Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Casa Gangotena is on Plaza San Francisco, in the heart of Quito. 

Rooms at Casa Gangotena

High ceilings and towering windows make sure that the rooms at Casa Gangotena are always filled with light. Soft gold and cream décor is in keeping with the building’s antique character, but the marble bathrooms, heating and air conditioning are bang up to date.

Food & Drink

A carefully-selected wine list complements the international fusion cuisine on offer in the elegant dining room. 


At the centre of the hotel is a patio topped by a glass roof, a supremely comfortable space in which to settle down with a book after a day’s sightseeing. The roof terrace is a perfect spot to watch one of Quito’s many parades and carnivals.

Activities at Casa Gangotena

Baroque monuments, artisanal craft shops, cafés and convents are scattered throughout the streets surrounding the hotel, so sightseeing or just wandering is the order of the day. The hotel can advise on the best places to pick up a coffee or a piece of hand-crafted jewellery.
