PERSONAL TRANSPORT AIRPORT-APARTMENT: 30 DOLLARS
Depending on availability.
If you are coming from the airport, a taxi will charge you between 25 and 30 dollars to the apartment building. (This is advisable if you want to ensure security, or to save time, or if there are 2 people or more in your group.)
Another way of getting here is by using the airport's "AEROSERVICIOS" shuttle service, which takes you to the city for a cost of 8 dollars per person, and from there you can take a taxi to the building where the apartment is located, which will cost you about 5 or 6 dollars. Here is the link:
The cheapest way to get from the airport to the apartment is by taking the public buses that leave from outside the airport, and which cost less than 2 dollars (note: these do not run at night). These leave you in the city in the "ECOVA" bus terminal, from where you take this line's buses for 25 cents. You want to get off the bus at the stop in Calle Cristobal Coln (ask for the La Coln bus stop) which is one of the streets leading to the building. If you want you can take a taxi from there that will cost you less than 2 dollars, asking for Avenida 12 de Octubre (note: the avenue is uphill), or if you don't have a lot of luggage you could easily walk up to the apartment (if you arrive at night or early in the morning, I advise you to take a taxi).
If you are going to hire a car from the airport, make a note of the location and address of the apartment so you know how to get here.
The apartment building has 1 parking lot. The time it takes to drive from the airport to the city varies depending on your time of arrival. During the day there are many rush hour periods, and you can be delayed by between 30 minutes and up to more than an hour. At night and in the very early morning it is much quicker.
You should come into the city via the Guayasamin tunnel. Do this by following the route Airport-Tumbaco-Cumbaya-Quito, without turning off at any time. As a point of reference, to check that you are going the right way, before the tunnel there is a toll station (Cost: 40 cents)
Leaving the tunnel you come to a traffic circle (Plaza Argentina), which you go around and then exit onto Avenida Diego de Almagro,
Follow Avenida Diego de Almagro to Avenida Francisco de Orellana.
Take Avenida Francisco de Orellana. Keep to the left and continue up to the traffic circle on Avenida 12 de Octubre.
From the traffic circle, on Avenida 12 de Octubre (the avenue in which the department is located) you turn right and the third building is called "TORRES BOREAL" (the apartment building).
Once you get there, I'll either be waiting for you myself or there will be another person to welcome you and explain how the apartment building operates etc.
