Casa Gangotena , Ecuador

Casa Gangotena Boutique Hotel is a true icon of Ecuadorian hospitality.

It’s a place for you to feel entirely at ease, whether you’re reading about the city’s history in the eclectic, palm-filled patio, unwinding in the cozy bar, or watching the sun set over Quito’s iconic skyline from the panoramic terrace, just as the Gangotena family did many years ago.

Casa Gangotena occupies a pivotal place in Quito’s historic heart: the southwest corner of Plaza San Francisco. Its history stretches back to the time of the Incas. According to the early Spanish chroniclers, in the 15th century the square featured several Inca temples, one of them situated at the site of the present house. The large Plaza was used for centuries as a giant open-air market or “Tianguiz” for indigenous traders from several regions.

Inspired by the biodiversity of Ecuador’s ingredients and developed together with our trusted suppliers and farmers, we have created our very own signature cuisine: cocina mestiza. Based on ongoing research into flavors, scents, textures and ancestral cooking techniques, it’s our tribute to Ecuadorian gastronomy.

Casa Gangotena Boutique Hotel

Casa Gangotena is located in the heart of the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, surrounded by some of the most beautiful and historically-significant buildings and churches on the continent. Cobblestone streets, whitewashed houses adorned with intricate balconies and grand plazas are quintessential features of Quito, forever under the gaze of the winged Virgin statue that sits high up on the Panecillo Hill.

 

Beautiful and eclectically-appointed, the hotel invites its guests to explore and to relax, whether in the dining room, glassed-in patio, garden redolent with the perfume of native flowers, wood-panelled library, or else atop its panoramic third-floor terrace. Daily breakfast included.
