This hotel was the first stop on our first vacation in Ecuador. We stayed a few days and enjoyed it thoroughly. We would definitely return again. Some highlights. Maggie, the owner, and the staff are all incredibly helpful. It felt almost more like a BnB they were so attentive. The building, rooms, and grounds are all beautiful. The setting was...

We loved this place! Maggie, the owner, is the reason it goes from being just a nice hotel to being a warm, welcoming stay. We had three nights here and Maggie would periodically check in with us while we were eating or hanging out in the lobby. When she checked in about our plans, she was also ready with suggestions...

I spent one day at this hotel as part of my visit to the Otavalo market on Saturday. it is a very pleasant and quaint hotel managed and operated by great staff. It felt like an oasis away from the surrounding neighborhoods. My room was a bit small but clean and nice. It is very close to the animal market,...

I stayed here with my parents for just one night. We all loved the hotel and wished we could have stayed longer. Everyone was so accommodating and made our stay very easy. Susy and Maggie helped us arrange our visits to some of the tourists sites. The food in the restaurant was excellent and we ended up eating almost every...

Super nice place in Otavalo! Arrived on Friday night after long travels from Mindo and felt really welcome immediately. Cosy live performance of musicians in the dining area and good selection of healthy food! The courtyard is very nice to catch a little sun and the fireplace is great to hang out at night. I liked Otavalo a lot too,...

This is a great hotel near all the action but quiet and comfortable. Maggie, the owner, and all her staff go out of their way to please their guests. The food in the restaurant is very good and reasonably priced...one of the few places I will risk eating a Salad. I will definitely stay here the next time I'm in...

I am writing this review from the dining area within La Posada del Quinde while waiting for my lintel stuffed green peppers that I'll finish off with pineapple upside down cake and their wonderful fresh coffee.

We stayed a couple of nights and what comfortable nights they were! Lovely spacious clean room, great shower and fabulous breakfast. We even ate there in the evening as they had such good veggie food. Good location and a wonderful doggie that we enjoyed throwing the ball with and lots of cuddles! Prices for food and drink a bit steep...

Although this place was certainly a sight for sore eyes after 9 hrs on the motorcycle, it is a great place to stay in any event. The staff was extremely welcoming and had secured our reservation despite very short notice and our being in communicado as we were motorcycling off road at times. Our room was spacious and clean.

It was fun each morning to look out at the beautiful vista. It was spectacular! The room was comfortable; great bed, heater if needed, wonderful showers and the warmest blankets I have ever slept under. Cleanliness to the upmost. Our friend Ash was in the room beside us and he left the day before us. I was totally amazed, two...
