We toured the property and had some refreshments but didn't stay here. It's gorgeous and elegant but there's something unsettling about enjoying such expensive luxury while overlooking a plaza teeming with locals struggling to make a living by selling wares to tourists. If that doesn't bother you, I'm sure you'll enjoy the beautiful architecture and exemplary service (from what we... More

Everything about this hotel is sumptuous! The location, the roof top terrace, the dining room, the indoor courtyard are all enchanting. The staff is lovely and English speaking. We stayed but one night, and were sad to leave. Our friends stayed at the Hotel Plaza Grande - also highly rated on Tip Advisor- but once they visited this hotel and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights before a Galapagos trip and were wowed by the beautiful building. It is a little oasis of calm in a busy city but still well located. We loved our beautiful ornate room and luxurious bathroom. Our room looked out onto a side street – we were aware of the noise from the square but... More

What a beautiful hotel! Tastefully redone. Great rooms, spacious and well-appointed. My recommendation is to avoid the rooms overlooking the streets. You will hear the street noise very early in the morning. The rooms overlooking the internal patio are preferable. The service is excellent and the people are very friendly. Breakfast is excellent. The hotel lacks a gym. Why not... More

We spent two nights here as we were passing through to the Galapagos Islands. I wish it had been more. It is beautiful. Helpful and efficient staff at all levels. Luxurious rooms. Perfect location. My husband needed to see a doctor who was waiting at the hotel on our arrival. The concierge translated and then arranged to have his medicine... More

My sister and I stayed here 4 nights as we traveled to and from Amazonia and the Galapagos Islands. A beautiful mansion turned hotel in the heart of Old Quito on The Plaza San Francisco. All of the staff treat you like family and do all they can to make you comfortable. The rooms are beautiful with spacious bathrooms. The... More

We spent 7 nights here over the course of 3 weeks travelling round Ecuador - it provided a wonderful, luxurious contrast to the more rustic places we generally stayed elsewhere. (I dreamt of the luxurious bathroom in the heat of the rain forest!) The staff were very helpful especially when my husband was suffering from the altitude and they start... More

We loved to have spent a night there on our way to the Galapagos Island. I wish we had 2 nights to enjoy other attractions in Quito.Their tea-time is not to be missed. The people in Quito were very friendly.

The hotel is perfectly located in the Old Town of Quito. We stayed here one night after our tour of the Galapagos. From the moment you walk into the lobby, you are taken care of immediately by the exceptional staff. The hotel was once a private home, and the architecture is majestic and elegant. The dining room and solarium are... More

We had 2 nights in the Casa Gangotena before setting off on a Galapagos cruise and we could not have had a better start to our trip. We arrived late from Miami and after a lengthy ride in from Quito airport we were very tired. Check in was quick and sympathetic and our room nothing short of magnificent. The next... More
