Hotel Casa San Marcos

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is well located in the old town and safe area. It is a very cosy boutique hotel with a very pleasant staff to help you out. They do have a guide who work for the hotel and to hire with his car for a day. Excellent service and not expensive. 135$ for one day touring to Otavallo.
Although they forgot to make our room one day, we will forgive beacuase the staff is service minded.

I stayed here with two friends for a few nights while exploring Quito, and it was amazing!! The hotel is centrally located in the Old Town, beautiful, and it feels like one is staying in someone's incredibly well-decorated home. The staff was warm, friendly, and helpful. They also helped us arrange a day tour, and the guide they use, Giovanni, was awesome as well - incredibly knowledgeable, flexible in the itinerary, and friendly! Breakfast at the hotel (included) was also delicious and made-to-order. A perfect Quito hotel; I will be recommending it to anyone I know who is headed to Quito!

My wife and I recently spent 3 lovely nights at Casa San Marcos, a lovely, elegant casa teeming with art and antiques. This property is on a fairly quiet street, the last block of which is pedestrian, and is only 3 or 4 blocks from Plaza Grande. Given our 3 night stay, we opted for a larger room (like a suite setup) that provided space to spread out and relax while we recovered from long days sightseeing and exploring Old Town. Our room was just perfect for that. It had a nice couch and coffee table, a side chair and a small writing desk and chair. There was also ample (armoire) space to hang up our clothes and have the suitcases out but not be tripping over them. Bathroom was large but narrow and it had a great view of the Panecillo. The antique mirror/vanity over the sink was a little too large for the space and made it difficult to use the sink, especially to wash your face. This 2nd floor room had two tall windows, one in the sleeping area and one in the sitting area, that opened up to the street. Even though facing the street, the room was quiet and we slept very well in the comfortable beds. Breakfast (eggs, juice, pan, fruit, coffee) is provided with the room and is served on a quaint covered patio at the back of the house. The staff was very friendly and helpful. CSM may be a little pricey for some but we found it to be well worth it .. a charming property, a convenient location, friendly staff - just like a comfortable home stay. Our only regret was that since this was our first time in Quito, we were out most of the day and didn't get a chance to truly explore Casa San Marcos itself and enjoy all the charms it offered. I guess we will save that for next time.

We stayed for two nights here. The room we stayed in was small and had too much furniture in the room ( half the furniture was for sale). The ensuite had a half wall and took up a third of the room. You could hear and smell everything whenever anyone used the toilet. The restaurant was just OK but was a bit strange as had no menu and no prices, we were charged $30 for a half bottle of cheap wine. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke English which was a great help. Overall I feel the price is over priced for what you get.

Nice hotel and excellent location. Excellent place to admire the artwork and local artisan displayed like in a museum. Panecillo is truly a beautiful room. Missing hot water on a few occasion. Friendly and helpful staff.

We arrived at Casa San Marcos after a week in the jungle ready for a sumptuous stay being spoilt with a little extra luxury. We weren't disappointed. Our room was lovely and very comfortable and he location perfect. The bed and linen especially comfy. But I was particularly impressed with all the staff and Mayra the owner who was delightful and welcoming and concerned for my partner who was ill when we arrived. Mayra generously invited me to join her for a wander with fab commentary around the city with a family which was great while my partner slept. Also the gallery has some stunning paintings and the house is filled with gorgeous rare pieces for sale and I came away with two purchases one from each that I love!

Room Tip: Our room on third level had the bathroom combined which suited us but may not suit all if you are mo...

This is the definition of boutique hotel. Staying here is like being a guest in an art collector’s grand home.

We stayed in two different rooms, both were spacious, well appointed and decorated with flair. Exploring the hotel was an experience in itself, with magnificent rooms, a wonderful view and gorgeous Ecuadorian roses everywhere, which are every bit as beautiful as they say.

Casa San Marcos is perfectly located for the Old Town. As we like architecture and culture, this was the right choice for us. We could walk to almost everything we wanted to see.

But what makes this place so lovely is the staff. It was almost as though they could not do enough for us. We had an emergency and the team at Casa San Marcos ran around for us, for example, arranging for the printing of a large number of important documents. They helped us change our booking without any quibble or hesitation. I could not have felt more relieved or welcome.

I almost don’t want to tell people about this place because it will become too popular. I cannot recommend it enough.

Room Tip: We stayed in two rooms (on different visits). The first was on the higher floor at the back. It ha...

Casa San Marcos, a house of treasures Publicado el 10/Noviembre/2011 | 14:51By LANCE BRASHEAR on the Miami HeraldCasa San Marcos - a boutique hotel along what is slowly becoming a cultural corridor in central Quito - was, until recently, a house obscured by time. But the passage of time has a way of not just hiding treasures, but also revealing them when the right person comes along. The name Jose Jaime Ortiz was all but lost as the architect of Casa San Marcos until archives discovered in recent years revealed the hand behind the craftsmanship. Ortiz is now recognized as one of Quito's most formidable architects from the turn of the 18th century and is credited with a dozen structures in Quito including the El Sagrario Church, the reconstruction of La Merced Church, and the tower of Santo Domingo Church. ... more   less
