We stayed a couple of nights and what comfortable nights they were! Lovely spacious clean room, great shower and fabulous breakfast. We even ate there in the evening as they had such good veggie food. Good location and a wonderful doggie that we enjoyed throwing the ball with and lots of cuddles! Prices for food and drink a bit steep... More

Although this place was certainly a sight for sore eyes after 9 hrs on the motorcycle, it is a great place to stay in any event. The staff was extremely welcoming and had secured our reservation despite very short notice and our being in communicado as we were motorcycling off road at times. Our room was spacious and clean.

It was fun each morning to look out at the beautiful vista. It was spectacular! The room was comfortable; great bed, heater if needed, wonderful showers and the warmest blankets I have ever slept under. Cleanliness to the upmost. Our friend Ash was in the room beside us and he left the day before us. I was totally amazed, two... More

The breakfast that came with the room was a satisfying start to every day, and the menu was interesting and delicious, with reasonable prices and vegetarian options. The staff was always cheerful and accommodating... More

I spend a week at La Posada del Quinde and didn't want to leave. The staff is wonderful, always smiling and Maggie, the owner, makes you feel right at home as soon as you arrive. Our room was comfortable and had plenty of storage space and we loved the view of the gardens and distant mountains. With the biggest market... More

Maggie and her staff at La Posada del Quinde provided us with a wonderful five night stay. It is such a relaxing and comforting atmosphere.

My husband and I had different views of this Posada. The difference came down largely to the noise from the Pan American highway that made sleep almost impossible for him on the first night. The location of the Posada is great for seeing the markets in Otavalo (a five block walk to the handicrafts market), but it is also near... More

My three-night stay at La Posada del Quinde was pretty much perfect. Centrally located within walking distance from everything in the town, it’s a beautiful, peaceful place to stay in Otavalo. The room was very comfortable with gorgeous local décor, great bed & sheets, and a space heater for chilly nights. Bathroom was also great, with a good shower &... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. Although the rooms are simply furnished, the ambiance of the common areas and garden courtyard is remarkable. We enjoyed the local weavings on the walls, the Friday musicians, the friendly and very helpful staff and the enthusiasm of the other guests.
