Hotels offers 5 conference rooms and a little GYM on top of its services. This is a traditional Hotel with a warm feeling and cosy but elegant rooms. Its excellent position and very good service make this Hotel a great choice for all type of travellers. The hotel is a modern 8 storey building. The hotel is perfectly located in the middle of modern Quito, one step from the best restaurants, banks, galleries, travel agencies and airline offices. 10 minutes away is historical downtown, the colonial Quito, with its narrow cobbled streets and monumental architecture.

When I asked my 17 yr old daughter whether she wanted to stay at a tried-and-true Holiday Inn Express or this more Ecuadorian-flavoured hotel, she responded that the Sebastian sounded good. We were VERY satisfied!!!The front desk staff always
served us with a smile and were attentive and helpful. They all spoke English (some better than others) and I tried to converse in my limited Spanish. No problems. The luggage porters spoke little English but by far made up for that with enthusiasm and helpfulness. Anytime we needed a taxi or a tour, this was quickly arranged. I recommend asking for [...] who are drivers for the hotel. [...] took us on a city tour ($10 per hr) and to Cotopaxi volcano ($70 round trip for 2 persons)and could speak English quite well.We stayed a total of 4 nights--broken up between visits to the Amazon and the Galapagos. Our room on the 7th floor was a bit `tired` but clean--noisy as it faced the main street. The rooms on the 6th (605) and the 5th (505) were nicer, had a little balcony and a better view--also quieter (it`s difficult to escape the sound of car alarms and sirens). They had a little table and chairs so you could eat room service meals or write a postcard. Bathrooms had a basket with a sewing kit, soap, shampoo and conditioner, shampoo cap--plus a toothbrush and paste was available upon request. The beds were comfortable and had warm comforters and blankets. The best part of The Sebastian, however, was the food in the restaurant. Free breakfast included in our room cost had made-to-order omelettes or scrambled eggs with fruit, cheese, breads and buns, juices, and lots of coffee con leche (meaning with hot milk)--yum. We ate at various times throughout the day/evening--no reservations--and the food was beyond great! I couldn't get over how every meal we had was so exceptional! We loved the potato soup with avacado, eggs, corn, and even leafs of lettuce. The pollo al gratin (chicken and cheese-covered toasted sandwich) still makes me drool to think of it. Desserts were yummy too. Serving staff were very professional. While sitting in the restaurant, we could people-watch through the large windows and see the daily comings-and-goings around the neighbourhood.While this hotel could not be graded as a five-star luxury hotel (like a Marriot etc) it makes up for that with personality, friendliness and service. Add to that, the huge bouquets of fresh roses and other flowers in the comfortable lobby, the accessibility of a business centre so we could print boarding passes, having our luggage tagged and stored (because we had weight limits for smaller planes and couldn't bring 2 large suitcases) while we went on tours for 4-5 days, I am pleased to recommend The Sebastian to anyone visiting Quito. We felt so at home here and plan to return.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Don't frantically search for nearby restaurants or arrange taxis to find a great meal--the best food is right in your hotel.
