Enjoyed our room, food, staff and impeccable wifi! Maggie ensures you have a wonderful stay and I think she has set up a 'gem'. The staff were always asking if you needed something. And I did need a tea now and then! The garden was so relaxing but beautiful with the birds. they stored our luggage for a few days... More

Just came back from staying at La Posada del Quinde for two weeks. It was a very nice stay in a very clean and friendly property. Beautiful garden with lots of Hummingbirds, great guest rooms, excellent food, very good and attentive staff and a super Innkeeper who could give great suggestions for places to see and visit. Just a couple... More

We just spent 2 nights at this wonderful hotel in Otavalo. It has an old Ecuador feel to it. Reminded me of the pensiones I used to stay in when I lived in Ecuador in the 70's. The staff was cheerful and hard-working which is typical of the Otavalans. We really had fun talking with Maggie, the owner, who is... More

This fifteen room hotel is a model of customer service for South America. The locals who work here are fantastic, always with a smile. The food was very good. The owner very supportive of the staff and the Otavalo and Cotachachi shopping left us nearly broke but with all the presents we needed for friends and family. The hotel gets... More

My family stayed here for 5 nights and the hotel was fantastic the whole time. It is conveniently located just a few minutes walk away from the center of Otavalo, but once you step in the door you feel like you're a world away (with the exception of the beautiful ecuadorian handcrafts covering the walls). The flower garden out back... More

if you must stay in Otavalo, this is probably the best place to choose. THe staff is lovely, the food is great and the location perfect The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the biggest market in South America and the courtyard is full of trees and very tranquil. The rooms are ok, definitely not 5 stars maybe... More

I requested a room with just a few days' notice and Suzy was able to accommodate two of the three nights requested. She was very prompt on emails and when asked, suggested an alternate hotel for the last night and made the booking for me. She met me upon arrival and registration was quick and efficient. I had asked for... More

La Posada del Quinde was a wonderful place to stay. If I were to return, there is no question that I would stay with Maggie and her staff again. They were all extremely helpful to myself and the group I was with. They assisted with appointments, taxi rides, and were very knowledgeable about all of the cultural experiences available around...

Our group worked hard all day doing service work, and it was just a wonderful place to come back to and relax. The showers were hot and the rooms were cozy. It was nice to have that Ecuadorian feel while also feeling comfortable in one's surroundings. Loved it!

The staff was friendly and the location of the hotel was within walking distance of the market and grocery store. It was safe, clean, and very comfortable. The room was fairly large and very accomodating to our needs.
