Charming Illa Experience Hotel in the neighbourhood of artists

Tucked into a quiet street in San Marcos, a residential neighbourhood of Quito that has, for centuries, been home to a lively community of artists, musicians and writers, is a small luxe hotel that is big on character.

Typical of the Quito mansions of the early 20th century, the three-storey building has been restored with utmost care and precision, with each floor reflecting a different period – colonial, republican and contemporary – of the country’s history. Each of the ten guest rooms is individually and impeccably decorated with handcrafted furniture, 400-thread count linens, pillow menus and luxury toiletries, and views across Quito’s historic centre.

In addition to a wine cellar where tastings can be arranged, a spa for post sight-seeing pampering and a roof top bar with views of the iconic Panecillo mountain, the hotel is the new home of the award-winning Nuema restaurant, where Chef Alejandro Chamorro puts a fresh and innovative spin on traditional Ecuadorian ingredients.
