This is normally used as the focal point for the Chimborazo base camp. The moment we entered, we thought we were somewhere special. Before entering the main room of the building, We removed our shoes and donned the slippers provided. As we arrived, lunch was being prepared - there is no choice! No matter, it was delicious. There is a... More

I really do not want to write this review. I want this place to be selfishly mine, and mine only. Unfortunately, the mind-bending beauty of Estrella del Chimborazo must be shared.

PROS: - LOCATION: This little hotel is nestled in the most beautiful valley, with llamas lazily grazing about, hummingbirds brushing your shoulder, the wind combing through blond heads of wild grass... It's heaven! And I am not... More

Estrella del Chimabarazo is high in elevation in the Totarillas Valley, on the west side of Chimbarazo. We were lucky to read about the Estrella in Rough Guide, and even luckier that they eventually opened the place up when we showed up one afternoon in the off-season this past September.
