Near-luxury hotel at a great price

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 21, 2008

Very nice hotel, in the "touristic" Mariscal area close to all the restaurants and nightclubs.
Rooms were large, clean and very comfortable (best pillows and mattressess of all the hotels in the trip).

Service was great except for a couple of people in the front desk which seemed apathetic and neurotic, respectively. Bell people and other front desk personnel were very friendly and professional.

In addition, the restaurant is great for dinner (at about $10-15 per person for a full meal). It was probably the best meal we had in Ecuador.

It is not very close to the historical center, though. You need a taxi (about 10-20 minutes, depending on traffic) to get there.

This was the only hotel during our stay that acknowledged we were on honeymoon and sent us some sweets and gave us a nice room, even though I paid a low rate. We were only staying here 3 nights and the highlight of the trip was going to be the Galapagos islands, so we decided not to go over the top here, but were delighted to see that we got great rooms both times (before the Galapagos and on the last day before flying home) and not treated like second-rate guests.

They also stored our luggage for the duration of our Galapagos trip, at no extra cost.

I paid less than 60 Eur (about 85 USD) and it was well worth it.

It was the only hotel we stayed in that had shampoo in a bottle (and not in a sample bag), hand lotion and a sewing kit. It also had TV with a lot of channels, phone, free wireless internet and complimentary bottles of water. You might need more than the 2 small bottles you get, but there are a few convenience stores located just 2 minutes away from the hotel.
Not that we needed all these "luxuries", but after a few weeks camping and staying in bad hotels, it was a nice change.

Unique Quality: Location, free wireless internet, great restaurant.
