The hotel is on a busy street and built in a swaure design with a garden center or sitting area in the middle of the square. This makes it very noisy when people are coming into the hotel at night. All rooms face the middle of the hotel area. The beds were hard and the pillows hard. There was a bath with shower. The kitchen was open for breakfast only. The rooms were not large. Enough room for two beds and a night stand between. A closet armoir was in a corner. It was clean and the staff was very helpful with maps and directions. The hotel is in the city center.
The hotel is very well situated right next to the market, so you basically step into it as soon as you go out. Also central for visiting other places of interest, such as the great pie shop on the plaza de ponchos. At the same time the windows were not with a view on the street, so no noise from the market. On the down side, the window was facing a next door apartment and also had a view on a shop with a glass ceiling below, so in terms of view not much enjoyment, but at least some fresh air was available if need be. The place has it´s charm, owned by a local indigenous family and decorated accordingly, very Otavalo. All services were decent, hot shower, good breakfast, friedly staff.
The hotel is situated just around the corner from the central market place. Really nice and friendly staff. the hotel is clean. I had a nice and rather big room with tv and a good shower. The decoration is done with a good taste of art and culture. There are several places to sit or play games. I really enjoyed it.
Great place to stay in Otovalo. Very close to Plaza del Ponchos for the market. Staff is friendly and some speak some english. Nice room, nice common area. Market on the corner of the square for necessities and beverages if you are so inclined. Make sure if you are staying here to specify Hotel El Indio. There is an El Indio Inn (Owned by same people I think) Set up transport to Quito airport for us for 4. Good driver.
The hotel is in a great location next to the main Otavalo market. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the rooms while basic are clean and functional. There are some nice open areas to sit and relax. The rooms at the back in the newer wing are much better and very quiet, while the older rooms are on the street which can be noisy. The Internet is great, and the showers nice and hot. Breakfast is included, which was good except for the terrible coffee!
