Quito: Casa Gangotena

Casa Gangotena

Save up to £200 per room >>
Special Offer:

Casa Gangotena is a richly luxurious boutique hotel right on the main square of Quito's old quarter. The building is a restored Renaissance-inspired mansion which preserves the opulent ambience and décor of its former incarnation. Furnishings and fittings are mostly neoclassical in flavour, the ornate design tempered by the use of muted colours – beige, light green, cream and gold. 

Guestrooms are large, quiet and very well appointed. There is a nod to contemporary style in the spacious bathrooms where you will find marble bathtubs and rain showers.

Befitting its aristocratic ambience, the hotel has no extra facilities such as a spa, pool or gym but there is a terrace bar with great views over the plaza and a small patio garden. There is also a small restaurant serving breakfast and dinner. The staff are very attentive.

The hotel has achieved what for many is the ultimate accolade: to be included on Condé Nast Traveller's Hot List of favourite hotels around the world. To have done this within 6 months of opening is impressive indeed.

What our experts say

A luxurious option in Quito – the location of this converted mansion cannot be beaten - it is right on Plaza San Francisco in the old town.The hotel has a certain opulence about it with marble staircases, spacious rooms and luxury decor; however it also has an intimate feel that reminds you of the sophisticated family that once occupied the mansion.
