PERFECT BASE FOR EXPLORING QUITO
These apartments are located just outside the old city , beautifully renovated with artistic flare by the owners, who live on the premises and are always available to assist guests with any questions during their stay. A pick up was arranged for us from the airport and we were welcomed into our apartment with a warm fire and a cold beer in the fridge. Also items left for our breakfast the following morning. The apartments are set in lovely gardens which are there to be enjoyed by all guests, along with a bbq if you feel like cooking. The apartment more than lived up to our expectations from the information on their website and if we were in Quito again would definitely be booking with Wolfgang and Andi or recommending to friends if they wanted to stay in Quito.
Magical. Charming. A gem in the heart of Quito!
My husband and I spent four weeks in June at Wantara. Our unit was large (bedroom with queen bed, living area complete with kitchen, table and chairs and small sitting area with wood burning stove, couch and casual chair, and private bathroom.). Everything we needed was included-cooking utensils, linens, bottled water, cut wood for the stove, twice weekly cleaning with clean linens and fresh flowers from the beautiful gardens. Owners, Andi and Wolfgang, were wonderful hosts who provided touring and shopping recommendations. We have traveled the world and Wantara tops our list as one of our favorites.
We spent a month in Quito and were happy to have chosen Wantara as our home during our stay. We chose the Tortuga suite which has a double bed, kitchenette and bathroom and the space was adequate for the two of us. The cleaning and laundry service were all very good and the owners are a mine of information on Ecuador so whatever one may want to know they can always help. The overall service was very good and the owners highly attentive. There are several suites around a very nice garden area which creates a very pleasant environment for just sitting around and relaxing. The guests during our stay were from many different countries and one can interact as one wishes. If an internet connection is important, for us very important, then Wantara has a good system that worked well inside and out so no worries there. From Wantara it's possible to walk to the old city or take a taxi; we walked everywhere and felt safe without any unusual circumstances or situations.
If visiting Quito again we would certainly stay at Wantara once more and we'd recommend to anyone looking for a very functional place to stay that does't have the hotel type atmosphere.
This place is an absolute gem. Hidden behind a wooden portal in the colonial centre of Quito is a beautiful garden and a few lovingly restored apartments. The owners have made every effort to make you feel comfortable (Hint: there is a small electric milk frother in your drawer!). They live in a separate apartment on the property and are very helpful with any questions you might have or suggestions about tours throughout Ecuador. I don't think you will find anything close to that level anywhere else in Quito - highly recommended!
Oasis in Old Town
if you are looking for an extended stay in Quito you really can't beat Wantara Suites. It is truly a "Home Away" and a wonderful place to return to after exploring the city or taking excursions within Ecuador.You wake in the morning to songbirds and enjoy a fire on chilly evenings. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful which promotes good relationships with other guests there. We would strongly recommend Wantara Suites to anyone!
Wonderful Wantra the place to stay!!
What a cutie!!! Bar none our favorite place duriing our eighteen day tour of Ecuador.

This property fulfilled everything it promised and more. Thanks for a wonderful and delightful stay Andi and Wolfgang.
In the historic old town of Quito, at the foot of the 'Panecillo' viewpoint, hidden behind a thick wall of earth is a small residential paradise. A historic main building and an annexe with 800m² of garden are home to eight modernly furnished suites. Two minutes away from the Trolebus station (main line in the north-south direction), three minutes to Calle La Ronda, the most popular street of the old town, with many restaurants and pubs and ten minutes, all of course walking distance from the time-honored Plaza Sto. Domingo, Wantara Suites are quiet but yet completely central.
All the squares, churches and museums are within easy walking distance, so you can enjoy Quito's Old Town, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Small shops like bakery, vegetables etc. are around the corner, a supermarket is 15 minutes walk. A taxi takes you to Nordstadt with its modern shopping centers for about 3U $.
