Patio Andaluz is a luxurious boutique hotel located in the heart of historic “Quito Antiguo,” the beautifully preserved colonial section of the city declared a World Heritage Site in 1978. The charming hotel occupies an original 16th-century house near Independence Plaza and the famous gilded La Compañia church. The many museums and monuments of Ecuador's capital are steps away on the centuries-old cobblestone streets. The hotel, which still exudes all the atmosphere of its historic origins, features 32 guest rooms complemented by distinctive balconies, archways and courtyard patios throughout the property. Each room is beautifully appointed with hardwood floors, custom artwork, en suite baths, writing desk, cable TV and wireless Internet. Public spaces include the Cava Bar, library and El Rincón de Cantuña restaurant, which offers fine dining featuring Ecuadorian, Spanish and classic continental cuisine.
