Excellent service and very comfortable rooms. Jacuzzi in rooms have very hot water and strong jets. The bottle of wine in the room was also a nice perk. The fresh roses each day were beautiful. Highly recommend it! Only the breakfast was a bit expensive for what they serve.

We arrived after a long international flight to be greeted with delicious blackberry smoothies and the warmest of welcomes. Our room was spacious and delightfully furnished with an amazingly huge jacuzzi bath. The staff were courteousness itself, and extremely helpful with directions for places to go and visit and for supplying us with our every need. The location was wonderful,...

We spent 5 nights at the Plaza Grande as a part of our visit to Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands. The staff were absolutely excellent, the rooms are large and the facilities met all of our needs! Centrally located in Old Quito, the plaza itself is a hive of activity. National Elections were a week away from our visit and...

This is a small boutique hotel in the center of the historic district of Quito. A perfect location and a beautiful old place. I understand that it is very expensive to stay there, so if you get a good deal, take it! We stayed elsewhere and had dinner there which was exquisite. Some of the group had the tasting menu,...

We had a very nice time here -- the place has a lot of character. Service was excellent, professional and attentive (helpful arranging cabs, early morning airport departure with breakfast, etc.), location in the heart of the old city was scenic and fun to explore. Room was spacious and comfortable. Would absolutely stay here again were I to return to...

Travel agent spoke glowingly about this hotel. Actually, it probably was once great. It is over decorated. Exceptionally large rooms, large windows covered by heavy layers of curtain. Lots of heavy old styled furniture. Lovely bed and bedding. Large bathroom, poor shower in gigantic bathtub. I didn't get the view I had asked my agent for, nor a balcony nor...

This historic boutique hotel on the old central plaza has preserved its unique features. Service was spectacular for my 6-day stay, as I experienced super-friendly attention to detail. The front desk helped me coordinate a tour of a museum, as well as satisfy any of my requests. All rooms are updated suites. I chose a room overlooking the central plaza...

It would be hard to beat the location. The old historic part of Quito is best explored on foot and the Hotel Plaza Grande and the beautiful plaza it sits on is nearly right in the middle of all the sights. The building itself is a beautiful, classic example of Old Quito during it's richest period. It has been well...

Perfect for the first few days on our honeymoon! For the unique character of the Plaza, I much preferred staying here to options in the "new" city. We could see the incredible surrounding buildings from our bed. Our large suite looked down onto the hustle of the plaza. There are many people in the square from 9 am to 7...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Plaza Grande rises above Quito's central square, known as the Plaza de la Independencia. It was one of the first hotels ever constructed in the capital, and has been extensively renovated and remodeled to become the finest boutique hotel in the city. It is the ideal place from which to explore the wonders of this timeless city. Quito was declared a UNESCO "World Heritage Site" in 1978, thanks to its historic center, which is the largest and best preserved in Latin America. The colonial center of the Franciscan city of Quito is a treasure trove of baroque art and architecture, including buildings, churches, monasteries and narrow streets that reflect Ecuador's unique blend of indigenous and Spanish cultures. ... more   less
