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 perfect place to chill, have a cold lemonade, coffee and delicious cakes! We loved the patio, the interior and the lush green plants and exotic flowers. We definitely come back to stay and spend the night. A romantic hide-away for sophisticated love birds.

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

At over $400 per night this is definitely a splurge for Quito. There is nothing else you can complain about or even criticize. Great staff, excellent tea, lovely meals, super location, drinks on the 3rd floor terrace overlooking the historical city, cozy bar. the hotel however quoted us $120 for an airport transfer but we actually got an official airport...

Great historical hotel with the high ceilings, sweeping staircases and luxurious décor. There is an interior courtyard, bar and restaurant on the ground floor. The courtyard is filled with fresh flowers and has a number of coffee table books when you can enjoy some quiet relaxing time. The rooms were large with two queen beds and a large attached bathroom... More

From Marco at the door to the manager, everyone treats you with courtesy and respect and like a returning friend. Stunning rooms guarantee a great night's sleep and the food is as good as any on the continent. A real treat!
