Casa Gardenia Hotel in Quito


I usually take a lot of time researching hotels when I go on holidays, but it can still be hit or miss. But the Casa Gardenia Hotel in Quito really deserves a blog post.

Casa Gardenia is located in the historic heart of Quito and housed in a renovated colonial building itself. The streets it's on, is a bit steep, so you might feel a tad bit out of breath, especially since Quito is located at 2,780M above sea level.

There are only seven rooms surrounding one of those typical Andalusian patios, the Spanish imported when they colonised South America. The decor is quit modern with earthy tones, giving guests that home away from home feeling.




Breakfast is laid out on the first floor and consists of lovely local fruits, yogurt and cereals. There are croissants, cakes, cheeses and cold cuts, and you can have eggs too if you want.

On the second floor, you'll find a comfy sofa where you can chill and have a coffee while taking in the view of pretty much the entire city.

I stayed here twice during my holiday and the first room was window-less, but had two doors looking out onto the patio. Which was better as the second room had a little balcony looking out onto the street, which got a bit loud during the night.

Beds were comfy and no funny business with wooly blankets and sheets, which I encountered at all the other hotels I stayed at in Ecuador.

The shower was a bit fickle as I only managed to get hot water twice, but that seems to be an issue throughout the country. And if you want to wash your hair with warm water every day, you should stay home, right?

The staff was super friendly and helpful, and really look after your every need. If ever I were to come back to Quito, I will definitely stay at Casa Gardenia again.
