Café Cultura is one of the most original hotels in the New Town. The 26-room property was once home to one of Quito's oldest families, and later served as the French Cultural Centre. Meticulously renovated, the building is full of charming touches like claw-footed tubs and hand-painted murals. Select rooms have unique features like a tree growing through (No. 25), or a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows (No. 2). The dreamy restaurant, with its flickering candles and roaring fireplace, sits adjacent to the lobby, and is as good a place as any to hide away with a book or exchange travel tales. There's an English tea service every afternoon, plus a nice array of fresh-baked breads and native fruits like guanabana and chirimoya at breakfast.
