Casa Gangotena Review

On the southwest corner of Plaza de San Francisco, this historic mansion opened its renovated doors in late 2011 as Quito's newest boutique hotel. Guests are greeted at check-in with a restorative herbal drink, the perfect remedy for the combination of travel and the Andean location, and the top-notch service continues throughout your stay. Common areas such as the terrace and glass-covered courtyard combine plush seating with touches of whimsical; Art Nouveau and Neo-classical design touches are throughtout the property. The decorative molding of the 15-foot-high ceilings is enough to take your breath away, if the altitude hasn't already. Rooms are done in light blues and neutrals with marble-clad bathrooms and convenient additions like iPod adapters and free wi-fi. Dinners in the ground-floor restaurant are especially relaxing after a long day of exploring, the quiet space is only open to hotel guests in the evening.
