Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).
Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.

Very modern / new hostel amazingly well located in the centre. The owners are super friendly and helpful. The property was very cleaned, room very comfortable and nicely decorated where you find all you need. Highly recommending !
Clean, extremely nice hostel! Comfortable beautiful beds, very safe, super kind staff. Very close to everything. Thank you!!
This is probably the best hostel we have stayed in in South America, very central location, friendly, helpful staff with excellent kitchen facilities and clean comfortable rooms. Thoroughly recommend.
Staff was so extremely nice and helpful in every possible way. Super cool rooms, really comfortable beds, immaculately clean bathrooms, perfect location for exploring the city on foot. 100% great.
This is a beautiful property with excellent decor. It was really lovely and comfortable and amazingly clean. The owners went above and beyond when helping us figure out transportation.
Super nice owners: very very friendly and helpful, always ready with a coffee for you and available for a chat! Could not have been any better!
Everything was perfect (hostel, location, rooms, free coffee, kitchen, very clean, ...)! Very friendly staff. They will even bring my postcards to the post office because it is closed on saturday/sunday and I left Otavalo directly to Colombia on Sunday... Muchas Gracias!!! P.S.: IVA was not included in the price in booking. But still very good price/value-relation!!!

Roberto, the manager, is very Nice and helpfull. The location u's Great, the WiFi decent and the price of the rooms is nearly as cheap as a dorm
The location is close to the center of town. And we can see the volcano right there
We liked everything, and our host Roberto in particular. Always very helpful, clear and insightful. Excellent position, perfect views. We will return.
Roberto was extraordinarily helpful. He had a map prepared with lots of useful information. He definitely went the extra mile to make my stay seamless.
Great views, lots of room, hot shower, great host.
Roberto, thw owner or otherwise overseer of the property, is positively one of the biggest sweethearts in all of South America, and probably the world. Everyone is a beautiful friend and life is good, that's the energy emanating from his spirit. Makes you not want to leave. Large bar/restaurant area largely used for nightly viewing of movies projected upon the wall, as opposed to wining and dining. Excellent multi-terraced views with large kitchen and dining area resting upon the apex. Short walk's distance to famous market, and quick drives to Peguche waterfall, San Pablo lake and Imbabura volcano, and Quicocha Lagoon/Cotocachi volcano.
Roberto went out of his way to help me and drove me to the bus station and made sure I got on the right buside.
The view of the volcanos and the mountains from the balcony was awesome. Roberto was very informative and even provided a local map for places to visit; very friendly. People in general in Ecuador are very welcoming and friendly. I will be visiting Otavalo and Hostal Chasqui next new year's eve.
The manager, Roberto, was super friendly and helpful.
The owner Roberto is amazing. He is super friendly and always available for tips and any advice. The kitchen is on the rooftop and you have a really nice view. It's not in the center of Otavalo, but at the same time very nice because it's pretty quiet. We had a great stay - especially thanks to Roberto!

Tomas is very friendly and knowledgable guy with perfect English who gave lots of advices of what to do and where to go in Cotacachi and around.
The staff was outstanding the accommodations were sublime. ..all and all a 10....
The staff, the staff, the staff. The Indigenous couple who run the place are the kindest and most helpful people.
We enjoyed our stay of two nights and the family that was there was the most wonderful part. They are so helpful and just a joy to be around,
The owner, Thomas, speaks perfect English and is extremely friendly and helpful with travel plans. The gardens are quiet and lovely, and the breakfast outstanding.(had the best tamale EVER) I especially loved the homey feeling and the quieter location. I will certainly return here if I travel to Cotacachi.
Yellow Guest House is on outskirts of town but within a 10 minute downhill to downtown. Very quiet location except for the occasional rooster. For those not inclined to walk, Evelyn (the hostess) will call a taxi that charges $1.25 to town (price as of April 2016). YGH has a beautiful yard and very many hummingbirds. Two Lab dogs were friendly and calm. Tomas, the owner was a great help before our arrival and arranged someone to pick us up at the airport in Quito and take us back when we left. Great breakfasts and plenty of hot water. Thanks to Evelyn, Marcos, Mateo and Tomas for making us feel at home. We will be back as Cotacachi is wonderful and now we have a home at the YGH.
This place is nice but its truly the hostsame that makes this place special. Evellyn and Marco are top !!!! They'll help you with everything and with anything possible!
The Yellow Guest House was so comfortable and welcoming I really felt at home. I wish I could have stayed longer.
Caretaker staff were super, host was great. For cold nights, the hot water bottles were a nice touch.
Beautiful house outside the town but close enough to be back into the centre within 6-7 minutes walk. Clean, welcoming, comfortable, wonderful garden to relax in. Fab breakfast each morning.

