Villa Colonna

The perfect romantic hideaway located in the historic center of old Quito, this elegantly refurbished 19th-century manor has been transformed into an intimate (6 rooms) B&B. The designers have retained the traditional beauty and architecture of the space, highlighted by the use of antiques, while integrating modern conveniences – large flat-screen TVs, WiFi, rain showers in spacious bathrooms. The rooftop terrace offers spectacular 360* views of the city and surrounding Andean peaks. Just steps from the front door, the colonial center awaits, with the Presidential Palace, ornate churches, monasteries and convents dating from the 16th century, as well as a wide variety of restaurants ranging from casual to elegant, offering international cuisine as well as true local fare.
