The hotel itself is very nice, very well designed, especially the common areas that are very cozy. The rooms are simple, yet very nice and comfortable. The breakfast could be more "rich", but dinners were really nice. BUT what is especially food here is to make the trip to see the Animal market and then visit local schools in the... More

Going to stay at Inti Sisa in Guamote is more than simply going to a hotel or B&B; it means toucing upon the world of Ecuadorian highlands indigenous people in a responsible manner. At the same time, the hotel offers high quality bedrooms and excellent meals.

I stayed the night before the Guamote Thursday market and the place was crowded with visitors from all over the world -- an interesting and friendly bunch of people. Was traveling alone but able to chat at meal times with various groups - most people ate there since few restaurants in the area. The Thursday market was fascinating and lasted... More

Maybe not a very well known town. But it defintely is worth a 1/2 night stop. Picturesque town. Hotel is financing a local project that supports education, food, family support in the area.

First of all, this hotel is beautiful. The rooms are large and modern in a very traditional decor. The common spaces are decorated with handmade treasures from the area - they are also for sale! The food was delicious, the service was both attentive and subtle. We did a horseback riding tour and it was an amazing journey in the... More

Inti Sisa, which means sunfower, is run as a community project where profits go into the educational project. It is an absolutely delightful place to stay. The hotel / guesthouse has about 12 rooms, though this may have increased by now as there was a building project happening closeby. We stayed there for one night in May 2015 as part... More

Inti Sisa is run as a community project to help the locality. And it's run well. Rooms are prettily decorated, public areas are comfortable, and the food good. It was being extended during our stay, but the building work did not interfere at all with our comfort. A great place to stay, not only for the amazing Thursday market, but... More
