  • Der Loft von Luis war die perfekte Unterkunft während des 2-wöchigen Sprachkurses. Luis ist ein aufmerksamer Gastgeber. Er fragte immer wieder nach ob alles okay ist. Alles was wir benötigten war vorhanden. Besonders schätzten wir die Waschmaschine und die grosse Terasse mit der tollen Aussicht. Das Bett ist komfortabel und die Küche mit dem Nötigsten ausgestattet. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und wurde zwischendurch auch geputzt. Die Umgebung ist auch nachts sicher. Tagsüber hört man viel Strassenlärm, liegt die Wohnung doch mitten im Zentrum der kleinen Stadt, nachts aber ist es ruhig. Eine Bäckerei mit feinen Brötchen ist gerade ums Eck. Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei Luis anfragen und gerne wieder kommen.

  • entsprach unseren Erwartungen und wir koennen es gut weiter empfehlen.Besonders die Terrasse war perfekt, um die Vulkane zu beobachten

  • Beautiful and comfortable apartment, good location (near Mercado and the center of Otavalo), friendly and helpful host. Highly recommended!

    Oleg2016-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Luis' flat has an incredible view over Otavalo. It's located right near the heart of town and the town market. I'd recommend this to anyone visiting Otavalo!

  • The host Luis was very responsive and met me promptly to deliver the keys. The apartment is very comfortable and spacious and has everything you might need. I only stayed one night but it seems like a good place to stay for a longer period. Close to the Plaza de Ponchos and the bus terminal. Decent bakery two doors down - I got pastries for breakfast and enjoyed them with fresh brewed coffee made in the kitchen.

    Ingrid2016-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and very beautiful apartment. We had everything that we need and spent a very nice week in otavalo. The flat is well located and peaceful. I recommend it for a stay in this beautiful city.

    A beautiful studio located in the center of Otavalo and a few steps from plaza de ponchos (artisan market). All kind of businesses: restaurants, laundries, pharmacies are close to you. It is available for two persons.
    This studio is very quiet, charming and comfortable; in spite of being in the city center, there is not noise. It has capacity for two persons with possibility for a third one.
    The studio is well located in the main street of Otavalo at 50mts of Mercado de los Ponchos. The studio is very quiet because it is located in the backside of the main house. Near the studio you will find a coffee restaurant where you can enjoy breakfasts and excellent food.
  • This place was just as described. It's one block from the Plaza de Ponchos and on Saturday the stalls come nearly to your door. Most everything else you would need is nearby as well. It is also very secure. We didn't see a lot of our hosts, due to a sick child, but when we did need something, they were very nice and helped out immediately. You will not find anything better located or safer, especially at this price.

  • Cyrille a été très serviable et toujours disponible pour nos demandes. De plus, il a eu la gentillesse de venir nous chercher à l'aéroport pour un prix très intéressant! je recommande son appart qui est très vaste, fonctionnel, tranquille et à deux pas de tout dans la ville d'Otavalo.

  • Great location! In the middle and convenient to everything. I onlyl stayed 2 nights, the Saturday Market, starts almost right out in front of this location. Very secure, safe and clean. Bathroom seemed to be newly remodeled. the shower-head was the electric type, but looked brand new, so I gave is a (Website hidden by Airbnb) problems. Though it lacks refrigeration, it was great to have access to the kitchenette. A tad noisy from the back, but only if you're a light sleeper, I was not bothered by it at all. Alexandra was able to arrange for her father to meet me at the Quito airport for transportation, as opposed to using a public taxi, which worked out well. Great location, great price, I would definitely stay here again.

  • We had a really good stay in Alexandras studio. She picked us up on the day of arrival and has been very helpfull and carring. Would definetly recommend this place for others!

    Nanna2014-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Alexandra and her husband were extremely kind, and helpful. The apartment was fantastic, with everything we needed and more. Alexandra left maps, brochures and snacks in the apartment, which was a very nice touch. The place was quiet and in an excellent location. We would definitely stay there again.

    Christopher2014-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Communication was quick and easy. Our hosts were very understanding when we needed to change our travel plans when my friend became ill - thank you. The location is right in the centre of Otavalo. The apartment was really clean and the bed comfortable.

    Eva2017-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Alexandra was really great to deal with, responded quickly and with good directions. No problems finding the place at all. The studio is really comfortable, clean and quiet. Bring all your favorite tapes/vinyl for the record player next to the bed, too ;) Really convenient and close to the market where we ate most of our meals. We cooked a couple times in the kitchen as well and were pleased to find pretty much everything you would need to cook simple, basic meal, and clean up afterwards. Pretty much everything you could reasonably ask for is there. True story.

