|Situated in the heart of the old historic center of quito, ecuador (south america) and surrounded by churches, museums, and national monuments, the hotel patio andaluz is a marvelous building of colonial origin, which offers every guest an experience not unlike returning back in time. The walls whisper their stories of rich antiquity, while more contemporary furniture speaks of progress and comfort. From delicately ornate arches and wide corridors to romantic balconies and towering attics, the hotel patio andaluz is an architectural feat that begs the attention of the eyes, and tugs at the heart.
guests will enjoy spanish and local specialties in the hotel restaurant, as well as in the tapas bar. Other attractive features include a comfortable hotel library, a relaxing spa treatment area, and an artisan boutique. The guestrooms are distinguished and inviting, with hard wood floors, vaulted ceilings, original works of art and fresh picked flowers. A careful juxtaposition of 16th century architecture and modern amenities is a difficult task, however the hotel patio andaluz demonstrates a tremendous capacity for succeeding in this regard. All guestrooms feature colonial spanish style headboards, entertainment armoires and chiffoniers, each replete with individual character and alive with tradition. Latin work desks with antique lamps, color televisions, and large windows provide feelings of warmth and familiarity in a home like manner that few hotels can replicate.
