From the entrance, friendly reception staff and just wandering through the foyer and atrium was beautiful. Our room very comfortable with a huge bathroom and it is here I feel the size of the bathroom could have... More

We knew not much about Quito before our trip and we prepared ourselves for something standard in term of accommodation. Casa Gangotena was a pleasant surprise to us.

We stayed here with friends for two nights at the end of our tour of the Galapagos and Ecuador. We arrived at the hotel tired and cold after a very long and weather beaten drive.

Beautiful location, the staff couldn't do enough, the gardens and terrace were discreet and perfect. All meals (inc the free High Tea..) were delicious - the restaurant served fantastic food. The rooms were decorated in an part old style but still felt modern. Great cocktails too
