We stayed at Casa Gangotena for two nights in February. The hotel is just breathtakingly beautiful, one of the most lovely we've ever stayed in. The service was also some of the best we've ever encountered. If we called down for anything, it was up being delivered to the room within a few minutes. Don't miss the delicious cocktails and view from the roof!

Hotel's Favorite
I took my son and daughter-in-law & 3 grandchildren to Quito , the Galápagos Islands, and Mashpi. We were there for 3 nights the 1st week of March before the pandemic became so widespread. I’m writing this because we loved this hotel any the staff was so fantastic that if travel becomes possible again, I would go back in a heartbeat. We arrived close to midnight and were greeted with juice. When we went to our rooms, one of the staff came by to see if we would like sandwiches as it was so late . They were wonderful; unfortunately the children fell asleep and missed theirs. The service sets this apart—it’s what I call “old school” throughout. Breakfasts were excellent and the day we left for Mashpi, we were running late,so I was able to pack a box. We are dinner there 2 nights because we really were too tired to go out. The food and service were outstanding and there was a nice wine list. We didn’t get to use the rooftop bar because of the rain but the view was wonderful. The downstairs bar had interesting drinks and we were given complimentary drink tickets. Fruit and desserts were in the rooms. Thought the beds were especially comfortable. People were so kind. I am hoping that all of you and your families are safe and healthy and when this madness ends, people will be able to enjoy your wonderful hotel again.

We recently stayed at Casa Gangatena from Jan. 2,2021 through the 4th following a Galapagos cruise. Let me just say that in every way the hotel exceeded expectations...from location, decor, service, and Covid-19 prevention measures. We were so impressed with everything. Location, location, location...service, service, service and so accommodating with request. Was the perfect ending to our trip to Ecuador. Special thanks to Elizabeth the concierge who helped coordinate trip before hand and hosted a special Ecuadorian chocolate tasting...very special moment. Also special thank you to Damien who escorted us to San Francisco Church for a tour of the inner courtyard and towers at sunset on our last evening. Thank you to everyone there. It was just perfect.

Wow - this hotel is beautiful- you feel like your are in a perfectly restored European hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and decorated beautifully. Beautiful floral arrangements are all over the hotel. The food at the restaurant was delicious and with excellent service. Ecuador takes COVID precautions to a new level in comparison to the USA. This hotel is very cautious with anti bacterial sprays everywhere and spray downs when you enter the property. This is one of most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed at. Highly recommend this property and know that you are very safe.
