Our journey around Ecuador

Julio 2018

We’ve been in Ecuador for almost three weeks now. Our friends, who live in Quito, suggested we visit their favorite hotel on our way to Cotopaxi. So we got online and booked a few days at Hacienda La Cienega (HLC). We rented a car and headed to Quilotoa for the day and then over to Lasso near Cotopaxi. When we pulled into the driveway of HLC, we couldn’t believe our eyes. What an amazing place this was. We immediately felt as if we had stepped back in time. We were so excited to be there. It was late in the evening, but we still received a very warm reception. Much to our surprise, we were put in the master suite. Not sure how this happened, since it was the most expensive room. We didn’t complain one bit. We are assuming this room was a result of the low season. At any rate, we loved the suite. As we walked into the living room area, we were amazed at the size of the room. It was huge and had a beautiful chandelier hanging from the ceiling. It was eloquently furnished with antique furniture that had to date back a few hundred years. The property was built around 400 years ago and was beautiful. The bedroom was also quite amazing. We truly felt like royalty and loved living the fantasy. The following day, we walked around the property amazed at the beauty and all the incredible sights. The staff were all up and couldn’t have been more helpful. They had breakfast waiting for us in one of several dinning areas. The feel of the place was just so warm and inviting. Everyone was very nice and extremely helpful. You could feel the pride everyone had working there. The courtyard was amazing and all the other hallways and various rooms. The antiques throughout the hotel were in perfect condition and in pristine condition. The photos on the walls helped tell the history of this incredible historic building. They also had a historical book and photo album available to learn all about the hotel and the families who lived there. We also learned more details from the staff. Some of who worked there for over 35 years. Our stay there was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had traveling. The food was great from the restaurant. The staff were simply the best we’ve ever encountered. And the entire experience was something we will truly cherish always. You can’t go wrong visiting this place. We also visited a nearby rose farm one day and that was really impressive. Great stop in deed.

TRADUCCIÓN

Hemos estado en Ecuador por casi tres semanas. Nuestros amigos, que viven en Quito, sugirieron que visitáramos su hotel favorito en nuestro camino a Cotopaxi. Así que nos pusimos en línea y reservamos unos días en Hacienda La Cienega (HLC). Alquilamos un auto y nos dirigimos a Quilotoa por el día y luego a Lasso cerca de Cotopaxi. Cuando llegamos a la entrada de HLC, no pudimos creer lo que veíamos. Qué lugar tan maravilloso fue este. Inmediatamente nos sentimos como si hubiéramos retrocedido en el tiempo. Estábamos tan emocionados de estar allí. Era tarde en la noche, pero todavía recibimos una cálida recepción. Para nuestra gran sorpresa, nos pusieron en la suite principal. No estoy seguro de cómo sucedió esto, ya que era la habitación más cara. No nos quejamos ni un poco. Estamos asumiendo que esta habitación fue el resultado de la temporada baja. En cualquier caso, nos encantó la suite. Cuando entramos al área de la sala de estar, nos sorprendió el tamaño de la habitación. Era enorme y tenía un hermoso candelabro colgando del techo. Estaba elocuentemente amueblado con muebles antiguos que databan de unos cientos de años atrás. La propiedad fue construida hace 400 años y era hermosa. La habitación también fue bastante sorprendente. Realmente nos sentimos como la realeza y nos encantó vivir la fantasía. Al día siguiente, caminamos por la propiedad asombrado por la belleza y todas las vistas increíbles. Todo el personal estaba levantado y no podría haber sido más útil. Desayunaron esperándonos en una de las varias áreas de comedor. La sensación del lugar era muy cálida y acogedora. Todos fueron muy amables y extremadamente serviciales. Podrías sentir el orgullo que todos tenían trabajando allí. El patio era increíble y todos los otros pasillos y varias habitaciones. Las antigüedades en todo el hotel estaban en perfectas condiciones y en perfectas condiciones. Las fotos en las paredes ayudaron a contar la historia de este increíble edificio histórico. También tenían un libro histórico y un álbum de fotos disponibles para aprender todo sobre el hotel y las familias que vivían allí. También aprendimos más detalles del personal. Algunos de los que trabajaron allí durante más de 35 años. Nuestra estancia allí fue una de las mejores experiencias que hemos tenido viajando. La comida era excelente desde el restaurante. El personal fue simplemente el mejor que hemos encontrado. Y toda la experiencia fue algo que verdaderamente valoraremos siempre. No puedes equivocarte visitando este lugar. También visitamos una granja de rosas cercana un día y eso fue realmente impresionante. Gran parada en acción.

