Peaceful Suites with Beautiful Gardens in Historical Quito -

My partner and I found out about Wantara Suites soon after we arrived in Quito. I've lived in Ecuador and usually stay with friends when I visit. I had never spent much time in the Centro. When a friend told us about Wantara, we were excited to check it out.
Wolfgang and Andi were warm-hearted, gracious hosts -- they were very friendly and had great information about anything we needed to know. And my partner kept saying, "They've thought of everything." The place is gorgeous, lovingly created and cared for, everything worked great. And Andi and Wolfgang made it super special. We're thrilled to have found Wantara and look forward to going back.
My daughter and I spent a week at Wantara while visiting Quito in December 2013. Wolfgang and Andi were wonderful hosts and we immediately fell in love with our apartment! The property is beautifully renovated, situated in the historic district of Quito with adobe walls, cobblestone streets with La Ronda and the Plaza Grande just a short walk away. I have used VRBO in 5 different countries and I can say that Wantara is the best stocked kitchen of any place I have stayed in! Because we arrived late at night they had a small bit of food waiting in the fridge for both an evening snack and a light breakfast. It was perfect!! I also cannot stress enough that you should totally trust Wolfgang and Andi on their recommendations for tours and transportation. The new airport at Quito is beautiful, but it's an hour from Quito (45 minutes in light traffic) and it was a relief to us to have someone meet us and get us to the apartment. But beyond that, our driver Jaimie and his wife Angela are excellent tour guides. I wish I'd known about them before I'd booked a couple of day trips because I would have used them exclusively. But back to Wantara Suites...Andi and Wolfgang have gone out of their way to include so many details that make this place feel like a home. I would go back to Quito just to stay there! Anyone who makes this their choice in Quito will not be disappointed. Your stay at Wantara will be the best memory of your time in the city.
Our first trip to Ecuador was fantastic and Wantara Suites with owners Wolfgang and Andi played a huge part in making this a memorable trip. From the time that we booked our suite(Colibri)to the day of our departure, all of our needs were met and more. Wantara located in Historical Quito, is situated so that your are close to resturants, shops and many sightseeing attractions within walking distance. Yet the actual compound is a beautiful park like oasis and is very relaxing after a day out in the city. Taxis are just a few steps away and bus service is close by as well. Our suite was spacious, very clean, plenty of hot water, kitchen was well equipped, great bed and bedding also had a woodstove to take the chill out of the night air. Wolfgang and Andi have lived in Ecuador for many years and have a wealth of information which they are willing to share with their guests! We would like to give a big thank you to Wolfgang whom took time out of his days to make arrangements prior to our arrival for a trip to the coast with some friends of his, connecting us with Angela and Jamie(letsgotoecuador.com) who took us on day trips out of Quito and for setting up our airport transfers to and from. It made our trip worry free from start to end!
We HIGHLY recommend the airport service which is a little higher than a regular taxi, however very worthwhile in the end! Our flight was delayed and we arrived late at night, it was comforting knowing that there was someone waiting to take us to Wantara. Angela was there waiting patiently with a sign and big smile! She has a key to the property so she came in and showed us to our suite and let us know that due to our late flight that Wolfgang/Andi had placed enough supplies in the kitchen for us to have breakfast in the morning. There was coffee, tea, bread, milk, eggs cheeses and coldcuts waiting for us, this was greatly appreciated after the long journey there. Angela and her husband Jamie also drove us back to the airport in plenty of time for our return flight home.
When we come back to Quito, we will definitely be staying at Wantara and using all the great services that they recommend. The place is everything that is advertised and more. Welcoming, clean and secure. Can't wait to return!
Thank you again Wolfgang and Andi for sharing your little piece of heaven!
Stayed here for a month in July and couldn't have been happier. Had a great suite with a view, nice kitchen, plenty of space, wi-fi and great shared outdoor space. Listing description was accurate. About 1.5 blocks from trolley stop. Felt very safe. Wolfgang and Andi were fantastic hosts and very helpful with setting up rides and local recommendations. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Quito!
I'm a nomadic traveller, I've stayed in countless properties in 17 countries and counting. Wantara Suites is simply one of the best. Andi and Wolfgang are gracious, delightful hosts. The property is like a magical secret garden, and the suites are zen-like, peaceful and comfortable. The kitchens are well-equipped, the showers are hot, the comforters and pillows are fluffy. Small shops and bakeries selling everything you need surround the property, and it's an easy walk to Plaza Grande for the Sunday festivities, to La Ronda for Friday night dinners, or to the trolebus to get anywhere in the city for a quarter. I've stayed twice now and hope to return someday.
Andi is an artist who has lovingly restored this property and garden, and Wolfgang is a former tour company operator who knows the Quito area and excursions and can advise you on any aspect of your stay. They are both charming, available, and multilingual.
My husband, 12-year old daughter and I spent 4 nights in the Lagarto Suite. Andi and Wolfgang are delightful hosts beginning with the driver that met us at the airport, to the first morning breakfast waiting in our refrigerator, to the peaceful garden oasis they've created behind the adobe walls of their property. They were also very helpful with advice on things to see and how to get there. The Lagarto Suite is one bedroom plus a pull out couch in the living room. It is spacious and cozy all at the same time. We thoroughly enjoyed coming home to it each afternoon after a long day of sightseeing.
Our family of four stayed in two adjoining condos for a week in June 2013. This property is located in the historic district of Quito and has been wonderfully restored with comfortable, attractive rooms surrounding a gorgeous garden. Our bedroom had a beautiful view of the city. Wolfgang and Andi are warm, helpful, and generous hosts. They arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport, which was very helpful as we arrived at night, and the new airport is a distance from Quito. The beds were comfortable, the showers hot, purified drinking water was supplied, and the kitchen was well-equipped. There is a nice central gazebo area if you want to have lunch, read, or lie in a hammock and just relax in the garden area. Close walking, bus or taxi distance to the large Centro Historico district of Quito. Very highly recommended!
My husband and I are in love with this property. It is a little slice of heaven carved into a big city. The vision was Andie's. She has the warmth of a great hostess, and the eye of an artist. She and her husband Wolfgang are gracious, and genuinely love what they do. Whatever you could want - beautiful gardens, romantic surroundings, location, cozy fireplace, luxury bedding, views, WiFi - it is all there. You MUST stay here if you are in Quito - especially for the price!
I have been going to Quito for 12 years and stayed in many different places. This is the only place I will stay from now on. The location is truly stunning. The owner, Andi, is a true artist and has done an absolutely incredible job with the landscaping and decoration. There is also a beautiful view of Quito. The units are amazingly well equipped, with every kind of cooking utensil you could think of. We even grilled on their bbq! Every suite has a wood burning fire to keep you warm. The internet connection is super fast and reliable. The suites are very secure, and in easy walking distance to La Ronda. It is also easy to get a taxi into the new town. Wolfgang and Andi are so friendly and helpful, and can give a lot of good travel advice. Wolfgang even got up at 2.30 am on the day we left for the airport to make sure we could get all of our luggage into the taxi. Very highly recommended.
