Quito's colonial center is a UNESCO world heritage site. Our condo is located on historical Calle Loja which is mentioned in the City chronicle dating back to the 16th century. Towards the street we conserve impressive, 400 year old adobe walls, the main building dates back to 1904 and was used as suburban residence of a wealthy family.

The beautiful Plaza de Independencia, many churches, museums and calle 'La Ronda', with all its authentic gastronomic offers are just a short walk away.

Quitos eco-bus 'trole' stops right at the corner and/or the cheap taxi service get you to the modern city in 15-20 minutes.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Dear Guest! We are a family with German origin and live in Ecuador for many years. We have worked in the hospitality business, managing a travel agency for a couple of years, now we run our own Wantara Suites. Our service is flawless and we can help our guests by organizing all the little treats that make travelling easier. We love to share our uniquely peaceful spaces with interesting people from all over the world. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your trip to Ecuador. We would be happy to host you!

Why the Owner Chose Quito:
Fascinated by the magic of the 'Old Town' where authentic Ecuadorian traditions are still alive and can be experienced in its streets and places, we decided that this is the place we want to live. After a year of extensive search we finally found this treasure. It took us three years to carefully renovate the place. We created seven independent units cautious of not loosing the colonial charm of the property. Art objects in the lush garden and cozy living spaces gives 'Wantara' a special flair.
