This elegant boutique hotel is a hidden treasure in the Ecuadorian capital of Quito, housed in a 16th century colonial house, just 500 feet (150m) from the Plaza Grande or Plaza de la Independencia. It’s one of Good Life Expeditions top recommendations for a Quito hotel and we’re confident you’ll enjoy your stay there. Here’s why.
Hotel Patio Andaluz
The central location makes Hotel Patio Andaluz the perfect base for exploring the historic city of Quito, the first city to be protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s just a few minutes’ walk from many of the attractions of the historic city center. And the hotel itself is also UNESCO protected – declared a Cultural Patrimony of Humanity by the organization in 1978.
The 32 rooms and suites are decorated with warm colors and beautiful hardwood floors and ornate period furniture – offering real colonial charm and sense of place. There are standard doubles and larger duplex suites which offer split-level accommodation with a separate living room. Internal balconies overlook the beautiful courtyard below. All rooms feature cable TV on flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, safety deposit boxes, en-suite bathrooms and more.
Guests can dine at the on-site restaurant, El Rincón de Cantuña which serves up Spanish and local Ecuadorian cuisine in the beautiful surrounds of the central courtyard. For something more relaxing and casual, head to the Cava Marquéz de Jerez tapas bar, perfect for a relaxing drink and light bite from the tapas menu.
