This hotel is truly unique, and guests who stay here are lucky to be a part of such a special place. The hotel is unlike many others, boasting a restaurant, an art gallery and an antique store (which is impeccably curated). The staff is super accommodating, and opened the antique store for us at an off hour just to let us browse (and purchase, as it is impossible not to with so many amazing items!).
The actual building is disguised from the street, but is expansive with many levels to explore on the inside. The restaurant has an outside seating area, and every part of this place is covered with art and antiques from Ecuador.
If you are going to Quito, and are looking for something special, please look no further.
