Charming, quiet and convenient Hotel
Posted Feb 2, 2014
We arrived at Quito 1AM from Atlanta, quickly passed through customs and was in a taxi 20 minutes later. Taxi flat rate to downtown ($40) -45 minutes at that hour. double that for rush hour. Did a Google maps translated into Spanish for directions to hotel; simply handed to taxi driver, worked great. Hotel staff night person very nice; spoke enough English to be helpful. Next day breakfast buffet- coffee, fruit, croissants,eggs very good; 7-9:30AM. Room on 3rd floor was very big ( double), kingsized bed, ensuite bath up a flight of stairs. Hotel and room looked like a personal museum (Indeed it is). Wood , & carvings everwhere.1 1/2 blocks to major street where taxis are plentiful; $2-3 to go to most plazas and other attractions in El Centro or New Town. Check out at 11:30AM; staff will let you stash luggage until a later flight. All in all, boutique experience at a very reasonable rate.
