Overlooking the Plaza San Francisco in the heart of Quito’s historic Old Town, and believed to be built on the site where an Inca temple once stood, the Casa Gangotena just oozes history. Once owned as a family home by the wealthy and influential Gangotena family, this restored historic mansion offers a lavish homely atmosphere, featuring antiques and fine-furnishings, as well as a contemporary design and modern technology for guests’ comfort, such as complimentary wi-fi and air conditioning. This is a stylish and elegant base for a stay in Quito, and its guest rooms all feature high ceilings, and decor incorporating rich carpets, flowing curtains and Art-Deco style furniture, an en-suite bathroom (nearly all with a separate bath and shower) and L’Occitanne bathroom amenities, and a flat-screen 32” television, although as a boutique hotel with a rich heritage, the size of guest rooms and suites do vary.
Guests can rest and relax in the glass-enclosed patio area, stroll around the pretty garden, unwind with a book in the wood-panelled library, or admire views of the Old Town from the panoramic third-floor terrace. The colourful dining room offers guests a range of classic Ecuadorian dishes, as well as fine international cuisine, and guests can enjoy a splendid Ecuadorian-style Afternoon Tea in the restaurant or on the patio, savouring freshly-brewed Ecuadorian coffee, infusions using different Andean herbs and superb arriba chocolate delicacies. The hotel’s partnership with Pakari, one of the most highly-regarded exporters of fine Ecuadorian chocolate, has enabled it to boast its own line of chocolate bars, so be sure to try one of the chocolate tasting sessions!
