First the pros: Nice interior courtyard, quiet, ok location about 10 mins walk from restaurants and the cathedral, comfortable, if basic room, modern computer with fast connection. The staff were nice enough though not overly welcoming.
Cons: We booked this specifically for the 'airport shuttle' service we saw online - there isn't one, we just ended up getting taxis to and from the airport (expect this to take between 45 mins - 90 mins depending on traffic). The 'bar and restaurant' were only open at lunchtime and served a very limited menu del día.
Disappointing breakfast - getting bread and jam instead of a ham and cheese sandwich required some persuasion (in Spanish), and we then got one roll between two of us. At a cheap hostel this wouldn't be such a surprise but we expected better from mid-range hotel.
Price - given the limited facilities, there are surely better value options around Quito.

This is my fifth trip to S. America and I have to say this hotel is a disappointment so far. The location is great as far as proximity to old town, however this hotel is not accurately represented online. First, we had contacted the hotel in advance for a pick up from Quito Airport. Despite two follow up emails, no one was there to get us. Took a taxi instead without problem. 27$. The hotel is very basic, paint and facilities in need of repair (dingy, light bulbs missing, outlets blackened and burned). Furniture and decor dusty in public areas. Needs a good cleaning and overhaul and would be a great place. The Internet codes for wifi did not work and the only one that did has no connection in the room itself. Only in the common area. Be prepared for no heat also. There was a space heater, but its plug was black and the plastic melted. No chance I'd stick it in a wall outlet. We asked for a map of the area and they don't have any available, but did give a recommendation for a restaurant with a great view down the street.
I'm a very laid back traveler and would say I have reasonable expectations for a big city in Quito, but I've stayed in hostels better than this for a lot less money. Save yourself the headache and take a bus to old town from somewhere with a better value. W paid $60.00 for the night, but won't be staying more than one.

We only stayed one night because we arrived too late to look for another hotel. We didn't even had breakfast the next day, the service was terrible. The reception clerk was also the waiter. We asked for breakfast and after waiting for about fifteen minutes we left as we didn't get anything not even a single cup of hot water.

My wife and I spent four nights here on two occasions 10 days apart in two different rooms, one in the back and one on the street. Could be charming with some essential upgrades.

Pros:
Good location close to Main Plaza in historic Old Town.
Nice guys working the front desk.
Good bathrooms, except for the sink that leaked water onto floor creating a small puddle.
In-room safe.

Cons:
Dingy carpets and bed spreads.
Mediocre breakfast.
Overall dark atmosphere.

Eating: We didn't try it, but the attached restaurant did a healthy lunch business with locals. A number of restaurants are within walking distance. Vista Hermosa nearby was a treat with 360-degree rooftop views over Old Town architecture and decent music on Saturday night, but the food was nothing to write home about.

Based on previous reviews my wife and I, and friends, booked rooms at this hotel for 4 nights. Big mistake. Although we had booked two rooms through Booking.com the hotel had only reserved one but luckily(?) they still had a room available.
Rooms are dark and dingy with dirty nylon carpets.
Facilities are negligible as is the service.
Members of staff are few and hard to find and are dressed like Libyan secret police officers.
Parking is available on the next block but cost $15:00 per day.
