“Perfect palce to saty - wish we could move in!”

people found this review helpful

Not only is the property more beautiful that the pictures depict, the owners, Wolfgang and Andi, are fantastic hosts! Wolfgang met us upon arrival and after reviewing some housekeeping info he recommended a place for dinner and drove us the few blocks into the historic center giving us a tour along the way. We stayed in the Estrella suite and I can not say enough good things about La Estrella. The decor is well suited and there is a wood burning fireplace that we put to great use along with the fully stocked kitchen (I didn't want for any unavailable utensil while cooking). Speaking of stocked, Wolfgand had placed some bread, cheese, egg and jam in our fridge so we had something to make for breakfast given our late arrival at night.
As described, the place was cleaned during our stay with the changing of sheets as well. On top of what we expected, Wolfgang gave us a couple maps and a prepaid cell phone. He and Andi exceeded all expectations!
We enjoyed Quito, but the highlight of the trip was out stay at Wantara!

“Peaceful Oasis in the middle of Quito”
Reviewed 24 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We began and ended our 6 week stay in Ecuador at Wantara. We appreciated the help and friendliness of Wolfgang and Andi, our hosts. They provided advice on attractions, restaurants, and a driver for tours to Otavalo, Cotocachi, and Cotopaxi that were invaluable. Both of the suites we stayed in (Sol and Tortuga) were comfortable and had well supplied kitchens. We especially enjoyed meeting other travelers in the public garden area and coming back from a long day in Quito to a relaxing haven. The only thing I could have used is a slightly larger bed (personal preference). We would certainly recommend Wantara to anyone visiting Quito, and, in fact, look forward to returning there ourselves when we come back to Ecuador.

“WOW Experience - My Own Lovely Casita in Spectacular Seting, Met Other Travelers, Studied Spanish”
Reviewed 22 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Wantara was an outstanding choice for my month in Quito studying Spanish. Welcomed into a community of travelers by two terrific, personable hosts, you take the key to your own lovely accommodations with access to a soothing, beautiful green space and a spectacular view of Quito.

I stayed a month in the Lagarto Suite – a well, designed and furnished 3-level casita that met all of my needs plus those of a good friend who visited for a week.

Best of all is the opportunity to meet other travelers, gain information and possibility spark an enduring friendship. I suspected that finding a quality Spanish School would not be possible for me in Old Town and I was right about that. But the bus ride to Simon Bolivar School in Mariscal was easy and sometimes an adventure (the bus can get crowded so getting on and off requires determination!)

I also met a fellow traveler, Nick, from the UK studying Spanish and we ended up sharing a teacher and having a ball as we conjugated verbs. Nick inspired an evening cookout one night at Wantara - a special memory as people from around the world gathered together in the outside space.

Lovely surroundings are important to me and as a single, mature woman, I wanted opportunities to meet others. From the very beginning Wolfgang was responsive to my email inquiries and was there to welcome me at my midnight arrival. Andi, a force of talent with a fun spirit, delivered a vase of beautiful flowers from the garden one morning.

With maid service twice a week, laundry done on the premises, super mattress and linens and safety as a priority – Wantara delivers an extraordinary experience for those who find it. Plus if you seek a true Quito experience, you’ll want to stay in Old Town.

“Breakfast in the Garden”
Reviewed 6 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012
1
person found this review helpful

Wolfgang and Andi have created this magical haven within the historic center of Quito. The gardens are beautiful and it's a great place to stay if you want a day to unwind after seeing the city. All rooms are equipped with a kitchen to make your breakfast, lunch, and dinner if you choose. This property is located within walking distance of the historic center (no more than 20 minutes). If you're arriving by bus or plane, it's much easier to have Wolfgang arrange to have a car pick you up (it's more expensive but if you can't give directions in spanish, much easier) instead of taking a taxi. The only reason I'm not rating the property as 'excellent' is because it can be very difficult to find a taxi at night as most taxis aren't in that area and don't really want to go there. Always call a taxi ahead of time.

Liked best: Eating breakfast in the gardens; the location in regard to walking within the historical center and Trole bus line
Liked least: The location. I was told by my local friends (and a few taxi drivers) that it is in a very bad area. Security is very good though.

“IN ECUADOR, WANTA SUITES IS HOME!”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

The hospitality of Andi and Wolfgang is what makes Wanta Suites a most special place in Ecuador. They are superb hosts, always communicative, and seeking to assure a pleasant stay. All suites are tastefully appointed and clean. We traveled to Mindo, Cuenca, and Manta - yet Wantara was the one and only place that truly felt like "home". We stayed in both the Lagarto and Colibri suites - however we found the Colibri suite to be more conducive to our tastes - with a large porch and more spacious rooms and a direct access to the lovely Wantara garden. The Lagarto, while nice, was next to the street and a bit too busy for our tastes - even though it also can wow you with its charm.

My special thanks to Wolfgang for his fun personality and charm. He is a walking encyclopedia of tourist information on Ecuador.

Wantara is a great place to start your Ecuador experience, or use it as a home base as we did.

Thanks again to Wolfgang and Andi.
