    The hotel is charming with plenty of unique touches to remind you that you’re staying at a converted colonial-era mansion. The location is unbeatable, close to La Ronda ‘restaurant street’ and Plaza Santo Domingo in Quito’s beautiful historical centre. The room is spacious and comfortable. Staff are very helpful and attentive to your needs. Highly recommended!

    It is a beautifully restored historical mansion transformed into a hotel just a few years ago. It is charming, and the people hosting are helpful and friendly.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The location of casa alquimia is just perfect. Right in the middle of the historic center and walking distance to lots of attractions and restaurants. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I would really recommend staying there. The wifi quality could be improved. it was hard to be only inside the rooms. Also make sure to ask for a room with a window. Apparently they have one or two that don't

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This is a beautiful Spanish colonial home straight out of Encanto. It’s right in the middle of the historic district. The family that runs it is absolutely marvelous. Great breakfast, very clean rooms and grounds, excellent service. NOTE: this is a several hundred year old building so there is no air conditioning or heat. Like all spanish colonial buildings, it keeps a steady temperature with very thick brick and limestone walls. We found it comfortably cool. There is no cable tv, microwave, fridge etc. For that go to the modern part of town. This a traditional, immaculate and lovely building steps away from all the historic sites. I would go back over and over.

    Gorgeous interior lobby decorated like a museum, comfortable and spacious rooms, with wonderful view from roof, great breakfast and lovely hospitality. We appreciated our host helping us schedule COVID tests on site to prepare for our flight to the Galápagos. You’re right in the middle of the colonial area - so many churches, plazas, markets and eateries right around the corner. Shower settings were a little tricky but we were patient and got good hot water. Would definitely stay here again.
