Staff were angry and possibly overworked and unavailable. We were not informed of wifi. Night staff disappeared without trace. Someone was sleeping on a sofa in the lounge with a blanket over their head! Was that the 24 hour service? There was no drinking water provided and only one clean glass and after drinking the water from the tap we...

My friend and I stayed at this lovely hotel during my first visit to Quito. It is nicely situated on a quiet street near some busy intersections so you can get around fairly easy. The rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable, breakfast was delicious and the staff is friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the former British Embassy now known as La Cartuja (which is located in an ultra convenient part of the downtown area on a quiet street a few blocks from Plaza Fuch and a SuperMaxi grocery store) during a climbing/trekking vacation this past week.

We spent our first night in Quito in La Cartuja and loved it. We spent another night there after a short trip to the Galápagos Islands. The charming traditional building, small attractive garden and location near the main shopping and restaurant areas make the hotel the ideal starting point to explore the city. The staff were welcoming and extremely helpful,...
