La Cuadra Hotel
Ranked #1 of 11 Cotacachi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 21, 2012

My 16 year old daughter and I spent a night here. Our room was very clean and spacious. It is by far the biggest bargain around---$10/bed and if you want to splurge, you get en suite for an extra $5!!! The staff were very friendly and Jairo speaks English---which isn't too easy to find in small towns in Ecuador. I would highly recommend La Cuadra.

Room Tip: Request a room off the street. It can be a little noisy if you are streetside.

I could not be more pleased with my experience at La Cuadra. Jairo Gomez is a gifted hospitality expert and does not hesitate to go out of his way to make you comfortable. I took advantage of the monthly rate and would recommend La Cuadra to anyone. Currently in the process of adding 18 new rooms with private baths, Jairo will add a restaurant and gardens in the near future. You can be certain it will be an added bonus to La Cuadra.

Room Tip: Quietest rooms are at the rear if, like me, you are a light sleeper. But don't worry. Just tel...

My husband and I spent over a week at La Cuadra Hostal and words can't express how much we enjoyed our stay there. Jairo went above and beyond to make our stay there the wonderful experiance it was and we will be comming back again. The hostal was very clean and the staff were very nice. The location is easy walking distance to resturants, stores and the town square which was delightful to sit in and just watch the world go by. My only regret is not being able to stay longer! Hoping to see you soon Jairo.

We (my two daughters, their husbands, and I) spent two very enjoyable nights at La Cuadra in Cotacachi. It was immaculately clean and the staff was incredibly helpful. We had access to a full kitchen--very convenient. They parked our car securely each night. The location was ideal—just a few steps from the central plaza & bus stop. Jairo, the manager, deserves a medal for help above and beyond duty. Our checked luggage did not make it to Quito. Jairo waited up until 3:30 am with my son-in-law for the delivery which never came. The following day, he made numerous phone calls to the airline baggage service rep and finally made arrangements for us to pick it up in Quito on our way to our next stop (Baeza). My younger daughter & her husband was in a room with a bath that fronted on the main street. We were concerned that it might be too noisy, but they were delighted when they were awoken just before dawn by a crowing rooster and a wonderful religious festival/parade (candles, balloons, singing, etc.). By the time the rest of us were up, the street was perfectly clean as if it had never happened. She said that it was the highlight of their Ecuador trip.

Room Tip: There were two flights of stairs to our rooms--not a problem for the younger ones. I'm 75 and w...

My mother and I recently traveled to Cotacachi for the first time, and Jairo was there to make getting to know the community a success. As this was a research trip for a retirement location for my mother, we needed to see the true local interaction, not just the tourist experience. What can I say, Jairo made it happen! As for our stay at La Cuadra, we were there about 5 days and I was so thankful for firmer beds as I could finally sleep well. I found that everything I needed was there, and that the location couldn't have been in better proximity to places to eat. One thing you should be aware of, is that most places in Ecuador DO NOT have elevators. This was the same at this location, but should be noted if you are traveling with someone with reduced mobility.

See you again soon Jairo!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the building are quieter, as the hostel is located on the main street into Cota...

My daughter and I stayed for 10 days in late May.
The hotel is kept very clean on a daily basis, which for me is a big plus.
I was pleased to have access to an extremely well equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge with TV and wi fi on the second floor
The view from the terrace is amazing a must see.
We were very happy to have found La Cuadra and Jairo.
He makes you feel like a part of his family, he went out of his way to make our stay a very pleasant one. Also the fact that he speaks fluent English makes for good communication.
Always has a welcoming smile,Jairo we look forward to seeing you again soon.
I would most definitely recommend staying at La Cuadra, were you get incredible value for your money.

May was second trip to this hotel and I will be back again soon. Jario and his staff is very helpful and friendly. I have gotten service beyond my expectation. For a small place, so people may think you get bad service. But I have stayed in 5 star establishments and I get better service at La Cuadra. Jario makes you feel at home like your are part of the family. I say think you again
