Casa Gangotena


Situated in a newly-restored historic mansion overlooking Plaza San Francisco, the three-story Casa Gangotena Boutique Hotel in Quito harbors 31 rooms, a showcase of eye-catching style, a fine mix of classic architecture, contemporary interior design, antiques, fine furnishings, modern technology and quintessential comforts. Beautifully and eclectically-appointed, the hotel invites its guests to explore and relax, whether you’re in its dining room, at the glassed-in patio, in the garden redolent with the perfume of native flowers, at the elegant indoors Sitting Room by the patio or atop its panoramic third-floor terrace. Beyond the doors of this luxurious hotel, the World Heritage wonders of Quito as well as the vastly-different and diverse worlds of Ecuador itself await. Sophisticated and eclectic, historic yet contemporary, style, passion and service blend seamlessly and delightfully at Casa Gangotena.


Accommodation at Casa Gangotena


Casa Gangotena's rooms are arrayed across all three of its floors. Due to the property's heritage character, rooms vary in size, although they are all comfortably ample, averaging 35 square meters (377 square. feet) in area. All benefit from the mansion's elegant tall ceilings which draw the bright Andean sunlight into their interiors. The decoration has rich carpets, towering window frames, flowing curtains and Art Deco-style furniture such as desks, armoires, tables and armchairs. All the rooms are air-conditioned, carpeted, non-smoking and sound-proofed, with private bathrooms (nearly all with separate bathtubs and showers), and with telephones, intelligent key-cards, in-room safe boxes, wireless internet and flat-screen TV sets with international cable channels.

On the ground floor, two Luxury rooms have garden access. On the first floor, the Balcony Junior Suite overlooks the garden with views directing south of the city. There are also nine Luxury rooms and four Plaza View rooms. On the second floor, we have eight Luxury rooms and four Plaza View rooms. On both the first and second floors, one suite can be separated to make two connecting or individual Luxury rooms. Finally, two Luxury rooms complete the picture of the third floor.

The cuisine at Casa Gangotena’s Cedron Restaurant is a Celebration in honor of Ecuador’s typical cuisine, upgraded to the finest status of creativeness and a flair-filled blend of traditional and modern, a superb alchemy of ingredients, textures, aromas and flavors.
