Stayed here as part of a lengthy trip around Ecuador. Great service, Good food and lots of hummingbirds. Good city north of Quito. Run by an expat and had a great lecture about the country. Not too crowded and very much like a ranch atmosphere.

Henry from Posada del Quinde met us promptly at Quito and drove us for two hours in a new minivan to Otavalo. The ride should be shorter when the road construction for the new airport is completed. Rooms are very comfortable and nicely furnished, with the exception of large windows that let light into the room early. There is a...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The staff are lovely, and very helpful. The food in the restaurant is the best we had in otovalo. It equaled any that we had on our month long trip in Equador/Peru. One night we even had live music. The location is on a quiet street, close to the market but away from the...

What a find! Our driver located this Hostal and what a surprise awaited us behind a stucco wall with a plain wooden door. We were greeted and welcomed into this little paradise. The reception area opened up into a dining room, sitting area, bar and entry into a courtyard that was home to a very elusive long tailed hummingbird. Our...

My daughter and I booked a one night stay and then were unable to travel because she became ill. They had the ability to extend our stay an extra night, good business right?! But I want to comment on how kind and thoughtful they were regarding her. Specific tea was suggested to help her and specific food requests were honored....

We stayed with extended family in a suite. The rooms were large and very clean. Ample hot water. Very family friendly. Meals were delicious. Assistance was given calling cabs and making travel plans.
