                        If you are looking for a comfortable, safe, and clean place to drop your bags and lay your head, look no farther. It is in the historic part of Quito only a bus or taxi ride away from many of the sites. The night views from the windows were breathtaking and one of my favorite parts of the apartment.

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, tourists without a car.

                        This is a great apartment and a great value in the historic center of Quito. We were looking for a centrally located apartment that could accommodate a family of five comfortably (not an easy feat) for 11 days over the Christmas/New Year's holiday, and this apartment succeeded admirably. We found it to be exactly as advertised: well-located, secure, and attractive. The neighborhood may appear a bit rough at the edges to some (it is the old town, after all), but it is perfectly fine, with its own intrinsic charm, and offers all the basic amenities. It was actually the liveliest part of town to be in over the holidays. It is a short walk from the major scenic attractions of the center and right around the corner from the atmospheric nightlife street La Ronda. The views from the apartment and the rooftop terrace are stunning. The managers (who live and work next door) are friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I would recommend this apartment highly to anyone who wants to have an authentic experience of old Quito.

                        Having used VRBO for many of my stays throughout the USA , my friend and I were very happy staying at this wonderful reasonably priced apartment with a spectacular view of the city. We could walk to several of the Plazas, get what we needed close by and taxis were easily available to take you where you wanted to go and not expensive. This apartment in Old Town of Quito comes highly recommended by both of us.

                        Manager response: Thank you for your review. We try and improve the apartment each time I can get away from my beach house in Ballanita, Ecuador and visit Quito. I enjoy Colonial Quito and have watched the area improve over the six years I have owned the apartment. The museums, art galleries, fine restaurants and friendly people keep attracting me to Casa Ponton.

                        My husband and I, with our daughter and son-in-law, extended our stay to ten days because it was such a pleasant place to stay. It's on the third floor of a quiet, well-maintained apartment building, with an elevator. There is an open center courtyard which gives the building a very light and airy feeling. Modern appliances, plenty of hot water, friendly neighborhood tiendas. Francisco and Evith, who own a hotel and a corner store on the same block, are wonderful. Francisco is a fantastic tour guide, who can be hired for fascinating day trips. He and Evith are also available to give you good advice on managing your own excursions by bus, The most comfortable place we have stayed in South America.

                        This is a very nice apartment for the price. A couple of blocks off the beaten path but close enough so that you can walk to all the areas in Colonial Quito. The Manager, Francisco, is helpful and accommodating. He and his wife, Evith, own a small convenience store next door so you can get provisions if needed. There is a phone for local use. Also a fridge, washer/dryer, gas range, pasta maker & a George Foreman grill. If you are looking for luxury, stay in a hotel. If you are looking for comfortable, secure accommodation that is reasonably priced, this is the place to be.
