THE STORY BEHIND THE HOTEL

In this plot and gardens, Juanita Terrazas Monsalve, a resident of this house, brought together several liberal conspirators such as Abelardo Moncayo and Roberto Andrade, among others, between March and August 1875, with the aim of forging the assassination of conservative president Gabriel García Moreno. This is how, on August 6, in a corner of the Quito Cathedral, they killed the president with firearms and with the help of Faustino Rayo’s machete.

 

Historical memory passed in the 19th century in this hotel.

 

Hotel Mama Cuchara gives new life to the Historic Center of Quito, linking the service and design of the Art Hotels Ecuador brand with the charm of the Historic Center.

 

Across all of our properties, the ethos is the same – passionately blending the new with the old and creating an artistically creative approach to luxury hospitality.
