Everything. Nice room and bath, great breakfast, interesting guests, good English spoken, amazing manager, Pablo, helped me find a guide for a day in Colonial Quito and helped plan activities for other days. Shared lots of information about keeping safe, current events, markets, restaurant area, which taxis to use-look for orange license plate, tipping, and much more.
Can not think of anything I didn't like. It is wonderful here.
There is a lot to love about La Rabida but the most important is the staff. The reception staff is unfailingly helpful and friendly with our unending questions. The breakfast is served with your choice of eggs in the morning. We had to leave very early for a flight on our last night and they provided a complete boxed meal for us to take to the airport in lieu of breakfast. We used La Rabida as our Quito base while travelling elsewhere in Ecuador. The staff provided luggage storage as needed between visits and overnight laundry service on two occasions. Our larger courtyard room (#8) was excellent. The room had hot water with no issues provided we gave it a few moments to warm up. The smaller room (#4) was adequate although hot water was a little more problematic. This is a perfect place for people who want to try to connect with the local people and culture!
It is currently winter time in Quito with temperatures around 8-12 degrees Celsius in the morning, and the hotel room DOES NOT HAVE A WORKING WATER HEATER. It took me 45 minutes to finish a quick shower that was supposed to take no more than 10 minutes because the hot water was not working. In the middle of my shower there would be hot water for a few seconds and then it would completely shut off for up to three to four minutes. This was a terrible terrible inconvenience since I am already wet, unclothed and cannot leave the room to resolve the situation. I had to walk out into my cold room without any heating on while cold and wet to try to ask front desk to fix the problem. THE PROBLEM STILL PERSISTED AFTER THE HOTEL STAFF RESTARTED THE HEATER. I have never had a more frustrating experience at a hotel this is absolutely unacceptable for a three star hotel. Calvin
I liked the cleaningness, staff and availability, the lobby everything. I liked the home like environment.
wall paper in the room needs to be changed.
We stayed here for 5 days and it was a great experience! Pablo and his coworkers are super friendly and helpful. They gave us lots of useful suggestions on our trip. The hotel is located in the middle of the city, it’s convenient to go anywhere. There are lots of restaurants nearby. The room is very clean and they have very nice breakfast also. Highly recommended!
