“Otavalo hospitality excellance”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Maggie, Suzie and Pat took great care of us on our three night stay. The hotel is on the edge of the city downtown so it makes it an easy walk to visit the market or anything central you may to visit. Our booked room was the suite and we realized it may be too large for our needs with much of the space dedicated to four beds and the large kitchen (and we needed one bed/ no kitchen). The morning after our late arrival, Maggie offered us a more appropriate room and had us check the location first. Ground floor on the edge of the north wing and we were credited the savings for the lesser cost. This stay was very pleasant and our hosts were superb. This is not a luxury accomdation but for Ecuador, it was everything we could have hoped for, and most of all the owners/staff were exceptional.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to face the gardens, but second floor may has more street noise, cars, barking dogs a...

This hotel is very beautiful, clean and comfortable. The grounds are exceptional. Staff are very friendly and always willing to help. Meals are good quality, however service can be a tad slow if there are several people eating at the same time.It is not the least expensive accommodations but it is worth the extra cost. The one fault, and it seems to be a problem throughout Ecuador is the lack of hot water. Apparently here the water heater is old and in the far end of the building

Room Tip: Ask to get a room closer to the water heater/boiler if possible

First of all, thank you for having taken the time to leave a review of the hotel. The entire staff and I appreciate the time that our guests take to leave comments! Our guests can help us to improve in areas that we are needing improvement, as well as to be aware of what we are doing well and motivate us to continue to work hard to offer our guests the best stay possible.

In terms of your "complaint" regarding hot water, I just wanted to let you know that we recently installed a new, state-of-the-art hot water system with recirculation throughout the hotel--all of our guests will have hot water 24 hours a day and within seconds of turning on the tap. Your feedback was the final straw in deciding to go ahead with the installation, so thank you very much.

Absolutely loved the accommodations. The people at the resort were all so friendly and helpful and could not do enough to help make our stay special. They helped point us in the direction of local stops to enjoy. The hot water bottles at night were an extra special treat for our feet! Overall one of the best hotels we have stayed at in the whole world!

Room Tip: Suite was amazing with lots of sleeping space and a kitchen area.

Our stay at La Posada del Quinde was absolutely perfect. Maggie, the owner and her amazing staff did everything within their power to make our stay delightful. They went overboard. The views of the volcanoes & the beautiful gardens are stunning. Not to mention the premier restaurant of Otavalo right in our own Hotel. What a great surprise that was! One of the best hotels in Ecuador. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Windows at the back overlooking the garden & volcano.

Otavalo was the swan song of our Ecuador experience and Las Posada del Quinde served as a wonderful springboard for our return to North America.

It was indeed a pleasure to be a guest of the hotel for three amazing days and we thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations, the staff, La Pachamama Restaurant, the Otavalo locale and its people. The natural fireplace in the common area followed by the evening hot water bottle for bedtime comfort was a special treat.

We were treated to a terrific evening of Andes music from local musicians to highlight the amazing menu of La Pachamama Restaurant from which we sampled every item. Everything from the menu, including the service, was exquisite.

The trip in the hotel van from Otavalo to the Quito airport (1.5 hrs) was very pleasant and comfortable (interestingly the trip to Quito from the Quito airport also took 1.5 hrs).

A trip to Otavalo and La Posada del Quinde is a must for any traveller to this beautiful country.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of November 2013. The hotel is situated a short walk from the Saturday market and with in an easy walk to many restaurants and shops. The owner Maggie is a great hostess and she is very fun to talk to as she has traveled extensively. Don't forget to say hi to Pacha "the Andean Fox". An extremely friendly, and energetic dog. The rooms are basic but extremely comfortable and the staff will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable....if you need anything at all, all you need to do is ask. It is very evident that Maggie takes very good care of her staff. The fire place is fantastic in the evenings and, as has been stated many times, the food at their restaurant is great. All in all, we would stay here again without a doubt!

How could any place be more relaxing than one where you can look out the picture window in your room and see hummingbirds flying, fliting and feeding. The terrace and large garden are beautiful and can be viewed from all rooms. The rooms are basic but extremely comfortable. A space heater keeps you cozy in the evening and you can even have a foot warmer for your bed. The lobby, with it's large overstuffed chairs and couches, has a huge fireplace kept well stoked from late afternoon until late evening. The restaurant sits between that large fireplace and the terrace. Meals are served all day. Breakfast is included with your room and the menu for the balance of the day is extensive and included many vegetarian items. I stayed at the hotel for four days and the food was so good that I did not venture out to another restaurant. Also, check out the exquisite weaving and other art found throughout the hotel. Maggie, the owner, and her assistant side-kick, Susy, were wonderful, involved hostesses. The staff, as a whole, was friendly, helpful, gracious and fun. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