    There are 3 cabanas on the property,good for small or large groups. Each include hot water, wifi, work table, chimney. Private gated access It's a 10-15 min walk from center of Otavalo or $1.50 taxi. I can assist with transfers from Quito airport.
    While the 3 cabanas are on the same property, each provide privacy. You will enjoy tranquil gardens and amazing views of Otavalo and Cotacachi volcano. You can pick your own citrus fruit and avocados. Firewood negociable.
    My property is very quiet and peaceful it is close to town, but far from the noise. I am on the road to beatiful Mojanda Lake and Fuya Fuya. We are walking distance to famous animal market (Saturday) and Plaza de Ponchos market, held days a week
  • It was a perfect stay in Otavalo !! Myrian was so nice like a mum with us

    Camille2015-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Miryan was a brilliant host - extremely friendly and helpful. The house was simple yet comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The garden was very pretty and had a nice area to sit and relax, while watching the humming birds. Our only concern was that it wasn't as quiet as we had hoped, being close to a road and there were dogs barking at night. However, we really enjoyed our stay and would love to go back if we are ever in the area again. Thank you Miryan!

    Sarah2016-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and excellent host! The cabaña was simple, but comfortable and clean.

    Gregory2015-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, value and host! Very happy to have stayed here & enjoyed the properties many hummingbirds and natural setting. Thanks Miryan for the wonderful stay!

    Red2015-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • La cabanita de Myriam est tout à fait exceptionnelle, un peu en retrait d'Otavalo, elle permet d'être tranquille. Pour se rendre au centre ville, il suffit de payer 1 à 1,50$ le taxi ou marcher 15 à 20 minutes. Le jardin de Myriam est d'ailleurs tout à fait magnifique ! De plus, elle est toujours là pour répondre à nos questions ou bien nous aider. Elle a un réel soucis du bien être des gens qu'elle accueille. Je retournerais sans hésiter chez Myriam. Sa cabanita est simple, mais avait tout ce dont on avait besoin (eau chaude, foyer, équipement de cuisine, plusieurs couvertures), je n'aurais pas souhaité mieux. Merci infiniment à Myriam nous avons eu un séjour fantastique. Muchas gracias Myriam ❤

    Alexandra2016-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Miryan is an outstanding host. Bright and generous. Her place is a little on the outskirt of the city but the bus is right there and walking is just about 10 minutes. It makes it quiet at night. The setting is comfortable and each cabañas are private. As for the shower, the water is really hot and plenty, not lukewarm and scarce. Something really appreciated in South America. Thank you Miryan

    Louise2015-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Hubby and I really enjoyed our stay at Miryan's place. Not only it is nice, cosy, quiet and safe but the location is great too being only 15 min walk from the center (very safe to walk or U$1.25 taxi ride). We originally booked the little cabana (which is really cute!) but decided to upgrade to the middle sized one (which has a kitchen) for only $3 more per night. Miryan has a nice little set up with a beautiful garden which gives privacy to all the cabanas. We enjoyed having breakfast outside every morning with the hummingbirds flying above our head, not to mention the hammock or the cosy bed ;) She also has 2 beautiful dogs, a llama called Muna and a couple of chickens hanging around. I guess the only little thing is that if you are, like us, a light sleeper, bring ear plugs as you can hear a few dogs barking at night (we always travel with ear plugs so wasn't a biggie for us). Now I cannot leave a review here without talking about the incredible host. Myrian represents everything we love about Airbnb! From the very beginning she made us feel at home and went behind her way to make sure we had everything we needed. She treated us like family and was always happy to help or give us informations. The day we walked around the Laguna Cuicocha, Miryan brought us some beer as we were chilling after the hike! Every morning she brought us coffee and even made pop corn for us and a delicious quinoa soup (ask her for the receipe!). She is an incredible woman, funny, friendly, smart and generous. You will fall in love with the place and with the person ;) I wish we could have stayed longer (well we did extend our original stay by 3 nights!) and would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

    Laetitia & James2016-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Miryan was wonderful and her property is gorgeous. I would recommend this property to everyone visiting Otavalo. We loved to relax on her property; making a fire, enjoying the views of Mona (the llama) the garden and volcanos, and seeing all the pretty hummingbirds. We miss her place already!

    Nice furnished apartment in a new house (built 2016) in the beautiful town of Otavalo. It is a very bright apartment in the third floor. Cozy living room, large dining table, fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom, small balcony, washing machine, terrace. The price is incl. water, electricity and Internet. Our house is in a quiet and safe area. It is only a 10 minutes' walk from the Plaza de Ponchos, where is the famous Indigenous market. Close by are supermarkets, restaurants, shops, ATM.
    The apartment is very new. It has large windows and is very bright and warm.
    From the apartments you have a beautiful view to the volcanos Cotacachi (4935 m), Imbabura (4621 m) and Fuya Fuya (4286 m).
  • It was a really nice and modern apartment. Monica is friendly and helpful and it is nice her daughter and son in law speak English. We enjoyed our stay in Otavalo and they gave us some nice tips about activities and seeings! It is an easy walk from the apartment to the city centre.

