We loved our stay at casa alquimia! Staff were great, breakfast was delicious, and the house was beautiful! The only downfall for us was the noise on the street outside our window. We usually like to sleep in but it was noisy every morning around 6:30. However, would stay here again!!

This is a beautiful Spanish colonial home straight out of Encanto. It’s right in the middle of the historic district. The family that runs it is absolutely marvelous. Great breakfast, very clean rooms and grounds, excellent service. NOTE: this is a several hundred year old building so there is no air conditioning or heat. Like all spanish colonial buildings, it keeps a steady temperature with very thick brick and limestone walls. We found it comfortably cool. There is no cable tv, microwave, fridge etc. For that go to the modern part of town. This a traditional, immaculate and lovely building steps away from all the historic sites. I would go back over and over.

Gorgeous interior lobby decorated like a museum, comfortable and spacious rooms, with wonderful view from roof, great breakfast and lovely hospitality. We appreciated our host helping us schedule COVID tests on site to prepare for our flight to the Galápagos. You’re right in the middle of the colonial area - so many churches, plazas, markets and eateries right around the corner. Shower settings were a little tricky but we were patient and got good hot water. Would definitely stay here again.

10/10 Exceptional

This stay was a highlight of my S. America trip, for the simple elegance of the property and the wonderful hospitality of Silvana, Isaya, Lenin and the team. This Casa feels family-run, highly caring and full of guidance and recommendations for a stay in Quito. The rooms are spacious and clean with local design touches, and the large square atrium around which the rooms sit is decorated with carefully placed objects from this history of the building across centuries of ownership by families of different professions from legal to medical. And, there is a wonderful pride in the breakfast, served on a roof-top dining room. I had never been to Ecuador and glad Casa Alquimia was the first stop I arrived to, to settle in. I'm really grateful I stumbled on Casa Alquimia.
