Hostal El Parque Tababela: Comfortable accommodation close to the airport in Quito
For those traveling to or from Quito, we recently stayed at Hostal El Parque Tababela, a great option when arriving late or having an early flight leaving from Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito. A hostel with comfortable rooms and friendly customer service at affordable prices.
We felt comfortable and were friendly and greeted by David once we arrived at the Hostal. He helped with the suitcases and made sure we felt at home. The staff was extremely helpful, they coordinated transportation to and from the airport before arrival. The flight arrived late and the lady taxi driver called ahead when asked if there was food served late at night.
The commitment to delivering quality service was palpable from early on. Five minutes after arrival we were presented with a simple but tasty meal. Rice, chifles and milanesa de pollo, including coffee and tea, for a very good price.
We arrived late and had an early flight the next morning, so it was wonderful to find a place that offers comfortable rooms, just minutes away from the airport.
About the Hostal
The Hostal´s location in a quiet area (apart from the playing frogs at night), with no car traffic outside, makes it ideal to enjoy a good night’s sleep.
In addition, just a short 10 minute drive and you are at the airport, making it an extremely convenient option for travelers wanting to stay near Mariscal Sucre International Airport.
In the morning, guests can enjoy a simple breakfast which is included with the booking.
Furthermore, for us having a late arrival and an early departure, it was wonderful to find extremely helpful staff that helped us with booking a taxi.
I had a spacious room (Higo) for three guests (1+2). It was a bit cold but had a comfortable mattress and a warm duvet.
The commitment to energy saving and being eco-friendly shows in different ways at Hostal el Parque Tababela. The showers in each room are heated with solar panels and there is a reminder for guests to turn off the lights in the room. Another great feature of the rooms is that all of them have a huge closet, perfect for storage. There is a Flatscreen TV of a good size with a Satelite Cable TV and plenty of power sockets available.
Guests staying at the hostel can enjoy additional amenities, such as free wifi measured to around a decent 5MB download speed (only around 0,5MB upload).
The spacious common area invites guests to relax while enjoying a nice cup of tea, complimentary on the house.
In addition, it is a great place to wait for a ride to the airport.
The lovely garden and nice open area with a covered path invites guests to slow down and relax on their way to the rooms.
Spend a peaceful night at Hostal El Parque Tababela, just 10 minutes from the airport in Quito. The Hostal has spacious rooms with comfortable beds, a garden bursting with colors, and very friendly, helpful staff.
