My husband, brother and sister- law, and I traveled in Ecuador for 11 days. We stayed here for 3 nights and it was the best place of all of them. The most important factor in that was the staff. They try very hard to accommodate your every wish. Susy, the manager, is wonderful! We lost a passport while there and... More

This is not just a place to stay. This is a place where I felt right at home. Maggie, the gracious proprietor, has created a quaint, clean, happy environment for the weary traveler. The rooms are serene, tastefully furnished, and immaculate. The open reception/restaurant/lounge area, decorated with weavings and paintings by local artists, is cozy and inviting. One wall of...

Otavalo with its famous native market, adjacent craft villages, local artisans studios, Condor Park and nearby lakes, waterfalls, mountains and hiking trails is the cultural center of the Northern Highlands indigenous population. It is well worth a few days there instead of a (long) day-trip from Quito or elsewhere. If you decide to spend some time in the Otavalo area,... More

Great location that is near to all activities you will want to do but far enough away that noise isn't an issue. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They helped arrange both local and long distance transportation as well as giving ideas of what to do in the area. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the garden setting... More

A beautiful, clean, quiet, comfortable accommodation in Otavalo. Meals are superb, except the free breakfast needs a few more items. The yard and a garden are full of beautiful flowers, shrubs, trees and birds. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and courteous.

What a wonderful stay. We pulled in without reservations after riding from Quito to Otavalo on a motorcycle. We were cold. wet and tired. We were quickly shown to a beautiful room for a lovely night of rest after a nice hot shower! In the morning we met Maggie who helped us find places to look for Alpaca Weavers .... More

I would highly recommend this garden gem. I now understand why it's such a favourite. It's a lovely, well run hotel with traditional Andean decor, comfortable rooms, and a great restaurant. It also has a beautiful garden filled with birds. When my husband and I were there the weather got very rainy in the afternoons so we would head back... More
