Very clean hotel, great price. Rooms were clean, though certainly modest. Option for very quiet rooms off the main streets that open on the courtyard. Staff were super friendly , efficient, and helpful, though spoke little or no English. That said, when my son was sick and we needed to find a cab back to Quito on extremely short notice,...

The hotel offers breakfast meny with choises, with the most expensive at $4. The service was attentive. They have two new, large rooms in the courtyard: Rooms 18 and...

We stayed one night at the hotel Riviera Sucre! We had a room in the building at the back with view on the courtyard : it was quite quiet compared apparently to the rooms facing the main street. We could hear sometimes dogs or the sound of the small street behind (not a lot of traffic), but we slept all...

We selected this hotel from the Rough Guide and thus knew little about it. The exterior was very unassuming but when we walked in it sort of took my breath away. We had rooms 11 and 12 which open directly out onto one of the loveliest courtyard flower gardens. This is supposedly the oldest hotels in Otavalo and many of...

The hotel has all the old world charm of Otavalo, while located just enough away from the hustle and bustle of the market. The staff are all very accomodating and the proprieter helped me find navigate the tricky process of traveling from Otavalo to Banos.
