It's fascinating place! Beautiful, original with a lot of history. If you want to stay away from everything, relax and recharge it's your place to go! Just you , history and nature. If you cannot live without TV ,Wi-fi, social life, well, it maybe not good hotel for you. Food is great, from hacienda own garden, healthy and organic. They... More

Our Andean summer began at San Augustin hacienda. We arrived in the evening after a long flight and realized how cold the mountains can be. We immediately sensed the special atmosphere of the place. The inner court with small chapel, the rooms with fireplace heating built on the ruins of original Inka constructions. There is also a beautifuly designed living... More

We stayed just the one night which was too short. Amazing room with open fire. Superb food taken in rooms with Inca walls. Delightful hospitality from Mignon, Patricio and the team. We must find a way to go back to this magical place in the shadow of Cotopaxi

I love the feeling of the old Hacienda, but San Agustin goes a step above that with the Inca ruins. Service was great, the views of Cotopaxi are breath taking, the locro was the best I ever tasted and we LOVED the llamas.

We were on a tour of Ecuador and the company had booked us in here for lunch. What a treat,some buildings are Inca based, the others just ooze class. Any place that has these views,it's own bullring(not used ) and the fantastic service and food we got deserves the accolade of 5 stars. To cap it off we had to... More

I can't say enough about this hacienda; beautiful grounds, magnificent views, horseback riding, fishing, wonderful food and very accommodating staff. The rooms were big, spacious and well appointed. A wonderful experience all the way around.

Would have been better if our room wasn't next to the communal lounge & some inconsiderate people hadn't had a loud party in the lounge until 12.30. Ridiculous & totally spoilt the stay. Our daughter had to sleep in our bed with us because it was marginally quieter than where her bed was which might as well have been in... More

We were totally blown away by this place and its history. Going back to the fifteenth century we could almost imagine ourselves back then. The suite of rooms was just amazing with old furniture, paintings on the walls, and a wood-burning stove in each room, including the bathroom! All guests ate together and although it was very friendly the staff... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since the 15th century San Agustin de Callo has served as an Inca fortress and palace and Augustinian monastery and was also temporary home of the French Geodesic Mission (1742) whose scientific work helped change the shape of the planet. Other famous visitors include the brilliant German scientist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt and English mountain climber Edward Whymper. In 1912 the Hacienda was purchased by General Leonidas Plaza Gutierrez, leader of the liberal Revolution and two-time President of Ecuador.With only eleven rooms, it is one of the most romantic spots for honeymoons and other special occasions. San Agustin de Callo constitutes the only lived in museum of Inca Imperial and Spanish Colonial style. Surrounded by the smoke-blackened Inca walls of the dining room, one can marvel at the infinite precision of the stonemasonry, a monument to the unrivalled craftsmanship of the Incas, and admire the stunning view of Cotopaxi, the highest active volcano in the world.The peaceful atmosphere and magical landscape combine to make San Agustin a sanctuary of inspiration for artists and lovers of nature and a restful haven for weary travelers ... more   less
