Ecuador: Carlota Hotel, a renovated house in Quito’s Historic District has opened for business.
This property is described as the first urban-design boutique hotel in Quito’s Historic District and aims to become the first LEED certified hotel in Ecuador, as well as the first LEED certified design boutique hotel in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The hotel has 12 individual rooms each decorated in their own style, featuring L’Occitane products, a bistro offering fresh local dishes (run by chefs Juan Francisco Hidalgo and Felipe Moscoso, with assistance from chef Juan Sebastian Perez), a roof-top lounge offering gins and tapas, and an “urban garden” where the hotel grows local herbs and fruits used in the kitchen.
The hotel is located minutes away from important tourist sites like Plaza Grande, La Mariscal, and the La Ronda district.
Quito was recently recognised by the World Travel Awards as the Leading Tourism Destination in Latin America for the fourth consecutive year.
