We stayed here three times during our recent travel trip to Ecuador and it was fabulous to keep coming 'home' in between our various trips to somewhere so comfortable and friendly. The room was enormous, the bed very comfortable, the decor of the whole place amazing. We loved the view from the rooftop terrace. Unfortunately we made the mistake of only dining once in the hotel as we had been recommended lots of restaurants to try in the old town. Believe me, the restaurant in the Casa Gangotena is the only one worth eating in and I wished we'd stayed put. The food is superb and no more expensive than many others.
The General Manager took the trouble to come and chat to us several times during our stay and many of the staff called us by name which is always nice - particularly on return visits.The location is great for exploring the old town. Although some of the guidebooks say it's not safe to be out at night we had no problems - the old town has been massively cleaned up over the last few years and there are plenty of policemen around to provide reassurance. Why stay in the new town in a concrete block when you can experience part of the history of Ecuador in this beautiful hotel? I would highly recommend it.

We stayed at Casa Gangotena for three nights. The property has been lovingly restored and is in a perfect location for visiting the old city. The only problem is that your visiting is confined to the daylight hours as the historic area is not very safe at night.

We stayed at the Casa Gangotena before and after our trip to the Galapagos and I can say I have never stayed in a more beautiful hotel. The mansion that houses the hotel has been lovingly restored and the modern decor and furnishings give it an eclectic and contemporary flair. The hotel exudes a calm and serene ambience in its elegant atmosphere. The guest rooms and bathrooms are impeccably clean and tastefully decorated and the staff is truly welcoming, professional, courteous and efficient. We had breakfast there each morning and the food was beautifully presented, fresh and delicious.
We were a group of women traveling together and one of the evenings when we were staying at the hotel, we returned from dinner about 11 PM and went over check out a concert that was going on at the plaza across the street from the hotel. I noticed a security person following us to the plaza and realized that the hotel had sent a security guard to accompany us. While nothing happened, we were so grateful to the hotel for ensuring our safety in the city that evening.
I would highly recommend Casa Gangotena to anyone lucky enough to visit the beautiful city of Quito

Although fairly new, this hotel ranks quite highly on our list of places to stay. The staff was very accommodating and helpful and the location is excellent. We stayed here both on our way to and our way back from the Galapagos with both visits being prepaid. Once I had checked out the first time I noticed that they had overcharged us on the room. (Shame on me for not noticing earlier but we left very early in the am for our flight.) When we checked in the second time we pointed out the error and it was fixed without issue. We would certainly stay at the Gangotena again.

Restaurant is great! It is nicely decorated, staff is extremely helpful, food is very good. Even though it was late evening the hotel staff were willing to offer a site inspection of the rooms and public areas which are nicely decorated!
