Imagine staying in a gorgeous converted historic home in the heart of Quito.
Well, you can. Just book yourself a room at the Hotel Patio Andaluz and enjoy what feels like living history.
In what was once a private, sixteenth century home, the hotel offers comfort and all the modern conveniences needed to all guests.
This Boutique Hotel offers a maximum capacity of a 63 guests, 11 suites and 21 rooms, so you know it will be fairly quiet.
The warmth of not only the décor, but also the wonderful staff, will make you feel welcome, as if visiting a dear friend.
I was stunned when I was taken to my room, as it sat alone on the top floor, when the door opened and I saw two walls of window with the most spectacular views!
Located to less than 500 feet from the Main Square also known as the Independence Plaza, you are within walking distance of many sites and shopping. It is a lovely area to go for a walk and take in the sights and sounds of Quito.
I enjoyed my stay there immensely and hope to visit again. The staff was wonderful, friendly and helpful and the property itself was stunning.
