We could again expierence a big authentique room. We got as well a room with connecting doors. This gives added value to us as a family. A nice fireplace was warming up our room. I would have like it a little warmer to take a shower but I guess that is part of staying in haciënda's. The garden was beautiful.

La Cienega was a beautiful hacienda more than 300 years old. The hotel was very close to Cotopaxi Volcano and to the rose plantations. The hotel interiors were kept in original decoration. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The firespace in the room was working and it was effectively the main heater in the room. The food during dinner... More

When we approached the entrance of this hotel, it was as if this was a set from a romantic old movie. The long driveway was lined with eucalyptus trees. The hotel building was a grand old mansion from 1742. You could even visit their own chapel anytime of the day, the chapel itself was large and elaborate with pulpit and... More

Amazing old hacienda. 300yrs old as I understand. Fantastic buildings, located very close to the Cotopaxi volcano and the town of Latacunga. We found this place by chance. Wonderful place to stay, but not necessarily easy to find. Don't use google maps or waze to get there. It can get a little cold at night but there are electric heaters... More

A welcome change from your big business hotel in Quito. This place had a great deal of character and feels like it has many stories to tell. The rooms were large and spacious, the restaurant staff very kind and friendly despite either of us not being fluent. Things like wifi and hot water a little temperamental but to be expected...

This is a lovely old hotel with beautiful grounds. I wasn't feeling well so I didn't eat at the restaurant but my friends say it was good.

The room was well-kept and very large with a fireplace that my husband and I enjoyed. The grounds are a little run-down but still beautiful.

We enjoyed this and it is definitely an older hotel. The staff was okay and the food was overpriced, but our room was very nice. We loved the old charm and feel, but the view of the Cotopaxi volcano made this worth it! A jacket is needed at night and the heaters are necessary in the room. The water takes... More

An excel.lent spot to stay while visiting volcanoes as it allowes you to visit Cotopaxi and Quilotoa. The staff is gentle and the hacienda is peaceful and cozy. The restaurant is, however, overprized and the internet connection is a nightmare!