Beautiful and peaceful. You overlook the city and the staff are great.
Owner/managers were extremely kind, friendly, and helpful. Knowlegable about local remedy plants. Breakfast was fresh, homemade and tasty. The mirador to see over the city were the cap of each evening. The place is a little out of the main city on the hill so the overlook of the town, the valley, and the two volcanos is gorgeous! Advertisement pics are true to. The setting.
Amazing views and super friendly and knowledgeable owners that go out of their way to make you feel at home. The owners occasionally run tours as well and it was the best tour I've had in my three month trip through south America.
While the hostel is a short walk up a hill from centro, the view is well worth staying here. There is a beautiful terrace that overlooks the town. In addition, the decor and atmosphere are great, the room was large and comfortable. But the best part of this hostel were the friendly, kind, and generous hosts. I highly recommend visiting Otavalo, not only for the market, but also for the surrounding trails.
We loved traveling a few minute out of the city traffic and noise. A beautiful hill top location and the great balcony are great for sipping wine, reading and watching the sun sit or rise. We loved this family run hotel.
Everything was more than expected. When visiting Otavalo I will always stay here. The owners do everything to make your stay enjoyable. The views are second to none. VERY CLEAN HOTEL
The views from the roof are hard to match anywhere else in Otavalo. The hostel is walking distance from the market, condor park, and the Peguche waterfall. Keep in mind that since the hostel is located on a slope, a steep uphill walk is required. Alternatively, you can get a taxi from Otavalo for 1$. Jose, the host, cal also arrange private tours to almost anywhere. For example, you can hike to the top of Fuya Fuya for 30$, which includes a drop off at the Laguna Mojanda, a guide (Spanish only), and a pick up after the hike. Jose can also meet you at the airport, which is especially handy if you land late at night.
We loved how friendly the family was! They were very helpful with all of our questions, as well as directions. We ate dinner there one night, which was very reasonable for our family of 4. We also did a tour by them to see the villages and waterfall, and for a ride to Mindo instead of using a taxi with a person we didn't know.
Hostal is located on a hill with fabulous view overlooking the Otavalo. It is nice walk into to the town center. The staff at the Curinan were very friendly and helpful, and even offered to drive our family to see some of the sites around the Otavalo valley when we had trouble with our car one morning. We were fortunately able to sort the problems with our car. However it was very generous and friendly gesture by the hotel manager. The rooms were clean and beds were quite comfortable. I will definitely recommend the Curinan to any of my friends who are traveling to Otavalo.
Wonderful vista overlooking Otavalo below from big balconies. Caring family run hotel, Maltilde, Jose and Joselito are kind and inspiring. Extremely accommodating. All day car tour of area a great add-on.
Featuring free WiFi throughout the property, Hotel Kichwas offers accommodation in Otavalo. Guests can enjoy the on-site restaurant. There are shops at the property. Ibarra is 21 km from Hotel Kichwas, while Tababela is 47 km away. Average score from 10 guest reviews: 9.1/10.
The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to help me find the markets and the local bus station. This is a lovely hotel and I would happily stay there again. The room was spotless and quiet and the bed was comfortable. Very good value for money.
We only stayed one night, butbwe were very impressed by this budget hotel. All of the staff were very friendly and the breakfast included was great. The hotel itself has been newly renovated, so the facilities were clean and comfortable. The location is great too - only a couple blocks from the main square and a short 5-10 walk from the bus terminal.
Juan and his family were super nice and answered all my questions about the area like pros. The internet was down when I got in, but they worked it out and it was good before long. Room was pretty standard, but for the price, hospitality, and location I would totally recommend Hotel Kichwas :)
Very kind reception, breakfast in the coffeeshop opposite the house was very good, Hot water problem was solved quickly, very caring. Staff was very helpful, fulfilled our wish of upper floor and quite room immediatly. Located only a 3 minutes walk to the famous indigenous market (saturday).
La atencion y la amabilidad de Blanca y Juan fue excelente. Todo nos encantó.
Los dueños del hotel, son unas personas muy amables. Yo y mi familia vamos a regresar porque nos gusto el servicio y el hotel.
Aardige behulpzame familie.goede lokatie en schoon.
maison très bien entretenu , avec tout le confort, personnel agréable et souriant ? Très bien placé !!

