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.
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.
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.
Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
