The apartment was exactly as advertised (thank you!), clean, comfortable and in a secure building with 24 hour guards. The location is great in an upmarket, bustling neighborhood full of restaurants and taxis easily available at any time. The internet connection did not freeze or get stuck - I was working remotely so this was very important to me. The underground parking was also made available - this is an added safety feature, especially at night. The owner is lovely, responded quickly and was available for any extra requests. The only drawback is as the apartment is in a busy intersection there is some noise from the street even though it’s on the 5th floor.
Thank you so much Pauline, lovely place, would recommend it to anyone visiting Quito :)
