We really enjoyed out time at this small, hard to find, but gem of a place in central Quito. Unless you know it is there, you can easily miss it. However, once inside was a fun place - lots of art, artifacts, old furniture and even a England Red Phone booth. It was very quiet while we were there, in... More

This hotel is conveniently located in the historic district. The rooms are on the small side but comfortable and quiet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and included in the price. I would definitely stay there again.

Recently stayed at the El Relicario del Carmen and found it quite nice. The rooms are small but beautiful and comfortable. The staff were all very helpful. It is a little hard to find but centrally located and a good price.

My daughter and I stayed here for just one night , but the entire experience was delightful. The refurbished colonial mansion is filled with beautiful antiques, paintings and carved wooden furniture. Would definitely return.

The hotel is very nice. however, my camera Nikon D800 & Lens Nikon 28-300 was stolen in the hotel lobby on Apr 15, 2015. I just left them on the table for filling a hotel registration form, just next to the front desk hotel. It's unbelievable.

We booked this hotel for several different nights because we had to travel out of Quito, each time the staff was willing to hold some of our extra luggage and keep the same rooms we originally stayed in (when we requested it), which was very helpful amd accomodating. The hotel is very peaceful with a nice, homey atmosphere and the... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. The customer service is excellent, the food is delicious (we had breakfast in their quaint restaurant every morning) and the staff are very friendly. They also offer set menus for dinner. The decor and design of the hotel is unsurpassed, they feature paintings by local artists, and the common room on the... More

We recommend this hotel to anyone who would like to discover an outstandingly charming and historic gem and immerse themselves in true Ecuadorian hospitality! The hotel is a beautifully, lovingly restored mansion filled with interesting antiquities as... More

The hotel hides behind a plain blue metal door, so it is rather like finding a delightful, unexpected present when someone opens it for you. Originally a grand house built in the eighteenth century, it retains the charm of a special old place, but it is fully modernized and very comfortable. You feel as if you've been given the privilege... More
