The three story Casa Gangotena Boutique Hotel offers 31 rooms which are elegantly decorated. Featuring both double and king-sized beds, the rooms vary in size but each is comfortably ample. Each room benefits from the mansion's towering ceilings and large windows. The rooms are decorated with rich carpets, modern furniture, and elaborate Art Deco and Art Nouveau murals.

Casa Gangotena features a large dining room, where a master chef creates international and local dishes which are sure to please every palate. Partnering with the local community, all meals served on site are purchased from local markets. The hotel also offers a glassed-in patio, large garden, wood-panelled library, an a panoramic third-floor terrace.

Combining the ancient elegance of Quito with all the comforts of home, Casa Gangotena is an ideal location in which to stay during your Quito tour. Beyond its doors, the world heritage wonders of the city, as well the vastly-different and diverse worlds of Ecuador itself, await you.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
