Wantara Garden Suites, a manor house with buildings set in a beautiful garden in the middle of historic Quito, is apt to relax after exploring the city. Carefully decorated Suite Estrella (75 m2) is fully equipped without loosing its colonial charm.

Le logement

Fascinated by the magic of the 'Old Town' where authentic Ecuadorian traditions are still alive and can be experienced in its streets and places, we decided that this is where we want to live. After a year of extensive search we finally found this treasure. It took us three years to carefully renovate the property. Within the 15.000 sqft of the old historical villa with its gardens we created seven independent units cautious of not loosing the colonial charm but adding all the contemporary comforts. Art objects in the lush garden and cozy living spaces gives 'Wantara' a very special flair. A breeze from the Panecillo hill provides fresh mountain air and you sit outside, surrounded by flowers and enjoy the sunny Ecuadorian climate.

Accès des voyageurs

You are most welcome to relax in our peaceful garden area, use the gazebo and BBQ and harvest herbs for personal use. Our selection of board games, DVDs and books is waiting for you.
A Recreation Center ( Gym, pools, courts, etc ) is in 5 minutes walking distance.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We are a couple with German origin and have been living 28 years in Ecuador. Among other activities (landscaping & landart, biological water purification systems) we also have worked as a tour operator for a long time. Now we created Wantara Garden Suites, an example of restoring a historical property in Quito's old town.

We provide a professional service and can help our guests organizing all the little treats that make travelling easier and love to share our uniquely peaceful space with interesting people from all over the world.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your trip to Ecuador.
We will be happy to host you!

Autres remarques

We are located in Quito's historical center at Francisco Quijano OE1-144 (between Loja & Ambato roads). The neighborhood is San Sebastian and we are 3 blocks away from famous La Ronda (3 minutes walking distance) - this is also where you'll find the closest bus station called Cumanda - and 5 blocks away from Plaza Santo Domingo (8 minutes walk). The Main Plaza with the Presidential Palace is reached within 15 minutes walking. Taxi service is cheap in Ecuador and a taxi will take you for 1,5-2 US$ to the Main Plaza and for 4 US$ within 15-20 minutes to modern Quito. If you wish to take a cab from Wantara Suites, the best place to wait is at the corner of Calle Quijano and Loja, just in front of the small shop of Dona Gloria, where taxis pass by frequently. At night you can call some taxi drivers to pick you up at Wantara Suites (You will find the telephone numbers on your pin board).

Every suite has a private outdoor area and we have some shared garden space. There is the possibility of using a BBQ grill you will find the equipment at the gazebo. The garden is filled with herbs, medical plants and flowers. You are welcome to harvest respectfully for your own use.

Your rental includes a twice weekly room service (no dish-washing included). Cusumbo, Estrella, Tortuga and Colibri on Monday & Thursday. Mariposa, Sol, Luna and Lagarto on Tuesday & Friday.
Laundry service is only available on these days and has a cost of US$ 5 per load. Your clothes will be washed, dried and folded (not ironed; we have an iron and board which you can use, if wished). If you have clothes that are not appropriate to be tumble-dried, please advise our staff.

Tipping
If you would like to leave a tip for our service staff, please feel free to do so. You will find a tip box in your suite.

Ventilation
The Adobe buildings at Wantara Suites require a lot of ventilation. Please make sure to open your windows, especially after taking a shower.

Water & Septic System
The property is connected to the public septic system. This system is very effective, but will clog up if improper material as well as toilet paper is flushed. It is therefore very important to put toilet paper in the bins provided to avoid plumbing problems. This is a national problem and you will be asked to do so at most other places in Ecuador, including restaurants.
If it is found that improper materials have been flushed and clog the septic system, you could be charged for drain clearance and associated costs up to US $400.
Every suite has a water heating system that operates with gas tanks (as well as the kitchen stove). We check the tanks frequently, but please let us know if you run out of gas unexpectedly.

For your safety and security
Gates & Doors
The entrance gate is to remain closed at any time of the day and night. If you are expecting visitors, a taxi or another private transportation, please ask the person to ring your apartment bell when arriving. Using the intercom system, you should confirm that it is the person you are expecting before opening the gate. Under no circumstances give your keys to others.
The electric gate is opened and closed by pushing the button on the remote control. After closing the gate, please double-check manually that the locking mechanism at the bottom of the gate has closed properly.
Store the control in a place where it cannot be pressed accidentally. The control stored in pockets of narrow trousers or bags has opened the gate unintentionally in the past, without the guest realizing! The control works within a radius of 200 meters.
Very occasionally we may experience a power shortage; if this occurs the electric gate will not work. Only in this case you will have to open the pedestrian gate manually. The 2 keys are on the key ring for your suite.
When leaving the property please make sure that all the doors and windows of your suite are properly locked.

Taxi Service
When it gets dark, please use taxis for transportation, even for short distances, it is very inexpensive. Licensed yellow cabs from a company are safe but make sure they switch on the taximeter. Do not use a normal car pulling up next to you claiming to be a taxi and offering his services.
During daytime the price is 2 U$ and after 7 pm 3 U$ in the historical centre. To the Mariscal area it is about 4 U$ during daytime and 5-6 U$ at night. If you wish to take a cab from Wantara Suites, the best place to wait is at the corner of Calle Quijano and Loja, just in front of the small shop of Dona Gloria, where taxis pass by frequently. At night you can call Marcelo our driver, neighbour and housekeeper and you will find telephone numbers of other taxis on your pin board. In case of early or late departures or arrivals (after 6pm and before 8am) a private transfer through us is mandatory, the driver does the check in and check out. Please contact us for more details and price.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Please do not hesitate to ask for our recommendations. We have lived in this country for many years and have done it all. We really don't mind you asking. Take advantage of our experience.

Wolfgang & Andi have thought of every detail to make your stay in Old Town Quito comfortable, relaxing, and worry-free. Their thoughtfulness made even our late night arrival to Quito (past midnight) a seamless experience. Their driver met us at the airport and drove us to Wantara where Andi and Wolfgang had stayed up to meet us and get us acquainted with our suite. The suite itself was extremely comfortable for the four of us (two in the bedroom upstairs and two in the twin beds in the living room). Andi knew we had an early morning the next day so she had stocked our suite with eggs, bread, cheese (even some beer), so we would not go hungry. She also showed us how to start a fire in the wood burning fireplace in case we got cold, but we found the temperature in the suite pleasant both nights we were there so we did not have to use it. Wantara's location is excellent, with all of the key attractions of the Old Town within walking distance. For farther destinations like Mitad del Mundo or the Teleferico, it is easy to catch a taxi on the corner just down the street. The taxis are cheap and efficient means of transportation. You will not regret staying at Wantara Suites. It is a garden oasis in the middle of a lively & exciting city. We would not hesitate to return here next time we are in Quito!
