Casa Gangrena was simply fantastic. The location, food, service are all perfect. We arrived late at night and the evening concierge was kind enough to prepare some sandwiches, drinks and fruits for us upon arrival. Our room was very large with probably the largest marble bathroom we have ever seen. Located right on San Francisco Square the location could not...

Amazing historical mansion renovated to perfection located in the Old Town with magnificent views of this Unesco Heritage area. Every detail of this unique boutique hotel has been recreated with excellent style and comfort in mind. Aside from its architectural digest appeal, the location, service and especially restaurant are all outstanding. Whether it's breakfast lunch or dinner, the cuisine at...

The hotel was beautiful with very friendly staff. Food and drinks were great. The hotel is nice to walk around and the room was great. The price however was not cheap and I always cringe paying this much for just one night which is why we only stayed one night. Located in the Old Town, it was a very central...

As a luxury adventure blogger at world-adventurer.com I've stayed in many luxury properties in South America. Case Gangotena really stands out with its impeccable service, quality restaurant and overall European styled experience. Here's what I loved: - Decoration: Every detail of the building was stylishly modeled to create clean, modern lines while maintaining touches of its historic background. - Service:...

The Casa Gangotena is easily in the top 3 hotels I have stayed in. The hotel is located in the heart of Quito's historic district on the Plaza San Francisco. Our room was huge and perfect. The bathroom was amazing. Staff was accommodating and very friendly. Rooms come with breakfast and high tea - both worth experiencing. This is a...

I stayed at Casa Gagotena for one night at the end of my trip to Ecuador and I wish I could have stayed longer. It's a complete experience from the time you step in the front door. The location is great, service amazing and the hotel is beautiful. I loved my spacious and well appointed room with a lovely view...

Casa Gangotena was our base in Quito as we explored some of what Ecuador has to offer (which is a lot). We traveled north to Hacienda Zuleta and Otavalo, did a day trip to Nono, and an eight day cruise in the Galapagos (fabulous!). In between, we stayed at this very elegant hotel in the historic center of Quito close...

Beautiful, luxurious island in Quito's most central location. The service is personal and impeccable. The restaurant is outstanding. And the rooms are beautifully appointed with outstanding bathrooms. This hotel would be a top end legend in any city in the world, so it's presence in Quito is even more outstanding.

I wanted to love Casa Gangotena. The reviews have been glowing. However, my experience was marred in several ways: (1) The cost per night is far too high (approx. $500 plus substantial taxes) for a room. I stayed in a garden view room on the second floor for two nights in December and a plaza view room on the first...
