Very nice way to visit Quito.

  • 5 of 5

I have learned that renting a vacation rental is usually a great way to stay in any city if your visit is longer than just a day. This particular apartment is spacious, clean, well appointed and the building is well run. My group would happily stay there again. By the way, the view is really nice from the terrace.

We would have liked to have a TV in the bedrooms in addition to the one in the master bedroom but that is probably asking too much.

Taxis were easy to get and the owner had posted phone numbers to make it easier. Maps of the area showing the near-by grocery stores and restraurants would have been nice. I only mention this as a suggestion.

The cleaning fee was a little pricey. The owners were very responsive and accomodating which makes up for the cleaning fee.

All in all, we were very happy with our stay.

Beautiful place to stay in Quuito

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this beautiful condo for two and a half months and I would say we really enjoyed how comfortable and well kept it is. The main features in this property are all the space available as well as all the accessories in the bedrooms and the kitchen to allow us to have a normal like home stay. The central location is ideal to find everything at a walking distance, including grocery stores and restaurants. Quito is a busy city and traffic in the area can be noisy, specially at night or early mornings, but this is something we got used to.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 10 days at this wonderful penthouse with 2 families with small children. It was just like the pictures, large, modern, clean and very comfortable. It is close to everything and convenient if you don't have a car. We were in quito to see some doctors at hospitals voz Andes and metropolitano, both 10-15 mins in taxi. Because of our appointments and then the need for surgery we needed to extend our stay which was no problem for Ermel. We highly recommend the apartment if visiting Quito.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this penthouse was great! The location is one of the best parts. Close to everything, yet on a more quiet street. The penthouse was clean, spacious, and safe. The kitchen had everything we needed and made it easy to make meals. The patio is a huge plus- amazing to be able to look at over the city and see the mountains. The owners were great and very nice. We would definitely stay here on our next trip to Quito!
