Overlooking Plaza San Francisco
Situated in a newly-restored historic mansion overlooking Plaza San Francisco, the three-story Casa Gangotena Boutique Hotel harbours 31 rooms, a showcase of eye-catching style, contemporary design, antiques, fine furnishings, modern technologies and quintessential comforts.
Beautifully and eclectically-appointed, the hotel invites you to explore and to relax, whether in the glassed-in patio, garden redolent with the perfume of native flowers or in the wood-paneled library. On the panoramic third-floor terrace you can enjoy views of the plaza and in the dining room you can indulge in the chef’s celebrated Ecuadorian cooking from the Andes and the Coast, reflecting the country's amazingly rich and diverse ingredients. Casa Gangotena's Art Deco-styled rooms are arrayed across all three floors. Due to the property's heritage character, rooms vary in size, although all are comfortably ample and benefit from the mansion's elegant, tall ceilings, drawing the bright Andean sunlight into their interiors.
The cobbled Plaza de San Francisco is one of Quito’s oldest and most impressive sights. It was used for centuries by indigenous groups as a trading centre and is home to the magnificently white Monastery of San Francisco and affords views over the rooftops of southern Quito and the towering peak of Volcan Pichincha in the distance.
Sophisticated and eclectic, historic yet contemporary, at Casa Gangotena style, passion and service blend seamlessly and delightfully.
