The most incredible hospitality from Mario and Blanca. The hotel is a sanctuary from the busy old town. Beautifully appointed room with access to a rooftop balcony to view the surrounds of Quito and the winged Virgin Mary. The hotel is absolutely spotless and well maintained. We had a wonderful breakfast each morning which set us up for the day. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here for 2 nights before a Galapagos trip. The first thing I want to mention is the great service by Mario and his wife. We needed to send various things (wetsuits, cameras) there ahead of time, and Mario was incredibly helpful. They are such a lovely couple. This is very much a boutique hotel (for example, it does not provide dinner) but very sweet and with lovely rooms. It's also well positioned close to the old town. Thanks so much for looking after us Mario!

Gorgeous hotel in a beautiful location, a true oasis. Mario and Blanca are the most welcoming hosts, catering to your every need and making you feel right at home. The rooms are imbued with history while having modern amenities - the perfect balance. Breakfast was heavenly! We loved Casa El Eden and know exactly where we will stay when we return to Quito - can't wait.

The best hotel in Quito without a doubt! Mario and Blanca are exceptional hosts and nothing is too much of an ask (at any hour!). I initially booked before my trip to the Galapagos and I ended up returning for my final night in Ecuador as I loved my stay so much. The building is beautiful, in an excellent location in the historic centre and the room I had (Chirimoya) was spotless with the comfiest bed ever! Also - delicious breakfast :)

This boutique hotel sits in the middle of historic Quito & within walking distance of many of the tourist attractions & eateries. Booking on the website was easy and arrangements were made to have a driver pick my husband & I up at the airport. I believe the cost was $35. Mario greeted us upon arrival and helped settle us into our room. Our room was spacious and lovely. The bed & pillows were comfortable. It had 2 french doors that faced the street. We had requested this room specifically. After realizing that the small street was actually noisy, we would have chosen a room facing the quiet courtyard. Mario made arrangements for all of our dining reservations, taxis, guides and other special requests. Always with a smile. Breakfasts were lovely and included healthy choices as well as eggs cooked per request. Mario & Blanca accommodated our early excursion departures by providing early breakfasts. The hotel was very clean, well-maintained and attractive. Daily maid service.

Our stay at Casa El Eden was our favourite of our time in Ecuador. The hotel is incredibly peaceful and beautiful hidden away very close to the old town. Mario and his wife are amazing hosts and made our stay extra special and the complementary breakfasts was excellent too. Couldn't recommend this hotel enough, we will definitely be back next time we're in Quito!

Treat yourself to this bespoke 6-room, 3-storey luxury boutique hotel conveniently located in the heart of historic "old town" Quito, just steps away from Plaza Grande, the Basilica, restaurants and museums. This architecturally restored heritage house will leave you spellbound: artistically finished with so much detail, charm and character. Take some time to walk around and explore the building. The photos of the property don't do it justice. The healthy, sumptuous breakfast is not to be missed. Filtered water is available for your refillable bottle and a roof-top terrace yields southern views towards El Pancillo across the rooftops. Moreover, the personal hospitality provided by the hosts Mario, Blanca and Daniel is beyond compare. No request is too big for them to graciously undertake for you. Their warm welcome, assistance and advice are genuine without being intrusive. You'll truly feel "at home" here and treated like family. Should we be fortunate enough to return to Quito, this is undoubtedly where we'll stay again.

Casa El Eden was the perfect place for our 2-night stay in Quito. Mario and Blanca were so welcoming and helpful during our entire stay and went above and beyond. The location is great for central Quito, you're in walking distance to everything you'll want to explore. Do note that this is a building in the middle of the city; the building is very well-insulated from noise when the windows are shut but if you open them you'll hear the people and cars. We loved our stay here and would certainly recommend it!