    Suzan2016-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious, almost brand new apartment at a ten minutes walk from the center (or a 1.25$cap drive). The apartment contains everything you need like a fridge, comfy couch&TV with Netflix option, petite balcony and big shower - which according to Ecuadorian standards sometimes leaves you with cold water. A perfect apartment to crash for a couple of days and get away from the ten dollar dorms we had before!

    Vincent2016-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent apartment. Well positioned with a short walk to town. It is new and roomy. The washing machine and drying area an added bonus. Monica and her family are there to help in any way if you want. Value for money this place was exceptional. Thank you Monica, Tanya and family

    Gillian2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had 3 nights at Monica's. We arrived at night in the rain and the family drove us into town so that we could get something to eat which was lovely of them. We had a good very reasonably priced breakfast in the restaurant that the family own underneath the apartments. Whilst the apartment isn't in the most scenic part of town it only takes 10 minutes to walk to the centre or $1.5 in a taxi. The apartment is very well kitted out and comfortable.

    Julie2017-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with very friendly and helpful hosts. Very spacious and clean, and the location is ideal - just a few blocks away from the center of Otavalo, but removed enough to be quiet. Definitely recommend!

    Mairin2016-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • New and spotlessly clean, Monica's apartments are a great find. Walk to town in 10 minutes. We stayed an extra day just to enjoy the comfort! Comfortable bed, hot water, lovely views from patio upstairs and hosts were very friendly and efficient. Couldn't be happier with our stay :)

    Lauren2018-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • We certainly hope to stay with Monica again. The apartment is modern, includes everything you need for a short holiday and was very clean. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed being able to walk to the markets in Otavalo. Monica and Tanya were very helpful with any questions we had and helped us out when we needed a taxi early Sunday morning. Highly recommend it!

    Michael2017-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Monica, nous a bien aidé, en nous conseillant l'application (Website hidden by Airbnb) pour rejoindre l'appartement depuis Quito. L'accueil fut sympa. L’appartement est super neuf et bien équipé. Nous avions l'impression d'être dans un appartement témoin

  • Casa antigua pero acogedora, super amplia, la persona que te recibe da muy buenas explicaciones es muy atento, recomendación: podrían tener utensilios(Ollas, sartenes) más nuevos, por lo demas todo bien

    Christian2018-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a charming house for a short, budget, stay in Otavalo. As I wrote to the owners, the house is not, as currently described, an "entire house," for guests to enjoy on their own, but rather has several bedrooms that may be rented out to other guests. This was my main surprise, as we was expecting to have the home to ourselves. The hosts are very friendly and while our stay was short, they seem to be available for help or suggestions navigating the area. The house lacks in creature comforts such as cotton curtains and a bath mat in the bathroom, but its living room, kitchen, and dining room are spacious and it is a good value.

    Madeleine2018-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Una casa con gran capacidad para huéspedes, en un barrio tranquilo, muy económica.

    Jorge2018-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Zulay´s BnB was beyond amazing! Much of what impressed us about Zulay's BnB was how nicely appointed it was, how well situated it was to downtown - within easy walking distance, and how quiet it was overall. Distant from high traffic areas in a safe, residential neighbourhood, it was easy to get a good night's sleep... something we've had challenges with during our time in Ecuador. The house is decorated in traditional Ecuadorian decor with locally purchased blankets and art. The living spaces are large and comfortable. A small table and chairs were even provided for us outside under a roof so that I could work on my computer, overlooking the flower and fish garden, which abounded with birds! Some local potatoes, onions and garlic were left for us in the kitchen for us to prepare meals with! We ran out of time to take Zulay up on her offer to go to her house to cook a traditional meal together... we do intend on returning and hope to take her up on that offer one day! We especially appreciated that Zulay is indigenous to Otavalo and yet intimately understands the needs of tourists wanting to know the culture. Zulay operates a very special travel agency which focuses on indigenous traditions and commerce that benefits local people. This will not be your standard BnB stay. if you take her up on her offers to show you around! You can expect to know the culture in a way that would not be possible without Zulay's unique influence. We were taken to the local "Living Museum", which is not to be missed! There we were given a tour by a local guide which detailed the history of the local Indigenous people and their journey over the last centuries. This included some first-hand experiential information from the guide and Zulay herself! Later Zulay gifted us with a copy of a movie that was made of the life of her family, which was an honour to watch and gave us a much deeper understanding of the culture of the Otavalo Indigenous people. Another highlight was being taken to a local wedding with over 500 guests. Zulay dressed me up in some of her traditional Indigenous clothing! I felt so honoured to be gifted with this experience and it served as a bridge to connect with the local people at the wedding! Truly unforgettable! If we could give 6 out of 5 stars, we would. This was one of the greatest highlights of our 4 months in Ecuador.

