7 of us stayed one night in Otavalo. We should have stayed at least two nights in this hotel. From the moment we walked in we felt welcome and taken care of by a terrific staff. The rooms are all wonderful. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which more than comfortably accommodated one couple in the bedroom and two...

We started a month in Ecuador and Peru at the Posada del Quinde during Inti Raymi, and were pleasantly surprised by its value and location. My kids and wife fell in love with this charming place based on its lovely service, food and a garden full of flowers and hummingbirds (Quindes), gazing up at Imbabura. It offered just enough distance...

I stayed at La Posada del Quinde this February (2017) and had a wonderful time. The hotel is located in an old Spanish Hacienda it would appear. The staff are very nice and hospitable, the rooms comfortable, with nice views, and the food was delicious. There is a lot of really cool art displayed throughout the dinning and lounge areas....

We stayed there for one night while visiting the markets. Great location to walk to everything in town. They could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They would make you whatever you wanted to eat - there - if you wanted an easy bite in the hotel (we didn't do this, found out after but wished we had as...

Situated on the edge of town, the hotel is situated in lovely grounds which are very well maintained and a haven for bird life. On the plus side, the bed was exceptionally comfortable, the bedroom itself is nicely decorated with traditional wall hangings, Ecuadorian masks and plants. There is ample shelf space and the bedroom itself is moderately large. Breakfast...

This is a beautiful hotel. There is a lovely dining room with a wood burning fire place. We enjoyed lovely evenings here. The garden is also beautiful. My family stayed in a suite and it overlooked the garden and terrace area. It was a bit difficult finding food near here, but other than that no complaints. Wished we could have...

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...

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...

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...