The people were great, the area is just surrounded by nature and animals and it is a great location for all the hikes around. Jose will help you out with all the info you need. This is a rural location and rural facilities. If you look for comfort go some place else. This is a perfect spot for your soul.
Amazing place to stay, off the beaten track. The family were so friendly. If you want to stay somewhere authentic then this is the place for you. Lots of friendly animals to keep you company as well as a few guitars to entertain yourself. Wifi is at the reception in town just a 5 min walk from the farm. Cant recommend this place enough!
We liked the surroudings and the athmosphere, very autentic. The room was very speciel and cozy. There was no electricity and the candlelights made it even cosier! You live close with the family and it's possible to join them for dinner. José is a great host, he did what ever possible to make our stay great and help us to explore the area. It's very easy and cheap to travel with local buses around the area.
Cet établissement est 100% naturel. les propriétés sont d'une gentillesse incroyable. je recommande cette place si vous aviez besoin de nature, énergie et échange. Merci pour ce magnifique experience. Marion
Super séjour, pratiquement chez l'habitant au milieu des animaux dans la montagne. Le rapport/qualité prix est juste imbattable et si vous voulez vous imprégner de la culture locale il n'y a pas mieux. À l'arrivée, une visite du verger est faite où l'on peut utiliser les herbes pour le thé. On recommande aussi les épis de maïs !!! José proposé même de vous amener faire une randonnée. Excellent sejour, on recommande à 100% si vous voulez profiter des alentours d'Otavalo hors des sentiers battus. À peine 5 min en bus!
Era una noche lluviosa y fría, pero al llegar al hostel del tío José y su familia nos atendieron con calidez, una infusión caliente y algo para comer justo lo que necesitábamos para poder reponernos del viaje. Después nos llevó a lo que iba a ser nuestra habitación, nos encanto cada una de las cosas y detalles que había conseguido hacer a mano reciclando materiales y el hermoso mural que daba el nombre a la habitación (obra de una pareja anterior que quizo dejar algo de ellos en el hostel). Ya al amanecer pudimos apreciar otro de los espacios del hostel, la huerta, lugar en el que podías tomar algunas hierbas para prepararte infusiones. Tontamente hermosa y tranquila la estancia.
Este sitio es espectacular, es muy rústico y no es un hostel al uso, es un campo cerquita de un pueblo, precioso con un anfitrión genial, José es un chaman del buen rollo, en este alojamiento se respira positividad, buena voluntad y mucha hospitalidad, por ello si hay alguna pequeña incomodidad se obvia... Nosotros nos alojamos en la cabaña redonda que es preciosa, y al no tener luz se ilumina con velas es genial y tiene un toque romántico. Genial. El hostel es un trabajo comunitario y suele haber voluntarios, dan ganas de quedarse más tiempo allí. El entorno es muy bonito, muy verde y rodeados de animales que tienen.
En principio ibamos a quedarnos solo dos dias pero estuvimos tan bien que alargamos hasta estar 10. Perfecto para relajarte y descansar. Además Jose y su familia son encantadores.
L'hôtel est situé en pleine nature à quelques centaines de mètres du centre d'iluman ( qui est à 10 min en bus de la gare d'ottavalo ). L'endroit est apaisant et très beau. L'accueil est très chaleureux. Permet d'être en contact direct avec la famille, les vaches, poules, chiens et cochons d Indes ! Plusieurs balades à faire, facile d'accès avec tous les bus.
Los dueños son muy amables , el lugar es para relajar y admirar la naturaleza ya que puedes apreciar las montañas , el campo y las plantaciones . Y puedes hacer tes con sus plantitas 😊
La Luna offers accommodation in Otavalo. There is a restaurant and guests can have fun at the games room. Quito is 48 km from the property. A private or shared bathroom is provided. Towels are offered. La Luna also includes a barbecue. Average score from 67 guest reviews: 9.0/10.
The La Luna compound is about a 10-15 minute ride from Otavalo, up on the side of a mountain. The views are spectacular! My room was in a small building away from the main building. It had 4 rooms in it, each (I believe) with a small fireplace. The rooms are neat and tidy. Covers on the bed are thick and warm and made from native wool materials. I had a pasta dinner there which was very good. In the morning breakfast (included) was AWESOME!! - consisting of juice, granola with yogurt, a large bowl of fresh fruit, 2 rolls with butter and jam, and a good cup of coffee. Just the thing to get you off to another great day!
I loved the fireplaces including the one in my room.
The view and feeling of the place was perfect!The beautiful fireplace in the common area was a rare treat and made the stay comfortable and perfect for a cup of tea and a good book.I will always take the time to go stay here, it was a peaceful moment in a busy time of my trip and I will recommend it to all travelers.
The coffee with breakfast was amazing and you could have as much as you wanted. The main dining room was cozy and inviting. The garlic shrimp with fries was divine (all the food was really good). The shower was hot. The place is tucked away in the mountains so it was quiet.
Million dollar view overlooking Otavalo and mountains. Friendly owner and staff, good breakfast.
Room was super comfy & cozy. Meals at the onsite restaurant were delicious and fairly priced. After a long day of hiking, we also enjoyed the local craft beer from Otavalo that they offer at the lodge. There's a short but great hiking trail you can walk to from the lodge a nearby waterfall. Lagunas de Mojanda is a $12 taxi away, each way. Definitely worth it on a clear day! We also enjoyed the views and the friendly dogs that run around the property.
The owners were really friendly and then start extremely warm and professional. It was great to be in a beautiful location but close to hikes and the market. The food was delicious and reasonable and they have a great DVD collection for the TV room too. I'd stay at least 3 days so there's time for FuyeFuye volcano hike, Cuyecocha crater hike and market day.
Great mountain getaway for peace and quite. This is not a luxury place. It's rustic and charming and the staff are great. Don't expect high end services or installations. Go for the quiet.
Beautiful setting with access to nature walks. Staff very helpful with organizing transportation and accommodating our needs.
A good place for someone interested in staying just outside the city of Otavalo. Breathtaking views and tranquil. Difficult to know from the Booking site info whether you are reserving a private room with bath versus a shared room or a private room with shared bath. Also, hotel seems to get info from Booking site delayed, so if you book shortly before your stay is scheduled to begin, contact the hotel directly to confirm they have the reservation.

