La Floresta is the contemporary bohemian zone in Quito. Filmmakers, painters, actors and musicians live in this neighborhood with antique houses, located east of La Mariscal. In here, many places of cultural interest –indie film movie theatres, restaurants, TV and film production companies, art galleries, and craft stores- share their space with houses, universities, hotels, squares and parks. La Floresta is also a place for sports and entertainment. The Rumiñahui Coliseum is located here, which is not only a sports and training center, but also where some of the largest concerts in Quito take place. Gastronomy is one of this sector's specialties. La Floresta Market provides to the city's most sophisticated restaurants, with products like tamarillos, naranjillas, cherimoyas, papayas, and golden berries, among others. Typical food restaurants, Chinese, Italian, Peruvian, and fusion, line up in La Floresta's streets, offering the finest menus and vibrant atmospheres. Plus, in the afternoons, the Vicentina Square turns into a popular gastronomic fair. If you drop by, make sure you try tripa mishqui.
The apartments are in immaculate condition. The building is quiet. No parties and smoking is allowed.
This place was cute and clean. My friend and I had stayed in a 5 star hotel a few days with the travel group we traveled with prior to coming to this place and we were so happy to leave it and stay in this VRBO. There are a lot of great places to eat in this neighborhood. The place is clean and well stocked. The only issue we were concerned about was the dog behind the apartment that barked during the day at times but by evening he wasn't barking. The beds were comfortable and I would definitely go back and stay in this place again if I ever went to Quito.
We enjoyed our stay although the unit was very cold in January. After two days we found the portable heating unit which made a big difference. There is a TV in each bedroom and not the living area so if you watch it you have to lie in bed. Not a big issue.
For the four of us- we were thrilled to be greeted by white sheets, fluffy pillows and two bathrooms and bedrooms!
Location was great- near the Super Marche and many restaurants. Would do it all again!
David took very good care of us. This is a wonderful apartment located near restaurants and with taxis close at hand. If you go out the front door, turn right, walk down to Isabella Catholic street and then turn left and walk down the hill, there are plenty of restaurants close at hand. The apartment is close to the Swissotel, which is where you can pick up tours of the city. Taxi fares to city attractions are inexpensive ($2 to $5) and taxis go by the apartment very frequently. The washer and dryer mean that you can clean your clothing and the fully equipped kitchen makes it easy to make a meal. The WIFI is faster than our home in Texas.
David's place was just perfect for the three of us. We were fortunate to get it at very short notice when our arranged accomodation cancelled on us less than a day before we were to arrive in Quito. David was prompt in answering emails and provided us with his phone number if there were problems-which there were none.
We arrived fairly late, but the 24 hr security was there and were terrific at helping us get our stuff into his place. Two comfortable double beds and most importantly, comfortable pillows-not a block of hard foam that most places provide.
Cabs were really easy to get right outside the apartment and are very inexpensive in Quito-just make sure they use the meter.
We found a couple of excellent restaurants within walking distance. La Gloria had outstanding seafood and service, likely in the top 5 of my all-time best meals. They do not have a wine license but there is a wine store on the premises where you can buy a bottle and they will open it for you. Or, you can just bring a bottle with you and there is no corkage.
The second is called Urko and it is more of a tapas style place, although you can get full meals there. We sat at the bar and watched the chefs cooking and had a wonderful meal. Both of these places are expensive by Quito standards, but really good value and excellent food.
I would not hesitate to stay at David's place if I return to Quito.
Everything you see in the photos are there.The apartment is small,modern,comfortable and classy.My family enjoyed every inch of space,the ambience made the whole place feel more than a vacation home.I enjoyed the location,the restaurants and the help by the security guards at the condo; they were all so very nice,especially the older guy (sorry I never got his name).David the owner was exceptional,he made sure that my time in Ecuador was well spent by providing updated information and making sure that all my questions/concerns were answered promptly.I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to get closer to Quito life but in a safe and clean environment.I can go on and on but I rather think about planning my next trip back!
