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

Right now, I am sitting in front of a crackling fire while listening to four Ecuadorian musicians play beautiful Andean music at La Posada del Quinde (a regular event here on Friday nights) The hotel guests are happily eating well prepared and fresh dishes such as Quinoa soup or black beans and tortillas in homemade mole sauce. An outgoing traveller... More

I have stayed at Posada del Quinde several times now and it has become my hotel of choice for my Otavalo visits. Maggie is an exceptional Host with connections and information for many points of interest in the area and the meals at their Restaurant are sublime. It is truly a warm 'family experience' to be a guest there as... More

I visited Otavalo for about four days and really enjoyed my stay here. It's located a short walk from the main part of the city and a safe neighborhood. The rooms are clean and the staff is really friendly and helpful. Plus, it's inexpensive to do laundry, which really saved us. The restaurant in the hotel has very good food... More

Recommended by a friend, and I wasn't disappointed. Maggie and the staff were great. We were able to book transportation through La Posada for arriving and departing that was safe, friendly, and clean. The hot water system has been updated... there is plenty and it is HOT. (and no electric showerheads!) A nice thing after traveling much of the country.... More

We were in Otavalo so I could visit the market, and I loved this hotel. Nice rooms, beautiful building, wonderful staff and lovely gardens. It can be chilly there, and they had a fire in the fireplace in the common lounge area that was very welcome. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. and the local staff was great. Good food...
