A truly historic house, dating back to 1705 has just opened it??s door as a hotel with 18 comfortable rooms. It is beautifully renovated with great emphasis on the original details and has all the comfort expected today, including a central air conditioning system. All the furniture is handmade by recognized Ecuadorian artisans and many original paintings decorate public and private areas. You will live in a real historic surrounding. The hotel is definitely declared non-smoking. It is located a block away from the main square "Plaza de la Independencia", the Government Palace and very close to many historic monuments of Quito. We also have an exclusive dining room and coffee-shop.

We recommend the airport taxi service for a save transfer to our hotel. You will see the taxi reservation stand when leaving the restricted area inside the airport in front of the door. Taxi ride from the airport takes aprox. 45 minutes. We are 43 km away from Tababela airport. Taxi fare is around $ 30. Airport taxis are controlled and safe.
Have a nice trip.
