My wife and three daughters spent 4 nights in this place and we had a great time. It's very comfortable and well-equipped. The guard on duty was very helpful and friendly. It's a great location as well. We loved this part of the city.
WIFI was much better than in other places in Ecuador; particularly the Galapagos.
The only possible negatives are that 1) it's a loft, so sound carries within the unit very well and 2) it can take a bit of negotiation to get the shower to run hot, but it does work with a bit of patience.
Even with the shower situation, this is a real steal and Daniel was very reachable and attentive. We would stay in this place again in a heartbeat.

I've lived in furnished apartments in South America for the last decade. I was in Daniel's place for three months and it is close to the best I've ever rented.
The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos. It's comfortable and well equipped. Everything works. It's beautifully silent at night. Daniel is a gracious and sincere person who will fix a problem if you have one. The building's caretakers, Freddy and Alberto, are a bonus: they are kind, interesting guys who are always ready to help.
Unless you need to be right on top of Quito's party scene, I highly recommend staying in Centro Histórico. Beyond its own very great charms, it is walking distance to other interesting and beautiful neighborhoods. The city's Metrobus lines pass right through Centro Histórico for anything not walkable. If you need to get to the bars in la Mariscal, take the bus (10-15 minutes) or walk (45 minutes) and then pay a few dollars to get home in a taxi (safer late at night). One warning about Quito's Metrobus: it redefines the word "crowded." If you can avoid using it around rush hour, your life will be better.
