I had two weekdays and an early Saturday morning in Otavalo. Hotel Coraza is a reasonably priced option in an excellent location to enjoy the town, which is small enough to wander around on foot, helpfully assisted by the map provided on reception. It also gave access to looking at the early markets (now setting up outside the hotel) after... More

Gross! Too late to change hotels:.( The moldy bathroom walls, dirty carpet and dirt encrusted vents made for an unpleasant experience. However, it was cheap, easy on the pocketbook, and had a great juice at breakfast.

Hotel is located next to one of the main market streets leading to the main market plaza. Front rooms have a bit of traffic noise but have a nice view of the Saturday market traffic. Has an enclosed car park. Room was clean and comfortable with AC.

Just a block from the main plaza, and half block off the main one way street leading directly to it.(Bolivar) Only 3 blocks from the main market, and still walkable to the bus station in 10-15 minutes. Cab to the station was only a buck. This hotel has lots of rooms on 3 floors, and very helpful staff, even though... More

I spent 4 nights at this hotel in room 111 and I thought it was very nice. The rooms were spacious and clean. The (big) window had a quite a nice view of the mountains and let in lots of natural light. The staff (although limited with their English), were friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is as... More

For our only night in Otavalo, we chose here because of location. Room was clean, neat, and spacious compared to most. WiFi was extremely good! Very rare in Ecuador. The breakfast excellent and service couldn't have been better! Wish had stayed longer.

The hotel is located just 3 blocks from the market. On market day the street to the market is lined with the locals where they set up booths and sell their goods. There is a fantastic restaurant next door on the 3rd floor. It has the only elevator in Otavalo. The food is great and they have two craft beers... More

We booked Friday July 12, 2013 via the internet, then booked Sat. and Sun. (13th & 14th) via credit card at the front desk. When checking out, the desk clerk said we owed for 3 nights. I produced an email that showed conformation of payment for July 12, and he reluctantly agreed but insisted that we still owed for the... More

I stayed one night at Coraza. I was given Rm 114, a single room ensuite, for $21.50. Though Rm 114 sounds like it is located on the first floor, it is in fact located on the third floor. The hotel was pretty quiet and Rm 114 contains a double bed, a glass-topped desk, an end table, plenty of cupboards for... More
