Luxury Holidays at Casa Gangotena

Casa Gangotena is a gorgeous, stylish boutique hotel housed within a restored historic mansion overlooking Plaza San Francisco in the historic heart of Quito. It is thought to be built on a site where an Inca temple once stood and in more recent history, it belonged to the Gangotena family, who were one of Quito’s most wealthy and influential families. With just thirty-one guest rooms and suites spread over three storeys, the hotel offers an intimate, homely atmosphere and it’s contemporary design is accentuated with antiques, fine furnishings and, of course, modern technology such as complimentary wi-fi and air-conditioning. Sophistication and elegance resonates throughout, whether in the dining room, the glass-enclosed patio area, the pretty garden, the wood-panelled library or on the panoramic third-floor terrace, where guests can sit and admire views of the Old Town.

City Highlights

Everything in Quito is within walking distance, so take time to wander through its magnificent streets, especially in the Old Town, peeping into darkened shops selling delightful hats and sumptuous chocolates (Ecuador produces fine and superior quality chocolate, due to its tropical climate), before pausing for a light bite on a street corner to savour a delicious corn on the cob with cheese that residents of Quito have enjoyed for generations. Maybe a tour of San Francisco is what you desire? Organised by Casa Gangotena and hosted by a Franciscan monk, explore the beautiful Church and Convent of San Francisco, climbing winding staircases and into towers normally only accessed by bell ringers and the choir for a unique insight into this most iconic religious building.

Culture & History

The history of Quito is rich and truly fascinating, dating back to the Incas. Quito was the Inca's northern capital until, in 1534, the Spanish conquistadors entered the city and set out to change the hearts and minds of the local population. Centuries of Colonial rule led to the development of Quito's stunning architecture, including the historic mansion, Casa Gangotena. In 1978, Quito received the first ever UNESCO World Heritage Site city status for having the best and largest preserved historic centre in the Americas. Discover why during a trip to Quito's 'Old Town', packed full of Colonial monuments and architectural treasures.

Hotel Experiences

Casa Gangotena has partnered with Pakari, one of Ecuador's most highly-regarded exporters of fine Ecuadorian chocolate, to launch its own line of chocolate bars. Happily, chocolate-tasting sessions can be arranged!
