“What a wonderful place to rest...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2011

We arrived at Otavalo not knowing quite what to expect. Flor, the assistant manager was extremely helpful in arranging our plans and making our stay comfortable and relaxing. This hotel is truly shows the love of its owner and its concern for its guests. Beautifully done, very clean, very comfortable, and the food was excellent. My wife is gluten intolerant and many restaurants do not present many choices for her. The menu here was varied and even included several vegetarian dishes that my wife was able to enjoy.

Also reasonably priced. i recommend Posada del Quinde to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: many rooms, including 2 suites that will accommodate up to 8 to 10 people.

We stayed at La Posada del Quinde our first three nights in Ecuador. This hotel was a quiet, warm, and friendly place to stay while visiting Otavalo and the neighboring towns. Maggie and staff made our stay feel like we were at a home away from home. A fresh fire was made every evening in the lounge fireplace that made for a relaxing atmosphere. The outside sitting area of the restaurant was scenic and peaceful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a safe and nice place to stay while visiting Otavalo and the neighboring towns.

We really enjoyed our stay. Many plusses: accommodations were very clean, food was delicious and plentiful, staff was friendly and helpful. Maggie is a joy. It was easy to walk from the hotel to the markets. Downsides were minor: beds were fairly hard and uncomfortable and the room was cold, even with the oil space heater. Consequently, after a shower, it became pretty damp. Nonetheless, we will definitely go back.

During my 2-week visit to Ecuador, I stayed at Posada del Quinde and it really was an excellent experience. The place is very close to the downtown area and is gorgeous, very clean, beautiful views, great food at their restaurant Pachamama, and the workers and owner, Maggie, are totally amazing. They treated us like we were family. Maggie has so much information about Otavalo that it made our live and staying much easier. This was a real treat!! Thank you, guys, for being such a great family!

Room Tip: All rooms are good!!

My friend and I had a wonderful stay here. Maggie and her staff were so helpful, and went the extra mile in making the stay comfortable and enjoyable. The entire place was very clean and decorated with a wonderful Ecuadorian flair. The shower was a real treat. It was hot and had tons of pressure (which for Ecuador is rare). The gardens were very relaxing and we were sorry we didn't book for two nights so we would have time to enjoy them more. The Friday night we were there, we enjoyed authentic live Andean music while having a good and reasonably priced dinner. Breakfast was included in our hotel fee and was also very good. I live in Ecuador and go to Otavala quite a bit when friends from the states come to visit. I have stayed in other places, and can honestly say this is the best value for the money I've found. I will continue to stay at this hotel every trip I make from now on. It's the type of place that makes you feel at home away from home.

My parents and I had the pleasure of staying at La Posada del Quinde a couple weeks ago. I was a bit wary of the location in town as I thought there might be too much noise, but on the contrary, the hotel is located at a quiet edge of town but still just blocks from the artisan market and animal market. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and able to check in early. The rooms were very clean, the beds comfortable, water in the shower wonderfully hot. The back garden is really lovely and we enjoyed a mornings breakfast in the garden. Maggie the owner was very attentive and engaging. All in all I would highly recommend this as a place for families or couples when heading to Otavalo.

My stay at La Posada del Quinde in Otavalo was great, I can thoroughly recommend it. I turned up in the middle of the night without having made a reservation and was made to feel instantly welcome.

I was shown to my room, which was really comfortable and great value and woke up to hummingbirds outside my window! Breakfast was included in the price of the room; and like all the meals I had in the hotel's Pachamama Cafe, it was delicious, healthy and fresh.

The staff were extremely helpful, and Maggie the owner was a great resource of local knowledge.

All in all, I was really pleased with my stay there, so if you're heading to Otavalo this would be the place to stay.

Thank you
