Illa is a luxury hotel in the neighborhood of San Marcos, at the heart of Quito’s historic center, a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site. Get closer to Quito’s past and present during your stay at Illa Experience Hotel. Let the city charm you, let it draw you into the essence of our culture and traditions.

Rooms

All these experiences are lived out from the comforts of a stylishly-restored building dating back to 1700. The 10-room hotel showcases key periods in the capital’s history, the rooms and suites on each floor decorated in Colonial, Republican and contemporary styles respectively.

Gastronomy 

 Perhaps most enticing of all, savour innovative Ecuadorian cuisine at the hotel’s award-winning restaurant partner, Nuema. In their previous location, the restaurant earned a top-recommended spot on Trip Advisor thanks to their refreshing take on Ecuadorian cuisine. The brilliance of their dishes comes from finding ways to respect traditional products without being traditional. Farm-to-table with ancient ingredients and modern innovation.

Spa

Treat yourself to a little pampering in our spa, equipped with Jacuzzi, body therapy room, reflexology room, luxurious amenities, and an exclusive area for one or two people. Only for guests, by prior reservation.
