Swissotel is a smart contemporary property close to Quito's colonial centre.

The smart Swissotel is in a residential area a short drive from Quito's colonial centre. Its rooms are spread over 13 floors, most with views of the city and surrounding mountains including the nearby - but not too near - volcanoes of Rucu and Guagua Pichincha. At the centre of the hotel is a large outdoor swimming pool and sun deck. There is an excellent health club with sauna, Turkish baths and gym, to work off calories gained perhaps from the hotel's five restaurants. The Le Gourmet and the Tanoshi Japanese restaurant provide a benchmark for good food in Quito, and its café serves afternoon tea.

  • Ecuador is a wonderful country with much to see and do so often overlooked by those seeking to visit South America and that I now know is a big mistake.

Our Expert's Opinion

As is expected of the Swissotel brand, the Quito option doesn't disappoint. The rooms were well appointed and modern - request a room with a mountain view if possible - and the staff are eager to please. The highlight for me was the large swimming pool and spa which were perfect to enjoy after a day's sightseeing in Quito city.