Wonderful place to stay and eat.

We attended a wedding here in early June. The hotel had a ton of character and history (over 400 years old) The staff were so friendly and accommodating with everything from cleaning the rooms, starting a fire in the fireplace, dining and more. The accommodations and dining were reasonably priced. Fantastic place.

Visité la Hacienda la Ciénega y no me quedan nada más con gratos recuerdos. Comenzando porque la hacienda está ubicada en un lugar alejado de la civilización y muy cercano a la naturaleza y a los animales. La primera impresión es que es un ambiente muy colonial, pues este aún conserva gran parte de la estructura original; además, cuenta con grandes jardines y amplios espacios para caminar. La hacienda cuenta con cuartos pequeños como si fueran pequeñas oficinas el cual encontré lugares donde los huéspedes pasan ratos tomando café, leyendo o simplemente teniendo conversaciones. Adicionalmente la hacienda cuenta con un excelente restaurante el cual cuenta con un amplio menú para todos los gustos. Las habitaciones son muy cómodas y al ser un clima frio estas cuentan con sabanas térmicas y con calefacción sin volver a mencionar que el ambiento colonial es fabuloso porque guarda una mística y unas interesantes anécdotas que contar.

Classic location with many period features.

Period Hacienda with many original and charming features. Don’t be put off by reviews saying the place is run down. If you’re expecting fresh paint and modern fittings then you’re looking at the wrong type of property. Located at the end of a long drive, this Hacienda exudes grace and charm like no other building we stayed in. Yes, the paint is a bit rough, but that is part of the impressive character of the place. A new coat of paint would detract from the timeless quality of the building. Stepping through the door, you are transported back to an age of portraits, highly polished woodwork and floors. Even the smell of the polish is old fashioned. The building is spacious and sports several mahogany panelled parlours/rooms with more portraits, relics from the past and the inevitable fire place. The downstairs corridors appear to stretch on for a distance larger than the building. In the centre is a very pleasant garden with ornamental waterfall and places to sit. A very pleasant area to while away an hour or two sipping tea/coffee. The restaurant serves a good menu of lunch and dinner with attentive, well dressed waiters serving meals of expansive (for Europeans!) portions. Breakfast seems to be pretty much whatever you ask for, providing the kitchen has it! Did I mention the good views of Cotopaxi???

Wonderful family stay

Loved our recent stay at Hacienda la Cienega. My husband and I stayed there with our kids, 7 and 9. The hosteria was loevely. From the common sitting areas where we sat by the fireplace and played cards, to the bright airy breakfast tables, warm cozy fire-lit dinner areas, cute bar, and beautiful courtyard. As one walks through the halls, one can just imagine the hundreds of years of the place’s history. We had a great family room, with a fireplace that was lit every evening. The staff was truely exceptional. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, and were great with our kids. Can say enough good things about them.

