An old mansion built at the turn of the last Century has
been completely restored in order to achieve the former splendor
of the Ecuadorian Republican era. The Mansion used to be the
home of an Ecuadorian tobacco tycoon, who entertained his guests
and buyers lavishly in the large spaces on the ground floor,
while he and his family utilized the first floor as their
property is part of the architectural historic Society of the
downtown area of the Capital according to the World Heritage
Foundation, which considered Quito to be the first city of the
organization according to UNESCO.
The Mansion as well as the
entire surrounding neighborhood was designed by an Italian
architect, who was influenced by the architectural style of his
native country. Many homes and private houses in this
particular area show the splendor and the excellent craftsmanship
of this bygone era.
Boutique Hotel Mansion del
Angel overlooks the well known Alameda Park. When
passing through the park, the historical part of downtown Quito
may be reached within 10 minutes. The park is also the home
of the first astronomical observatory.
A very detailed restoration
took place and only the finest building materials were used in
order to comply with the Art Society. The building itself
houses fifteen large, spacious and luxurious rooms and suites.
No two are alike, each one different in size, color scheme and
decoration. In addition to an inviting Reception Area, a
beautiful and comfortable Salon for relaxation is available, where
complimentary afternoon tea is served. Guests may enjoy
Breakfast on the ground floor, even those who must depart in the
very early morning hours. A lovely inviting garden awaits
our guests for outdoor relaxation and drinks prior to sunset.
We sincerely hope you will enjoy this jewel when your travel plans bring you to Quito and Ecuador.
