Hola. My time in Pablo's amazing apartment was wonderful. Pablo has taken the time to provide a great level of detail in his posting here which you should read because it accurately describes what you will have. A private yet secure entrance, a remarkable space to relax, a private bedroom with lots of storage. Check out the photos. On a rainy day in Quito you will enjoy siting at the desk or watching a movie on the big screen. The wifi is flawless and your phone calls to the US are free Less than a block away is the large grocery and all other conveniences including the express transit station (EcoVia Orellana). Pablo and his on site staff look after you impeccably. If I don't ask for something I get an email asking how things are going. He is used to greeting guests late into the night. I will just finish with security as I think Quito requires top notch security. This apartment is really really secure including the fact that all staff have been with Pablo 40+ years. So I would leave everything in the flat including cash and passport and credit cards and computer with no concerns.
I have greatly enjoyed a week at Pablo's beautiful apartment. It is exactly as on the pictures, and the location is great. Staying here really makes you feel home away from home. Pablo is a very interesting guy, and we discovered to have a lot in common when having drinks. Also, Pablo was so kind to stay up late for my arrival when my plane was delayed and I arrived after 1 A.M. More than recommended !
I was in Pablo's beautiful house more than a week. I enjoyed it very much.
1. it is very clean. The carpet is not only super clean, it feels also good on your feet.
2. the two rooms are super large. The bedroom has a huge matrimonial bed.
3. even in winter the rooms are warm, due to the carpet and the many books that keep the warmth all night.
4. in the bathroom and the kitchen you have hot water all day long
5. you have your own keys and own entrance. The apartment is like a Penthouse on top of the building.
6. there is not too much noise because it is a nice road. The next bigger street is about 500m away, so that you can sleep very good.
I enjoyed my stay very much.
Pablo was an excellent host, and the apartment is beautiful. He was available throughout our stay to answer all of our questions. I highly recommend staying here.
We could walk to various locations from the apartment and used the app Easy Taxi for rides from Pablo's to spots around Quito.
This place was amazing- spacious (actually huge), spotlessly clean, and beautifully furnished. Very large screen for viewing dvd's (supplied), free calls locally as well as to the U .S., and an extremely comfortable bed. Pablo and his associate Patricio went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Delightful people. The apartment is conveniently located in the newer part of town just a few minute's walk to the Marriott where we stayed the first night before a cruise. We'd choose this place over a fancy hotel in a heartbeat.
Pablo se comporta como un excelente anfitrión a pesar del poco tiempo que lo pude ver, solo a mi llegada. El ambiente está en muy buenas condiciones, es bastante independiente aún siendo parte de la casa que Pablo y su familia habitan. La zona es céntrica y de fácil acceso, igualmente cercana a vías principales. Mis horarios no me permitieron despedirme pero dejo constancia del buen estado y la atención de su dueño.
Pablo is a great host! His apartment is very fancy and clean. We enjoyed the homecinema and the spacy rooms. Pablo help us wherever he could and we felt like at home!
Pablo is the greatest person that I have met in a long time. He rescued me for one night, since my other host was not communicative. I was basically travelling for 12 hours and this loft, is just as it is described, and is ALL I needed to restore me in just 1 day. A sanctuary in the sky. Of course Pablo was most wonderful, ensuring that I was safe and had everything that I needed. He was very instrumental in assisting me with finding another apartment, and even drove me to a restaurant for lunch when I checked out. Thank You so much Pablo. I appreciated everything about my stay in the 'Artist's Loft'.
Pablo's loft in Quito is a beautiful spot. Lots of space and calm and a good location away from the traffic of Quito's centre. Pablo is a very welcoming and friendly host.
Everything was perfect. Our host was very attentive and accessible. Even made himself available to let us in at midnight! Apt was exactly as described and very comfortable. Looking forward to going back soon : )
Unfortunately I have not personally met with Pablo.
My son in law said that Pablo is very pleasant to talk to people. The apartment was left very clean upon departure.
I'll be glad to arrival Pablo again!
Un hóspede muy calmo y tranquilo, organizado de quien gostamos mucho de conocer y de quien creamos amistade. Sera alguien siempre bien venido a nuestra casa.
Pablo is a fascinating individual: kind and considerate! Awesome guest!
the guest has behaved very well, we hope to see him again soon
Pablo is such a gracious, generous, and thoughtful person that he makes for a perfect host. We have been friends for years, working and visiting together both in Quito and the U.S.
As a world-class photojournalist Pablo has tremendous experience as a traveler. As such, he knows how to help visitors get what they need whether it's suggestions on things to do or see, insider’s tips on the city’s shockingly high-quality restaurants, or simply directions to the Supermaxi grocery. Few people will have as much insight into Quito or Ecuador more broadly. Pablo’s beautiful apartment is the ideal refuge in the city and a perfect base for exploring the country.
Pablo is a brilliant photographer; probably the best of Ecuador. I have known him all my life, as he is a close family friend. His work has been a great influence in all of us and we have been lucky that over the years he has shared his experiences of photojournalism and traveling with us. I highly recommend him as a person and host.
Pablo is a uniquely warm and interesting person. He introduced me to Ecuador and Quito and I ended up spending four fascinating years in the country. As a good friend for over a decade, I have experienced Pablo's deep knowledge of his city and country (photographing for the National Geographic he has developed an intimate and honest approach to the Andes) and his fantastic hosting qualities (from lively meals with friends to long-stays in his house).
Pablo is an artist with exquisite taste- the family home is decorated with unique art pieces, from seventeen century icons to museum-quality modern photography. The house is very well located in Quito, easy to access yet situated in a quiet street. The studio is extremely bright and comfortable - modern, clean, and private.
Pablo offers the perfect combination of a beautiful place and an engaging host. Spending some days there will change your life.
I have the honor of knowing Pablo for more than 20 years and i would highly recommend his companion as guest and as host both. He will definitely make a difference in anyone's trip to Ecuador with great inside information; besides, both his places are beautiful and very well located.
