This is my second review of Gerardo & Irene's place, because I stayed there twice during my more than three week visit to Ecuador. I guess the fact that I chose to return there at the end of my time in Ecuador, speaks for itself. I really liked their beautiful home with its gorgeous views, located in a very nice area of Quito. Nice breakfasts too. Gerardo & Irene are gracious hosts and if asked, offer helpful suggestions for getting around. I think it's worth mentioning that they have an excellent Internet connection in their home!!! Also, it is very easy to walk from their house to the delightful and rather extensive green space known as La Carolina Park. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Gerardo & Irene's place is very comfortable and has gorgeous views actually! When I first arrived at the Quito Airport they had a taxi driver waiting for me (holding a paper with my name on it) which facilitated my getting to their place the first time. I also really appreciated Gerardo's willingness to help me with all kinds of questions which I had. I was so comfortable there, in fact, that I will be returning to stay there at the end of my Ecuador trip.

The photos and description are as stated (although there was no hairdryer that I found.) Be prepared to get in shape, unless you take a taxi to the house; the walk is up a steep hill (but with incredible views.) It's a nice neighborhood with a number of restaurants and craft beer pubs within walking distance. The Parque Guangüitagua is just minutes away and has all kinds of trails for running, walking and cycling. It's not far from the Guayasamín museum. Bring earplugs because outside noises can carry (Saturday night parties, barking dogs) and maybe a sleep mask (the sun comes up at 6:00 and it's hard to sleep late.) Breakfast is at 8:30; if you're an early riser they will leave you something to take with you. My flight arrived very late at night; Gerardo graciously met me and got me settled in. I highly recommend their place.

Gerardo and Irene are very nice! Their employee, Christina, keeps the rooms very clean. It gets very cold at night and in the mornings. I had to get another blanket during one of my nights there. There is a lot of light and noise from the steet below so I highly recommend a sleep mask and ear plugs. Make sure you know where you are going because my taxi driver was confused and dropped me off several blocks away. I had to carry all of my luggage uphill several blocks. The shower had the best water pressure I have seen since being in Ecuador!

Response from Gerardo E Irene:
Dear Tiffany, we are located in a residencial area without noise outside, or extreme noise in order you can not sleep.... Probably you are extreme sensitive to the "noise and light". Quito now is in winter that is the reason all of us have cold during the days and nights... Please, we recomend you take the note about the address exactly in order the taxi driver can know where you are going....
