The building is lovely and the restaurant is nice inside. The rooms are very spacious too though did not have a mini bar. The wifi is free and multi-device. There is sadly no gym or in-house spa and apparently the closest is a 30-45 minute drive away. Good point to start from when touring Quito. Everyone was very friendly except...

We often look for Four Seasons hotels prior to travel but since there where none in Quito we chose Casa. I would rate the facility right up there with Four Seasons. The service was good but not close to FS. The location was great. My issue with service was regarding the restaurant. I asked to get a table for dinner...

Stayed for 2 nights in a hotel which reminded me of colonial times where the hotel is draped in white against the dirt and grim of the street. The flowers and décor were very welcoming. The staff helped us out and were very friendly.

When you enter this hotel you see style and decor that is designer lead. Lovely welcome, lovely scent of fresh flowers, staff in abundance all well dressed and eager to help. Only disappointment is the service in the small bar. On all the occasions we used it there was a long wait. Nothing that training will not sort out. Booking...

This elegant building exudes class as well as welcome from the moment you step into the stunning lobby. The staff were among the most helpful, welcoming and warm I have come across anywhere in the world. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them, whether sorting out a crumpled dress, suggesting AND supplying remedies for any hint of altitude...

Fabulous hotel in old city. Great location. Beautiful interior and exquisite flowers every where. All staff were very efficient and helpful. The restaurant is really excellent but dinner service on the slow side.

This hotel and its dining room are fashionably European in every respect. The service is top notch, the linens and flowers lend elegance, and the decor and food is excellent. We are from Miami and would love a romantic long weekend in Quito, but only at the Casa Gangotena. We would accept no less and it would be difficult to...

Casa Gangotena is probably the best option in Quito combining luxury, service and location. Staff is great, decoration superb, very fine restaurant. A very rounded proposition at European prices. It is located at Plaza San Francisco, quiet but at the very center of the city. Penthouse is to die for!

I am not a professional reviewer, and this is just my opinion. This rating of "excellent" will only apply to the hotel, where my wife and I stayed for three nights on two different occasions. My comments about the restaurant will be shown at the end of this review. First of all, the location of the hotel could hardly be...
