Guestbook comments from the manager

Bel appartement Tres cosy EN Plein Coeur DE Quito

Left on 11/01/2012 for a stay in September 2012

Séjour d'une semaine dans ce charmant appartement tres chaleureux situé dans un quartier trés arboré jalonné de nombreux restaurants, bars, hôtels, et agréable place investie par les terrasses de cafés branchés de la ville.

Cet appartement au charme incontestable, aux couleurs du Sud et doté de tout le confort que l'on puisse espérer, du lit King Size à la cheminée écran leds (agréable pour les nuits parfois fraîches ) nous a parfaitement convenu.

C'était une première expérience de ce type dans une capitale, mais quel plaisir nous y reviendrons trés certainement lors d'un prochain séjour !

An enjoyable stay in Quito

  • 5 of 5

This lovely suite made my stay in Quito a true pleasure, thanks to it's perfect location, it allowed me quick access to many interesting parts of town. It was always nice to come back to a cozy and confortable place that felt like home to me. The suite has a enchanting atmosphere and I felt safe and totally at ease staying there, the music library is excellent as well !

The neighbourhood has many restaurants, shops and a few blocks away the mall Multicentro, it made everything easier,

I recommend this suite as it's as it says, a charming place to make your stay in Quito as enjoyable as possible

Exactly as we thought it was !

  • 5 of 5

It hasn't been so easy to find what we really wanted ! At the begining I reserved 2 weeks in a beautifull charming hotel in the very heart of touristic Quito, very well located and above all mentioned in all the guides as one of best for his location , decoration etc... Unfortunetly we couldn't find any rooms available for the period ! What a deception ! That's why I enter the vrbo.com website and what has been my surprise to find a charming flat very well looking and very similar to Antinea's rooms. After contacting the owner, Cathy, I discover she has been the owner of this charming hotel, and has been the one who decorated and managed it during a long time and now as for her frequent journeys to Tahiti and France, she rent the suite where she is living when in Quito !! It's has been a lovely stay in our cocoon and we enjoyed every moment in it . Even, didn't need to rent a car, since with had cab and buses just down the condo which is very secured and two streets away from the hotel we wanted to be . No regret at all !! It has been fantastic and above all very secured . We enjoyed very much our moments spent in the multitude of coffees and restaurants all around the flat , or our walking to museums, Quito colonial centre and so on . We were in the best place to visit Quito as we did . Internet in the flat helped us very much to be in touch with our family and we did enjoyed very much all the english books you leave Cathy for your guest . Thank you so much for your kindeness ! I ecommend it to every persons who want to be safe, in a cosy and warm apartment, and surrounded by all the touristics activities .

Enchanting stay at your suite

  • 5 of 5

After 3 weeks in this lovely and charming suite I can only thank you Cathy for the good taste you put in the decoration and above all your help in all I need during my stay. It's wonderful to go out of the condo and find everything I need all around it, shops, restaurants, cafes, markets, museums etc... without having to take a cab . I will definitively recommend it to my friends who have planned to study spanish in this lovely country since it's very well located, near most of the spanish language schools.

Un appartement idéal pour découvrir Quito

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes restés 3 nuits dans La Suite Almagro et cela a été un total plaisir.

Tout d'abord, les bus situés à 5min nous emmènent directement et rapidement en centre ville et au centre historique.

Le Jardin Botanique est à 20 min à pied, par des rues avec de larges trottoirs.

Un grand supermarché est accessible à pieds et retour en bus très facile, si nécessaire.

Une boulangerie se trouve en face de l'immeuble.

L'appartement est situé dans un immeuble totalement sécurisé par la présence d'un gardien 24h/24 et une carte magnétique est nécessaire pour accéder aux étages.

Le parking en sous-sol est également très sécurisé.

Nous n'avons eu aucune sensation d'insécurité dans ce quartier malgré nos rentrées tardives.

A notre arrivée, Veronica, qui remplace la propriétaire Catherine en cas d'absence, nous attendait en bas de l'immeuble.

Elle a su répondre à toutes nos questions avec professionnalisme, sourires et gentillesse.

L'appartement est irréprochable au niveau propreté.

La décoration est choisie avec beaucoup de goût que nous avons bien aimé, cela donne un appartement très chaleureux où nous avons beaucoup apprécié : la cheminée électrique, la douche à jets, la télé avec beaucoup de chaînes, le confort de la literie et un Wifi très rapide.

La cuisine est très bien équipée : assiettes, instruments de cuisine, frigo+ petit-congel ainsi que tout le nécessaire pour vivre indépendamment dans cet appartement et préparer ainsi tous nos repas sans problème, bien que de nombreux restaurants soient à proximité, c'était notre choix, de profiter pleinement de ce bel appartement.

L'immeuble est très calme, l'appartement ne donne pas directement sur la rue , mais sur le côté piscine.

Au retour, Veronica nous a proposé le service d'un taxi qui pour le même prix qu'un taxi hélé dans la rue, nous a amenés à l'aéroport, sans que l'on ai à s'en préoccuper.

Si nous devions revenir sur Quito, nous n'hésiterons pas et reviendrons directement chez Catherine.
