Rio Amazonas Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Pros: As a solo female traveler I need to feel safe above all else. Next I prefer a clean space. Finally, I like a central location that is easy to go on excursions from. This hotel met all criteria. The bonus was 24 hour room service and an extra friendly staff. Enough staff knew enough English to make a translator unnecessary. Cons: unfortunately while the location is very centrally located and was only a few blocks from one of the top pick up locales for day trips (to Mindo, Papallacta, Quilotoa, etc), the area unfortunately is a bit run-down and polluted. Also, the next door restaurant leaves their bread and coffee out overnight (as it's 24 hours). While nice in theory, this inevitably creates stale bread and coagulated milk (it's heated). However if you come to breakfast (included in the price of the room!) after 6ish everything including the bread, coffee and fruit is fresh and very yummy. Finally, I must add that the staff was extremely helpful when my luggage was stuck in Miami. They continually called the airline and the airport. For budget and solo travelers, I highly recommend this hotel.

I loved this hotel. I stayed here before I moved to Quito. Rooms are spacious, breakfast was good and I had a great view of the volcano. It is pretty close to the La Mariscal area and a few hundred meters from the Central Park. I would stay here again!

Staying in the Mariscal area promises to give you plenty of options for fun, but it also means a lot of noise in the early morning hours. This hotel is in a safe area but since it's nearby several clubs/bars I had trouble sleeping. Thankfully the Australian tennis championship was taking place so I had things to do when I was woken up at 3am. But be prepared for taxis or people yelling at these hours. On the plus side, the morning breakfast opened around 5am. The hotel was a short 3 minute walk to the Magic Bean Restaurant if you're taking any day trips with local tour companies - which I highly recommend! And with a 10 minute walk, you're at the Mercado Artesanal where you can buy some beautiful ponchos, scarves and other souvenirs. I only wish this hotel offered a gym and a heater since it does get cold in Quito in the evenings. But nevertheless, the staff were very supportive and friendly during my first visit to Quito.

The hotel is very located, the staff is very kind and the restaurant is good. I think that there are no enough electrical outlets, considering the number of devices currently. The restroom is appropriate.

We really enjoyed our stay. First class hotel at a third class price. Centrally located, nicely appointed room, great service, sumptuous free breakfast- what more can you ask for. We felt very secure exploring the Ecuadoran countryside knowing that we would return to such a comfortable room.

is a corporative hotel so dont expect a 5 star service how ever rooms are very nice and clean, breakfast is good and a plus is they serve from 5 am, also they have 24 hour restaurant service, is well located in the center of Quito main mariscal area

Everyone was extremely helpful and professional and there was always someone on duty that spoke English. Staff helped to book tours and gave great tips about where to go. The rooms were very clean and nice. Also, the food at the restaurant was very good.

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff was very helpful and the service in the resteraunt was excellent. We also liked the central location of the hotel. Easy to walk to many places. Travel to further places was easy by taxi.

The hotel is in a central area close to entertainment areas the lodge is amazing luxury rooms and the attention and perfect food The beds are spacious and it is close to the foch square tourist center

The Rio Amazonas is a well run, clean, comfortable hotel. The bed is comfy, the sheets smooth and the shower strong. My room had a lovely view of the city. My only complaint is some street noise on occasion, something the hotel really can't do anything about.
