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.

DO NOT MISS STAYING AT WANTARA GARDEN SUITES - QUITO'S UNDISCOVERED GEM

Do Not Miss Staying At Wantara Garden Suites - Quito's Undiscovered Gem
  • 5 of 5
Our family spent three wonderful nights at Wantara Suites. Our suite was perfect for a family of four and had a well-appointed kitchen and beautiful finishes. Wolfgang and Andi were fantastic hosts! Since we arrived late at night, they had thoughtfully provided breakfast for us to make the following morning, recommended their favorite restaurants in La Ronda and arranged transportation to Otavalo for us with their driver. The Wifi is great and our kids really enjoyed relaxing and reading their books in the hammocks on the open air patio. We can't recommend Wantara Suites highly enough.

LOVED IT

  • 5 of 5
I have been coming to Quito for 15 years and this is far and away the best place I have stayed at in the city. Andi and Wolfgang restored an old colonial building in a way that both preserves much of the original architecture and adds modern touches and comforts. It's simply a gorgeous place. Quito can be noisy and busy and yet coming back here after a long day was like retreating to a quiet garden oasis. It's in the old, historic district, so you are within walking distance to all the plazas, churches, and interesting things this part of the city is known for. You can also easily get to modern Quito--the trolley station is only a short block and a half away. Another wonderful thing about staying here is that you never feel as though you are separated from the life of real Quito--this isn't located in a tourist neighborhood, where you might only see tourists or the Ecuadorian elite. This is in a 'popular' neighborhood. School children come and go to school in the morning from the houses around you, people are out on the streets watching and discussing football matches, and you buy your beer or groceries from a corner store like everyone else on the street and get to know the shop owners by name. Andi and Wolfgang are also the best hosts. They live in one of the units and are always there to answer any question or help you with anything you might need. I have to say, too, that the beer and breakfast waiting in the fridge when you arrive was probably my favorite touch of all--it really gives a sense of the kind of place you're in. One last thing--I have stayed at other suite/ apartment places in Quito and usually have to buy something like a coffee maker or good knife or proper frying pan or whatever. Here, instead, you'll have everything you need, including small but important items like salt, pepper, fresh water, and so on, things that are annoying to buy when only staying for a short while (which you, appropriately, replace if they run out). I met many return visitors here during my stay and I'll be staying here the next time I come to Quito.

QUIET SANCTUARY FROM CITY

  • 5 of 5
We were only going to stay five days and we ended up staying 12 and felt sad to leave. Andi and Wolfgang have done a beautiful job with the property--comfortable, artistic, perfect. They were very helpful in many ways, always responding quickly to inquiries before our arrival and helping us, non Spanish speakers, get around. I would hope to return again soon and would recommend it to everyone. I feel lucky to have found this place Wantara, to spend time.

FABULOUS PLACE TO STAY IN QUITO

  • 5 of 5
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

Great Place to Stay Near Quito's Old Town
  • 5 of 5
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.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.
