Wonderful hotel in Otavalo with a beautiful garden for walking in the back. When we arrived 13 high school seniors from Idaho were trickling back in from weeklong home stays with indigenous Andeans. The cafe and sitting area was welcoming and comfortable and large enough for us to enjoy the commotion and excitement of the kids and their teachers without...

Spacious, nicely furnished rooms. Big garden area with hummingbirds. Delicious food and very helpfull staff. The hotel is only a few blocks away from the central market area. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Reservation process/prepayment was a little bit cumbersome (via email/fees for money-transfer).

Hello Yves! Thank you so much for your concise, positive review. I am sorry for the cumbersome process you had to go through for your reservation. You'll be glad to know that between the time you reserved and the time of your stay, we remedied that situation by allowing guests to make reservations online. While they still have the option...

After an adventure tour of the Galapagos Islands and a couple of days in bustling Quito, La Posada del Quinde was a tranquil oasis for relaxation and recuperation. Accommodations were very nice, and the inviting patio overlooking lush gardens and magnificent mountains provided optimal hummingbird viewing. The food at all meals was very good and the Friday night dinner entertainment...

I went to Otavalo for an internship and stayed here for a month. Everyone was super nice and willing to help and bend over backwards to make sure that I had everything I needed. The food was awesome. Beautiful views of three area volcanos and beautiful flower gardens with many of the hummingbirds that the hotel is named after. Live...

I had the pleasure of staying at La Posada del Quinde for a week. My room was clean and comfortable with a roomy bathroom. I ate breakfast in the hotel's restaurant each morning and both the food and the service were excellent every time. I enjoyed a couple of tasty dinners there as well. There are no televisions or phones...

Otavalo had been on my bucket list for years, and my friend and I finally got the chance to travel there in March. We stayed for three nights at La Posada del Quinde, and it could not have been more perfect. Maggie, the manager, was simply amazing. She had communicated to us quite often via email before we arrived, answering...

Hotel was not very easy to find, but it has private parking and it is only a short stroll to town center. Our room was very very cold but there are electric heaters and cosy duvets. Hotel has a nice garden and they light up afire in the dining area at night. One night they even had a life band...

As an Ecuador resident from outside Otavalo, I often have occasion to visit. Usually I visit the restaurant, where the food is always reliably excellent (and interesting). Recently I stayed the night, and found the accommodations to be excellent as well, with a room overlooking the lovely garden, plenty of space, and a comfortable bed. All one could ask.

I have no doubts when I say that you do not have to look beyond this hotel for location, convenience and responsiveness from start to end. Maggie the owner was always very prompt in replying my e mails and addressing any concerns we had. We occupied the suite above the restaurant which was spacious and beautifully decorated. The beds were...

The hotel owner, Maggie, is awesome. While I was checking out, my husband & boys were supposed to be packing the car. Somehow, they left a bag behind. We didn't realize until we got to Quito & checked our messages. Maggie put the bag with a driver & it was delivered that night for only $70 - worth every penny!...
