One of the most recent upscale hotels to open in Quito and so far the best one too. There are 31 rooms in this restored historic mansion, right in the city centre. High ceilings and some pleasant art deco pieces make the place feel stylish and airy. If possible, book the balcony garden suite, overlooking the hotel garden and with views of the hilltop Virgin of Quito.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers
- Casa GangotenaFeb 01, 2013
Located in Quito’s old town on Plaza San Francisco, Casa Gangotena is a perfect blend of the old and new. This property used to be a mansion belonging to one of the wealthiest families in town. It has since been updated to a gorgeous hotel with all the modern day conveniences travelers want and need, including flower arrangements sure to surprise you at every turn.
Upon arriving to the hotel, guests are welcomed into a pristine lobby with fresh juices and snacks. Once checked in guests are escorted to one of the 31 unique rooms, each featuring ornate details that somehow seem to compliment flat screen televisions. The junior suite is especially fantastic, with a hand-painted mural and views of the Virgin Statue perched on a nearby hilltop.
The hotel accomplishes their goal of making guests feel comfortable with special touches such as welcome champagne and afternoon tea. Guests can enjoy conveniences such as wireless Internet while relaxing in the reading room. Or for those guests that are truly on a leisure vacation, they can take their happy hour in the garden or to the terrace overlooking Plaza San Francisco. This truly is a spectacular place to call home in Quito for all types of travelers.
Virtuoso amenities include upgrade on arrival, subject to availability, daily American breakfast and chef’s six course tasting menu with wine for two, once during your stay.
