La Casona de la Ronda
The Latin America Travel Company Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★
Enjoying a fine location on a narrow cobbled street in Quito’s historic centre, La Casona de la Ronda is a quaint and charming hotel housed in an old colonial mansion. Surrounded by baroque churches, art galleries, independent shops and boutiques, this is a wonderful area to wander and soak up the atmosphere. The hotel is designed around a peaceful central courtyard and decorated in a homely and traditional style with hardwood floors and hand carved furniture.
Certainly the best of the mid range hotels in Quito, La Casona de la Ronda is a homely and characterful hotel in the heart of the old town
Rooms are cosy, welcoming and tastefully decorated with warm colours and quality furniture that makes for a comfortable stay. There are plenty of areas to relax including the impressive reading room located up a spiral staircase at the top of the hotel with spectacular views across the city. Plant pots can be found all around the property and there is a pretty vertical garden featuring orchids and many other types of native plants. For chilly nights there is a cosy lounge with a fireplace and an excellent bar and restaurant too.
