      Thanks for the tips! I visited Quito this past April and really enjoyed it. I stayed in the old town area. While not much at night (but nothing a taxi ride could solve) wanted to stay somewhere different. I will check out these places!

      Wandering Tumbleweed recommended Cafe Cultura
      Cafe Cultura has a great central location. It's a small boutique property in the heart of the old town. If you are looking for something off the beaten track this is a great option to consider. It can ... read more
      be noisy, and it doesn't compare to a big chain hotel, so if you go with the right expectation you'll be just fine.

      Hi Tamara,

      There are actually not many nice hotels in the old city. Most people stay mid-town, near the Mariscal District, and travel to the old town in the daytime to see the sights. A lot of the old palaces were converted into poor housing in the mid 20th Century, bringing the quality of the area down and a little dangerous at night. I'm not sure if this counts as mid range - as opposed to high - but the Cafe Cultura is a lovely boutique hotel right in the heart of El Mariscal, and on the side of the tourist district closest to the old city. Its a fantastic spot that merges luxurious comforts with local charm.

      Wandering Tumbleweed recommended Hotel Patio Andaluz
      I like the Patio Andaluz as a good option near the old town. I like the location and Colonial style and it is still affordable. Be careful venturing out on your own in Quito and leave your valuables ... read more

      Arlo Hemphill recommended Hilton Colon Quito
      So, the Hilton Colon is less charming than my last suggestion, but it's in the same part of town and is pretty much the nicest hotel you can get this close to the old city. The Colon is a bit of an ... read more
      older hotel, so its seen better days. However, because of this, it should be less expensive than the newer Marriott and Sheraton options.
