Casa Gangotena

Casa Gangotena is boutique hotel in Quito, Ecuador. This hotel blends the grandeur of the past with modern comforts and amenities. The hotel has a rooftop terrace that overlooks famous city landmarks. Inside, the rooms are beautifully designed. The restaurant serves delicious food, and there are other amenities too. This hotel promises a great stay in one of South America's most vibrant cities. Read on as we highlight all that this property has to offer.


Overlooking Plaza San Francisco, the three-story Casa Gangotena has 31 rooms. It's in a newly restored historic mansion. The showcase has a stylish design with eye-catching features. It includes antiques, fine furnishings, modern technologies, and ultimate comfort. The hotel is also beautifully decorated. Besides, it offers a variety of spaces for guests to relax and explore. Quito's world heritage and Ecuadorian culture are beyond the hotel's doors.

The hotel is a blend of style and passion. It's eclectic and sophisticated yet historic and contemporary. The hotel's history is essential at the heart of Quito's historical center, Plaza San Francisco. The history of this house dates back to Inca times. Early Spanish chroniclers claimed that the current house was built on the same site as Inca temples in the 15th century.

As soon as 1534 arrived, religious orders began to convert the hearts and minds of locals. So, Franciscans took over the western slope of a vast open-air Indian marketplace. They call it "Tianguez." Traders have used it for hundreds of years. In subsequent centuries, wealthy families began building homes in and around the Plaza San Francisco. Later, this mansion was the home of many Republican-era Presidents.

However, a fire destroyed the house in 1914. In 1926, it was rebuilt by the Gangotenas. This family is one of the capital's most influential families. Its members were industrialists and politicians, as well as landowners. Quito became the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978. It is America's largest and most preserved historical center. Casa Gangotena became part of Quito's cultural heritage inventory list a few years later.


The hotel is in Plaza San Francisco. It is also near churches, historical buildings, and museums. Independence Square is a few minutes walk from good local restaurants. You can enjoy a great view of Iglesia De San Francisco from the hotel's panoramic third-floor terrace. Besides, the journey time from Quito to the international airport is about 45 minutes. The walking tours of Quito start right in front of the hotel.

Style and Character

In 1914, a fire destroyed the original 18th-century family home. But they rebuilt it in 1920. Only a few original features remain. When the hotel was converted, they also restored several other features. These included painted-tin decorative ceilings and two frescoes. There is a hotel's welcoming doormen and Les Clefs d'Or Concierge. Also, a plush reception room with a sofa, fireplace, and many fresh flowers set the mood.

Service and Facilities

The hotel's top-notch services continue throughout the stay. The terrace, courtyard, and other common areas combine comfortable seating and touches. Moreover, you will find Art Nouveau and Neoclassical touches throughout the entire property. The molding on 15-foot ceilings will also take your breath away. The rooms are in neutral colors and light shades. The bathrooms are also in sparkling marble.

Allow the sunlight to wake you up in the morning. Or, keep it away with heavy drapes, window shutters, and blinds. Your stay includes an afternoon tea (from 4-6 pm). However, let the staff know that you are a vegetarian, and they will substitute the meat-based savories. The ground floor restaurant is excellent for relaxing after an active day. But it's only available for hotel guests at night.


The hotel has 31 guest rooms. These spread over two floors. This includes a junior suite with an original fresco. There is also a balcony junior suite that overlooks the garden. Some of the rooms look out onto the internal courtyard. There are also two plaza view rooms available.

Rooms are also prominent. Each features a flat-screen TV, a double-height window with luxury curtains and shutters, and more. The rooms have fancy carpets, tall windows, pretty curtains, and art deco furniture like desks, tables, and armchairs. Besides, there are private bathrooms, nearly all with separate bathtubs and showers. Fruit and water are replenished every day.

The workspace in the room is also lovely. They also equip the workstation with several electrical outlets.


Cedron serves a breakfast buffet, lunches, and dinners. This cozy bar stays open until 11 pm. There are also healthy and delicious dishes that feature Ecuadorian produce in season. The seven-course menu includes wine pairing. Moreover, Quintenan high tea is served in a conservatory-style courtyard. Be sure to try the Ecuadorian chocolate fino de Aroma. This airy room has orchids, large potted plants, and botanical print sofas. It's a favorite with guests of all ages.
