Suite Colibri in historic Quito with a fantastic garden
average rating of 5.0 based on 13 reviews


  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

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.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

An oasis in the city.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Wantara Suites for a month, the last part of our two month stay in Ecuador, using it as a base to explore Quito and the surrounding areas. We chose it on the Internet and easily made our booking on line with Christina Ring.

My wife was a little apprehensive about what we would find when we got there, having no means of verifying that what was advertised about the place was in fact true. To our delight, Wantara was everything we hoped it would be and more.

Both of us prefer country living but we decided to use Quito as a base to travel to other locations in the north central part of Ecuador. Although Quito is a big, noisy, and busy place to be, we found Wantara to be a haven, an oasis of peace in the old city where you could relax and find some relative peace, quiet, and security from the bustling city.

It is only a easy 15 minute walk from Wantara to the Grand Plaza and the Historical Center, with all it's interesting museums, churches, colonial buildings, restaurants, and shopping.

Our suite, Sol, was delightful with a fully equipped kitchen, a wood stove to take off the night chill, a large airy bedroom with views of the mountains and parts of the Historic Center, and a good sized bathroom with plenty of hot water. The front balcony of our suite was a great place have have a meal and be able to meet and talk with fellow travelers staying at the suites about their experiences, to exchange ideas about traveling and living in Ecuador.

Our hosts, Andi and Wolfgang were delightful, they provided us with advice and information that was extremely helpful to us in planning our excursions to Otavalo, Banos, and the Galapagos Islands. Having lived in Ecuador for many years, they have extensive knowledge and experience that was invaluable to us.

We both would highly recommend Wantara Suites as a great place to stay.

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 $.