    James2018-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Zulay is an excellent place to stay while visiting Otavalo. Paola's place is quite spacious and has a unique decor. We were a group of four who stayed there but the house can both easily and comfortably accommodate more guests. Zulay visited us at night and started a fire in the fireplace which was a very kind gesture.

    Randi2018-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • La Casa Zulay est bien placée. Une agence de tourisme accolée a la maison permet d´obtenir des informations rapidement sur les environs. Je n´ai malheureusement pas rencontré Paola mais elle a été bienveillante a mon arrivée et mon départ (par téléphone). Elle a aussi été arrangeante pour mon heure de départ.

    Stephanie2018-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Paola’s place is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood from Otavalo, we were alone in the house so it was great to have a whole house available even for our short stay. They let us stay after check out and helped us arrange transportation for the airport. Overall, a great experience. Gracias por todo!

    Rebeca2018-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Me gustó mucho mi estadía en casa Zulay, muy cómodo y limpio, puede trabajar con buena conexión a internet y después Zulay me hizo un gran tour por la zona!! Volvería sin pensarlo!!

  • This was one of our favourite Airbnb experiences . The stay on the farm is truly special. The cottage is on the top of a hill with spectacular views of the valley. Lionel and Katty were wonderful hosts . They drove us around to various sites in the area and left us delicious fruits and bread. Our daughter loved all the animals , in particular Sammy the llama left his mark. Highly recommended !

    Cliona2016-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Excelente ubicación. La cabaña es por demás comida y acogedora. Katty y Lionel son muy amables. Aprovechen las cenas. Deliciosas!

    Juan Francisco2014-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • La experiencia ha sido genial, mi novia y yo disfrutamos muchísimo del campo. La cabaña es muy acogedora y relativamente cerca de los lugares más representativos de Imbabura. Todo salió perfecto

    Andrés2017-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Katty and Leonel were perfect hosts. Our 9 night stay was everything we had hoped. We are traveling around the world for a year with our two children, age 6 and 9 and were looking forward to a longer stay to relax a bit. We enjoyed the rural setting, giving us a glimpse into the lives of the people living outside of Otavalo. It is also easily connected by bus to the surrounding larger towns giving us a variety of areas to explore. Our hosts were beyond helpful. The pick up from the airport was wonderful, allowing us to skip staying in Quito again after coming in from the Galapagos Islands. We easily explored the areas we wanted to by a combination of hiring Katty or Leonel as our “taxi” or by going by public buses which were easy enough with the explanation from our hosts. We even had the opportunity to join our host family at a special “Inti Raymi” festival event in a rural area of Cotactchi. What a treat! I particularly enjoyed being able to ask questions that I had about the local dress and customs. How wonderful to have two knowledgeable locals. Both Katty and Leonel speak Spanish, English and French! And their adorable daughter, is so smart and a pleasure to be around. The cabana is perfect for a couple, a family or a group of friends traveling together. We loved having the equipped kitchen to prepare our own foods that we purchased at the local markets, especially breakfast and dinner as there aren’t any dining options nearby. Katty and Leonel stocked the kitchen with a few essentials to get us started the first morning. It was nice to have the tv to watch the world cup and there is a nice selection of dvd’s too. The fireplace was great for the cool nights and just to give a nice feeling to the cabin. The home of the hosts is about a 1 minute walk up the hill so you really feel like you have your own home in the rural Andes! There is internet at their home but not in the Cabana yet. They are working on getting it set up. We were welcomed to use the WiFi connection in their home when we wanted. The property is surrounded by beautiful views that are always changing. When the clouds part the views of both Itabura and Cotachachi mountains are breathtaking. Leonel has planted beautiful organic quinoa in the fields and the kids even got to help harvest it. Probably the best part for the children was all the animals, particularly, “Rocky the great” their dog, the chickens and the bunnies. We also hired Katty, a Spanish teacher, to teach the children Spanish for 2 hours every morning. The kids enjoyed it and it was a great kickstart for their Spanish as we will be in South/Central America for 3 months. We hope one day to return and stay again.

    Kelly2014-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • As hosts, Katty and her husband were very helpful and kind. It is a beautiful setting with nice scenery. It is a peaceful place to stay in a rural area. Katty and her husband are very willing to help with figuring out transport.

    Tiffany2017-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is by far the best Airbnb place we've ever stayed. It was extremely beautiful, well located and had great views of the mountains around. Leo and Katty were very nice hosts. The cabin was perfect. When I come back I'm definitely staying here!

