Why Maria D Redin chose Quito
Our Apartment "Chimborazo" is a self standing apartment located in the first floor of Casa LunaLoma, a beautifully restored colonial house that has been divided into seven unique apartment/lofts, each one carrying it's own personality and special qualities. This house was built at the beginning of nineteen hundreds in one of the most traditional neighborhoods of Old Town Quito, La Loma Grande. With a colonial architecture, three internal cobblestone patios adorned with geraniums and green climbing plants around the wooden pillars, was home of the Cascante-Lopez family that lived in this house for more than fifty years. The house “stayed sleeping” for a long time, everything was closed down. Fortunately a family member took in his hands the big undertaking of restoring the house. While rebuilding the house he and the architect were able to balance the original architecture and antiqueness and at the same time bring the new comfort to the seven apartments. The combination of stone and a variety of travertine tiles that was employed through the interior patios, along with the beautifully crafted stone water fountain that decorates the first patio, provides a warm atmosphere. The house has a superb and magnificent view of the Panecillo and Virgen of Quito, from the shared Mirador. In a perfect night with open sky and shining stars you can have a drink in the terrace and enjoy the view. Following completion of the remodeling, preserving the old and balancing the new, bringing up the best of the artisans involved in the work, we are very pleased with the results and proud to present six wonderful apartments. Each apartment has its own personality, nicely and comfortably decorated. These belong to the family, and are ready to be placed at the service of the tourist. We want to offer our guests a flavor of past generations, and comfort, and enjoyment of the present.

We are located in Barrio La Loma Grande a colonial neighborhood in old town Quito. We are just walking distance away from the must-visit spots in Quito like Plaza de Iglesia de Santo Domingo, Plaza de la Independencia, Presidential Palace, many Colonial churches as La Compania, San Francisco, Art Museums, and very close to the charming and very popular street of "La Ronda" where you can find classic ecuadorian restaurants, super lovely traditional souvenir shops and cafes.
The neighborhood is relatively safe, yet please note it is still up and coming and it is not the gentrified part of Quito, which is what gives it it's unique character. We always advise to all of our guests to exercise common sense when walking within any area of Quito, in particular, Old Town Quito.
And if you ever feel like visiting other Quito neighborhoods, the Trolley stops and buses is only about 800 meters from Casa Luna Loma.
