Hotel Rio Amazonas Internacional
Travel Blogs from Quito
After spending most of yesterday travelling and waiting around I decided to have a lazy day. Plus I'm having to acclimatise myself to the altitude again, I didn't really feel anything last time I was here, but am slightly short of breath this time. So I set my alarm for 8am got up, did some blog writing and went for breakfast at 9am. I met Kathy …
My first full day in Quito! After almost 12 hours sleep I woke feeling knackered but was determined to make it to breakfast as after no dinner the night before I was starving! The buffet breakfast was surprisingly good...I ate everything going...then realised I'd missed the hot food options so went up to try that too....scrambled egg, eggy bread, …
After a two hour and twenty minutes flight we landed in Quito. We were collected at the airport by Luis our Gap adventures driver. He was very friendly and told some information about Quito. He recommended that we take a city tour the next day so that we could visit the old town and the Equator line. We arrived at Rio Amazonas hotel a …
We only had one day to explore Quito and it turned out to be a National Holiday, so a lot of places were shut. We started the day by visiting the ´Virgin of Quito´ a large statue overlooking the city. We were able to climb part way up and the views were amazing. We could see the snowy peak of Cotopaxi Mountain behind us and the whole of the city in …
We arrived in Quito at 1am last night to be greeted by a note saying we had to be up at 5:30am for the flight to Galapagos in the morning! Bizarrely the hotel room had three double beds, but it was very nice. Danielle has bagged up some mini shampoo and conditioner and a free T-shirt.
We write this from a mystery place, as our flight to …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Rio Amazonas Internacional Quito
Notre séjour dans cet hôtel a été réservé dans le cadre d'un voyage de groupe. Nous avons réservé une chambre pour un total de deux nuits. Tout le séjour s'est formidablement bien passé.
Mon meilleur conseil, ne prenez pas de chambres au deux ou trois derniers étages, en particulier le weekend, car il peut y avoir beaucoup de bruit si un événement est fête dans les grandes chambres du haut.
El personal era bastante servicial, las habitaciones están limpias, hay Internet gratis, el desayuno es normal. En general diría que era normal, pero no notable.
Our stay here was booked as part of a tour group. We stayed 2 nights total. Our entire stay was great. Room was as expected. The bathroom, had some tolietries, and a blowdryer, and adequate towels. Breakfast was included with our room. The breakfast was buffet style. It was mostly rolls, cheeses, cereals, and 2 types of hot dishes. I am not a picky eater by far, but I was not impressed at all with the breakfast. I found the scrambled eggs, not cooked enough for my taste. We ate lunch and dinner there, and I thought those meals were good. Otherwise, I thought it was a great hotel. They have 2 free computers to use the internet, in a little room apart from the lobby. It is also directly across the street from an internet cafe. The staff was very attentive I thought. We stored our luggage there for a week, while we were at the Galapagos Islands. We had no problems with our luggage. I would stay at this hotel again.
Muy buena elección en Quito
El hotel no impresiona a primera vista, pero las instalaciones son muy correctas. Las habitaciones limpias y espaciosas, y algunas de ellas , en los piso altos, con bonitas vistas sobre la ciudad y a la cumbre nevada del volcán Cotopaxi.
Está a una calle de la zona de pubs y bares mas populares de Quito, que además es muy segura.
El servicio es muy amable. Hay servicio de internet , que nos ofrecieron gratuitamente.
Los desayubis de buffet incluidos en el precio son excelentes. Los sirven en La Canoa, un bonito restaurante que ademas resulta ser una buena opcion para degustar platos ecuatorianos.
Una muy buena elección. Nosotros elegimos este hotel para utilizarlo como base para conocer el País.
Nice place, great breakfast, good location
Best piece of advice, don't stay on the top two or three floors, especially at a weekend, as these can be noisy if there is an event on in the big rooms which are at the top.
The hotel rooms are nice, clean big bathrooms, most rooms have minibar etc, and many rooms on the front have a great view over the city.
Staff are pretty friendly and speak english. Best of all, the breakfast buffet is excellent. Probably the best I had on a 4 week trip in Ecuador and Galapagos.
I'd stay again if I were in Quito.
It was OK
The staff were quite helpful, the rooms are clean, there is free internet, the breakfast is OK. Overall I would say it was OK but not remarkable.
Good modern hotel
Usnure what to expect of Quito hotel standard but this was an excellent hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean and the bathroom facilites were of high standard. There was also a free safe in each room.
The staff were extremely helpful and the breakfast buffet is more than adequate.
The hotel is in the modern part of Quito just a minute away from the bars, clubs and restaurants. Try and get a room on a higher floor as street partying seemed to go on quite late!
We stayed five nights in this hotel over two visits. The rooms were adequate but our second one was noisy. The concierge was fantastic. The main advantage is the site - very near a good restaurant area and a very cheap and good laundry service. It is also 5 minutes walk from the wonderful El Museo del Banco Centrale.
Adequate American style hotel
This hotel is your basic clean american style hotel. The rooms were clean and you can book a double room for about 50 USD. It is in an area that is relatively safe to walk in. There is a travel agency right next door that can day tours of the city and the local area. The 24 hour restaurant is pretty good too and there is free internet access in the lobby. I would likely stay there again.
