Staying at Casa Gangotena in the heart of old town Quito was one an elegant travel experience. It is a Colonial home converted into a hotel and everything about the place says sophistication. From the moment you pass by the door, held open by friendly doormen to the front desk people escorting you to your room to the slippers laid... More

Nothing is too much trouble. For example, my wife and I booked onto a walking tour... More

From the moment we stepped out of the car that transferred us to the Hotel we where at AWE! Every Employe is trained so highly that you feel you are Royalty. The Rooms are very large and wonderfully quiet. Again you think you are in a Castle. The High Tea was very delicious. We will go back in a heartbeat.... More

The old house of a well-off aristocratic family was refurnished and redone by new owners to offer an excellent place to stay and visit the old part of the city of Quito. It is right next to the colonial San Francisco plaza and church, and just a few steps away from other interesting sites. It offers a beautiful view of... More

From the moment my wife and I stepped through the door of this hotel we were unable to fault it. The warm welcome and fast check-in was faultless and very welcome after the long flight to Quito. Our room was beautifully appointed and decorated - and overlooked the garden. The relaxed feel of the Atrium ( see picture) makes it... More

The hotel's position is ideal for exploring the old city on foot. Our room was delightfully quiet (102) and very comfortable. The staff were friendly, helpful and charming and the establishment deserves it's No.1 rating in Quito.

We truly enjoyed our short stay at Casa Gangotena. It is a beautifully restored building well located on the main square in Quito. The main areas are stunning. Our room had a lovely view of the square with big windows and plenty of space within the room and bathroom. The staff was very attentive. The afternoon tea was fun with... More
