Ecuador got the unique hotel build with pumice stone
The house was ordered built at the beginning of the eighteenth century by the Marquis de Miraflores. Here lived the General Manuel Tomás Maldonado and housing was in the hands of his heirs for over 150 years until it was acquired and renovated and converted into a hotel.
Pumice of this house was formed by rapid cooling of a lava-rich gases. In volcanic areas like Latacunga, where the pumice was plentiful, it was used for foundations in traditional houses and walls built to stop dividing land or properties.
For this reason several of the churches in the city, the other house of the Marquis de Miraflores, the municipality and other housing are of this material; However in modern construction is not considered to pumice suitable for foundations due to its porosity.
In the 200 years that owns the house still retains its Spanish style, with its corridors, courtyards, oven, water well, the walls of pumice, characteristic of large latacungueñas homes of yesteryear.
Nice location with a historic feel. Clean nice rooms and a friendly staff. I would come back again.

A quaint hotel in an old building with a very photogenic courtyard. Rooms have big wooden doors that are opened by large iron keys (just like in the olden days). Rooms have very nice old furnishings and plenty of space and comfort. Slept very well.