    Enrique2016-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place in nature with farm animals, a welcome change from the loud and smog-filled Quito. Hosts were very welcoming, accommodating and quick to respond. Thank you!

    Morten2017-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Katty & Lio were exceptional hosts. Our time in Otavalo was such an incredible time. My wife and I were on our honeymoon during our visit, and Lio & Katty placed roses and candles around the house to welcome us. In addition, the well-stocked kitchen and gifted fruits were definitely an indicator of how the hosts will go above and beyond to make your trip unforgettable. The hosts' guidebook was very helpful and orienting, and the trips/driving options they offered were reasonable. We enjoyed our trip to lake Mojanda & Fuya Fuya as well as Cuicocha. Lio & Katty treated us like family, but were also very professional with their jobs as hosts. They were very helpful in helping us navigate Ecuador, and I highly recommend a stay with them--just know that the pictures don't capture how beautiful their farm and cabin is! The one major downside to our stay--we wish we had more time here!

  • Alberto's house is beautiful. The rooms are huge and everything has a nice rustic feeling. The bathroom has a good hot water shower which is not that usual in South America. The common area is very cozy, it even has a fire place! There are only two rooms available so you only have to share the common area with another room. In our case we were the only ones so we had the whole place for ourselves. It has a nice kitchen area with a shared fridge. He provides basics like coffee, sugar and salt. The location is great, close to the bus station and to the Local Market. Alberto is very responsive and always willing to help. We enjoyed our stay there very much.

    Sjoert2018-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious apartment behind shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the fireplace, the terrace on the roof and the kitchen even if it had no fridge. When we arrived Alberto took care that the water in the shower becomes hot. We had a pleasant stay at his apartment!

  • Alex and his beautiful, wonderful family greeted us with open arms. What an absolute delight to stay at their home, eat their delicious nutritious meals, and experience part of their unique culture. We loved visiting the nearby falls and the infamous market!! We will absolutely return our next time in Otavalo!!!

    Gretchen2016-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Overall we had a good experience with Maria's place. The family is extremely nice and hospitable! The location is on the outskirts of town, and right across the street from the park with the waterfall (a very nice place to walk around) which is very convenient. The room was big and the price is very reasonable. The only two things that could be improved are the sheets/pillows could use replacing and the bathroom could be cleaner. We would still recommend this as a budget option!

    Nav2017-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly family, nice accommodations and location.

    Abraham2018-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful family! They were all very friendly and hospitable. They gave us great tips and guidance for getting around and sightseeing. They provide great meals at a great rate and they also arranged for us to eat cuy that one of their neighbors prepared. They also made time to hang out with us and talk to us about their culture and their lifestyle. The house is very close to the bus stop and it costs $.30 to get into town and takes 15 minutes. Just a walk away from the Peguche waterfall. They all spoke Spanish and Cristina communicated relatively well in English. The whole family was so nice that we extended our stay. We would highly recommend staying with this lovely family. Maravillosa familia! Son todos muy amigables y hospitalarios. Nos dieron muy buenos consejos y direcciones en cuanto a la transportación y el turismo. También proveen muy buena comida a buen precio y hasta arreglaron para que sus vecinos que crian cuyes nos preparasen uno para comer. Además dedicaron un poco de tiempo para hablarnos de su cultura y su estilo de vida. La casa está muy cerca de la estación de bus que va al centro de Otavalo’ cuesta $.30 y demora unos 15 minutos. La entrada para las cascadas de Peguche está en el otro lado de la calle. Toda la familia habla espanol y Cristian habla ingles muy bien. Fueron todos tan agradable que decidimos extender nuestra estadía. Recomendamos esta familia de todo corazón.

    Linh2017-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's house is very close to the Pegucha waterfalls and the surrounding park, which was quiet and very pleasant to explore. The family is very hospitable and the roof terras is just amazing!

    Benjamin2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Un lugar precioso con una familia increible ! Cerca del centro y de la Cascada Peguche !

  • Notre séjour de deux jours fut parfait .... Diego et sa famille nous ont proposés d'aller manger ensemble le 1er soir , avec nos rudiments d'espagnol et leur notions d'anglais nous avons pu échanger et passer une super soirée . Le lendemain nous avons diner et petit déjeuner en leur compagnie . Ils sont attentionnés et nous avons passé un excellent moment , bref à recommander !

  • Alexander, su madre María y todo el resto de su familia fueron excelentes anfitriones. La casa está ubicada a 20minutos caminando de Otavalo por lo que alrededor es puro campo verde y animales, super lindo. Tienen varias mascotas muy simpáticas y cariñosas. El cuarto era grande y cómodo, ducha de agua caliente y una cocina grande con todo lo necesario para cocinar. Un gusto habernos quedado en la casa de Alexander! Saludos!

