    A Taste of Scandanavia in Quito

    by

    I was here at the Hotel Escandinavo on two occasions. It is a quaint hotel to the north side of Quito, about 20 minutes away from the airport. The hotel was quiet, clean, and both nights passed peacefully. The hotel was happy to hold my bags on check-out day while I wandered around Quito, and were very friendly. Overall it was a good experience, and I would definitely return to this hotel.

    Unique Quality: It was nothing exceptional, but it was clean and quiet and reasonably-priced. Exactly what a good basecamp hotel for your stay should be.

Hotel...Fuente de Piedra II/danger of Quito

by bfoxy

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am spending 4 days in Quito at the Fuente De Piedra II hotel booked by my travel agent on Bas Quend 721...I understand it is in the middle of the Marsical district and we are four woman staying in that hotel...I have read the forums on the dangers and warnings of this district and I have to say that I am a little apprehensive...Has anyone known of this hotel? Do I have to spend my evening sitting in the hotel room or is that dangerous to venture out at night in a group..I have read mixed warnings. Some people say it is safe but be careful and others say that it is completely dangerous...Any feedback?

I'm not shure about this district.
But in general it shouldn't be a problem in a group of 4. Just observe common security rules...

- in the night avoid dark streets without people
- walk only along the main streets
- do not accompany with strangers to other parts of the city
- do not take curious taxis on the street (call them from a taxi company if you need one)
- do not wear adornment, expensive watches etc.

Bfoxy,

I do not the Hotel per se... but the Mariscal area is one of the where the majority of tourists stay in Quito.. It has a great congregation of hostels and hotels as well as a lot of schools where Spanish is taught. It is the part of Quito's nigthlife, full of bars,internet cafes and clubs. It is always crowded especially on the weekends at all times of the day and night. You will be safe. Like anywhere else use your common sense if you stay out late at night, although like I said the area is always full of people and also there is police at almost every corner to direct traffic... even late at night. Have fun and enjoy!

La Mariscal is one of the most touristy neighbourhoods in Quito because of its nightlife. It's full of restaurants and bars. You shouldn't feel unsafe, just use common sense like in anywhere in the world.

No worries, I don´t know the hotel, cause I always stayed in another one which I liked very much. The neighborhood is safe, as safe as in any big touristy city... be carefull with pickpocketers, don´t walk into dark alleys, be carefull of suspicous guys on the street... that is all! I have been in Quito al together almost a month and nothing has ever happend.

Travel Tips for Quito

City of Eternal Spring

by Weny

The weather is wonderful. It is always 72 degrees and sunny. It is the best place to organize a trip and book a flight to the Galapagos. Quito is a very historic city with great historic buildings and churches. The thing I will always remember is the beautiful angel that stands on hill above the city. When you look up she seems to be flying over the city and there are clouds swirling all around her just like in a painting of heaven.

fountains in the median strip

by b1bob

Before coming to Quito, I had never seen a fountain in the middle of a median strip. There are three of them at the calle Mariano de Jesús. It's nice to see the city trying to make an otherwise bland and boring section of town stand out.

Street Children

by mikey_e

I didn't want to put this tip in the Dangers/Warnings section, since street children are rarely dangerous in Quito, and the most problems you might have with them is that they will bother you for a bit with chiclets or other trinkets that they are trying to sell. For the most part, there is not a culture of harassing tourists in Quito, which makes it a welcome change from many other Latin American cities. Nevertheless, there are plenty of children who live/work on the streets and do not attend school, a phenomenon that the government is working hard to eradicate. These children are most often of indigenous background and earn their living selling thing in the street (sometimes in traffic) or shining shoes.

Get out of the city!

by mlf7

Visit one of the lodges or nature preserves in the area. We went to Bellavista and found it to be a worthwhile adventure and nice break from the bustle of the city and the "skim air" of Quito. (The altitute of 9200 feet was a bit uncomfortable for us--coming from sea level.) Bellavista is about 2 hours outside of Quito (check out their website for more info), not exactly easy to get to but we hired a guide from Quito who drove us there (highly recommended.)

Indigeous Art in the Middle of the City

by tejanasueca about Mercado Artesanal Mariscal

Forgot to get some stuff when you visited Otavalo??? Do not worry, this market has most things you can get in Otavalo. It might be a little pricier than Otavalo, but you will be able to find most things you need...and of course the opportunity to get a piercing or two! Local articrafts, t-shirts, and anything else you can think off. Expect to pay a little bit more than you would in Otavalo.
