Certificate of Excellence
Dona Esther is a small colonial style hotel in the center of Otavalo, just half a block from the central Bolívar park and near the famous Saturday crafts market. With only 13 rooms we can keep it personal, someone of our staff will always be eager to help you. Your room has a view on the green inner court yard, so you can take a seat outside your room and enjoy a glass of beer or wine after a day of activities, which our staff will gladly bring up to your room. Or take a look on the roof top terrace with beautiful views over Otavalo and the surrounding mountains. Our restaurant with a delicious and inventive menu is just downstairs, our reading room has enough books to buy or exchange and the Wifi is free. A choice of breakfasts is included in the room price. Please note that our restaurant is closed only on Monday evenings, we're there for you every other evening of the week and in the weekends all day and evening. Come and have a look, we'll be happy to have you as our guests!

This is a little gem of a place, an oasis for travelers. Safe, clean and quiet, the Dona oozes an old world charm throughout. Staff are caring and gracious. While the wooden floors have a slight squeak, it is part of the appeal. The restaurant on site serves probably the best
