Good location on a main street in the centre of Otavalo. Rooms are all behind reception set around 2 courtyards. Consequently there are no outside windows which make the rooms very dark. Breakfasts nice with a choice of eggs and fruit.

Conveniently situated for the food and handicraft markets, with cafes and restaurants nearby. My 3rd floor room wasn't huge and could have done with some updating but it was functional. Free in room wi-fi, tv, no room safe or aircon. The rooms are built around an internal courtyard so there are no external windows. The hotel seems popular with foreign... More

This hotel is very nice. It is located in the center of Otavalo with easy access to the market etc. The rooms are big with comfortable beds. We had a room on the ground floor with access to the central 'square' with tables outside. The breakfast is very nice - actually one of the best we had in Ecuador. All... More

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We didn't have a family room but the rooms for parents and kids were next to each other and that felt safe enough. Massage was so so. Facilites for kids were much appreciated and used and location is perfect.

This hotel is located in a great part of town, very close to the market. The rooms are clean and nice; it is not particularly special, but they were good to stay in for the location. The staff is nice and gave us great recommendations for places to eat and visit.

The hotel is close to the Indian market, which was our main consideration. The young man (Jairo?) at the desk spoke very good English, was remarkably patient & helpful. The masseuse was highly skilled. Cafe breakfasts were ample & delicious. Cons: The shower area was a bit moldy and could have used some bleach & some grout work. There was... More

We have been travelling for several months and this hotel was a nice surprise. The hotel is immaculate, the staff friendly and helpful. The courtyard is lovely and they even have a hot tub and games room. We booked a room in the back so it was very quiet and the beds are fantastic. I would highly recommend this hotel... More

Our rooms were very clean, hot water available for showering, free WiFi, staff was helpful and friendly, great affordable pricing for rooms, complimentary breakfast was delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is very well situated round the corner from 2 of the main squares and the Saturday markets. The rooms all look out on a central courtyard and although you can open the window it feels like you're inviting everyone into the room! You therefore end up in a very stuff, dark room. I also got bitten a couple... More

In a central location, family management, very clean and silent, shower with hot water, excelent breakfast included, good service, fast free internet service, smiling treatement. A little expensive compared to competitors. Don't make confusion with Indio Hostal manages by the same family but pretty cheap.
