“A Touch of Class”
Reviewed April 14, 2011

This hotel was the Mercado Mansion, built by tobacco money. It has been restored to opulence that will delight. Every room is different and elegant. My bed was strewn w/ rose petals the first night, there were even rose petals ijn the toilet..

The staff is friendly and helpful, altho' three postcards they were supposed to have mailed never arrived. There is a bistro, that during my stay we had to ourselves, with good food and attentive service. There is a lovely garden in the back. It was a bit too chilly to enjoy it in February. You feel very safe as hotel is behind locked gate, with buzzer for entrance. A very nice touch is tea at five o'clock, with lovely cookies/cakes..served on the elegant first floor landing. You do have to ask tho..

There are some things to be aware of however. The cab drivers do not know where this hotel is..or if they do, they are confounded by the one-way street. Therefore, I recommend that you definitely avail yourself of the airport pick-up service..even tho' it is much more expensive than a cab ..25$ while a cab would be 5-10. Once you get there, the hotel has a card w/ a small map..mark the one-way street and carry it with you to show cab drivers. Of course, as this hotel gets better known, it may be less of a problem.

Also, watch out for the plumbing..the showers are beautifully tiled, and glass door exquisitely etched..but it is poorly designed and prone to flooding. Don't put any thing on the floor while you shower and watch while you do, to see if your shower is filling up and spilling over. Floor should have been recessed and isn't.

Another thing to be aware of is that the hotel has no central heating. They provide electric blankets and on one occasion a warmed brick in the bed. There is also a heater in the bistro. This will not be a concern in the warmer months.

I stayed here five nights overall..and would stay there again. It is an experience. My own house seemed dreary on return

Room Tip: If you are noise sensitive, ask for a back room

Reading previous reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose the Hotel Mansion del Angel. While it is a greatly furnished beautiful old mansion, the location is far from desirable. You are literally far from any sights, restaurants etc. Quito is not a city to walk around in after dark. As a result we ate dinner in the hotel, and dinner was prepared by the bus boy and breakfast by some other hotel employee. The physical setting is beautiful. However the nights are filled with the sounds of traffic or a back room provided the sounds of continual car alarms going off and dogs barking. All this and we paid at least $100. more per night than a Hilton! When we moved rooms to attempt to get a quieter room, we were not accommodated with a decrease in charges either.

Just returned from a trip to Equador and stayed three nights at this property in Quito. Beautiful property. The rooms had great beds, there was a nice outdoors spot for breakfast and the staff were very helpful. it was a nice oasis in a large city.

This is a beautiful hotel and the service is wonderful. Decorated with pseudo antiques, it is gorgeous ! Unfortunately, the location is mediocre and the kitchen is so-so. Don't expect to walk to restaurants or entertainment - the neighborhood is pathetic. AND - don't trust the staff for restaurant recomendations! The mansion is not heated, so bring sweaters! On the plus side, the staff makes up your beds every night and uses either electric blankets or hot water bottles. Ask for a room in the back - front rooms are noisy in the morning!

I just returned from a trip to the Galapagos. We spent 4.5 days at Mansion del Angel on the front and back end of our trip. It's an exquisitely and lovingly-restored property and a feast for the senses. Our rooms were akin to large suites. Large bathrooms had excellent water pressure in showers, hair dryers, fresh flowers, soft (!) towels and all the toiletries one could need. Very comfortable beds, turned down each evening with a hot water bottle or electric blanket (varied by room). Breakfast (included in room rate) was part buffet, part served; freshly-squeezed juices, fabulous scrambled eggs, yogurt, cold cereals, fresh fruit, a variety of breads and pastries; excellent all around. Ditto for afternoon tea. The entire staff was terrific; very helpful, attentive and cheerful. They arranged all of our city transportation in the city and it was also flawless.

I would highly recommend this hotel to any Quito visitor who prefers small, unique hotels with character and personality. Please visit the hotel's web site; my words cannot do justice to the beauty of the property.

This is where you want to be in Quito! We used this hotel as our home base as we staying four separate times for a total of 7 nights. Each time Lupe and her staff made us feel like we were coming to stay with old friends. Four poster canopy beds warmed by electric blankets, rose petals and daily complimentary afternoon tea will make you feel like royalty. Wonderful breakfasts and genuine service beyond reproach. Each room is different and beautifully decorated while the bathrooms are modern and well-equipped. There is a computer off in a quiet alcove with free Internet access.

We stayed here for one night on our way back from the galapagos. a taxi from the airport to here is 8 us dollars and taxis to the old part of Quito are just 2 or 3 us dollars. We would recommend getting taxis as the altitude makes it tiring to walk and the city is busy with many cars and pedestrians. the hotel is magnificent, comfortable, quiet, and extremely well run. the level of personal service could be un equalled anywhere in the world. Breakfast is substantial and freshly cooked. Bed is large and comfortable, pillows a little hard for our European taste.
