The Best in Quito
Posted May 6, 2012 on Hotels
First, the location was excellent - close to all the government offices and Carolina park. Second, excellent locations and lack of constant street noise are usually mutually exclusive, but not in this case. We could actually get a restful night's sleep - the little dogleg that takes this apartment away from the main drag ensured that traffic noise was almost non-existent, and we did not have to lie awake listening to the incessantly blaring car alarms and sirens that are so typical of Quito nights. Third, the apartment was impeccable. Housekeeping came in every day and kept it spotless, and the comfy beds, great showers, and plush towels all made for a very relaxing stay. In my opinion, this is the best place in Quito and we will stay there every time we've got to visit the government offices. You are walking distance from several good restaurants and from the SuperMaxi and Banco Pichincha. The Mall El Jardin and CCI are both just a short cab ride away - 4-5 minutes. Walking distance to Carolina park too. We stayed for a few days, and for 5 bucks the housekeeper took our laundry and returned it clean 2 hours later. The kitchen was well-equipped and it cut down on eating-out costs. And of course, Carmen, the coordinator, was just wonderful. Grab this place if you can - you won't find better in Quito!
