Insider's View

If you are looking to dine out whilst in Quito, why not try the Theatrum Restaurant, near the Patio Andaluz. The décor and cuisine really pack a punch. Theatrum is a beautifully decorated restaurant located on the second floor of the Sucre National Theatre and built in the late 19th century.

Request the top floor patio area for dinner. With an expansive glass ceiling it makes the perfect place to gaze at the stars while enjoying a meal.

To start planning your vacation to Patio Andaluz


In the heart of Quito’s historic Old Town, just a stone’s throw from the city's main attractions, lies the simple but charming Patio Andaluz. This cosy hotel offers an authentic taste of colonial Quito with its classic courtyards and original artwork.

The delightful Patio Andaluz is situated within easy reach of Quito’s ornate colonial churches, plazas, museums and national monuments and is set in a historic mansion originally dating back to the XVI century.

Patio Andaluz is set around a beautiful central courtyard and its wide corridors, expansive stairways, large arches, picturesque balconies, and towering atrium-style patios give Patio Andaluz real character, reminiscent of Quito’s colonial period.

The comfortable suites and guest rooms are decorated in a typical colonial style and feature elegant carved wood furnishings and reproduction artworks. There are areas for relaxing dotted around the hotel, including the library and guests can also enjoy Spanish and local cuisine in the restaurant or some tapas and a glass of wine in the cosy bar.

Patio Andaluz has 21 spacious guest rooms and 11 suites. These are simply yet tastefully furnished in a traditional colonial style and have large beds and polished wooden floors. Some of the rooms are mezzanine style, with separate living and sleeping areas on two different levels, joined by a winding staircase.


Children are welcome at Patio Andaluz but there are no formal children's facilities. Babysitting can be arranged on request.


Patio Andaluz has a restaurant serving Spanish and local cuisine, a tapas bar, library and artisan shop. There are plenty of spaces for relaxing with hammocks and loungers.


Guests at Patio Andaluz are ideally located for exploring Quito's colonial quarter, with many churches, museums and historic buildings, all just a short walk away. It is also possible to take a ride on the cable car, for great views of the city and the snow-capped Andes, or an excursion to one of the colorful Indian markets in the highlands, such as Otavalo.

I felt that the Patio Andaluz really did have one of the best locations in the historic quarter of Quito and is well placed for seeing the city’s main attractions and for going out in the evenings to nearby restaurants. The hotel is set in a beautiful colonial building . The rooms all face out to an internal courtyard, which is slightly strange but completely understandable due to the layout of the historic building. There is a big window above the courtyard so the rooms don’t feel dark. I would say the décor in the rooms is quite paired down and could perhaps be jazzed up a notch but in terms of value for money and location in the heart of Quito it's hard to beat.
