A lovely hotel situated right off a central historic square. Everything looks brand new and is very clean. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. The rainfall shower in the white marble bathroom is something to look forward to every morning-I didn't want to get out! Lots of little touches that make this place special- the fresh fruit in the room on arrival, the handwritten welcome note from the concierge, the chocolates and cookies left by the turn down staff in the evening were all apprciated. We didn't eat dinner here but the buffet breakfast was wonderful- lots of local cheeses and fruits guaranteed a healthy start to the day!

On our recent trip to South America we stayed at this hotel in Quito. It was booked by the tour company we were travelling with - lucky us! We had three consecutive stays and each one was as good as the other. The staff in all areas were helpful and friendly and put up with our lack of Spanish. Each time we returned we were allocated the same room and welcomed "home". We all agreed that we would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.

We thought everything about this hotel was wonderful (had there been a pool we would have been in paradise) but the fascinating town of Old Quito gave us plenty of other distractions. The buffet breakfast was wiothout doubt the most amazing we have ever experienced anywhere in the world - including 5 star resorts in Bali.

Room Tip: WE were in Terrace 1 - spacious and luxurious with a huge terrace which although accessible to other guests seemed only to be used by us!

Beautifully restored and well thought out former private mansion right in the heart of Quito's lively old town. Our room had been upgraded and was spacious and comfortable - very lux! A beautiful bathroom with a lovely soaking tup (as well as a nice shower area) with upscale ammenities. Cozy beds......They serve a complimentary high tea in the afternoons (quite often in the covered inner courtyard) and it should not be missed. The dining room is lovely - but since we had so many meals there we wished they would have changed the lighting in the evening (it was bright) to change the mood of the restaurant. The breakfasts were ample and delicious - great choices including eggs cooked to order. The staff were all amazing - and they actually thought about our needs before we did. The hotel manager offered to move us to a quieter location when he knew an event was going to take place on the sqaure the next day. Very thoughtful! A friendly and safe environment in what can be a noisy and busy city! I would recommend it to anyone - from business travelers to honeymooners. Since it's the overnighter for most trips to the Galapagos, I'd recommend staying an extra day or two here. Loved the trip to Otavalo to see the country. And the inner courtyard gardens of Quito's old churches - beautiful!

Room Tip: The rooms over the square can be a bit noisier - but things quiet down at night. I did not see the rooms overlooking the garden area, but I'd still choose the rooms over the square to watch all the local activities. We saw everything from a wedding to local politicians photo shoot.

Our stay at Casa Gangotena was amazing. The service is first class. It is very well situated on the Plaza San Francisco which makes it easy to visit this beautiful city.
We had a gournet tasting menu at the restaurant and the chef had chosen a great variety of flavours with an Ecuadorian touch.
We would like to thank all the staff who go out of their way to make your stay very special.
This is a very special place.