Beautiful, charming, historic

We spent 3 nights here while touring the Cotopaxi region, Pujili, Quilotoa and Banos. The staff were most welcoming and friendly. We had the «honeymoon suite» at the front of the old hacienda building–a huge sitting room, huge bathroom and huge bedroom. The food was excellent–we had breakfast and dinner there every day. The long allee from the gate to the main building consists of eucalyptus trees to the side and a wide driveway. There is a beautiful courtyard behind the main building, enclosed on all sides by one-story buildings that have more rooms. We didn’t see those rooms so have no idea if they are modern or if they have the same kind of quaint collection of furniture from different periods that our accommodations had. The bed was very comfortable. We had a space heater in the bedroom–there were no heaters in the old days when the building was built! The building is of stone and the walls are thick. There is an enormous living room where one can sit with a fire in the fireplace. There is a gift shop (we had long days and so were not there when it was open). We felt a little bit as if we had time-traveled back to the 1930s. A lovely setting, really good food, very nice people, photos of historic events that had happened there on the walls–the place breathed history. Would highly recommend staying there and would go back any time!

iese Hacienda ist ein sehr geschichtsträchtiger Ort. Die gesamte Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und macht einen gemütlichen Eindruck. Unser Zimmer wurde geheizt und jeder bekam eine extra Wärmedecke. Das Personal war sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. In dieser schönen Atmossphäre hätten wir es sicher mehr als eine Nacht ausgehalten. Über das Essen konnte man sich auch nicht aufregen. Es war sehr authentisch und gut.

Already to the road to this mystic place is … bumpy. And then when entering under the enormous trees and seeing the Hacienda at the far end of the alley, is a magic moment, like you only have a few in lifetime. We had a good lunch, on the high end of what you expect in ecuador, but the place itself, it’s history, the free visit of the garden make it an unforgettable moment on your journey from Quito to wherever you are heading down south…

Dripping with history plus utterly delightful staff”

This was a truly unique and beautiful place to lay our heads after an exhausting and exhilarating trip up the nearby Cotopaxi volcano… A stunning approach up a long sweeping drive and you are greeted by four warm staff, wreathed in smiles and immediately taking our bags and showing us up to our wonderful (set of!) rooms. They also knew our names already which was a lovely touch – they’d taken the time to work out who was arriving. Our two rooms were incredible – we had the main suite with beautiful views on to the front and back of the hotel, with its blissfully laid out and well-kept gardens – complete with hummingbirds buzzing around which you could watch from the inside while sitting in front of the wood-burning stove and sipping a fennel tea. There are wonderful paintings and sculptures everywhere and the hacienda offers an immaculate restaurant with a delicious lunch, dinner and breakfast menu. My sister was unfortunately very ill the next morning with gastric issues and the wonderful staff didn’t hesitate to organise a trip to the doctor and also loaded us up with oregano tea for our onward journey. Even poorliness didn’t take the shine off our experience. Unforgettable!

 

A magical place you’ll remember forever!

During a two week trip to Ecuador, we spent two separate nights at this great hotel. It positioned us well for treks up Cotapaxi and down Quilatoa. Both were amazing experiences. At the hacienda, we were treated to excellent service, great food, and on one of the evenings traditional live Andean music.

We were here for lunch with our family and some friends. The Hacienda is really well maintained though some details need to be fixed. The food was good and the service excellent. The driveway is stunning and it seems to take you to another time.

Este casarão com mais de 300 anos virou um hotel e com restaurante aberto ao público. Tudo lindo e cheio de histórias …. fomos em uma almoço de negócios e realmente um lugar sem igual. Comida muito bem feita, saborosa e com ótimo atendimento. A entrada para a alameda em frente do casarão é algo magnífico assim como o jardim no interior do hotel. Tudo lindo.

This old hacienda is a step back in time and well worth the detour (and expense) for the budget conscious traveller. We spent a single night there and the room, building and grounds were well kept and like being in a museum.

The meals were quite good but simple.

Auf der Durchreise Stop in dieser Hacienda: allein schon die Einfahrts- Allee und der Garten waren sehenswert. Obwohl wir keine Hotelgäste waren und nichts verzehrten war das Hotelpersonal äusserst freundlich und wir bekamen eine informative Führung durch die ganze Anlage inclusive der Suite, die von Humboldt bewohnte.

