Great Place in Colonial Quito!
You can't tell it from the outside (there is no sign), but once you enter this refurbished hacienda you are in a magical world. The room was large, spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. The rooftop deck is amazing for views, particularly at night. But what was most important was the warm, friendly greeting and service from the staff. Also, the taxi service they offer from and to the airport was excellent and cost the same as Uber or a regular taxi. The location is excellent if you want to spend some time exploring colonial Quito. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

From the moment I made our reservation, the great service from Hotel La Basilica began. Byron reached out and offered to arrange a variety of services, including airport transport, day tours, and Covid testing. We gladly accepted, and everything went very smoothly. Byron enthusiastically greeted us upon our arrival and helped us settle in. This is a family run business, and they could not be kinder. Miriam is a sweetheart, as is Oswaldo. They serve a nice breakfast, which they personally prepare. The hotel itself is incredibly charming and historic. The location, in the Historic District, could not be more convenient. Upon our departure, Byron and Miriam personally thanked us and said goodbye. A new home away from home. Thank for a wonderful time in Quito.

Very nice boutique hotel situated in the middle of the old city of Quito. The rooms have lots of artefacts. Mine was with the original ceiling and wood of the owner of the house from 1809. Seemed like frozen in time but very well maintained. Recommended.

We stayed at the Hotel La Basilica for four nights in early February '22 before continuing onto the Galapagos Islands. The hotel is perfectly situated for visiting all the major sites in Quito's historic center. The hotel is a beautifully restored colonial home, just 3-4 block from Plaza Grande and walking distance or a short cab ride from most others. The rooms were immaculately clean, and attractively furnished, mostly with antiques. Miriam and Byron, a mother and son team, manage the hotel and were especially attentive and helpful during our stay. The hotel serves a delicious breakfast each morning with fresh fruit, eggs, pastry, and some really great coffee! I highly recommend this property.

My wife and I were able to get a room through Expedia at this fine VIP or boutique hotel at a very reasonable price. Shortly after reserving a room, I had a very pleasant welcoming email from Byron, the manager and owner of the hotel along with a list of all the services they offer including transportation from and to the airport. This was when we met Jimmy (driver) and his wife and were taken to the hotel where we were greeted by Byron and later, his parents. The hotel is a building that used to be a private house 200 years ago. It was purchased and turned into the hotel by Byron and his family a few years ago. They designed and supervised the transformation into the 13 bedroom unique facility with 18 century design furniture. The rooms and lobby have frescoes done patiently by an artist and made the whole complex so colorful and joyous especially around holidays. Moving on from structure to the services the hotel offers. Each morning, we were met by Byron’s mother who made breakfast for us (included) of a large collection of tropical fruits, great coffee, some type of pastry and eggs prepared to your liking. The hotel doesn’t serve lunch or dinner but Byron will guide you to the local restaurants depending on budget and desire. The facility is very clean thanks to 2 pleasant ladies who kept the room so neat and clean daily. Overall, our 9 day stay was 5/5 in everything. We will miss the place and the family until we meet again.
