“An unexpected magical corner just around the corner from the airport!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Thanks to tripadvisor to help find these great off the beaten track locations such as Hascienda la Jimenita!
We stayed for two nights and would have made it our Quito base if we hadn't had prepaid reservations elsewhere.
The quality of hospitality is genuine, the food is good, the rooms Amasing and of course the star Francois, Diego's little French bulldog made our days extra delightful.
All in all a rare find so yes highly recommended!
Thank you Diego and Family.
We will be back next year! From the Costa Rica crew :)

Super nice place designed, built, and run by a family of architects. Beautiful landscaping, wonderful food, near-luxury rooms in a colonial style hacienda. We were there as a study abroad group and stayed a total of 4 nights I think spread out over 5 weeks time. Lots of activities, close to airport, yet you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Would definitely stay again if I go back there with my wife.

A massive thank you to Daniel, someone i would now call a genuine friend, for making us feel so welcome in his beautiful home. The place is super convenient to the airport making it the perfect spot to relax before heading onto the Galapagos or Amazon. The grounds are amazing, he even gave us a tree to plant there! You will love their family french bulldog too! Thanks again!!

My wife and I had three one-night stays at La Jimenita during a recent trip to Ecuador. We were in a different room each time, and all three rooms were large, distinctive and beautiful, with excellent bathroom facilities, including the all-important hot shower with good water pressure. Everything about this place is great -- the grounds; the food, the décor; the common areas (which are extensive, and include a lounge with a fireplace and another area with a pool table), and the friendly and helpful hosts, who speak English. If you are looking for a place to stay that is close to the airport (10-15 minutes, as opposed to the often hellish one hour plus ride into Quito), this is the place. For that matter, on our next trip to Ecuador, my wife and I will likely have a longer stay at La Jimenita, One tip: It's not easy to find (which I tried to do at night in a rented car with what turned out to be bad Googlemap directions), so I recommend that you arrange airport transfers through Daniel or Diego -- or get very good directions from them.

We booked one night when we returned from the Galapagos before we flew onto Lima. I wish we had spent more time at the hacienda outside of Quito. It has lovely grounds, some walking trails and could serve as a base for some day trips to other spots in Ecuador. We were met at the airport, we were able to get a supper even though we had not specified that we wanted one and they made sure we had our breakfast before the early morning trip to the airport. We will definitely be back.

We simply want to thank Daniel and his family for a beautiful experience! Russ and I will most certainly be back. Hacienda La Jimenita is an experience filled with fabulous food, wonderful sights, even a tree house with a fireplace in which to sip a glass of wine and watch the volcano.
The dirt road that takes you to this jewel disappears the second you get past the gates.
Airport pickup on two occasions and on a third they sent a driver to pick up our scuba gear to reduce our load on the way to Macchu Picchu.
Truly where you want to be as a lone traveler or as a family.