Had the pleasure of visiting Hacienda La Cienega for lunch. Firstly, the drive way as you enter is absolutely stunning with huge Eucalyptus Trees which leads to the main house. We were seated at a nice table and were greeted warmly by the staff. The waitress that took care of us was very nice and caring and it was impressive that she had been there for 25 years. The food was amazing, I had the Avocado with Shrimp as a starter and it was delicious. For the main course I had Corvina with Seafood which was prepared in an aluminum foil packet. All of the flavors from the food were great.  Having great food in a beautiful setting along with excellent customer service makes for a great time. The only regret is that we could not stay longer.   travel to Ecuador frequently so I hope to be back.

This beautiful hacienda is located perfect between Cotopaxi and Quilotoa, so if you are for a tour to visit Cotopaxi National park and the next day you want to see the Quilotoa laguna in the crater this spot is a perfect choice. A little bit pricy but you have a charm hotel with a lot of history behind, very helpful people and nice surroundings. The wi-fi is not super and can be used only around the reception, so that would be my only concern

Se non temete di addentrarvi in un paesino povero, ai piedi dello splendido vulcano Cotopaxi, se non temete di dormire in una casa fredda come un castello scozzese, allora non perdetevi questa hacienda che vi incanterà con la sua atmosfera piena di fascino e storia. Saloni con vasi enormi colmi di rose fresche, pianoforte e camini accesi, ottima cena e ricca colazione. Poca vita notturna nella location ma cosa importa se in camera ti aspetta un bel fuoco scoppiettante nel grande camino?

“UN LUOGO ANTICO E MAGICO”

Diciembre de 2016

sardegnameravigliosa

Cerdeña, Italia

Premetto che la struttura è molto antica e sicuramente necessiterebbe di qualche lavoro di restauro, ma l’atmosfera che si respira risulta essere magica. Io ci ho pernottato un giorno nel mese di novembre, in occasione della visita al Cotopaxi e della Laguna di Quilotoa, e devo dire che mi è piaciuto. Vi consiglio di farvi un giretto in tutta la tenuta, magari di primo mattino con le prime luci dell’alba, per apprezzarne meglio i giardini, i lama e gli alpaca presenti nel viale di ingresso. Questa la mia recensione: STRUTTURA  L’hotel è ubicato in mezzo alla campagna ecuadoriana. L’ingresso non è dei migliori per via delle case e della strada sterrata con parecchi buchi. Il viale di ingresso è molto ampio e scenografico. L’hacienda ha due livelli, ma la gran parte delle camere si trova al piano terra. Da visitare la piccola chiesetta posta all’interno del giardino. CAMERA  Io ho avuto la camera nr. 29, una matrimoniale con l’aggiunta di 2 letti singoli (non richiesti). La camera, al piano terra, è veramente ampissima: un appartamento! Nella stanza è presente un caminetto con candele a disposizione, e 3 termosifoni elettrici. Insomma non c’è pericolo di aver freddo: molto gentilmente il personale ci ha riscaldato la stanza prima del nostro arrivo. Ottimo servizio! Cioccolatino sul cuscino di benvenuto e acqua imbottigliata a disposizione. Ampio e comodo letto (un po’ da rivedere il materasso), coperte e cuscini a volontà. A disposizione anche termoforo. La vista è sui giardini. Le tende non sono perfettamente coprenti ma si dorme bene anche perché la zona è silenziosa. Nella stanza pure un divano, poltrone, sedie e tavolino. L’impianto elettrico non è certo moderno, come tutto il resto, ma pare sicuro. Nessuna tv ma non se ne sente il bisogno, visto il tipo di albergo.Il bagno è veramente grande: vasca con passamano e telo doccia. Ampio lavabo e specchiera, phon a disposizione. Per l’acqua calda occorre attendere un pochino (ma c’è apposito cartello di avviso) ma perché l’hacienda è veramente grande e necessita di piu’ tempo. Pressione e temperatura dell’acqua ottima, nessun problema! Gli amenities sono tantissimi: saponi e bagnoschiuma, alcuni prodotti fatti con erbe locali. Asciugamani di ottima qualita’ PREZZO E SERVIZI OFFERTI Noi abbiamo speso USD 86 a testa formula mezza pensione. Non è economico ma il servizio è stato ottimo, sia per la qualita’ e quantita’della cena (prodotti tipici) che per la colazione (prevalentemente americana). Il servizio è sempre al tavolo non a buffet. Il wi-fi è disponibile solo in alcune aree. Nella nostra stanza (vista la distanza) non funzionava correttamente. La pulizia è ottima. Il personale è molto gentile.

