Opened in fall 2011, Casa Gangotena is located in a newly-restored historic mansion overlooking Plaza San Francisco, making it an ideal starting point for exploring Quito’s historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 31-room luxury boutique hotel is a showcase of eye-catching style, contemporary design, antiques, fine furnishings, modern technologies, and quintessential comfort. It is at once intimate – like the family home it once was – and sophisticated, with all the facilities and services today’s world travellers expect.
