Stayed here on 3 occasions whilst travelling in Ecuador. The rooms are nice and spacious but for the price and standard of hotel I would have expected more. There are no facilities other than a roof terrace which gives good views down to the square. We are here one night and food was ok but service was painfully slow. Lunch... More

The staff was extremely helpful and attentive. The meals were delicious. The accommodations were everything that a traveler could hope for. The location was perfect for anyone who wants to spend time in Old Town, just steps away from its sights, sounds and smells, but still completely cloistered from them when you were ready to return to first world civilization.

We stayed here for three nights prior to a trip to the Galapagos Islands. Most hotels in Quito appear to be located in the heart of the modern city. We wanted to stay in the World Heritage-designated historic part of the city, where there are fewer hotel choices. Based on reviews here and from other sites, we settled on Casa... More

Casa G is a boutique hotel in the middle of Quito's pretty old town. We stayed there and were warmly welcome as a gay couple. The hotel is beautifully decorated with a lush garden. We stayed in Terrace II which has a view across the Old Town and of the surrounding mountains leading up to the Virgin Statue. The breakfast... More

We were only planning on staying one night on our way back from the Amazon Basin, but our flight was cancelled so we ended up spending two nights.

This is a truly fine hotel in the heart of Quito. It offers both luxury and service - as well as a beautiful place to be.

Gorgeous renovation of a family palace on a principal plaza of Quito. Rooms were magnificently done, perfect service, and the restaurant is delicious. Be SURE to get to the roof to enjoy views of the city in every light, and Cotopaxi if you're lucky to get a super clear day!
