We appreciated staying at several family-run haciendas on our recent trip to Ecuador, and La Jimenita is a wonderful example. The owners genuinely enjoy meeting all the interesting guests they have had since turning their old family place into this hotel, and we genuinely enjoyed meeting them. It turns out they are famous architects in Ecuador, so their buildings and grounds are beautifully designed and proportioned.
Although it's quite close to the new airport, it's a good half hour from downtown Quito, for a $20 taxi ride. And the weather stays a bit chilly year round at 9000 feet elevation, so bring warm clothes.
