We spent the first three years remodelling La Casa Sol, always trying to remain loyal to the art and materials of the andean culture.
With its wide balconies, gardens, gorgeous windows and yard, La Casa Sol - Bed and Breakfast - offers to the international traveller a cosy lodge in this typical andean style hostel.
We spent the first three years remodelling La Casa Sol, always trying to remain loyal to the art and materials of the andean culture. Our pottery and woodworks are hand painted by artists from Cotopaxi, while the fabrics and textiles are hand made by indigenous people from the communities of Salasaca and Otavalo. The colourful and warm touch of La Casa Sol is what makes it so unique and why we are proud to open the doors and our hearts to the public.
La Casa Sol is considered part of Quito´s cultural patrimony. Years ago it was a residential home in "La Mariscal" the most popular neighbourhood for wealthy families. Today, Mariscal is a modern tourist centre with a variety of restaurants, bars, shops, art galleries and interesting streets and parkways full of colourful arts & crafts markets. Mariscal is not only where the embassies and consulates have their offices (US, France, Japan, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, and many others), but also where you can find beautiful handcrafts, paintings, carpets tapestries and sculptures made by talented local artists.
We invite you to visit our home, make yourself welcome, and remember... "La Casa Sol is your home".
