We are a couple from Germany which stayed a few weeks in Quito in the time period March-July 2015. When we arrived we were searching for an apartment in a nice area, independent, secure and spacey which allows us to settle down a little bit and use it as a base for excursions into the fantastic andean landscape in the surroundings of the capital. Luckily we found this wonderful place, situated in the heart of Quito. Ruth welcomed us very warm (with flowers) and heartly and did everything to make our stay as convenient as possible. She is a wonderful person who made us not just feel like guests, she treated us much more like friends or family members. With Regards to the apartment (we stayed in the Cozy III) , we loved the location in a safe neighbourhood very close to the parque Carolina which can be considered a little oasis in the heart of Quito, offering sports and recreational activities. Moreover you find all facilities to cover your daily needs closeby (various supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, bars, little shops etc). The place is very well connected to the public transport, just around the corner is a bus station which allows you to reach any part of the city, fast, efficiently and cheap ($0.25).
The apartment is nicely furnished and well equipped, everything is working perfectly and the facilities are new (cable TV, DVD player, microwave, oven, blender, fridge etc). The bed is large and comfortable, big shared bathroom and on the terrace you can enjoy your coffee while looking at the majestic Cotopaxi. Furthermore the house is secured by an alarm system, the street is quiet (no noise at all in the night), the room has a very good climate (never to cold or hot) and it´s clean (regularely a cleaning person shows up). Fresh towels and linen are provided also. Also to mention that the WiFi Internet connection is good to stay connected with the world. All in all a very recommendable place which we´ll keep in our good memories and for sure it wasn´t the last time as we´ll visit again this beautiful mega-diverse country in the future.
