Beautiful apartment in the most beautiful and safest part of Quito. All exquisite and tastefully developed. Helpful, likeable host. In the kitchen spices, coffee, tea etc. Refrigerator well filled. Fruit, chips and wine on the table. And there's even a kind of open fireplace as heating. And even if Quito is at the equator ... You need it at an altitude of almost 3,000m in the evening. The most beautiful accommodation in Colombia and Ecuador so far.
A very great tourist spot
