El Crater Hotel

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, we have 8 Luxurious suites and 4 standard rooms, 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- and towards Equator. A beautifull mountain view and a constantly changing landscape are observed perfectly from the room, thanks to its generous huge picture-windows.

El Crater Restaurant

Strategically built on the edge of the crater of the volcano Pululahua, for its architectural design, the restaurant permits a visibility of 360 degrees. The construction of the restaurant was made hand craftedly, using construction material from the adjacent area. The combination of the stone, the pumice stone and the wood is creating a remarkably warm space the respects its environment while adding it an aesthetic touch.

The restaurant has 4 sections, each with a different view and atmosphere.  The changing weather transform the landscape continuously, contributing to the unique dining ambiance of the restaurant.

We offer a traditional Ecuadorian cuisine next to a selection of classic international dishes; we have a varied wine menu and a range of cocktails from over the world.
