Highly-recommended as a well-run establishment! We found the owner present and intent upon helping visitors. The hotel did a great job of making us feel very relaxed. They have connections in the area, a good restaurant (cheers!), live local musicians, and can really enhance your trip to Otavalo.

We had a great time and the hotel helped make the experience. The location was perfect for us and we loved the local feel. We loved the food, and the local live music during dinner, the kitchen is clean and safe for foreign travelers.

The hotel is in a great location, just a short walk to the main plaza and the markets. Our room was simple, small but very comfortable. There was always plenty of hot water, great water pressure. Due to the more humid climate, I found the bathroom towels did not dry thoroughly and were always still a bit damp in the... More

This gem is right snack dab in the middle of Otavalo just blocks from the main market. It is an oasis with a huge garden, fire and hearth, local decor and lovely setting. The staff is so friendly and sweet. We stayed in Suite 1 - a huge room with tons of room, 3 double beds and a twin, a... More

I had looked at all the photos of La Posada del Quinde on Trip Advisor, and was able to easily spot it as we entered Octavalo from the Pan American Highway. That it would be an oasis was apparent as we entered the foyer from the street. We were met with a spacious setting, tiled floors, wood furniture, lovely local... More

Brilliant 3 night stay. Couldn't fault the service here. The rooms were immaculate and the we just loved the restaurant. Best lasgagne ever and lots of healthy vege choices as well. Susy was so helpful with organising transport and things to do. The drivers went out of their way to be helpful and we got an airport pick-up. Definitely highly... More

From the moment you walk in until you leave you are treated like family. The service and employees go beyond expectations of any hotel. Beautiful views, great food, comfortable rooms, live local music on weekends, and much more! Maggie knows how to run a wonderful establishment!

I cannot say enough things about this hotel! Maggie, the owner, is a phenomenal woman and runs a beautiful, well kept hotel in the heart of Otavalo. I can speak for the group I was with that this hotel went above and beyond for all 20 of us! Just blocks from the market, this hotel is waking distance from everything.... More

Just a few observations since there is ample information in the many well-deserved favorable reviews: We stayed in the suite, which is HUGE. We felt we should find a few more people to stay there with us. Excellent hot water and water pressure in the shower. Everything very clean. Maggie is indeed exceptionally helpful. Location is excellent -- it's not... More

I have stayed with Maggie a number of times in the years since she purchased the hotel. Each time I return it is fun to see how she continues to upgrade the hotel. The landscaping, the interior of the dining room, the menu and the rooms have all been improved since my first trip. You could not ask for a... More
