This hotel has lots of character, is very clean and well-maintained and is within walking distance of the famous Otavalo outdoor market. The rooms look out onto a wonderful patio courtyard where you can see the hummingbirds that fly around the many plants and trees. The restaurant area is warmly decorated with local crafts and has a cozy sitting area...

My family traveled with two young children (2, 4) through S America for two months. We enjoyed our stay at the Posada with its beautiful gardens. Room was simply furnished with local art, and faced an oasis of trees and flowers. We were the first guests for dinner in Cafe Pachamama on-site, where we had decent food. One of the...

Bring robust ear plug and eye mask if u want a good sleep. The curtains dont cover the whole window and room on ground level gets lots of traffic noise. Apart from that a pleasant stay. Lots of sighting of hummingbirds in the garden.

During the booking process Susy was very helpful - that was a good start and it only got better. We had a warm welcome when we arrived. The staff there were so friendly and helpful even with their limited English and our serious lack of Spanish. The hotel is in the ideal location as it is in walking distance of...

My husband, brother and sister- law, and I traveled in Ecuador for 11 days. We stayed here for 3 nights and it was the best place of all of them. The most important factor in that was the staff. They try very hard to accommodate your every wish. Susy, the manager, is wonderful! We lost a passport while there and...

This is not just a place to stay. This is a place where I felt right at home. Maggie, the gracious proprietor, has created a quaint, clean, happy environment for the weary traveler. The rooms are serene, tastefully furnished, and immaculate. The open reception/restaurant/lounge area, decorated with weavings and paintings by local artists, is cozy and inviting. One wall of...

Otavalo with its famous native market, adjacent craft villages, local artisans studios, Condor Park and nearby lakes, waterfalls, mountains and hiking trails is the cultural center of the Northern Highlands indigenous population. It is well worth a few days there instead of a (long) day-trip from Quito or elsewhere. If you decide to spend some time in the Otavalo area,...

Great location that is near to all activities you will want to do but far enough away that noise isn't an issue. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They helped arrange both local and long distance transportation as well as giving ideas of what to do in the area. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the garden setting...
