Dear Guest! We are a family with German origin and live in Ecuador for many years. We have worked in the hospitality business, managing a travel agency for a couple of years, now we run our own Wantara Suites.

Our service is flawless and we can help our guests by organizing all the little treats that make travelling easier.

We love to share our uniquely peaceful spaces with interesting people from all over the world. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your trip to Ecuador. We would be happy to host you!

Wolfgang Boerchers purchased this condo in 2006

Fascinated by the magic of the 'Old Town' where authentic Ecuadorian traditions are still alive and can be experienced in its streets and places, we decided that this is the place we want to live. After a year of extensive search we finally found this treasure. It took us three years to carefully renovate the place. We created seven independent units cautious of not loosing the colonial charm of the property. Art objects in the lush garden and cozy living spaces gives 'Wantara' a special flair.

Fabulous place to stay in Quito

My husband and I stayed at Wantara Suites for three weeks at the beginning of our stay in Ecuador and another week in March before returning home. We arrived on a late night flight and were very grateful for the airport pickup. When we arrived the suite was equipped with bread, cheese, eggs, sliced meat and all necessary ingredients for our first breakfast. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped down to a blender to make smoothies with the wonderful local fruits. The suites we were in were very clean and well kept. The photos in this listing are very representative of the place. Andi and Wolfgang were always very helpful in meeting any of our questions. They made us feel particularly welcome on the evening of our return to Wantara in March. It was a cool night and we arrived to our suite to find a fire had been made in the stove. They had also sent a taxi to the airport to meet us. It was truly a most welcoming experience. The garden space creates an oasis of peace. It was always a great place to return to after a day of exploring Quito. We would highly recommend Wantara Suites for your stay in Quito. If we return to Ecuador it will be our first choice.

Great Place to Stay Near Quito's Old Town

We prefer to stay in short-term apartments if we're spending more than a day or two in a location, and Wantara Suites is one of the finest rentals we've ever found. The suites are arranged around a pleasant garden, and everything, inside and out, is well-maintained. The suites vary in size and cost. We stayed in Colibri, a midrange unit in the main building. It had two rooms, a bedroom and a kitchen/dining/sitting area, plus a bathroom. The rooms were large, nicely decorated and up to modern European/American standards. There was a woodburning stove for cool evernings (we didn't need it), and a comfortable bed with down comforters and pillows. The wifi signal is strong enough to stream video. The owners, Wolfgang and Andi, live on-site and are companionable and knowledgable--Wolfgang is a former tour operator. Ask to see before-and-after shots of Wantara Suites to get an idea of what went into creating them. The suites are at the base of Panecillo and a 15-minute walk to the center of Old Town. Cabs are available at the end of the street if you need to go further. We would recommend Wantara Suites highly to anyone considering a trip to 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.

Best Choice in Quito

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!

Quito's colonial center is a UNESCO world heritage site. Our condo is located on historical Calle Loja which is mentioned since the time of the Incas. Towards the street we conserve impressive, 400 year old adobe walls, the main building dates back to 1904 and was used as suburban residence of a wealthy family.

The beautiful Plaza de Independencia, many churches, museums and calle 'La Ronda', with all its authentic gastronomic offers are just a short walk away.

Quitos eco-bus 'trole' stops right at the corner and/or the cheap taxi service get you to the modern city in 15-20 minutes.
