“Best place for a long term stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

In Cotacachi if you would like a place with a nice kitchen and large screen tv this is it. English speaking owner is very helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms in the rear are the more quiet.

Cotacachi is a beautiful town with friendly people, a lovely climate and incredible mountains.

We started off at a different hostal which was well recommended, but the "Honeymoon Suite" smelled strongly of disinfectant and had an extremely bright street light right out the window.

We switched to La Cuadra the next day for six nights after a local resident recommended it. He was quite right. Centrally located on Modesto Penaherrea, and within walking distance of restaurants, stores and markets, La Cuadra has both lovely rooms with private baths and rooms with baths in the hall. All the rooms (and I looked at quite a few of them) are attractive and clean. Jairo (pronounced ´´Hi Row´´), who runs La Cuadra is bilingual and is very helpful in providing information, suggestions and directions both for Cotacachi and the surrounding area. The staff (Berta and Jessica) that we met were also very helpful. Wake up in the morning and check out the unbelievable, breathtaking view from the roof of La Cuadra with the mountains surrounding you. In the evening, watch a movie in the living-dining area or play a game of pool (real, not virtual) at the pool table just off the lobby. The shower had good hot water. The sinks only have cold water facets -- which is standard in Ecuador. La Cuadra also has free wi-fi and a kitchen (things the other hostal we stayed at did not offer). Good restaurants (D'Anitas and Serendipity) are within an easy walk. if you want to cook meals or just refrigerate some food. Rooms facing the back are quieter in Cotacachi, but my fiance and I slept pretty well even in a front facing room. We would not hesitate to stay at La Cuadra again.
