Casa Gangotena is the premier and original luxury hotel in the historic quarter of the Ecuadorian capital city. A former colonial mansion that is now a refined first class hotel with a neo classical theme. The mansion has a feeling of grandeur and historical charm throughout.

Casa Gangotena is an extremely professional and comfortable hotel with a  prime location in the UNESCO protected historical quarter of Quito.

The rooms at Casa Gangotena

There are 31 quiet, comfortable and spacious rooms in the building that is situated on the corner of Plaza San Francisco. Some rooms have views out over the Pancillo Hill in the west of the city, others have views out over the historical plaza ( there are 20 luxury (standard) rooms,  1 x Junior Suite, 1 x balcony junior suite and 8 plaza view rooms).

The rooms have white marble bathrooms with all the luxury amenities you will need. The rooms have thick and cosy carpets, ample storage facilities and large armchairs with a desk. Each of the rooms has been remodelled in the past few years ensuring that the high standards of comfort that are demanded by their discerning guests are met.

The facilities at Casa Gangotena

The hotel has a traditional bar that has mahogany wood throughout the small space. Here you will find some of the best cocktails in Quito (only for guests of the hotel). The internal and very bright courtyard is a relaxing spot away from the hustle and bustle of the city outside for a light lunch or afternoon tea. The restaurants at Casa Gangotena is also very delicious and is regarded as one of Quito’s best options for an evening meal. It specialises in traditional Andean favourites with a modern European twist. On the rooftop you will find half a dozen tables and a few stools with views out over the plaza. We suggest that  this is one of Latin America's best spots for a nightcap before bed.
