Casa Gangotena is a beautiful jewel in this beautiful World Heritage Site. We arrived around 1 am and were greeted by staff who had prepared a snack for us upon arrival. The suite is well proportioned. The bathroom big enough for two quite easily, and very modern. The bed is extremely comfortable. The amenities suit the ambiance of the hotel...

I checked in at 3 am on a Sunday night and they did it without a frown. The hotel itself can't be better positioned at overlooking the plaza San Francisco. I personally don't care for Quito that much because of the pollution so I spent most of the time in the hotel getting over my jet lag and to enjoy...

The ceiling must have been the originally restored ornate tiles and at...

The rooms are beautifully appointed, comfortable, and large, considering both the age of the building and the location in the heart of the old town. The only complaint was the air conditioning had trouble keeping up. The windows open and...

In the Top 25 Hotels in the World, so not much else to say - but do have the High Tea! Great location, staff wonderful, plentiful breakfast. Large rooms, and do go to the upper Terrace at night for the local attractions all lit up.

Beautiful luxury hotel facing San Francisco plaza in old town Quito. Everything about this hotel is above par. While expensive, you are getting a great location, beautiful common areas and rooms, excellent bar and restaurant, and top notch service from a friendly and attentive staff.
