Boutique Hotel Café Cultura in Quito is a delightful mix of English tradition and contemporary trend. We consider ourselves an inner city retreat, with an out-going personality and inspirational food. Some sixty years ago, the hotel was home to one of Quito's oldest families, after which it became the French Cultural Centre. The building was carefully restored over a period of four years, with special detail given to maintaining the unique characteristics of the original interior. The house is hemmed by a beautiful garden, with secluded seating areas for relaxing -- or watching our resident hummingbirds do their thing.
So don't be shy, come in and discover for yourself why Condé Nast Traveler magazine listed Café Cultura as one of the three reasons to visit Ecuador!
Single & Matrimonial
To be able to travel alone requires a very special attitude towards life and therefore in Café Cultura we have created very unique rooms catering especially for the single traveller, rooms which embrace you and make you feel at home, even though your own home maybe on the other side of the world. Each room features a very comfy queen sized bed.
Double & Twin
Perfect for those who like to travel with friends and family, designed in a cosy and spacious way our twin rooms feature two very comfy single beds or a queen and a single bed.
These very unique rooms are suitable for those that are travelling with company. Each room features 3 very comfy single beds, with the exception of room 7 which offers a queen and a single.
These very special rooms are designed to cater for the travellers looking for a different experience during their journeys. They are spacious and each one of the bathrooms is indeed a feature.
From the reception area an open-gallery staircase leads to 15 of our 26 bedrooms. Each room has been individually designed in keeping with the style of the house and has its own en suite bathroom. Different artists have painted modern frescoes throughout the hotel, adding to its already unique style.
Once inside, you will immediately be seduced by the overall atmosphere of conviviality: the perfect mix of home comfort, the right level of discreet service, plus our own touch of eclectic culture. Indeed, while all of our rooms have individual features, some are more special than others with their own fireplaces, or perhaps a sunken bath. Our honeymoon suite boasts its own balcony - a conservatory converted into a dream-like bathroom with an antique tub.
Ever since its opening, the unparalleled bistro-style cuisine at Café Cultura has become legendary among locals and foreigners alike. The flavours of freshly baked breads, home-made jams, pastries and more never fail to delight the palate of our clientele, whose sense of taste and style motivates our staff to create masterpieces daily.
