This apartment was in a OK neighborhood, in North Central Quito Ecuador. I was located near a huge, nice, well used (Parque Carolina) green space. It was also near a medium size mall, "Mall del Jardin", which was handy, and near a couple of main arterial streets that made getting places easier. The apartment was on the 7 floor of a nice building with a couple of great coffee shops on the ground floor, and there was an open roof, referred to as a community terrace that was big, but apparently unused. The amenities were OK, with a minimal amount of pots, pans, dishes and flatware, but it worked out. I had to fix the shower curtain that needed a new shower rod and kept falling down and a towel holder by the vanity that was loose. I should have questioned more on some things(how to use TV, nearby public transit stops and activities.etc.), but that was minor and my fault.
Overall great experience and very nice and hands off type owners.
Maria greeted us at the apartment after giving us so much information regarding how to find it etc. She sent us photos of the building and maps to help us get there. She even offered to help us with any excursions we were thinking of.
The apartment was very new and has 24 hr security, there is a little bakery downstairs which is open until most days from 06.30 to 21.00 and has the most beautiful fresh bread and coffee etc. The apartment itself was very clean and had everything for us to enjoy our stay. There are large windows overlooking the mountains and residencial areas. There is a washer/dryer inside the apartment itself which wasn't mentioned in the ad so washing and drying clothes is no problem.
We were in walking distance to the malls and the parks and we could easily get a taxi from outside the building. The apartment is supposed to be for a max of 3 people, 1 of which would have to sleep on the sofa bed but we thought it was just right for the two of us. We would definately stay there again :)
