed by the hotel, the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff and their willingness to go the extra mile in looking after us. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the food...

Lovely, quiet, family hotel in Quito. It's within walking distance to a number of good restaurants. Also, the hotel restaurant is also nice. Front desk staff were very helpful as well. Thanks to their help we were able to better navigate the city. The hotel is also within walking distance of Parque Carolina. Brownie made us feel at home. Would...

Overall I really liked this hotel; quiet, nice room, beds, good shower. Good breakfast with good service, simple American style choices, all very good - eggs, toast, yogurt, fruit, strong coffee, etc. Our room did not include breakfast however price was reasonable ($7 or $8 for eggs+). Very sweet, friendly bunny lives in the patio. One complaint was that one...

Had a truly amazing trip the the Galapagos. Flew through Quito and my companions selected this B and B to stay for a few days on the way home. A block off the main road the area seems to change dramatically. But once inside you feel like you've entered a lovely, spacious tastefully decorated home. As a non Spanish speaker...

Very nice place for our 3 day extended travel subsequent to being in the Galapagos with Ecoventura tours. Great location and very nice and kind staff! Their recommendations for day tour guides (City sites, Octavalo and cloud forest) was spot on. When we return to Quito, we look forward to another stay with them.

La Rabida was the best. It was like a home away from home. While there, we never felt like we were in a big city hotel. The small staff were all super hospitable, always attentive to our needs and desires...of course, in the best possible way. Our rooms were smallish, but comfortable. The common areas are welcoming - a patio...

La Rabida is the perfect alternative to big, impersonal cookie cutter hotels. A beautiful home furnished with antiques, good art, comfy beds and chairs. Warm, attentive service. Maybe 10 rooms all together. Each different. Inviting living room and bar with working fireplaces. Bright dining room. Good breakfast. In the Mariscal district surrounded by restaurants and entertainment.
