Rooms & Suites

Luxury Suite in Ecuador

Casa Gangotena’s rooms, with both double and king-size beds, are arranged across all three of its floors. Remaining faithful to the design of the old house, rooms vary in size yet all of them remain quite spacious, averaging around 35 square meters (377 square feet). All of our rooms benefit from the mansion’s tall, elegant ceilings which draw the bright Andean sunlight into their interiors.

Their decoration consists of plush carpets, towering window frames, flowing curtains and Art Deco furniture such as desks, armoires, tables and armchairs. All rooms are air-conditioned, carpeted, non-smoking and sound-proofed. All have their own private bathroom (nearly all with separate bathtubs and showers). Amenities include: telephones, intelligent key-cards, in-room safe boxes, wireless internet and a flat screen TV with international cable channels.

The Restaurant

Flooded with natural light in the morning and elegantly lit in the evenings, our restaurant combines all the elements of a memorable dining experience in the heart of Quito’s Old Town.

Our restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, brunch (only on Sundays), Café Quiteño (“high tea”), and dinner.


Luxury experiences in Ecuador

Casa Gangotena is located in the heart of the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, surrounded by some of the most beautiful and historically-significant buildings and churches on the continent.

Cobblestone streets, whitewashed houses adorned with intricate balconies and grand plazas are quintessential features of Quito, forever under the gaze of the winged Virgin statue that sits high up on the Panecillo Hill.

The Old Town invites you to explore its streets, plazas and passageways that are steeped in the history and culture of the city, to peep into the darkened shops selling traditional hats and chocolates, and to pause on street corners to taste the snacks that Quiteños have enjoyed for generations.

Quito’s Old Town ranks among one of the largest and best-conserved historic centers in all of the Americas. It is a preserved wonder from a bygone era, brimming with museums and exhibitions that help piece together the larger picture of the city of Quito – a jewel on the crown of the Andes.
