My only regret is that I can't take this place home with me, but as it's my second visit here it has become a home away from home. A beautiful garden, clean room, hot shower & yummy food await you at La Posada. Everyone is welcoming and treats you like family! There is a warm and inviting fire lit in... More

Posada del Quinde exemplifies the best that Ecuador has to offer! It is new and modern, but in a traditional style. The decor is as warm as the welcome I received upon arrival.

I wouldn't consider staying anywhere except Posado del Quinde when in Otavaol. The gardens & patio are my sanctuary during the day, and at night.the food, bar & roaring fire in their cozy lobby are perfect for meeting other guests when I'm traveling solo.

This hotel has lots of character, is very clean and well-maintained and is within walking distance of the famous Otavalo outdoor market. The rooms look out onto a wonderful patio courtyard where you can see the hummingbirds that fly around the many plants and trees. The restaurant area is warmly decorated with local crafts and has a cozy sitting area... More

My family traveled with two young children (2, 4) through S America for two months. We enjoyed our stay at the Posada with its beautiful gardens. Room was simply furnished with local art, and faced an oasis of trees and flowers. We were the first guests for dinner in Cafe Pachamama on-site, where we had decent food. One of the... More

Bring robust ear plug and eye mask if u want a good sleep. The curtains dont cover the whole window and room on ground level gets lots of traffic noise. Apart from that a pleasant stay. Lots of sighting of hummingbirds in the garden.

My husband, brother and sister- law, and I traveled in Ecuador for 11 days. We stayed here for 3 nights and it was the best place of all of them. The most important factor in that was the staff.
