I stayed at The Hosteria Rose Cottage for a total of 12 nights (after originally planning only a weekend stay) in March, 2014. Without exaggeration I can say that it’s one of the most wonderful places I’ve ever stayed in over 40 countries of world travel. If you go in with the right expectations (it’s NOT the Ritz-Carlton Hotel or...

We only got to stay a night at this wonderful lodge. We rented the Rose Cottage and it is a very cute little place. The owner certainly try to make the cottage as welcoming as possible, with fresh flowers in the vase, free beer, snacks and pop in a basket. The view from the compound is simply gorgeous. Aside the...

We felt very unwelcome here. There was no internet in the room en when we go to the empty restaurant they kicked us out and send us to a very small and cold library. The included breakfast was very poor. You have to pay extra if you want a decent breakfast. The manager was screaming the whole day and not...

Of all the places I visited in my four months, this was my favourite: warm Ecuadorian hospitality, breathtaking location / views across the Mojandita valley, extremely reasonable prices, terrific food, cosy single and dorm rooms. Rose Cottage is a five min drive out of the centre of Otavalo and is an incredibly peaceful / tranquil place to reconnect with nature...

Our stay here was short but it still felt like home. The owner Rosa was fabulous and the location and grounds are stunning. Free breakfast and plenty of blankets provided for chilly nights. It takes about an hour to walk the scenic route into town, which was lovely. Definitely recommend this hostel.... oh and they have a llama

We initially booked for 3 nights including the Saturday market. Breakfast is earlier that day and one of the staff drops you off at the animal market. Quite an experience this market. We ended up staying 6 nights. We were captivated by the views and enticed into walking in the countryside and a trip to laguna Mojande is a "must...

We had an amazing stay at Hosteria Rose Cottage. We were lucky when we were there that the owners were also visiting as they normally live in the UK and they were so welcoming. In saying that the manager and staff could not be nicer or more helpful and work extremely hard to ensure that all guests have a wonderful...

I stayed here for a month and I had the most incredible time. The views are beautiful, like nothing I have ever seen. The staff are so so friendly and it has a really nice family meal to the place. Dinner was delicious too! I did not want to leave.