    Departamento de estadía independiente, cuenta con servicios básicos, luz, agua, baño con ducha. El barrio es muy tranquilo, queda muy cerca el terminal terrestre, La plaza de los Ponchos y centro de la ciudad.
    El huésped es como parte de la familia.
    La ciudad, es un valle muy turístico del Ecuador, famoso por su arte,culturas, paisajes,lago, lagunas, montañas de los andes, naturaleza pura y diversidad de tradiciones. La verdad que si se viene a Ecuador, es fundamental visitar la Provincia y la ciudad de Otavalo, enriquece el viaje más de lo pensado.
  • This is a great family-oriented place to stay if you are going to Otavalo and visiting the region. The hosts are wonderful, very helpful, and the breakfast they prepare is excellent. We went as a group of friends and would definitely return.

    Alexis2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely inclusive family to stay with who go out of their way to look after you from feeding you to taking you out and about. Fernando is an amazing musician and plays a range of local musical instruments. Veronica is a great cook and Esteban is their son who is studying at Uni. Not much English is spoken which is great for expanding your Spanish. The bedroom is large with 3 double beds. There is also a lounge room. You have your own toilet and they are in the process of installing a new shower which will be lovely when finished. All in all, a very positive experience.

    Penny2016-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Esteban and Veronica were very welcoming hosts. They helped us find great horses to take a tour to the waterfalls and lagoons. We were greeted with a snack fresh bananas and fresh tomato juice. Veronica took us on a tour of two lagoons and helped us find great leather products in nearby town. Esteban is a musician and if you go on the weekends then you will be able to see his andean band perform. The apartment is great as it has a seperate living room and the shower has hot water. The apartment is close to nearby market and city center is only a few blocks away. Esteban and Veronica are very nice hosts and my wife and I enjoyed our stay with them.

    Michael2016-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fernando and Veronica are wonderful hosts! Don't hesitate to stay with them. Their house is only about 3 blocks from the bus station. It is only 5 or 6 blocks from the Plaza of Ponchos too. Our rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable. We enjoyed having tea and breakfast with them over the three days we were there. One night that was special was when we went to the lovely restaurant where Fernando plays pan flutes and other traditional instruments of the Andes. They were also helpful in suggestions for transportation and things to do while in the Otavalo area. They called cabs and communicated with the driver for us as we spoke no Spanish. Fernando and Veronica made our trip to Otavalo unforgettable!

    Patricia2018-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute spot. Lots of local goods as blankets and decorations. Was awoken to a nice breakfast where we heard the host play instruments he built himself! Very cool.

    Aryeh2018-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Los Hinojosa me trataron como miembro de la familia, me enseñaron la naturaleza de la zona y Fernando (que es músico muy talentoso) me enseño tocar el chorango.

    Zach2018-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sejour bien agreable chez Fernando et Veronica, des hôtes exceptionnels. Ils nous ont grandement facilité notre sejour, accueilli comme leur propre famille et aidé lorsque nous en avions besoin. Chambre spacieuse et confortable. Une excellente adresse que nous recommandons !!

    Sunny, cozy, 3-bedroom cottage on a quiet street beside a stream, big lawn, avocado, lemon, fig and peach trees, song birds. Five minute walk to the poncho market or central park. Full kitchen - cook your own meals if you like or walk 3 blocks or so for diverse restaurants. Unobstructed view of 16000 foot Imbabura volcano. Fiber optic Internet: 5MB up and 5MB down, suitable for videocalls and Netflix (to be honest, during times of high traffic it can be less than that).
    Friendly, helpful neighbors, play area for children, fresh air and tranquility so close to the center of Otavalo help make this an ideal place for nature-lovers, newlyweds, good friends, families and retired persons who want to spend a short or long time in Otavalo. Ideal for extended visits of a month or more. Large driveway for parking your vehicle. Lots of firewood and area suitable for campfires, weiner roasts and barbecues. To be honest, it is not always totally quiet. The neighbors have a sweet dog that barks occasionally, and a half a dozen pigeons sometimes hold meetings on the roof. However, we have never had problems with traffic noise, noisy neighbors or loud music.
    The house is on a quiet street in a residential neighborhood. There is a huge new fruit, vegetable and food market about a block and a half away. The neighbors are very friendly. There is a small stream and green valley at the back of the property between the neighborhood and the center of town, and the cottage is about 20 meters from the stream. This and the fruit trees ensure an abundance of birds.
  • This was my second stay in Ralph's house, and I will return without hesitation. It is comfortable, secure, convenient, and reasonable.

