Hotel Patio Andaluz4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We staryed here for three nights and everything was perfect. The room was great, the breakfast was great, the service and staff was great, and, to top it off, the location was territic. We were in a two-story room and this was nice. The seating area was comfortable and the sleeping area was separate.
The hotel is located in the historical center of Quito, so you can start to explore the main sights in walking distance. The hotel is in a historical building with some kind of patios inside and lots of old pictures and furniture. The rooms are very spacios and have everything you need, though some might feel it is quite simple (I think for Latam quite good!). It was only a pitty I had no real window (directing only inside so no fresh air supply possible).The staff was really helpful with the luggage and any information needed and the breakfast buffett was excellent (stuffed with muesli, fruit, etc etc) - they even prepared it for us earlier when we had to leave for the airport, big plus and thank you!!
Our room was a two-level with a stair to the bedroom in a loft, plenty of room. Hard bed. Good bathroom. Beautiful property inside with courtyard in which a very good breakfast is served. Good service throughout. Perfect location for exploring Old Town.
My family and I (husband and 3 children: 14 year old twins and a 10 year old) are traveling in South America this summer -- Quito was our first stop from the US. We wanted to take a full day to visit historic Quito and the Equator. Our next stop is 8 nights in the Galapagos. We arrived very late from the US and just arrived at the hotel for sleep. The next day we toured Quito and went to the Equator museum (0 degrees). Here is my review of this hotel (both positives and negatives). Hotel Style This was a former Spanish house that was made into a hotel. What does that mean? The rooms (are up one level -- in the original uses of these types of houses the first floor is where the servants 'lived' and worked and the family would live upstairs). Today -- it means the bottom is the restaurant, store, reception, etc. This also means the hotel is very loud. You hear everything -- both inside the hotel and outside the hotel. Guests are respectful but it's hard for it to be really quiet. We felt bad arriving around midnight and getting our rooms so late. Rooms We had 2 rooms -- one for us and one for the kids. The adult room had a living area downstairs and then upstairs was the bedroom and bathroom. A spiral wood staircase that can be very slippery in socks -- be careful--is what gets you to your bed and bathroom. Also, one of the light switches for the bedroom area is upstairs and you could easily fall down the stairs with no light trying to turn it on. The rooms are nice and historical and very well kept. But, having the bathroom upstairs is a real pain -- not sure how to say that in a nicer way. We didn't suffer from altitude illness but if you do and then you have to deal with these stairs - it would really be a problem. If you have mobility issues at all this is not a hotel for you. We are all in great physical shape and even for us the bedroom stairs became aggravation. The kids room had a king bed downstairs, a single bed and then upstairs another double bed. Clearly, there is a lot of room and that made it very comfortable for everyone. However, the bathroom was upstairs again. If you have really young kids I would be worried about slips and falls. The bathrooms of both of the rooms were the same: small, shower (no tub), but well kept and nice. Bottom line: historically well kept rooms, beautiful, lots of room, but not for those with mobility of sues. Housekeeping This hotel is extremely clean and well maintained. It's beautiful in that sense. Staff Everyone was very nice and treated us very well. The staff is really top of the line. Breakfast There is a buffet breakfast that is fine. It's basic but will feed you well. There are fruits, cereals, breads/sweets, eggs, and a few Ecuadorian traditional foods. Today we had to leave at 5AM to catch our flight to the Galapagos and we were given a boxed breakfast which was nice. In a way I feel 'bad' giving this boutique hotel a 3/5 stars but there were too many negatives for us to give it a 4 or 5. HOWEVER, you are only one block from the plaza and this is a HUGE plus when you have one day to visit Quito (which is lovely). The equator 'area' is a good 40 minutes from the hotel. Also, the wifi didn't work well in the rooms -- however, we aren't on family vacation to be all that 'connected' to anyone but us.
Situated in the heart of Old Town, this hotel has wonderful service. Our room was two stories, with a bedroom on each story. The upper bedroom had a balcony that opened onto the central atrium. The only downside was that there was no outside window. Breakfast was also surprisingly expensive at $22 each. We ate it because we needed to leave for the airport, and it was good, just high priced. Discovered upon leaving that they actually offer oxygen for those suffering from altitude sickness. Had I known, I may have taken them up on the offer.
This old colonial-era house, re-purposed as a hotel, is quite a delightful place to stay. Comfortable with very nice decor. Located right in the middle of old Quito. Excellent buffet breakfast in the open courtyard. Our room had an additional upstairs loft with second queen-size bed and bath. Small veranda from there -- 3 stories up -- looked down on the courtyard. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. We only spent one night there before moving on; but I would have loved to have had time to stay longer.
We stayed for 2 nights in Quito prior to a Galapagos trip. The staff was friendly and very helpful, appeared to take pride in their beautiful boutique old-culture-feel hotel. The location is excellent for visiting and walking the old city. The breakfast buffet was fantastic - some great cultural influence made it even better to us, but a nice variety of options should satisfy almost anyone. Our room was clean and nice (other visitors we talked with had a townhouse setup with bathroom upstairs from the main bedroom; ours was a single floor layout with bathroom off of the very spacious room with high ceilings and beautiful old windows onto the courtyard). Great bar in the converted back courtyard and cellar area, and we were given complimentary drink coupons that we used during a happy hour for which they have gratis some cheese (good cheese), olives, plantain chips etc. Be aware that their is no elevator - the property is 3 stories and set around 2 skylit but enclosed courtyards, and the stairwells are beautifully set into the courtyards. The gift shop was nice and well stocked with a variety of local artwork and trinkets (not the lame airport kind). Exceptional value for the $, and overall a wonderful stay. Recommend to anyone for whom 2 flights of stairs are not a deal breaker (and there are bellboys for your luggage so no worries there).
The hotel itself is stunning, the room had everything we needed, the location was great, and the staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. I recommend this hotel without reservation or qualification.
Very wonderful Hotel with first class service and amenities. Old world charm in the heart of historic Quito. I would strongly recommend to others as it's central location makes it accessible to so many other great attractions
Provide complimentary umbrella, as we were walking the city during a rainy day this was a pleasant perk. Exceptional service. Very unique setting, old colonial building which has been modernized. Beautiful appointed, fresh flower. Nice atrium that let in a lot of light. Onsite restaurant we had breakfast and dinner (not included in base rate). Good quality and good service. Nice bar area, provided a complimentary “welcome drink” which was a type of fruity cocktail and the bartender made an excellent Canelazo. The on-site bar is located in the basement level adjoining the atrium which extends throughout the multi-story hotel. The talented singer/musician playing both guitar and pan flute during dinner, added to the Ecuadorian ambiance. Good wi-fi.
