Located in Quito's touristic area close to most shops and boutiques, but also to La Carolina Park and the Museo Nacional del Ecuador, Vieja Cuba is without any doubt one of the best spots to take the pulse of the Ecuadorian capital. Straight away, you will be seduced by the architecture of this charming establishment, looking like a small Hispanic manor. You will distinguish the pastel pink tones of the hotel from afar, nicely embellished by green climbing plants covering the top of the round tower.
Whether as a family or with friends, just drop your suitcase and you will feel right at home in any of the 26 welcoming rooms, arranged with polished wooden floors and stone walls. The staff will go out of its way to make your life easier, find and program visits as well as arrange for transportation across town. You will also have an abundance of choices for each meal, with the Oshira restaurant's Mediterranean-influenced cuisine on one side and Fruta Fresca's on the other. As for those who crave relaxation, they merely need to cross the flower garden and pick up Ecuadorian author Leonardo Valencia's latest novel to enjoy it.
