Comments from our clients

Ana C

It is a hotel located in an old restored house meters from the San Francisco church, right in the very centre of Quito. It is run by its very welcoming owners.
The rooms are decorated with very good detail and the whole house is like a museum .

I had an amazing time in Portal de Cantuña . The family is very friendly and are lovely people . The location could not have been better. Our stay in Quito would have been completely different (not so good) if we had to stay elsewhere!
