Set on the outskirts of Quito in lovely surroundings, Hacienda Rumiloma is a charming property full of character, featuring a carefully blended mix of Ecuadorian and international features. Stunning views over Quito, Pichincha volcano or the surrounding Andean forest can be enjoyed from all of the rooms and throughout the common areas.
All of the suites are spread across the grounds, some in individual casitas, and are brimming with antiques and art from all over Ecuador. Cosy sitting rooms, spacious bathrooms and private terraces or gardens feature throughout.
The main hacienda building houses the restaurant which serves up a delicious menu of traditional Ecuadorian dishes with a hint of modern and international cuisine. There is also an Irish/Ecuadorian pub with a large open fireplace and comfortable seating, perfect for cosy evenings and enjoying a drink after a day of sightseeing.
Grazing llamas and a wide variety of native birds can be found in the neighboring national park, where a number of hiking trails are free to be enjoyed. Its position outside of Quito makes Rumiloma ideal for those who prefer to be a little closer to nature whilst retaining easy access to the city and its many attractions.
The six guest rooms can accommodate up to 13 guests and are overflowing with rustic charm - pot bellied stoves, colonial art, fluffy down covers and characterful bathrooms can all be found housed within the hand crafted walls of adobe and stone which were made in the area. All have inviting sitting rooms, spacious terraces or indoor gardens and beautiful views of Quito. No two rooms are the same and complimentary WiFi is provided in each, along with international direct-dial telephones, safety deposit boxes, seasonal fruit baskets and hairdryers.

When to go
Quito is a year round destination. Due to its position on the equator and its altitude, Quito’s temperature varies greatly between night and day. Daytime temperatures average 23-25ºC, while at night temperatures drop to around 10ºC. In general, days are clear in the morning and cloud over in the afternoon, with rain common in the afternoon. The drier season runs from the end of May to the end September, with another brief summertime in early December (which coincides nicely with the city’s fiestas).