Nos quedamos solo una noche porque estábamos de paso y buscábamos algo especial. En la hacienda se celebraba una boda, pero en recepción nos buscaron una habitación calma para que el ruido no nos molestara y fue perfecto.

El lugar es precioso porque parece que revivas siglos pasados y todo el personal atento y agradable. Las habitaciones son grandes y un poco frías porque es una construcción antigua, pero el staff se preocupa por tu comodidad y te ofrecen todos los calefactores y mantas necesarias para tu confort. Desayuno correcto en un espacio agradable mirando al jardín. No probamos el restaurante. Un buen recuerdo.

We could again expierence a big authentique room. We got as well a room with connecting doors. This gives added value to us as a family. A nice fireplace was warming up our room. I would have like it a little warmer to take a shower but I guess that is part of staying in haciënda’s. The garden was beautiful.

Si a la excelente comida que se puede degustar en La Ciénaga le añadimos el entorno cargado de historia que la rodea nos envolverá una sensación excelente de paz y satisfacción a la vez.. Recorrer sus salones cargados de muebles y fotografías que nos transportan a un elegante pasado, pasear pos sus jardines, penetrar en la iglesia y saborear luego sus manjares con tranquilidad hace que la Hacienda la Ciénaga sea un espacio único en Lasso, no lejos de Riobamba. A todo ello habrá que añadir la amabilidad del personal, en especial del camarero que nos atendió. Gracias !!!.

La Cienega was a beautiful hacienda more than 300 years old. The hotel was very close to Cotopaxi Volcano and to the rose plantations. The hotel interiors were kept in original decoration. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The firespace in the room was working and it was effectively the main heater in the room. The food during dinner and lunch was traditional and delicious. Free wifi was working properly.

When we approached the entrance of this hotel, it was as if this was a set from a romantic old movie. The long driveway was lined with eucalyptus trees. The hotel building was a grand old mansion from 1742. You could even visit their own chapel anytime of the day, the chapel itself was large and elaborate with pulpit and loft. We had a good size room and huge windows on two sides, but I must say the bathroom was a little small. Food in the restaurant was only average and expensive, but I guess we had to pay for the atmosphere and ambience of this very enchanted mansion too. They also put a small hot pad in your bed to keep you warm at night. I love it.

A welcome change from your big business hotel in Quito. This place had a great deal of character and feels like it has many stories to tell. The rooms were large and spacious, the restaurant staff very kind and friendly despite either of us not being fluent. Things like wifi and hot water a little temperamental but to be expected in a building of this age. Recommended.

Es una hacienda hermosa, llena de historia, con una capilla incluida, cerca al volcán Cotopaxi y en una zona segura. El personal es muy atento y amable, la comida es exquisita, la carne muy buena y los baños limpios y amplios. Los postres son espectaculares sobre todo los helados de paila hecho ahí mismo y el pastel de chocolate casero. Tiene un jardín con pileta Hermoso, además de contar con una entrada imponente llena de eucaliptos de 300 años aproximadamente. Amplio parqueadero y muy buen lugar para comer antes o después de visitar el volcán Cotopaxi.
