Casa Gangotena, the restored historic mansion hotel in the heart of Old Town Quito, was recently honored four times by TripAdvisor reviewers for the quality of its accommodation experience, earning Travelers’ Choice Awards as: #1 Best Hotel in Ecuador, #1 Best Hotel in South America, #1 Best Hotel for Romance in Ecuador, and #6 Best Hotel in the World.
Set overlooking Plaza San Francisco, Casa Gangotena is located in walking-distance to everything in Old Town Quito – a UNESCO World Heritage Site city that was recently designated “South America’s Leading Destination 2013” by the World Travel Awards.
The three-story mansion hotel has been immaculately restored with 31 guest rooms of contemporary design featuring modern technologies and quintessential comforts. Restored interiors throughout are beautifully arrayed with Art Nouveau and contemporary touches combined with original Neo-Classical architecture. Meanwhile, the hotel restaurant specializes in classic and updated Ecuadorian fare created from local ingredients, while a private terrace affords superb views of the comings and goings of Plaza San Francisco, site of the Old Town’s annual Easter festivities and much more.
