Wow, this was a real find. It’s not every day that one can get a room in an actual museum. This quaint hotel is based on a Quito side street and is managed by a very pleasant and helpful team. One can wander through the hotel and peruse a number of mostly colonial art objects while classical music plays on... More

Small, exquisitely appointed, charming boutique hotel in the Historic District. A short walk to the Plaza Grande, the delightful old square which is filled with people-watching opportunities, particularly on the weekends. Marvelous street views from the balcony of our suite with two large rooms and a bath with a view across the tile roof of the statue of the Virgin... More

Our review would follow along with what others say, that the hotel is a museum. One could take all day just looking at all the antiques, portraits, and wall paintings. The staff were uniformly wonderful. If one wants to read or just relax in silence, there are several little corners available. Breakfast was a bit uncoordinated but not enough to... More

We stayed here two nights in March. The ambiance of the entire boutique is pleasant, our room was most comfortable, our hosts and their staff were always helpful, the breakfasts were varied and delicious, and the hotel itself is only a 5-10 minute stroll to the old town, its churches and museums. We truly enjoyed ourselves and we will return.

We stayed here for three nights in early February. This is a small boutique hotel formed from a former mansion, containing six rooms, a dining room (currently for breakfast only), a floor devoted to quiet lounging. Three rooms are located on the second and third floors, with the fourth floor serving as the owner's residence. There is no elevator. We... More

This hotel is truly unique, and guests who stay here are lucky to be a part of such a special place. The hotel is unlike many others, boasting a restaurant, an art gallery and an antique store (which is impeccably curated). The staff is super accommodating, and opened the antique store for us at an off hour just to let... More

We stayed here for two nights in January, and can only confirm all the positive comments from previous reviewers. It did feel more like we were staying in a bed and breakfast, partly because this boutique hotel occupies a home that was built in the 1700's, and so the actually rooms are all individual, very large, and filled with antiques,...

great place, full of character and amazing staff! Very nice, smiling, helpful people - a big hug to Cris! The location is perfect as it is just in the heart of the city centre. Probably the breakfast could be a little bit richer but it is freshly made with lovely juices. Highly recommended place

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Casa San Marcos, a house of treasures Publicado el 10/Noviembre/2011 | 14:51By LANCE BRASHEAR on the Miami HeraldCasa San Marcos - a boutique hotel along what is slowly becoming a cultural corridor in central Quito - was, until recently, a house obscured by time. But the passage of time has a way of not just hiding treasures, but also revealing them when the right person comes along. The name Jose Jaime Ortiz was all but lost as the architect of Casa San Marcos until archives discovered in recent years revealed the hand behind the craftsmanship. Ortiz is now recognized as one of Quito's most formidable architects from the turn of the 18th century and is credited with a dozen structures in Quito including the El Sagrario Church, the reconstruction of La Merced Church, and the tower of Santo Domingo Church. ... more   less