He is a true gentleman, and sincerly interested in the well-being of his guests as well as being an interesting and well educated character. The hostal and the atmosphere is a reflection of these truly lovely people. We'll be back soon.
Excellent breakfast. Really calm place. Best value for the money!
We loved this place so much! For sure the best adress in Otavalo!
Excellent location , good breakfast. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Definitely would stay again! Muchas gracias!!!!!

Bed was very comfortable and Paul was great with communication with our last minute, late night reservation.
Great service any time of day. Nice kitchen and break room.
The owner was fantastic. I got very sick and he was so very kind. He personally took me to the doctor, and on top of that took me in a cab for blood tests. When he got me back to the hostel, he checked on me repeatedly, made sure I was taking my meds and he brought me food! I cannot say enough about the kind treatment I received. All the staff is great. The place is super clean, the facilities are great. It's a no-brainer. When in Otavalo go to the Flying Donkey
Extra friendly staff who gave us a great reccomendation for food at the Ref Pub!Couldn't have done more!

We used Mashy's as our base to travel to Ibarra, the crater lake and other places and the location - steps away from the bus terminal - was great for this. Also a short walk to the market. Well equipped kitchen. Really quick wifi. Would definitely stay here again.
I like this hostel's location! If you wanna go to bus terminal, just cross street! And kitchen also good,, but there's knife is poor and no cutting board.. But it's fine. And there's cozy living room. I stayed in living room most of time I stay this hostel.
Strong WiFi, a good location just in front of bus terminal
Good location, close to the bus terminal. Easy walking distance to the plaza de ponchos. Big rooms with clean bathroom.
Really good family run hostel, more like a hotel. Clean, bright, secure and spacious rooms. Excellent location (right beside the bus station and only 5 minute walk from the central market). Great value for money. Would definitely stay here again.
Good location, had a nice kitchen was clean and pleasant.
Large room, big window for light, comfy bed. Clean room and private bathroom. Staff were welcoming and knowledgeable.
Location - hop off the bus and cross the street to hotel. Staff was friendly. Rooms were clean and big; they also came with towels, toilet paper, and soap. Hot water worked well.
very clean, good big room with TV, hot water, comfy and lots of light. Great location right by the bus station. Good value, for me as a solo traveller in a room with private bathroom and double bed!

Our hosts were very helpful and the apartment was clean, well equipped and comfortable
We liked everything! Jordi and Enma were extremely helpful and kind; they helped us get comfortable by driving us to a restaurant and taking us to the bus terminal the first time. They helped us get taxis and find fun things to do as well as get used to the customs of the country and city. If we could rate them higher than '10', we would! The apartment was clean and comfortable--a great value! When we're in Otavalo again or know of friends who will be visiting, we will definitely see if we or they can stay here again.
As everyone else has mentioned, the owners go above and beyond to help out. They were extremely friendly and made staying here a great choice. Only $1.50 taxi to town. Nice and secluded area outside of the main part of Otavalo. Very spacious and comfortable apartment.
This place is great value with a very friendly helpful management
Very nice owners! They even offered to bring us to the airport. Great beds, very clean, good location. Lots of space.
Owners were super helpful and friendly. 3 bedroom apartment was clean and very spacious. Full kitchen and laundry very convenient. A little ways from town center but bus stop only a few meters away and only 30 cents for bus or taxi to anywhere in town for $1.50 - $2.00. Little grocery store 2 minutes walk. Very convenient.
Very friendly and helpfull owners! Appartment with everything you wish. Quit area only 2 km from town
Having an apartment close but not in the downtown area was fantastic. We were just a couple of minutes away from Parque Centro! The owners were fantastic,helping with information, what we should be paying & suggestions for us. For our grandchildren it was wondeful! They made a friend & the owners were very caring. The whole apartment was very clean & we didn't need to buy anything except food! Will definitely be back when we go to Otavalo! Gracias

Excellent guesthouse (B&B) with fantastic hosts and quiet location with fantastic views This guest house is located in a private Condominium about 3 km from Otavalo. Very nice house, spectacular views onto the surrounding mountains and above all fantastic hosts. They treat you as if you are part of the family. The husband is a musician, so get him to play a few tunes ! They took us around to show the market in Otavalo, the Lake in the national Reserve, surrounding towns and even to a night -club with traditional Andean music ! Excellent breakfast .
Room was comfortable, views were amazing. Location is great in a semi-rural area, near Otavalo. Place is quiet and staff was superb.
The location was beautiful and the owners of the property very kind and helpful
Maria, Eduardo and Juan were very gracious hosts. I could not have asked for better.The room and the service met all my expectations. The location is beautiful and serene. If I were to return to Otovalo I would book again. I highly recommend La Casa del Lago.
Everything. This is my second time and it is still excellent.
Maria and Eduardo are wonderful hosts and our experience of Otovalo was made all the better because of them. Loved how breakfast was almost a family affair, in the kitchen together.
The hosts are incredibly nice, take care of everything.
Alberto and Maria were freindly and accommodating.
Breakfast, the hospitality of Eduardo and Maria, their wonderfull music, the singing voice of Maria and the guitar of Eduardo. Free laundry and very nice view.

