Just spent a weekend here. The place is beautiful and located on a quiet hillside with amazing views. The staff were very friendly and it was a very relaxing place. We stayed in the blue room which cost us $32 for 2 people (w/breakfast) and we had a shared bathroom with 1 other room but the room was unoccupied. The shower had hot water which was very nice since it gets a bit chilly at night.
We were in a little building with 4 rooms but 2 of the rooms have their own bathrooms and a fireplace while the other 2 rooms shared a bathroom and did not have a fireplace. Our room was cozy (and very clean) with a little heater that was provided, we were plenty warm. The main house is nice with a dining room and a little TV/game room. The food was decent and the staff were very friendly. From the hotel, it was about a 15 minute cab ride into Otavalo ($4-5) and you could walk but it would be tough coming back since its all uphill. There are 4 friendly dogs on property that loved to beg for food, but they weren't aggressive. At night, the fireplace kept the dining room warm. They also have a dorm room which I checked out (it was empty) and it was nice but it was chilly in there and it didn't look like they had a heater.
From the hotel, we walked about 30 minutes to a nice waterfall, went into town to check out the animal and craft market, and took a cab to lake Mojanda for some hiking. Its a beautiful place for peace and quiet but just know that you are out of town and have to take cabs back and forth. No wi-fi though or internet though.
