|Subject: Re: Quito, Ecuador|
We stayed at Cafe Cultura for 3 days at the beginning of March 2004. It was the start of a one month trip to Ecuador, Galapagos and Panama. Cafe Cultura was very lovely. Very nice public areas (with fireplace going!), excellent restaurant, lovely rooms (we paid $80 for a suite which included breakfast) and very helpful front desk. CC is located just off Amazonas so it is very convenient. CC is surrounded by a wall and there is always someone watching the entry so only those staying at CC or those going to the small restaurant are permitted in. We very much liked it and would stay there again. Hope this helps.
You'll love the Galapagos! Jane, Boca Raton