Sentirme como en casa pero sin trafico y respirando aire puro.
La ubicación fue fantástica porque es un ambiente de campo muy cercano a la ciudad y a lugares turísticos.
Schönes, weitläufiges Gelände etwas abseits der Stadt, die jedoch fußläufig (ca. 12 min.) erreichbar ist. Sehr großzügiges Zimmer und Bad.

They allowed us to store bags after checkout so we could stay in Otavalo longer.
Great location. Walked right out the front door and was greeted by the Saturday market. Clean, beautiful rooms and very friendly staff.
Perfect location, right in the heart of the Otavalo township. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds, spacious rooms. A lovely friendly family run hotel. Great breakfast.
First of all, the best thing in this hotel is the exellent location near the Los Ponchos Market. Although it is quite and very clean. I defenetly recommend this hotel
We arrived early in the morning at 1 am. The hostel accommodated us with adequate lodging. The next morning we were moved to rooms that were exactly as advertised. They were roomy and very clean. The staff were very friendly helpful and informative.
Perfect location, great price, and very friendly employees. The breakfast was great!
The hotel was clean and the staff was very helpful. The included breakfast was delicious.

The bed was great and I loved the view. Breakfast was excellent and the staff was the best. Very helpful with local vendors.
Relaxed atmosphere, awesome breakfast & the family hospitality was amazing, centre of town and close too transportation, magnificent views from second story.
During my 2months touring Ecuador and staying at quite a few hotels, B&B's & apartment rentals, I have to say that this is probably the best in the country. From the decore to its cleanliness and wonderful owners & staff, I would highly recommend La Cuadra to anyone seeking a great experience in Cotacachi. I'm planning on returning there in December, I enjoyed it so much.
Simple, clean, with outstandingly friendly and helpful owners. Divine coffee shop serving delicious coffee with a good breakfast daily. Chatty locals drop by often for interesting conversations.When I didn't know where to buy conditioner for my frazzled hair, Carmen the coffee queen dashed out and got me three packets. Location right off the main plaza in front of the lovely church. Convenient to everything.
Jairo and Carmen were warm And gracious hosts. No better place to stay in Cotacachi in our opinion!
Jairo was wonderful and went above and beyond to make our experience in Cotacachi the best. He speaks English and helped us with our Spanish.
The room was spacious and clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful. On site kitchen was a plus. The proximity to the center of town and restaurants and shopping is very nice!
Host was amazing as was his breakfast. Great guy. Location great.

I enjoyed the rustic atmosphere; also, the family was very friendly. The dinners were tasty; they used organic products grown on the family's property - an excellent example of Ecuadorian cooking.
The accommodation is hosted by an indigenous family that own a lot of animals like pigs, guinea pigs, cows, dogs and chicken. They also plan their own vegetables. It was a really nice experience, the talk in spanish was easy and the couple made us a lemon balm tee upon our arrival. The rooms are located around the familiy´s house, but really clean and good equipped. Our bed was comfortable and the bathroom had hot water. Absolutely recommendable for those, who want to experience the real Ecuador!
la amabilidad de la familia y su calidez como personas. estàn dispuestos a complacer al huèsped y a compartir de sus vivencias en la comunidad. todo esto sirve de vìnculo para conocer algo màs de una cultura de nuestro paìs que no se conoce en convivir diario de la ciudad.
Era justo lo que buscábamos...aparte que la comida muy buena y quienes nos hospedaron personas muy sencillas amables y fácil de tratar
Gostei do atendimento. Todo mundo é muito atencioso e educado!

A very nice and peaceful place with a view over the lake. The owners are really friendly and cook really well! Bring warm clothes as the nights are a bit cold ;-)
Fantastic location with awesome views. Very helpful and friendly people.
The views were FANTASTIC!!! The food was wonderful.
Once you find the place, you're in paradise, but there should really be a better description of how to arrive on Booking.com. We arrived at night, when it was already dark and as there are no (visible) signs that was virtually impossible. But once you arrive, it's a wonderful place in a gorgeous setting with very friendly hosts. Good coffee, and great pets!
Beautiful views. The family apartment was spacious with large bedrooms. Hot water!
Amazing view from the location high up on the hillside. Quite a struggle to get up there though in your own transport but not impossible. Owner was very accommodating and very friendly. Really rural and remote if that's what you're looking for. Room was quite cold at night so be prepared. Breakfast was good
La ubicación es excelente, ya que tiene una vista maravillosa, y el contacto con la naturaleza es genial, un lugar ideal para descansar y desconectarse de la rutina. La atención es excelente los dueños son unas personas muy amable, 100% recomendado...
Viaje con mi novia habíamos programado un solo día de estadía y nos quedamos dos! Realmente fascinados con el lugar, la vista y la atención de Ana. La cena y el desayuno muy ricos! Espero volver muy pronto a Samay toa.
La vista es espectacular desde un lugar muy tranquilo en las faldas del taita Imbabura. Los anfitriones muy amables y nos ayudaron con lo que se necesita.

