El Crater

Hotel El Cráter is located 30 minutes from Quito, and 5 minutes from the Equator and the "middle of the world" museum. Covered with hand-carved pumice stone, the luxurious suites and standard rooms are elegantly decorated in a minimalist ethnic style. The spacious and warm suites have an exceptional view towards the volcano "Pululahua"- one of the only two populated volcanos in the world. A beautiful mountain view and a constantly changing landscape are observed perfectly from the rooms, thanks to the generous huge picture-windows. All the elements used in the hotel are organic, designed and handcrafted by locally famous artists. The Hotel is ideal for a romantic night, as well as for a contemplative and relaxing experience.
