When we travelled around Ecuador at the turn of the year, we had a few places booked for the month we were staying, but left a few gaps on the schedule too. Otavalo was the first of the gaps, and we totally lucked out by finding Rose Cottage. The English / Ecuadorian family who run the hosteria are completely wonderful,... More

This place is suchanged a gorgeous place to stay with so much to do! The staff, particularly Jose, we're wonderful and we felt so taken care of. Jose was so helpful and SUCH a sweetheart. We loved all the hikes close by, and appreciated the delicious breakfast and dinner. We'll be back soon!!

We stayed 4 nights at this lovely hostel. We had the Fuya Fuya room with bathroom. This hostal is located 3 km out of town and a taxi ride into town costs 3$ but there us a free shuttle to the Otavalo market. The staff will call you a taxi if you need one. The staff was very nice, the... More

Be Aware!! We reserved from the States, Rosa Cottage via Airbnb, a month in advance for 6 nights, at $120/night. When we arrived we were so surprised how bad and old the place was. Not at all what the place look like on Airbnb. The house we reserved was like a doll house with low ceilings, tiny stairs and the... More

How dare they write this review after only 10 minutes at our place, these people did not stay with us and are spreading inaccurate information!Casa Chimborazo has 2 bedrooms and balconies with fantastic views, a living room with fireplace and a kitchen and looks very nice just like it does on the websites. It sleeps 5 people and costs $120... More

This location has a lot of potential, but needs updating. Out of the way if you don't have a vehicle ($3 taxi ride each way to and from town). Initial we booked 4 nights (first night deposit through PayPal) at Cabana Cayambe (converted play house), but it was cramped and the toilet didn't worked, so we moved into a room... More

We are so sorry you didnt enjoy your stay. We have seven different houses at different prices and fine views at our rural location 3 km outside Otavalo and the cosy little wooden chalet Cabana Cayembe is very popular , with its double bed upstairs and small sitting room downstairs both enjoying the best views on the estate. The ensuite... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Rose Cottage and loved it. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and affordable with a great view of the valley. The location of the hosteria makes it a very quiet place for a weekend getaway. There are some beautiful hikes around the area of the cottage and the staff is very helpful... More

Its just as well this place has the most spectacular views in Otavalo from its grounds as you wont want to spend any time in the room. At $40 a night its cheap although you wont enjoy being there. Dinners are $8 and good. The included breakfast of 1 egg is rubbish though. Guadalupe, the lady who does all the... More

We are glad you enjoyed the beautiful views from our place , liked Guadalupe and found your stay good value. Its easy to get a cab for the 10 minute ride to and from Rose Cottage, and of course the staff can use the office phone if they need to call one. We are not sure why the office phone... More

This is an amazing place with an epic location!!! We had alot of fun while staying here. It is a great place to relax. It is not in town so if you are only going to hang out in otavalo this may not be the best place for you. There was a little bit of confusion because of our limited... More

Outside of Otavalo means this place is a lot quieter than most. It also means that your view will be of mountains and valleys as opposed to streets and walls. The rooms have nice beds and hot showers, and windows with views which make you not want to leave your bed. The hosteria is on the way to a waterfall... More

This place is very cute and has the most scenic setting of any hostel I've ever stayed at. There are plenty of quiet places to sit with beautiful views out over the countryside (and of the volcanoes on a clear day). There are also a few nearby hikes. The food was very good although expensive - you pay for the... More