We had the top level appartment, which is spacious and even has a fireplace (which we used one day because it was cold). The hotel is situated in the center of the city and everything was in walking distance. We made excursions by taxi to the handicraft villages surrounding Otavalo and to the Condor parc on the mountain above the city. Both excursions were very interesting.
The bed was extra comfy with lots of blankets for a good nights sleep. The water in the shower was piping hot and the breakfast good with great coffee. The in house restaurant was the best food we ate in otavalo, well trained staff. Good wifi.
We had an issue in our travel planning and realized that we were due at the Quito airport at 11:59pm the night we'd booked a room at Doña Esther. We contacted the hotel to let them know our issue and to see if there was any way we could come early to shower and eat, since we wouldn't be staying the night (sadly). They were remarkable, not only welcoming us any time but they offered us a discount on the room and organized a ride to the airport for us. We can report that we had a number of meals at the restaurant over the course of a month, and the food is some of the best in Otavalo (from a tourist's perspective). Hot shower, wonderfully friendly staff, great internet. This is a perfect spot for tourists looking to be in the heart of Otavalo in a comfortable space. We worked with Wendy over email and Adrianna at the desk. Everything was flawless even though we had unusual circumstances. It felt luxurious. Highest recommendations for Doña Esther! We are grateful
Quiet location within walking distance of central Otavalo.
A beautiful little hotel full of character in a great location. Amazing breakfast - delicious granola, fresh fruit and other choices. Great lunches and dinners in the restaurant also. Lovely helpful staff.
The ambiance was so welcoming. The rooms were nicely decorated. I liked that it had an interior courtyard. The restaurant menu was varied. I had porkchops in cranberry sauce which I liked. We were given canelazo and popcorn. Service was outstanding. Wendy even organized a car pickup service with Luis from Quito roundtrip for $130. The place was excellent for going to the famous Saturday market and walking around the city. Great choice for us!
Loved the character of the place (beautiful old wood floors, doors and trim) with a lush central patio and the gracious, helpful staff. Our room for 3 was wonderful. We had a tiny balcony and left the doors open at night to get the delightfully cool air. There were warm wool blankets on the bed......my favorite combination
Cosy room, really friendly people, good restaurant with breakfast and dinner. Location was perfect in the middle of the center. The were really helpfull with booking tours in the surrounding area.
The hotel is very conveniently located right next to the main square, Parque Bolivar. The rooms are simply furnished but very comfortable. The staff were always friendly and helpful.
This place is a gem, the owners have made this hotel into something special the staff are excellent, friendly and efficient. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was delicious. Fantastic location, very clean.

This beautiful hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Otavalo with huge markets just a few blocks away. The facilities were great and the breakfast was delicious! The center park was fun to visit and there were many things to see all around this hotel.
Me and my wife (late 20's) travelled with my parents (in early 60's). Warm and friendly staff. Large common areas and courtyards for socialising, lovely rooms. Good reliable facilities (eg Wifi). Nice breakfast. Location superb - one block from main Plaza, two blocks from Plaza de Ponchos with the famous market. Later checkout that most hotels which is a big plus.
location, location, location. clean, comfortable rooms, minutes from the market
Very friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, great location
Super friendly staff and a great location. Nice courtyards.
Location was wonderful and very easy to get to the animal market and general artisan market in the square. Front desk staff were very nice and the breakfast was lovely. The design of the interior is a multi level atrium so it gives the feeling of spaciousness and there is a pool table and foosball game.
The location and the rooms and it is beautiful decorated
Very pleasant staff. Great breakfast. Good location close the the main plaza and walking distance to the bus terminal.

Extraordinary staff, kind, friendly and always trying to please your needs. Extra super breakfast. Good location close to town center
The beds were comfortable, the breakfasts were great with fresh fruit, juice and eggs, and the breakfast rolls were so fresh. The owners were so hospitable and treated us like good friends. We had dinner together and played card games. A lot of this depends on your attitude and willingness to interact with them in a similar manner. Their English isn't good and neither was our Spanish but they tried to communicate with us. We had no trouble at all.
The place is presented as new. Great locality. Friendly and helpful manager and staff. Good breakfast.
This place really needs to be told about. This was a luxurious place to stay. Rooms were beautiful very comfortable. Nice furniture. It looked very new.Lovely marble tile floors. Great breakfast. Lovely staff. Helps if you know a bit of Spanish. Best value for money I've found in Ecuador. .
There was a festival ongoing and the owner volunteered to move us to a room on the rear away from the street
Great place to rest up. Very attentive staff and manager. Very quiet. Good location, close walking distance to everything in town.
It is a hidden gem in the heart of Cotacachi. Very close to the town square and shopping street. It is a very clean hotel run by a local friendly couple.
The warmth & friendliness from all was wonderful for our entire stay. We were met graciously by the owner & given a tour of the grounds. Afterwards, we were shown all the various fruit trees in his back yard. There's a little patio overlooking the back where we had a nice breakfast the following morning The entire hotel/hostel was immaculately clean . El Roy is on a quiet street conveniently located few blocks from bus station, large church& park, center of town. We would definitely stay there again on a visit to Cotacachi
This new and lovely hotel is sparkly clean and very comfortable. The breakfast served by Anita is delicious, and Colonel Ramon Sanchez is a gracious host who goes out of his way to make guests comfortable.
I stayed at El Roy for 11 nights and had an outstanding experience. Having been a business traveler for over 30 years, I know what is important to me while staying at a hotel. El Roy is extremely clean with a great bed and plenty of hot water. I always felt very safe. My breakfast was prepared fresh each morning and I enjoyed every bite. Roman treated me like family and I felt very welcomed. No doubt I will return to stay at El Roy again!

