Wonderful stay in this gem of hotel , the staff is very attentive and the restaurant is first class, we had a large room and enjoyed the fruit plate they would send up to our on a daily basis, also the concierge was very helpful in getting us great things to see and do.

This little casita gets a perfect 10 from me. Located in Quito's old town in the main square in an amazing villa. The rooms are brilliantly decorated and quite luxurious. Breakfast is spectacular. The service from all the employees was spot on and they were all extremely friendly and well trained. I've stayed in other hotels around town and this... More

We recently stayed two nights at Casa Gangotena. We stayed in a room in the back, off the garden/fountain area(this is important since we heard that some of the rooms in the front off the square could be noisy). The room was clean, spacious and well appointed. Most importantly, it was quiet and comfortable. The staff were very responsive and... More

Casa Gangrena was simply fantastic. The location, food, service are all perfect. We arrived late at night and the evening concierge was kind enough to prepare some sandwiches, drinks and fruits for us upon arrival. Our room was very large with probably the largest marble bathroom we have ever seen. Located right on San Francisco Square the location could not... More

Amazing historical mansion renovated to perfection located in the Old Town with magnificent views of this Unesco Heritage area. Every detail of this unique boutique hotel has been recreated with excellent style and comfort in mind. Aside from its architectural digest appeal, the location, service and especially restaurant are all outstanding. Whether it's breakfast lunch or dinner, the cuisine at... More

The hotel was beautiful with very friendly staff. Food and drinks were great. The hotel is nice to walk around and the room was great. The price however was not cheap and I always cringe paying this much for just one night which is why we only stayed one night. Located in the Old Town, it was a very central... More

As a luxury adventure blogger at world-adventurer.com I've stayed in many luxury properties in South America. Case Gangotena really stands out with its impeccable service, quality restaurant and overall European styled experience. Here's what I loved: - Decoration: Every detail of the building was stylishly modeled to create clean, modern lines while maintaining touches of its historic background. - Service:... More

The Casa Gangotena is easily in the top 3 hotels I have stayed in. The hotel is located in the heart of Quito's historic district on the Plaza San Francisco. Our room was huge and perfect. The bathroom was amazing. Staff was accommodating and very friendly. Rooms come with breakfast and high tea - both worth experiencing. This is a... More

I stayed at Casa Gagotena for one night at the end of my trip to Ecuador and I wish I could have stayed longer. It's a complete experience from the time you step in the front door. The location is great, service amazing and the hotel is beautiful. I loved my spacious and well appointed room with a lovely view... More
