I loved my 3-night stay at Posada del Quinde! It’s a beautiful, airy, light-filled space, filled with warm wood and colourful handicrafts. It’s just a few minutes’ walk from the Plaza de los Ponchos, but feels like a sanctuary. The gardens are wonderful, providing a habitat for the frogs that sung me to sleep at night. Some of the Kichwa people who run the hotel have worked there for decades and it shows. It feels very much like being welcomed into a harmonious home. The rooms are thoughtfully equipped, the bed was soooo comfortable, and the piping-hot shower was a joy. I would totally recommend Posada del Quinde!
La Pasado Del Quinde is a gem in the city of Otavalo. This was my first trip to Ecuador. I was impressed by Hotel's friendly staff, quality of the accommodations and the sanctuary feel of the grounds. I enjoyed the views from gardens where I walked and meditated in the mornings. I highly recommend a stay here.
I've been a return guest at Posada del Quinde for 10 years, and am thrilled that my home away from home has re-opened. The location in Otavalo is ideal - an easy walk to shopping & restaurants, as well as a taxi ride to all the beautiful sites & nearby towns. If you want to be surrounded by Andean culture & still enjoy all the comforts of a dedicated staff, comfortable beds & pillows, fabulous hot showers, restaurant with delicious (and safe) food, and a stunning garden in the middle of a city, then don't miss the Posada del Quinde experience. I'll definitely be back.
Service: The workers here were always available, polite and ready to answer questions about what to do in the city and how to reach various locations. The hotel also has a brochure with clear recommendations on what to do in the city. Location: The hotel is a short walk from the famous market in Otavalo. Amenities: The beds here are quite honestly the best I have ever slept on and they are made with soft comfortable blankets and sheets that make you not want to leave! The room we stayed in was big enough to fit 6+ people comfortably so staying as a big group in this hotel will not be a problem! Relaxation: Wow, the views here were my favorite things about this quaint hotel in Otavalo city. Our room had large glass windows that let light in and afforded us the beautiful views of the outside seating area (with amazing landscaping) and the mountain in the distance. This is the place to sit back, relax and reminisce about your city experiences. We were only here for one night and I instantly regretted how short it was once we arrived. Thank you to the staff and owner for providing a mini-paradise for travelers in the city of Otavalo…
I had the privilege of staying at La Posada del Quinde with a couple friends on a spontaneous trip to Otavalo. We were in Awe of how beautiful this hotel is. Suite we stayed in was super spacious, beautiful decor, and view.The BEST sleep I've gotten during my stay in Ecuador has been at this hotel!! Super comfortable beds and the blackout curtains are my best friends. The hotel is located at a pleasant 5 minute walking to the Plaza de Ponchos (artisanal market).