    Francis2018-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay here, especially how close it was to everything without having any street noise. It was a bit chilly, but there were loads of blankets to keep warm at night. The king sized bed was very comfortable. The place is a little rough around the edges - the cat running across the metal roof was very noisy. It was nice to have a safe place to park our car.

    Valerie2018-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • The house is centrally located but very, very quiet. Internet is excellent. And the neighbor that takes care of things when Ralph is away is fabulous. Very friendly, kind, and helpful.

    Michelle2018-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Le logement de Ralph est parfait pour visiter la belle ville d'Otavalo. Tout est parfait, très bien équipé et très propre. De plus il est très bien situé, à 5 mn à pied du centre. Nous avons été merveilleusement accueillis par Janet et par Eugenia. Je recommande vivement.

    Marie2018-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in the cottage was a great moment. Ralph and his wife our very kind and generous people caring about their guests. The cottage is in the house's garden. The garden is a nice place to relax with view on the city bridge and volcano. It is a space shared with Ralph and his neighbors and of course Lukas, the old adorable dog (very friendly and patient with kids). The neighbors and the host were very helpful giving information and helping to visit at very reasonable cost, and they are also very gentle people. The cottage it self is very spacious with everything you need to cook. At daytime everything is perfect with it, unfortunately at night it can be a bit cold as outside since the windows and doors aren't well seald. But there are good blankets to keep you warm in bed. Also you here noises at night when birds (or whatever else it is) start walking or jumping on the roof. But it only disturbs the uneasy sleepers. The shower is quite difficult to control, as it is cold water being directly heaten by the resistance component installed. But you get used to it. My overall impression is that this is a perfect place really not far from mercados and city center to stay for a good quality/price. We stayed for 3 nights my wife 2y old daughter and will keep good memories of this stay. Thanks to Ralph his wife and neighbors.

    Adrien2017-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice alternative to staying in a hotel, and much more affordable. Ralph called me from the US just after I moved in, to see if everything was OK. Eugenia, who lives on the property with her family (separate house), was available for anything I needed. The house is behind a gate that is always locked, and I felt very safe there. All the basics are provided, with an especially nice bed.

    Francis2017-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We feel lucky to have stayed at Ralph's AirBnB. The apartment is very spacious with lots of storage space and all the items you will need for a short or long stay. Loads of pillows and blankets to snuggle up with and the master bed was ridiculously comfortable. Fantastic sleep! The garden is a nice gift to enjoy amid the bustling town and near the unbelievable mercado. We we're delighted by the colorful birds, the delicious fruits growing in the garden and the amazing, sweet aroma that was wafting off one of the fruit trees. And, the very special treat that is Lucas--the friendliest dog in the world--to greet you HOME after a long day of exploring. The Internet was stellar--no outages whatsoever (which made us feel spoiled) and the shower was totally fine. It is and electric shower that works well. Electric showers, often found in South America, just require patience. After nearly 4 months traveling South America, we have found that showers here are intended to clean--not meant for luxurious, long, hot soaks. The bathroom has cabinet space to keep your stuff nearby. Filtered water. This alone is reason enough to stay here. We are hyper conscious of the pollution bottled water creates and we got to have 10 days of delicious, filtered water and no bottles to add to the landfill. Another bonus of staying here was Eugenia, the neighbor who helps get visitors settled. She is a bright, kind, cheerful light and was patient with our lacking Spanish skills. Ralph's attentiveness to concerns and his guests comfort was evident. He is a stellar communicator and he genuinely cares for his guests to have a happy stay at the apartment. The apartment is just outside of the hubbub of El Centro which was a pleasant break and allowed us long, restful nights of sleep. We highly recommend this apartment for your visit to Otavalo! We will miss them all (and the apartment).

    John + Lola2017-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ralph and Janet are the best hosts, I am so happy to have come to meet them both in person, and spent some time hanging out with them. They have being truly flexible with us and are just the nicest people one could expect. I have stayed at Ralph´s for three months now. I can say that once the rainy months were finish the true magic of the garden unfolded. It is definitely my favourite part of the house, one just does not find gardens like this anymore. I like to sit outside by the river and read a book until the sunset. I find the garden and the river very peaceful, I will miss it when we have to move out. I will also miss Lucas, he is an awesome dog, and we´ve become good friends. The house has all you need to live in it comfortably, it is steps away from the food market, witch we go to every other afternoon just to stroll around, or have some freshly squeezed juice. My partner enjoys walking down to the Poncho´s market and having a coffee over there. The only thing I won´t miss is the neighbour´s rooster, must of the time he is ok, but sometimes he´s very noisy, still it is a small price for such paradise location.

