Real Audiencia is a relatively small, classic-style hotel right on the main square of historic Quito. 

The Real Audiencia has a marvellous location overlooking Quito’s stately Santo Domingo square. Built in 1950, it displays a classic style which fits harmoniously with the colonial buildings nearby.  There are 31 wooden-floored guest rooms, all with a warm and homely feel, with sturdy wooden furnishings and cosy mellow yellow and gold décor. (Guest rooms are distributed over three floors and there is no lift). 

The hotel’s greatest asset, perhaps, is its top floor restaurant, from which you can look out over the comings and goings on the plaza. The hotel also accepts business conventions and there’s access to the internet and Wifi.

Our Expert's Opinion

Well-situated in Quito’s historic quarter this hotel has a breakfast room overlooking the square below so you can see the hustle and bustle as you drink your morning coffee. Rooms are simple but comfortable and the pedestrianised street with plenty of restaurants is just a short walk away.
