  • One-of-a-kind, Romantic Hotel in Quito


    Cafe Cultura is a beautiful villa-cum hotel in the Mariscal (backpacker tourist area, fun to walk around) with each room painted with different frescoes on the ceilings and walls, fireplaces in the public areas, and a really fabulous small restaurant. The staff here speak perfect English and will help you with anything. We booked a junior suite, and they had 2 vases of lillies, a small bottle of wine, and a small basket of fruit in our room when we arrived. It's a wonderfully romantic place to stay. ($99/night for the junior suite.)

    Directions: Mariscal near the artisan market, on Robles between Juan Leon Mera & Reina Victoria

    Little bit of Luxury!


    When we arrived in our 1st destination we decided to book in to a hotel with lots of luxury just to give us time to get adjusted. I think if we had been allocated a better room our stay would have been much more enjoyable. We were in the attic area of the property and found it noisy (you could hear the people in the next room talking, snoring etc!!) and therefore hard to sleep (people tend to leave Quito early on flights to the Galapagos and luggage being moved about at 4-5am is not good!) The food was very good (but pricey by Quito standards) and the menu had a good variety of choice. The lounge area was lovely to relax in with huge sofas and a roaring fire when the nights got cooler.

    Unique Quality: The rooms are all individually decorated by artists and are quite unique (check out the web site which has picture of each of the rooms so you can choose). If you choose a room you would like to stay in make sure you specifically request it on booking. Make sure the room is in the downstairs back part of the hotel, we met a number of people who stayed and had no problems with noise.

    Directions: Cafe Culture is a short distance away from "Gringo Landia".

by tc4976 about Cafe Cultura

Jo and I normally like to find unusual boutique hotels when we travel. After our great experiences with te Hotel Roosevelt Art Deco in Prague; The Beach Hotel in Monte Carlo and Ballinalacken Castle outside Lisdoonvarna, Ireland we were eager to try this hotel. After all, Conde Nast Traveler said Cafe Cultura was one of the three reasons to visit Equador. We booked three nights.

The truth was ugly. The property was well secured behind a high wrought iron fence. We should have stayed outside. As we climbed the stairs to our room we couldn't help to be stricken by the dark gloomy wall paintings. To say our room was sparsely furnished would be generous. The light bulbs could not produce enough wattage for th light to escape the shades. The lasting insult was the leaking toilet that had stained the wood floor.

Fortunately there was wireless internet in the lobby. I was able to book the internet rate at the JW Marriott where we had spent the short first night in Equador. One night was too many at the Cafe Cultura.

Central Location

by J_P_B about Crossroads Hostal

After our bout of expense at Cafe Cultura we went for the cheaper option Hostel. Crossroads (coming from Birmingham, for those of you that know the Ex-soap opera) was in the centre of Gringo Landia and surrounded by all the amenities we required. The double rooms are large and clean. There is a kitchen, TV room and Cafe on site. Our only issue was that the room seemed to get slightly damp, check this out before accepting the room as they may have sorted it out. We got the room for $11 per person per night. Central Location
