Our expectations were completely met by the decor, style and ambiance of this old mansion. Service at the bar and restaurant was friendly but discrete. The selection of ecuadorian food was exquisite. The internal patio and the external garden was beautiful in all the minor details. Great composition of flowers gave a mixture of good feelings. Our room had a... More

We recently spent two weeks in Ecuador and our last night in this lovely hotel as a birthday celebration for me. Management was aware of this , and a chilled bottle of champagne was waiting in our room along with sparkling water and exotic fruits. A lovely touch!! The sheets, pillows and bed were heavenly, indeed. Ironed sheets!! Wow!! My... More

This really is a first-rate hotel. All the favourable comments are confirmed. Our room faced the square and, while by no means large, had all that was needed. The bed was big and comfortable, with superb pillows. The bathroom was large and could have accommodated two sinks, but unfortunately did not. A stand-out feature were the flowers in the public...

A 100-year old mansion carefully restored, in the best location of the Historic City, near everything to be seen. Luxury, refinement, discrete service and a very good bar and restaurant. There is not a single square inch in floors, ceilings or walls in mediocre condition.

We luckily stayed 3 lovely nights at this hotel. It oozes charm, elegance, and taste. We arrived to a lobby and garden area full of luxurious flowers, crystal chandeliers and complimentary high tea...this was very welcome to relax and hydrate in the high altitude. Our very large room had all the high end amenities one could want and nothing was... More

Casa Gangotena is a very nice hotel, but needs to work on their service (they are relatively new, only in business less than 2 years). With service improvement, this hotel would truly earn and deserve its 4-5 star rating. My husband and I had the great fortune to stay at both Casa Gangotena and Hotel Plaza Grande during our trip....

We have traveled many places but this hotel is the most outstanding we have ever stayed n. Fresh flowers everywhere and super caring staff. They helped us get a suitcase that did not arrive when we did and when we asked for help with the ac in our room they were unable to fix it so they insisted on upgrading... More

What a gorgeous hotel top to bottom, excellently interior designed, an amazing location and great service. The location is fantastic - Quito Old Town is extremely charming and you step out onto the beautiful Plaza San Francisco which is bustling with life. Make sure to go up to the roof to get a great view overlooking the square. I would... More

We'd had eighteen hours of travel by the time we reached this hotel. The welcome was friendly, check in was easy. We upgraded to a luxury room which was superbly decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast and afternoon tea were of the highest quality, with service to match. The staff couldn't do enough for us. We would definitely stay here again.... More

The most spectacular hotel in Quito. We only stayed in this hotel 2 nights of our 2 week trip as it is expensive, but it is more than worth it. Beautiful rooms with beautiful views of the old town. Prime location. There is a restaurant downstairs which has impeccable service & a diverse menu at good prices. The whole place... More
