One of our clients' most frequently asked questions
Do you have any hotel recommendations for Quito?
Due to the timing of flights from Quito to Galapagos, most international travellers will need to stay in Quito on arrival and again before departure. Here are a few Quito hotels we recommend - our team always use these before and after our regular visits to Galapagos to check on the Galapatours fleet!
Hip location: Hotel Cayman. This Quito hotel is located in the heart of the hip Mariscal district in the south of Quito. Here you're right in the heart of the action, with plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs within walking distance. It is also a great base from which to explore the rest of the city. Our tip: use the $2 taxis to explore further afield. The area is very safe.
Historic Centre: Illa Experience Hotel. Located in Quito, the Illa Experience Hotel is 200 metres from the Bolivar Theatre and offers facilities such as a spa and wellness centre. Featuring a 24-hour front desk, this property also offers a restaurant. Free WiFi is available. All rooms at the hotel feature a flat-screen TV with cable channels. The rooms come with a private bathroom with free toiletries. There is a seating area. Please note that Quito's city centre can be dangerous at night. We don't recommend exploring alone at night.
Out of town: La Palma Boutique Hotel. La Palma Polo Boutique Hotel is located 11 miles from downtown Quito and 20 minutes from Mariscal Sucre Airport. The hotel has 16 luxurious and spacious rooms, all surrounded by large windows with a privileged view of the lake or the polo field. All rooms have a kitchenette, terrace, spacious bathroom and various activities for our guests (horse riding, kayaking, various sports, pools and spa). The area is very safe.
