Casa Gangotena, a daydream in a historical private mansion

In Quito's historic centre on the Plaza San Francisco, a 19thcentury mansion was turned into a luxury boutique hotel, Art Deco setting and latest technologies included.

Akin to Quito's historic centre, where this boutique hotel set up home, Casa Gangotena radiates of the charm of yesteryear. The Art Deco decoration – murals, painted ceilings, period furniture, gorgeous rugs – and the Neo-Classical architecture are directly inspired by the private mansion's past, from the early 19th century onward. It was made a Relais & Châteaux and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1978, just like Quito's old town.
Just like its unique setting overlooking the San Francisco square, Casa Gangotena makes room for high-end cuisine, inspired by Ecuador's various regions. While all the major monuments of the country's capital are within a stone's throw, climb up the rooftop to enjoy a cocktail or a café, depending on the time of day. In the backdrop, enjoy an exceptional 360° vista of the whole city, presenting these hallmarks with a different perspective. In daytime, and when skies are clear, squint and you may even be able to see the Cayambe volcano and its white peak in the distance.
