The Ilha Experience hotel occupies a fantastic location on Calle Junin, a pretty street lined with museums and multi-coloured colonial buildings, in the bohemian neighbourhood of San Marcos. Quito’s historic main plaza and many of the city’s top sites are just a five minute walk away. The hotel is housed in a building that originally dates from 1700 and was subsequently updated in the 1920’s. Now re-born as a luxury hotel, each floor of the property has been designed to reflect a different historical period.
