Description & facilities

La Cartuja is a charming and exclusive hotel. The hotel, which formerly was the site of Great Britain's embassy, is a neocolonial style house and it has a unique Spanish style green courtyard. There are only a few of these courtyards left in Quito and La Cartuja has been declared a cultural heritage site.

It took us over a year to restore the house. We worked to combine the traditional and sober style of the house with a cozy decoration. We chose pastel colours like yellow, blue and white to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere.

In addition, we designed all our furniture combining wood and Spanish ceramic to resemble the colonial times. We have put our hearts and souls into every corner and detail of the house so that when our guests visit, they feel at home.

All our rooms are spacious and enjoy natural light. They have white ceilings and moldings, and the original wooden floors from colonial times. Each has a private bathroom with hot water, telephone, TV and a safety deposit box.


The Restaurant serve delicious international and Spanish home made cuisine and 24 hours room service. The special breakfast La Cartuja includes bread, cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit, juices, marmalade and sandwiches.

In its cozy restaurant with large windows, spacious dining area and its adequately bar, you can admire the permanent painting gallery, while serve the famous breakfast buffet, including homemade bread, marmalade and granola, yogurt, ham cheese, fresh fruit and fresh tropical juice. At lunchtime and in the evening, the chef will prepare you excellent salads, fish, meat, traditional Ecuadorian and other Latin American specialties.
