A brand new sustainable luxury boutique hotel has opened in the heart of the bustling historic district of Quito, the capital of Ecuador.
The Carlota Hotel is located in a renovated house built at the turn of the century circa 1905 and is the first hotel in the country to be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certified by the US.
This authentic historical hotel boasts 12 individual rooms each decorated with their own bold and innovative style, a bistro offering fresh local delicacies, a roof top lounge from which guests can enjoy a drink overlooking the city’s stunning historical landmarks and heritage sites and a “urban garden” where the hotel grows local herbs and fruit used in the kitchen.
The hotel is conveniently located minutes away from important tourist sites such as: the ‘Plaza Grande’, ‘La Mariscal’, ‘Iglesia Santo Domingo’ and the vibrant ‘La Ronda’ district where tourists can find numerous restaurants, bars and markets.
Quito was the first city to be declared a UNESCO “World Heritage Site” in 1978 and was recently named the leading tourist destination in Latin America for the fourth consecutive year at the World Travel Awards.
