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....

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...

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."...

Every year I visit Ecuador and since discovering la posada del quinde it has been my friends and my 'base camp' for our comings and goings in the area. Maggie and her staff have always been above and beyond gracious and accommodating. The rooms, the food, the service is another level compared to what is around. I'm very grateful for...

Our stay at the hotel was wonderful. The rooms are cozy and clean and the service is excellent. There is a lovely privet restaurant serving breakfast lunch and dinner and the food is excellent. The hotel is located on a quite side street just a 3 minute walk from the center of town. The over all feeling we got during...

I would expect better after having read so many outstanding reviews. Instead the rooms were really basic, pretty cold and definitely noisy. That's why I realized along the night why I found the earplugs in the room when we arrived. Nice garden and good breakfast.

The garden at La Posada del Quinde lured us as we arrived and checked in. We settled down with drinks, watched the birds, and relaxed. Our room was pleasant and comfortable with a beautiful view of the mountains and the garden. The common area has a fireplace that keeps the room cozy in the evening. The food in the restaurant...

Though it is just a few blocks from the market square, it is secluded with a lovely garden and relaxed atmosphere. Good breakfast and roomy rooms with good light (!) for reading. Top-notch local art for sale on the walls - they say all proceeds go to the artist. (But note that for one painter, he sold the art at...

We stayed 3 nights and found La Posada Del Quinde a very relaxing place. The common area had huge windows to the garden and a fire lit in the fireplace in the evening. We sat on the terrace and sipped on drinks while we watched the birds in the late afternoons. Original arts and crafts are displayed (and on sale)...
