About Wolfgang Boerchers

Dear Guest! We are a family with German origin and live in Ecuador for many years. We have worked in the hospitality business, managing a travel agency for a couple of years, now we run our own Wantara Suites.

Our service is flawless and we can help our guests by organizing all the little treats that make travelling easier.

We love to share our uniquely peaceful spaces with interesting people from all over the world. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your trip to Ecuador. We would be happy to host you!

Wolfgang Boerchers purchased this condo in 2006

Why Wolfgang Boerchers chose Quito

Fascinated by the magic of the 'Old Town' where authentic Ecuadorian traditions are still alive and can be experienced in its streets and places, we decided that this is the place we want to live. After a year of extensive search we finally found this treasure. It took us three years to carefully renovate the place. We created seven independent units cautious of not loosing the colonial charm of the property. Art objects in the lush garden and cozy living spaces gives 'Wantara' a special flair.

Stylish and Accommodating in the Old City, Quito, Ecuador

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed four days in one of the stylish and attractive, simple studios at Wantara Suites this January. Our panoramic windows provided a view of the Old City and mountains behind it. We regularly took breakfast at the inviting table on our comfortable and private patio, elevated above the attractive gardens of Wantara Suites. The modern and equipped kitchenette served us well for dining both indoors and out. Our queen-sized bed was most comfortable and warm, beneath the elevated and slanted ceiling of stylish beams and whitewashed walls. Splashes of bright color punctuate the walls, enlivening the room even more.

The owner Wolfgang and his wife provide informative and beneficial orientations to living in the Suites and touring Quito and all of Ecuador. They are personable and kind, lived in Ecuador many years, and speak fluent Spanish, English, and German, some French, and who knows what other languages. The rates charged by Wantara Suites are exceptionally reasonable, given their location in the Old City, the size, design, and comfort of the studios, and what one would pay in more commercial facilities.

Wantara Suites are secure and safe in the community. There are small grocery stores very near, and one can easily walk to prominent destinations and transportation hubs in the Old City. Although we stayed only a few days at Wantara, some of our neighbors there resided a month or more in comfort and convenience.

My husband and I spent 7 luxurious nights at Wantara. We arrived late at night to find our refrigerator stocked with delicious breakfast items and the next morning the owners greeted us like family, and spent hours helping us navigate places to visit. We ended up staying in two separate suites because we traveled a bit between stays and both were gorgeous apartments with fully equipped kitchens, tastefully decorated and comfortable with every anmentity we could ever ask for. We stored our bags there at no charge while we traveled and felt safe and secure in and cared for the entire time.

The suites, hidden behind a gated wall, are surrounded by beautiful patios and gardens. Honestly, it was like entering a secret garden paradise, just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the old city. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Quito. Thank you Wolfgang and Andi!!!

You can't do better in Quito

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been back from Quito nearly a month, and still every day one of us finds something about the Estrella Suite or Wantara's gardens to reminisce about aloud---the thoughtful and gourmet inventory of kitchenwares, the little wood stool that doubled as a child's step-up, the spa-like shower, the resident hummingbirds. Wolfgang and Andi have looked after every detail, creating an ideal home away from home. To families traveling with young children, we recommend the indoor and outdoor play spaces at Cumanda, a 5-minute walk; an afternoon at Parque El Ejido, where the high-thrill rides on the playground include an actual zip-line; and pizza from the walk-away window on the Ronda.

Contemporary retreat in historic Quito

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teen daughters) stayed a week in the Estrella suite. It is well located, within a few minutes walking distance from historic Quito (our favourite area to visit), and inexpensive and efficient taxis and buses will get you anywhere you want to go. The most welcoming hosts are informative, friendly, positive. Wolfgang arranged special transportation for us and made excellent recommendations of restaurants and sightseeing. The apartment was very clean, with a well-stocked fridge for our morning breakfast. The design is modern and clever and the surrounding gardens are most enchanting, especially when one considers it is smack in the middle of a bustling city. We enjoyed aperitifs outside after touring all day and picked fresh herbs from the garden for our evening meals! I highly recommend a stay at Wantara.

exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Wantara Suites was a delight. Although, located a bit outside the centro historico it was an easy walk to the major points of interest and, as importantly, offered a quiet respite from the chaos of the centro. Having come from Banos where car alarms and crowing roosters awakened us at odd hours, Wantara was peaceful and largely noise free. Wolfgang was an engaging host at looked after our needs with sincere attention and concern. The suite itself was fully equipped, had plenty of hot water and good internet connectivity. There was even a beer and coffee in the suite at our arrival, something we appeciated after a four hour bus ride from Banos. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Do Not Miss Staying At Wantara Garden Suites - Quito's Undiscovered Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent three wonderful nights at Wantara Suites. Our suite was perfect for a family of four and had a well-appointed kitchen and beautiful finishes. Wolfgang and Andi were fantastic hosts! Since we arrived late at night, they had thoughtfully provided breakfast for us to make the following morning, recommended their favorite restaurants in La Ronda and arranged transportation to Otavalo for us with their driver. The Wifi is great and our kids really enjoyed relaxing and reading their books in the hammocks on the open air patio. We can't recommend Wantara Suites highly enough.

Quito's colonial center is a UNESCO world heritage site. Our condo is located on historical Calle Loja which is mentioned in the City chronicle dating back to the 16th century. Towards the street we conserve impressive, 400 year old adobe walls, the main building dates back to 1904 and was used as suburban residence of a wealthy family.

The beautiful Plaza de Independencia, many churches, museums and calle 'La Ronda', with all its authentic gastronomic offers are just a short walk away.

Quitos eco-bus 'trole' stops right at the corner and/or the cheap taxi service get you to the modern city in 15-20 minutes.
