“Great experience at Balcon de la Cuenca”

While visiting Ecuador in March 2011, we had the good fortune to stay 5 nights at Balcon de la Cuenca. Located in a nice neighborhood close to the historic center, we were within easy walking distance or short taxi rides to many of the city's top sites. The apartment is spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Neighborhood grocery stores and a local bakery provide everything we needed during our stay. The two cell phones and lap top that are included for no extra charge were handy to have. Leonor, the owner who lives in New York answered many questions for us while planning our trip and helped us arrange for a driver to take us on several day excursions. Her mother, Hilda, serves as the local property manager and was wonderfully helpful while we were in Quito.
Balcon de la Cuenca is a true gem, I would highly recommend it. Not only is it an economical alternative to hotels but it provided us a richer experience by emersing us in a local neighborhood.
