||Ecuador Boutique Hotels|
The Mansion del Angel is an old mansion built at the turn of the century (1908) that has been completely renovated and turned into a small, intimate and exclusive boutique hotel on a "bed and breakfast" basis. It is located in the "Los Ríos street N13-134 y Pasaje Ascencio Gándara" neighborhood of Quito, which is considered the city's traditional center of culture and gastronomy.
We are located approximately 20 minutes from the international airport.
The front of the building, though well kept, does not do justice to the grandeur of the inside. There is a wall around the front of the residence so you do not really get the full picture until you go through the front gates. Once inside, you're treated to a courtyard full of flowers, potted plants, small trees, and a fountain with running water. The entranceway to the home is beautiful. All furnishings are in a Victorian style, including ornate chandeliers, marble tiling and hardwood floors. This creates an elegant atmosphere. One of the two main sitting areas off of the lobby has a fireplace, and guest can use this room to relax, read or enjoy a complimentary Ecuadorian tea (which is offered upon arrival).
The Mansion's elegant interiors feature fine wood paneling, gilt crown moulding and wooden parquet floors covered with oriental carpets. A chandelier-lit stairway leads you upstairs to beautifully decorated rooms with antique four-poster beds. A full American breakfast is included, served in the elegant parlor or on the tile terrace. Museums, restaurants, and shops are steps away.
Mansión del Angel feels more like a friend's home than a hotel. In fact, after you stay here for a few days, you will probably meet the owner, who will indeed become a friend. Everything here comes with a personal touch. The staff distributes fresh flowers throughout the hotel daily, so everything smells lovely.
Just a few minutes away from the hotel within a walking distance you will find:
There are 10 guest rooms, all feature - cable TV, modern telephones, large bathrooms with large shower, amenities, hairdryers, bath robes.
Rooms are decorated with a large bouquet of fresh flowers, and the furnishings are similar to the rest of the hotel. A Persian-style rug gives the room a rich, elegant feel. The bathrooms are not especially spacious; none have tubs, yet they have a very large shower (five feet by three feet) with glass doors to the ceiling making for a hot steamy shower. The overall feel of the room is very romantic, with the four poster bed and flowers overlooking the mountains.
The larger rooms on the top floor have a separate sitting area. Since the rooms in the back of the hotel don't face the street, they are a bit quieter. The breakfast, served on the enclosed rooftop terrace, includes freshly baked breads, and at night, the smell of baking bread permeates the entire hotel. Delicious!
