Hotel Los Alpes
The Hotel Los Alpes is aptly named for its views of the mountains surrounding Quito, and its cultural blend of the Alps mountain range in Italy and the Andes in Ecuador. Claudio Facchinei and his family present the best of both worlds in their family-run hotel renovated from a colonial residence on the edge of the city's historic center in the safe district of La Mariscal.
Away from the busy city, the hotel feels more like a home and comprises 24 large rooms including some detached cabin-like accommodations. Each room is uniquely decorated and furnished for a cozy atmosphere. Rooms may include handcrafted furniture, balconies or city views. All rooms feature cable programming including English-language channels and free wireless hotel-wide broadband for those who have their own computer.
Known for their warm customer service for over 20 years, the Facchinei family provides a wide range of amenities: a computer suite with Internet access for fees similar to local Internet cafes, a bar and lounge with cable television and a fireplace lit daily, free and secure storage for valuable items in reception, free luggage storage for guests who will temporarily leave the city, a restaurant and a sun balcony for relaxing with a view.

The hotel is located half a block away from the American embassy in Quito and another half block away from the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador, the oldest private university in the country. Around the corner from the hotel is the closest local bus stop with buses that can take guests to the historic center of Quito, which can also be reached by walking.
Food & Beverage
Breakfast is included in the rate and consists of eggs cooked as desired, fruit, cereal, toast and homemade jam. For breakfast beverages, guests have the choice of fresh fruit juice, coffee or tea. At night, the hotel bar in the communal lounge is where guests can enjoy drinks by a real log fire. An Italian-themed restaurant on site also serves Italian meals in the evenings.
How To Get There
To get to the hotel from the Galo Plaza Ecovía bus station, a central bus line that runs along the east of Quito, take the exit toward Francisco Robles St. and walk southeast along the street. Turn right when you reach Jose Luis Tamayo St. and walk for half a block to find the hotel.
