The Casa Gangnotena is a stellar, sparkling hotel with a courteous and gracious staff. Our family had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Casa Gagnotena for three nights. This hotel is top notch, quiet (only 31 rooms), old world and is elegantly and tastefully decorated. My hat goes off to the exquisite interior decorator and the keen management. In... More

I was only here for lunch today, but will certainly stay on my return. The dinng service , linens, condiments, and guitar musician who started with a wonderful rendition of " blue moon" made this on of my best dining experiences. The public spaces are gorgeous and locatin perfect.

We can't take the credit for choosing this hotel. It was an upgrade by our tour company. Lucky us! We really enjoyed our two nights. It is a beautiful building that has been very tastefully decorated - I felt very comfortable there especially in the atrium with its lovely flower arrangements. There was a back ground perfume of lilies that... More

This place is a gem. Someone has spent mucho dollars renovating this beautiful mansion in the old section of Quito. Rooms are luxe. Nice linens, great shower. Seriously quiet. Staff tripping over each other to help you, especially the concierge, whom you should use, especially if you're a first-time visitor. They hired for us a reasonably priced car + (bilingual)... More

The Casa Gangotena is one of the loveliest hotels I have ever stayed at. Never over the top, it gives the feel of an earlier era. The afternoon tea is a great addition. (It is a small point, but we brought a young friend with us to tea, and were not charged any extra.) Breakfast, also, is sumptuous. The location... More

Perfect boutique hotel. The elegant decoration, the trained staff that knew our names, delicious breakfast (with french cheese and sparkling wine), and the perfect location at the Plaza San Francisco, old town. You won't want to leave the hotel. We would have stayed a week, with more time to visit all the churches and museums around!!!! First class everything.

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Gangotena. The hotel is beautiful, great location in Plaza San Francisco and a short walk to Calle La Ronda - the best street to walk in the city for interesting cafes, shops, bars, restaurants, etc. We stayed in Garden Room 1, and its location right off the outdoor terrace was really spectacular. That... More

Casa Gangotena is a boutique hotel (31 rooms) on a main square in the colonial part of the city. It is a short walk to the major colonial sites.

Elegant, boutique type hotel in old town Quito. Given the traffic it was somewhat of a drive from the airport, but worth it if you are staying more than one night. Good food and drink. Beautiful sun room for tea or happy hour. First rate customer service.

We stayed for three nights and experienced consistent high quality service and attention. The room is very generous, and well appointed. The breakfasts were excellent. The highlight was high tea, when the staff served savoury and sweet petite fours on a tiered plated in the beautiful conservatory - surrounded by flowers !! Nothing was too much trouble, the staff anticipated... More
