    Home to Latin America’s most well-preserved historical district and honored multiple times by the World Travel Awards as the region’s top destination, Quito, Ecuador is a fast-rising superstar. The introduction of Carlota to this capital city only solidifies it as a must-visit destination for world travelers who crave rare beauty and a rich cultural heritage. A French-style home from the 1900s set just blocks from Quito’s main landmarks and sites, Carlota was created as an urban lifestyle design experience to fully immerse guests in the treasures of a UNESCO-listed city. An intimate 12-room, family-owned hotel, Carlota, which itself was recently named the World Travel Awards' Design Hotel of South America, offers both personalized attention and an insider’s introduction to the neighborhood scene thanks in part to a staff of neighborhood residents who provide guests with insights into the best places to visit and up-to-the-moment events. Here, locals and guests alike can often be found enjoying the property’s public spaces, which include a rooftop lounge that serves up fab drinks and 360-degree views of the historical district; a wine cellar; an intimate library and reading room; and the Bistro at Carlota, which enables diners to experience the traditional foods and tastes of Ecuador. Built in 1905 by a French architect for a family with close commercial ties to France, Carlota is rooted in an Old World continental style. Yet its original grandeur has been updated and is now punctuated by bright colors, rich patterns, exposed brick walls, and recovered wooden panels. Like the city in which it’s set, Carlota hotel is a glorious mix of historical charm and contemporary flair. Here, dignified spaces play host to a warm, social scene in the heart of old Quito.

    Rooms & Suites

    The 12 rooms and suites range from 12 to 40 square meters, and all offer a working desk, Alpaca duvets and pillows, and views of the street, the hotel’s courtyard, or the vertical garden. While the 14-square-meter Golondrina room and the 12-square-meter Mirlo room feature a double bed—with the latter also offering bunk beds and the 15-square-meter Torito room playing host to two double beds—all the other guestrooms boast a queen-size bed. The 40-square-meter Brujo room includes a living and dining area, a kitchenette, a balcony, a fireplace, and a sofa bed, while the 19-square-meter Campanaria room and the 20-square-meter Azafran room also feature a double sofa bed. The Azafran room offers a small living area, and the 12-square-meter Carpintero room is home to an overhead library.

    Renato Solines & Veronica Reed

    Though Renato Solines studied law in Ecuador, he soon discovered that his passion and talents lay in entrepreneurship and business. Armed with a graduate degree in Business and Global Development, he and his wife, Carlota co-owner Veronica Reed, created an architecture and environmental design and research studio. Over some 15 years the pair then worked on various environmental design and community development projects, always setting extremely high environmental and social goals. In 2008 the couple decided to preserve and fully renovate a family property owned by Renato’s grandmother Carlota. With great love and admiration for this wonderful and loving woman, the couple began working to restore the beautiful historical house that would become the Carlota hotel.
