This is our own personal apartment, which we use for occasional visits to Quito and we endeavour to keep it in top condition. It is situated in a quiet part of the city away from the noise and pollution of the colonial centre, but within easy reach of both the old city and new parts of Quito including the Mariscal.
We are often booked, but please do ask about last minute bookings. We look forward to hearing from you.