Everything was perfect. A beautiful hotel in a beautiful garden
Warm and gracious staff in a near-Paradise environment. Full spa, gourmet dining, elegant rooms with fireplaces, and peacocks on the beautiful grounds! This is an ideal place for total relaxation.
Very welcoming atmosphere. Calm and peaceful surroundings. Beautiful gardens. Great location 10 mins walking distance from centre of cotacachi. Wonderful spa and pool. Superbly comfortable rooms/suites. Extremely attentive personnel great attention to detail. A real pleasure to stay there for a few days.
Everything! From the staff to the rooms, the amazing food and the fact that a log fire was lit every evening to welcome you back after dinner as it was a tad fresh in the evenings!
First and foremost, the staff was more attentive then any other place I have visited (and I have traveled the world). The grounds were absolutely breathtaking. The food was delicious, authentic to the locale, and served with wonderful and unexpected "extra" details (I.e., a music box playing a soothing song from the Phantom of the Opera, inside a tasting of the chef's latest creation on a little spoon; the main course served in on a silver plate with cover removed by the staff to reveal the chef's design). The spa services were among the best I have ever had. The attention to detail never ceased. We left La Mirage in a very relaxed and content state. It felt like we visited the Garden of Eden.
A gorgeous estate, beautiful and comfortable rooms, a lot of peackoks walking around, many hummingbirds flying by, impeccable service, delicious food, highly recommended!
Beautiful place, great service, and excellent food. Could not ask for more. One of the best hotel experiences we have ever had.
-) Bed was wonderful (little warm water bottle after dinner was placed for extra comfort) -) Fireplace was on in every bedroom, after diner -) Garden with peacocks -) Lovely food and staff
Lovely, comfortable hotel set in beautiful gardens full of peacocks and humming birds. Excellent service - everyone so friendly and welcoming; fantastic food. Extra touches like a fire in your room and a hot water bottle in your bed every night. Really a luxury experience.

I chose Tambo Inti because my friends were staying down the road at Las Palmas. I was the only guest at Tambo Into for 2 days. Anna Maria was a great hostess and super helpful, plus she's a good cook! The beds were comfy & the room was pleasant. If you like peace & quiet, this is a good place with beautiful surroundings, but it's quite a ways out of town, probably best suited for someone with a car. They also offer a phone with free service to the US, which was nice.
Es un lugar muy hermoso, rodeado de naturaleza, el personal muy amable 100% recomendado

The most lovely hosts! Absolutely calm atmosphere, stunning views, delicious organic food, which is grown at this wonderful old hacienda. No neighbours, great walks, lovely animals. However, the owners happily organise trips and activities and know everything about the area. So they make sure that the guests can enjoy the remoteness and discover the best places of the region at the same time.
The warm welcome from Chilita & her continued warmth & caring were wonderful during my stay! Chilita's cooking is worth the visit! Rosindo's tour of the immense grounds of the hacienda in his truck to see llamas, cows & local vegetation added to my stay! And the lovely Karla,who interpreted for me, as my Spanish is so limited, was an asset! The cows mooing in the morning & the birds singing made me feel like I had found the ideal idyllic setting, in the Andes, for my last few days in Ecuador!
I loved hanging out with the owner in the kitchen, talking about the property and life in Ecuador while she prepared my delicious organic meals from ingredients grown on the hacienda. Her husband gave me a tour of the property, explaining the cosmovision of the indigenous people who once and still live in the area, and showing me sacred sites. The property is gorgeous and peaceful, and the attention will make you feel right at home.
Amazing owners - very attentive, best food we had during our 2 month trip to Ecuador, the property is incredible and the owner likes to show it off - Inca ruins, "mystical" places of the indigenous, fantastic plants, etc.
Everything! The food is gourmet. The beds were so comfortable I didn't want to get out of bed. The setting is so peaceful. The hosts were very gracious and made us feel at home.
The hospitality and warmth of the host family was above and beyond what anyone could expect. The meals are gourmet and prepared by the lady of the hacienda who was trained at Le Cordon Bleu and the 200 year old hacienda and grounds are spectacular!
The family run hacienda was a joy. The entire staff were smiling and the hospitality was great . Very good food as well . Veranda time listening to the birds and relaxing was great .
The hosts and staff were amazing. The food was spectacular. Lovely stay.
Great place -unlike anywhere else. Girls had a ball, food was fab and we enjoyed a tour around. Beds were comfy. Hot water bottles at night were welcome
We stayed at Hacienda San Isidro with my wife, 2.5 years old boy and 9 months old baby girl. The house is beautiful and Doña Chela and her husband were really kind and got all we needed for our kids. Something important, the room and bedsheets were very clean. The walk around de hacienda was nice and our kids really enjoyed. We will definitely comeback in the future.
Offering a restaurant, Casa Mojanda is located in Otavalo. This beautiful lodge offers spacious cottages with free daily breakfast, private parking and Wi-Fi. Each cottage has a private balcony overlooking the surrounding mountains. Average score from 35 guest reviews: 9.0/10.
We had an unexpected delay in Quito. When we arrived late we received a warm welcome and cozy fireplace. We even were served some food and wine although we hadn't made arrangements for this. One of us had an injury when we arrived and the manager made sure we got an ice pack for the night. A drive up a steep road takes you to a setting with dramatic mountain views. The staff were so helpful with our every need.
The managers are wonderful hosts, they are friendly, knowledgable and helpful. They provided me with good ideas for exploring the area and for shopping. Casa Mojanda has it's own tranquil spot overlooking verdant pastures with views of the volcano in the distance. The individual cabins are comfortable & well appointed. The included breakfasts are varied and excellent. The dinners are also very fine. The Casa uses greens and other vegetables from their garden. Wish I could have stayed longer than 3 nights.
Their chef does incredible work, the best food we ate in Ecuador. Jorge, the manager is truly a gem. We were so cared for and supported - I've never worked with a concierge who could top this service. Beautiful grounds, wood fired Japanese soaking tub, views that can't be described in words... I could go on and on but come see for yourself!
Beautiful location, great hosts, great food, we loved our stay at Casa Mojanda.
Beautiful hotel with a fantatic garden, delicious food, gracious hosts.
The staff is amazing. Even the owners are involved with the guests. They are efficient, friendly and go out of their way to make the stay a great one. The food is fabulous as well as healthy. Firewood is delivered to your door each afternoon and there is a fire crackling in the fireplace when you return from dinner. The grounds are stunning and the view beautiful and unending. Even the other guests are terrific. Christmas Eve was one big party. You can't beat dancing with and to a local Ecuadorian band.
Amazing scenery, friendly people, unique place, unforgetable experience.
Friendly, helpful staff, meals from home grown food and beautiful setting
Super comfortable and relaxing. Beautiful view and great food. Wonderful service. Friendly dogs who guided us on a hike to a nearby waterfall.
My teenage daughter and I loved Casa Mojanda. Beautiful setting and lots to do in the area. Breakfast was delicious! Management was very helpful in planning excursions and caring for guests. Highly recommend!

