Good location within walking distance to central old Quito. Very nice rooms with good beds, well kept and friendly helpful staff. Breakfast is excellent. I couldn't hear any street noise but some from neighboring rooms. I would stay there again!

We arrived at midnight and we're escorted to our small but immaculate room. A nice, complete breakfast is served from 7 til 10 which worked out well because of our late arrival. Location is a bus(.25) or taxi($3.00) ride from Old Town but a nice area 1 block from a supermarket.

Well situated this charming looking small hotel has lovely staff and turns out an excellent breakfast. But my room was awful. It was a fourth floor walk up. There was one ceiling light with a 40 watt bulb and a bedside lamp at the foot of the bed but it didn't work. Neither did the tv. No sound insulation meant...

Think of a charming little hotel sitting at the corner of the street. The inside of Hotel Vieja Cuba is as quaint as its outside. Don't expect modern facilities like card keys or central electrical switches. It is a double storey building and there is no elevator to the second floor. It is like a hotel on the countryside except...

My friends and I stayed at Vieja Cuba on the recommendation of a friend who lived in the area. We stayed in an upstairs room which had three beds. While the room was small and a bit crowded, it also felt cozy. The beds were comfortable and clean. The room was cold but we were able to request a portable...

This is a small hotel with wonderful employees, clean rooms and a big breakfast. They were always there to help when we needed it. Its gated so you don't have to worry about people coming in. There are many restaurants in the area with our favourite being Crepes and Waffles.

We stayed 2 nights when we first got to Quito, then another night returning from Galapagos, and another when we got back from the Amazon. I left luggage I didn't need on each leg, no charge. I stayed in 3 different rooms. All very clean, charming. Hot, powerful water in the showers. Not right in Plaza Foch area, with all...

This hotel is charming inside and out, albeit what I would consider a more basic/standard hotel. The location was central however it is located in the entertainment section which is basically full of bars, restaurants and clubs. We were told a lot of Quito's young crowd and students come here on the weekends to 'whoop it up'. That was apparent....

This is a really nice hotel located in the middle of the city. It has electronically locked gates, a breakfast room where you have breakfast every morning, nice rooms, friendly staff, and very good WiFi. The hotel is conveniently located close to a supermarket, some restaurants, ATMs, and the Mariscal Sucre district of the city. The receptionist was also helpful...
