About Casa Gangotena
This stylish hotel with 31 rooms and suites is set in a renovated three-story mansion overlooking the lively and architecturally homogeneous Plaza de San Francisco, a site that has been occupied since the time of the Incas. The splendid interior combines art deco and postmodern styles. Junior suites feature high ceilings, tall windows, black-and-white veined marble columns, rich carpets, ornate moldings and dramatic art deco ceiling lights. Public areas include a glassed-in patio that fronts a delightful courtyard garden, a rooftop terrace with panoramic views on the third floor, an intimate cocktail bar and a wood-paneled library. The former ballroom of the Gangotena family is now a private dining room. Additionally, an elegant restaurant serves traditional Ecuadorian cuisine, and chocolate tastings led by the hotel chef are available.
