Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Quito
El Hotel Quito es cómodo, limpio y cuenta con un buen servicio. La primera noche había una fiesta en la piscina pero el ruido no nos molestó demasiado. El baño y las camas estaban muy limpias y también tenían televisión por cable por lo que pudimos ver mucha televisión en inglés. El hotel facilitaba un servicio de Internet gratuito durante los primeros 15 minutos lo cual resulta barato si vas por ahí y comparas. El desayuno era sorprendente. Mucho donde escoger (frutas, yogurt, beicon, salchichas, distintos tipos de pan, zumo de fruta natural, café). El casino estaba cerrado por obras cuando estuvimos ahí por lo que desconozco cómo sería. El hotel está en lo alto de una colina así que si bajas hacia abajo, te encuentras con muchas escuelas y restaurantes/tiendas que sirven a estudiantes. Lo cual significa comidas baratas. Comimos un pastel de canela por menos de 0,50 dólares norteamericanos. Está bien pasear de día pero es aconsejable coger un taxi cuando anochece.
Humo de los motores diesel
En las habitaciones que dan a la fachada principal entra todo el ruido de la calle así como los olores (¡¡el humo producido por los motores diesel era horrible!!). Las habitaciones que dan a los jardines y a la zona de la piscina, en la parte posterior, son mucho más tranquilas.
Good choice for moderate budget
I just returned from an 8 night stay at the Hotel Quito. I was in Quito with 3 other colleagues for work and stayed at the Hotel Quito because the people arranging our local affairs booked us there. During the 8 nights in the hotel, I stayed in 3 separate rooms and am confident that I have a good feel for the hotel. We found this hotel to be more than adequate for the price. The rooms were spotelessly clean and the beds were quite comfortable. The staff was accomodating and moved me to a king sized bed overlooking the pool (and fantastic view) immediately when a room became available. The rooftop restaurant (7th floor) has a spectacular view and the attached lounge is an excellent place to unwind after a long day. The breakfast buffet is extensive (especially for this part of the world) but the evening meals were only adequate. This hotel has an excellent fitness room and a beautiful (and spacious) outdoor pool and garden. The security in this hotel was excellent. My only concern about this hotel is that the business center needs more access for internet because the in room wireless is extremely expensive. This hotel appears to be very popular with tour groups and depending on the day of the week, the lobby can be crowded as it is often used as a staging area for the tours. This hotel is not an americanized U.S. brand hotel but certainly delivers an equivalent experience. It also has an excellent gift store with very acceptable prices.
Hotel Quito was a comfortable, clean, and with good service. The first night there was a party by the pool but the noise didn't bother us too much. The bathroom and beds were clean and they had cable so we were able to watch plenty of English television. Hotel provided free Internet service for the first 15 mins and it's still cheap if you go over. The breakfast was amazing. Lots of selection (fruits, yogurt, bacon, sausage, diff. kinds of breakfast breads, fresh fruit juice, coffee). The casino was closed for renovation when we were there so don't know what that would be like. Hotel is top of a hill so if you walk down it, you'll hit a lot of schools and restaurants/shops that cater to students. Which means cheap eats. Had a cinnamon bun for less than USD $0.50. Okay to walk around during the day time but recommend taking a taxi after dark.
Managed By Cheats
We were booked into the Hotel Quito by our travel agent from the States. We paid for a "superior" room. Burned out lightbulbs in half the fixtures, room so dim it looked like a flophouse in a detective novel. Fixtures rattled in the bathroom, poor plumbing all around. The worst was the row at breakfast. Yes, they are wonderful and they were suppose to be included in what we paid for the room, which was $100/night. There was no record of this at the hotel. Jesus Sanchez, the manager, was never there although we went to the lobby to ask the useless clerks for him three times. Erwin Dominguez, the clerk to swindled us, acknowledged his error, then refused to refund our money. A blatant cheap. The view is not worth the irritation to stay at this hotel. Any hotel that cheats you and does not care should be wiped off the tourist maps.
Rooms overlooking the front get all the city and street noise & smells (the diesel fumes were awful!!)
Rooms overlooking the gardens and pool area in back are much quieter.
gross bathrooms- rude at the front desk, smoky lobby, old hotel with bright casino lights outside and not a good location for tourism. Great breakfast.
we paid 68 with tax. Spend a little more and stay at the mercure we paid 85 with tax for modern hotel in the new city ( still bathroom was not too great). Nicest place was Patio Andaluz 85 with tax in old city but our toilet wouldn't flush, we had no water pressure, and they have one person at the front - it took 25 minutes to check in but at least the Patio Andaluz is very pretty and aunique boutique hotel.
swiss hotel is the fanciest and most expensive.
Quito is nothing special - head to the jungle, galapagos or volcanoes.
Regular hotel with great view
The glory of Hotel Quito is in the past. Nowadays it's a regular 4* hotel which rooms got old furniture, spoiled carpets and primitively equipped bathrooms. The only feature that still helps it to maintain the former popularity is its great location. What an incredible, breathtaking view!!!
Particularly from restaurant on the upper floor with wide panoramic windows. Yes, the second hit of Hotel Quito is its restaurant. Fantastic view combines with delicious food - what could be better? Breakfasts are excellent (buffet service). Fresh fruits and juices, baked delis, cereals, dairy products, hot dishes of eggs and bacon, potato and meat, vegetables and poultry... and the flavor of Andean coffee which makes you crazy.
Plus very friendly personnel and thousands of fresh roses. Smiles and marvelous flowers are around you. And you still hesitate to stay in Hotel Quito?
This hotel can't get better!
this hotel is simply the best! outstanding service, wonderful buffet for breakfast and tea... and the grounds are lovely.suggust not getting a room to close to jazzerize room, for noise. elegant old colonial building and grounds. will visit again! free internet serice.
Great View; Nice Property
The Hotel Quito may not be the most modern of the large hotels in Quito but it has the best view. It is located on top of a hill overlooking the city on nice grounds with a heated pool. The American Ambassador's house is around the corner. Distances are short in Quito, so you can easily be downtown in 5 to 10 minutes.
The hotel is renovating the rooms so ask for a renovated room. Note also that few rooms have queen beds. Most are either King or doubles. If you like large breakfasts, get breakfast included with your room. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet.
Be aware that most of the large hotels are not far from the airport so flights may disturb you. They usually end by 11:00 pm and start up at about 7:00 am.
The staff was very nice.

We arrive back in Quito after our amazing Galápagos Islands trip, wow what an experience... We check back into our lovely Hotel Quito for 3 nights and the first thing we notice is how cold it is to be back at 2.85Km above sea level and especially after spending 7-8 days at sea level in the sun on the Galápagos Islands, brrrrr. We have a …
So we arrive in Quito for a few days before we embark on our Galápagos Islands adventure. Stay tuned. The Travelling McAteers.
We arrived in Mindo Monday, late afternoon. I'll start by saying that Quito, with multiple different North and South bus terminals, as well as special bus companies not at the terminals, is extremely annoying to navigate. ANd taking public transit inbetween is a nightmare, because it takes literal hours to get between North and South Quito, and ...Mindo, Ecuador nomad143
