I would indeed recommend this bright, clean, well-maintained apartment to a friend, relative or anyone else. We spent five very pleasant days in it during a recent visit to Quito. Lorena (the owner) was an attentive, very helpful host with useful tips for traveling through the city and learning about its many attractions. Also, her husband (Roberto), a seasoned tourist guide like Lorena, was an excellent chaperone for us outside the city to the mountains. Not surprisingly, they made our stay in the apartment and visit to Quito a smooth and memorable one.