What a little gem. We arrived late at night and while the inn was a little difficult to find in the dark, it was well worth the search. The property is a little piece of paradise tucked away just above the animal market. They have a beautiful large garden where they grow all the food that they then use in the kitchen. The rooms are equipped with a fireplace and hot water bottles are waiting for you in your bed. The property has lamas and a few dogs and the small houses where you stay are colourful with an old school charm - though very well kept and clean. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and very helpful with a plethora of recommendations outside the regular tourist attractions. I would recommend staying here in a heartbeat.
This place is so wonderfully landscaped you are simply overwhelmed by the flowers and beauty. The cottages are lovely and the staff excellent. We had a bit of a leak on the bathroom floor. They apologized for being unable to fix it immediately then offered to move us to a different cottage. If you are looking for a wonderful, romantic spot in Otavalo this is an excellent choice. It isn't inexpensive but certainly very reasonably prices for all the beauty it offers.
Each room has a little fire place that is lit in the evenings - also hot water bottles are laid in the beds while you're having dinner. There are humming birds in the garden and lamas and everyone is very friendly and helpful.
Made a fire in our room and put a hot water bottle in our bed. Food was good. Gardens around the property were beautiful
The vibe there was awesome! It was so relaxing, so secluded - and the access to the local markets and city was perfect. Also - having a personal fire built in your room each night added the perfect touch.
This place is beautiful! Very quiet and clean, with very good restaurant offering local food. After dinner, you will find a fire burning in fireplace in you room.
Great place! We loved the grounds and the hacienda. Staff was excellent, especially the manager Cesar, very accommodating. Food was very tasty, and great, we ended up eating there every night. Fireplace in our cottage was lit very night, along with hot water bottles in our bed. One of our best stays in Ecuador!
Extraordinary service of lighting fire in my casita while I was at dinner. Turning down bed clothes to find a warm cozy hot water bottle.
Every night a roaring fire in our sitting room fireplace to take off the evening chill. And the hot water bottles--such a treat! Lovely breakfast, exceptional staff.
Beautiful place! The rooms and houses were very cozy and surrounded by outstanding scenery. I liked being close to Otavalo, but still having a country side feeling. The highlight was definitively the fireplace in the room, which was lighted by the staff during dinner time. The breakfast and dinner were very good at a reasonable price.

THE SETTING, THE LANSCAPE, THE CABINS WERE NICE AND CLEAN.
The grounds and rooms are absolutely gorgeous - we especially loved the in-room fireplace. Nice and quiet. Friendly, helpful staff. I definitely hope to come back. Note: I've seen other complaints about breakfast (not included in the room price), but we easily ordered off the menu and while it was more expensive than most places in Ecuador, it was a very nice breakfast at a beautiful spot.

The artwork on the steps behind the hotel is gorgeous and the view waiting for you at the top is worth every step. The Staff was warm and welcoming.
The staff made vegetable soup from scratch just for me. It was delicious and so welcome after a day of bus travel.
