Hotel looks ordinary on the outside, but beautiful gardens and lovely restaurant, lounge and rooms. Staff are very attentive and helpful. Quite noisy - dogs barking and traffic - but they even given you ear plugs. I would say all hotels in this town would be noisy. Hotel is an easy 5 minute walk to the main square where there... More

We spent three nights at Posada del Quinde and loved our stay there. The rooms are lovely and we faced beautiful gardens. We were just a few blocks from the fabulous market (don't miss the Saturday version!) and many restaurants. We had a lot of our meals at the Posada because the atmosphere was so welcoming. We had a big... More

The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. Breakfast on the outdoor patio surrounded by the garden and fruit trees was a highlight. The rooms are simple but elegant and was exactly what I was looking for.

This is my second visit to La Posada del Quinde. The first time I was alone. This time I was accompanied by my wife. It was even better. We spent time by the roaring fireplace with a good drink, and had a romantic conversation in the Gazebo. The gardens were lovely and the hummingbird feeders provided lovely views. From the... More

This was my third visit to Posada del Quinde. Twice I went alone and this time my sister was with me. Maggie and her team treat each guest as if they were family. The rooms are very nicely furnished and the bathrooms have large showers with great water pressure and lots of hot water. The hotel is only a few... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights while touring the city of Otavalo and the surrounding countryside. The rooms are reasonably sized, about what I would hope for in such a colonial-style property. The hotel is set up with the rooms around two sides of a perimeter, just inside the wall, with a lovely garden in the center.... More

I have stayed at the Quinde 4 times while in Ecuador. The rooms are immaculate and the staff is very attentive. It's a great place to relax and it has a yummy restaurant. Portions are generous and the food is great. Maggie has done several things to help minimize the nearby street noises. Love this quaint hotel. Close to the... More

This quaint, friendly and inexpensive hotel is a must for the traveler in Otavalo. It is located just minutes from the wonderful open market. The rooms are well appointed with local art, comfortable furniture and scenic views. The staff are helpful, knowledgable of the area and very courteous. The patio area is the perfect place to enjoy the "breakfast included."... More
