We were fortunate to get a room at Casa Gangotena because we made our plans fairly late. But, I'm so glad we did. Everything from the gorgeous building, to the beautiful and spacious updated rooms, to the food, and most of all the fantastic service was excellent. The building was originally a private mansion and the public areas are just... More

We had a walk up very beautiful garden room facing a very relaxing fountain. The bathroom was gorgeous with porcelanosa fixures. Relaxing spa like music was playing throughout the hotel. We found...

Stayed here for a couple of weeks with my family during our trip in Latin America. It is simply the best hotel i've stayed in there! All the hotel personal was extremely nice and attentive. The hotel itself is a masterpiece, an incredibly luxurious building. Rooms were huge with a very modern style. Totally recommended!

We absolutely loved our stay in Casa Gangotena. Our rooms were spacious and beautifully appointed and had large windows with colourful views of Quito and surrounding mountains. The location within the Old Town is brilliant, just a short walk to most attractions. The service was outstanding, when we arrived (after travelling for nearly 24 hours) we were exhausted and we...

I loved our three night stay at Casa Gangotena. Located in the SanFrancisco Plaza. Beautiful view of the plaza and the city lights. The service was impeccable and the room was very luxurious. Huge size room with lots of Windows and the bed was incredibly comfortable. We truly enjoyed the buffet breakfast and enjoyed our afternoon tea.

How you take this review has everything to do with you and whether "standard" means "quality" or "ordinary". Casa Gangotena is a five-star hotel of international standard. It is lovely, comfortable and amazingly quiet. The front desk staff are exceptionally attentive. If you are accustomed to staying in five-stars, you will feel very much at home here. But Casa Gangotena... More
