You will love this place first because everything in your room has been carefully chosen to be of the best quality and comfort. I like only 100% cotton sheets, duck feathers duvets (that are warm enough for Quito but not as heavy as wood covers), high quality towels. Full bed ideal for couples. Private bathroom. Everything is white, clear and clean. The room has plenty of sunlight at all the times of the day and still I have put a double system of curtains so you will not be seen from the outside if you want to let the light come in and you can close the blackout curtains if you want a long sleep even late in the morning. High speed internet wifi included. Also you will love to share very large social spaces as the kitchen, the living room and the dinning room with only two more people who are generally between 25 and 40 years old. The kitchen fully equipped will make you feel as if you where at home making your favorite dishes. Large living room great for sharing a nice evening with friends. Cleaning once a weak included. Finally, you will love the atmosphere in the whole building. There are other two apartments with the same modality so it is around 9 people sharing and supporting each other in the building. My experience is that you all make good friendships and share other expenses and tasks (like traveling together or going out). The terrace equipped with hammocks, a bbq place and washing and drying machines becomes a great space for relax and getting along all together. Great for couples and travelers of long and short time stay. Places of interest: The building is located in the best place of Quito. You will be located at a walking distance to the old historic downtown Quito, only two blocks away from the artistic and cultural neighborhood of La Floresta (which has an independent cinema, plenty of cafes and artists shops and an organic market every friday) and two blocks away from the Plaza Foch, a great place to go out for a drink or to dance. It has a large supermarket just crossing the street from the building. You will be at 5 minutes from the free public service of bicycles and the cycle route. At 5 minutes of the House of the Culture and from most of the Universities (if what you like is intellectual life). You are at 5 minutes walking of the Ecovia, a public service with its own lane, to reach even far north or far south Quito along the Av. Y6 de Diciembre. Summarizing, it is the best location in town if you like to reach the different places by walking, cycling or using public transportation and still very safe and quite since it is not in the middle of noisy neighborhoods.
