Penthouse Gem

  • 5 of 5

Three couples comfortably enjoyed this penthouse gem. It was centrally located and near a Marriott and Hilton hotel. We took advantage of two Hop on Hop off open bus tours during our stay and this tour was easily caught at the nearby Hilton Hotel. The condo was very clean and well stocked with towels, sugar, spices, tea etc. Although we shopped of course at a nearby grocery store during our five night stay. The use of the washer/dryer was great and they provided a phone with a direct line to the USA. We felt very safe coming and going from this apartment, even after dark. We all feel comfortable giving it our highest recommendation!

Convenient, comfortable and safe

  • 5 of 5

After two days of difficult travel, it was a relief to arrive at this beautiful apartment. It is located very conveniently near a large grocery and a within easy travel of many areas of interest. We had a lovely view of the city from our rooftop terrace. We were provided with coffee and milk as well as breakfast items for our first morning in Quito. Having arrived very late due to airline delays, this was particularly appreciated. Jorge, the apartment manager, helped us arrange transportation for our day excursions outside the city. He was so very helpful and friendly, even getting up at 5 a.m. to make sure we didn't miss our van to Mindo, and calling a cab to get us to the airport. All around, a wonderful experience.
