I checked into Casa Gangotena, a former mansion in Quito – Review

I go head over heels for seriously gorgeous hotels, and Casa Gangotena, right in the heart of Quito, is blowing me away. In fact, this former mansion has compelled me to write a Casa Gangotena review.

First thing’s first: The former, 1500s mansion has a belle époque feel, gracious, old-world charm with courtyards, soaring ceilings, spiral staircases, and rooftop deck with intense views and really cozy, intricately detailed rooms. It’s super boutique (only 33 rooms), and the food is outstanding. While I’m just now here, expect a full Casa Gangotena review to come, especially with more photos. For now, check out the look and feel of this beautiful property.

The bar is insane. 

The bar is absolutely stunning. It feels like a time warp in a foreign era, but also rings with a familiarity you can’t put your finger on. It could be in the movie set of anything from James Bond to The Crown. For the full Casa Gangotena review, I’ll go into more detail.

My luxury-drenched room. 

My luxury-drenched room. They only had one of the standard rooms available the nights I checked in, but look at how spacious and beautiful it is for a standard. The marble bathroom had me at hello, and the floor to ceiling windows brought in a lot of sunlight.

View of the plaza from the rooftop. 

View of the plaza from the rooftop. For my full Casa Gangotena review, I’ll go into the details here. If you haven’t already check out my story on What you should see in Quito... you’ll see a familiar theme here. The views. Quito is all about the views.

Beautiful design throughout the hotel. 

Beautiful design throughout the hotel. I’m excited to write my Casa Gangotena review, so expect that to come soon, but if you’re looking to book a luxury hotel in Quito, this is the one.

By the way: My favorite Samsonite luggage is on sale on Amazon! Take advantage now. It’s lasted me forever, is durable and reliable and easy to travel with.