  • Nadia y su marido Alexandro fueron muy amables. Nos han apayodo bastante para conocer los buenos planes de la ciudad y alrededores, aunque tuvieron mucho trabajo pendiente y pocas disponibilidades. El cuarto es sencillo, calmo y limpio, con baño privado que si tiene agua caliente. Nadia and her husband were very friendly. They quite helped us to discover good opportunities in the city and surroundings, although they were really occupied with late work and a few available time. The room is simple, calm and clean, with private bathroom that has hot water.

    Jean-Yves2018-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place! In a more residential area but just a short walk to the centre of town and the famous market, and not too far from other attractions such as the Peguche waterfall and Condor Park. Everything I needed was provided, the bed was very comfortable and I had full access to the kitchen including cooking equipment and coffee maker which was perfect! Even when I lost the keys and was locked out, they went above and beyond to bring me another set to ensure I could get inside and was safe. Would not change anything!

    George2018-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nadia es muy atenta y cordial. Nos ayudo mucho en lo que más pudo. Aunque andaba corriendo por el trabajo intentó ser de mucha ayuda, y así fue. El apartamento es muy bonito, grande y limpio. La habitación muy confortable, grande, bonita y con lo necesario. ¡Muchas gracias! Y bienvenida a Colombia para cuando quieras volver por acá. Muchos saludos.

    Balcon del lago son unas cabañas rusticas con acabados de la zona, con un bello mirar al lago San Pablo y a los volcanes Imbabura y Cotacachi que se los puede apreciar desde las cabañas. tienen baño privado con agua caliente, chimenea, son 4 cabañas al momento El precio es por cada cabaña, con chimenea y ducha de agua caliente
    Somos una familia emprendedora que hace poco tiempo llevamos adelante este proyecto, que con esfuerzo y amor construimos. Nos caracterizamos por brindar un ambiente calido y familiar.
    Estamos ubicados en una comunidad nativa, cachimuel del sector donde podran observar las costumbres propias de los Otavaleños como su vestuario, su idioma (Quechua) y su cultura. Nosotros somos la unica familia mestiza en dicha comunidad.
  • We had a wonderful stay at Balcon del Lago. Jessica cooked a great dinner and breakfast and we felt very welcome in her home. The view of the lake and mountains is simply amazing from the room. We got a real taste of life in the community as we watched the sheep herders, kids playing soccer, and a woman carrying firewood. I would recommend one of the two brick cabins.

    Cheryl2014-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Jessica made us feel very welcome, as did her family. She was helpful and called taxis as needed and they are needed because this place is well up a hillside from the main road. Our cabana was nonetheless a shock because of its roughness, both inside and out. The area of the cabins has a beautiful view over the Lake and of the Imbaburra Volcano, but the area around one is again rough, not for the faint of heart.

    Bruce2015-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Balcon del Lago is amazing! The cottages are really, really cute and the views from the cottage are incredible with a view of the mountain towns, the beautiful lake and Vulcan Imbabura. The place was great and is a nice 5 minute walk to the road where you can catch a bus quickly for 25 cents in to Otavalo, which is a 5-10 bus ride away. Jessica and her family were incredibly nice to us and she helped us out with everything. They made us feel like we were family and we even shared birthday cake and sang happy birthday with the family to her son. This place is really unique and highly recommended. Thank You Jessica! Gracias por todo de Toronto, Canada. Ojala nos vemos otra vez dentro de poco.

    Jacqueline2014-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Jessica and family was very enjoyable. We really enjoyed how authentic and rustic the place is. The view is amazing, and the fact that food was cooked by the hosts (very affordable too!) was brilliant. We really felt like a part of the family, and the tour we had on our first full day which they organised was really valuable. They were very willing to call a taxi (something which is definitely needed where they are - it's a short taxi journey, but to walk to Otavalo centre would take a while) when we asked, and generally did everything they could to be helpful.

    Jonathon2016-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • La experiencia en El Balcón del Lago fue lo mejor de mi viaje a Ecuador. La familia Salazar, artífice de ese hermoso hotel y proyecto de turismo urbano comunitario merecen toda mi admiración. Vivir ese tipo de hospedaje es lo mejor que le puede pasar a un turista porque se vive el lugar que se visita de manera única. La vista es maravillosa. Todo estuvo muy bien. Y sólo tengo palabras de agradecimiento y amor por esa familia. Muchas gracias.

  • Can't recommend this place enough. The view is to die for, the cabañas are nice, cozy and rustic, there's the cutest puppy and kitten on premises, plus Jessica provides cheap and tasty dinners. Jessica was very accommodating of my vegetarianism, friendly and helpful, even walking and waiting with me at the bus stop. She was quick to help some other guests who'd lost their luggage, helping them communicate with people at the airport. She was also very patient with my practicing Spanish! I highly recommend Balcon de Lago, will be returning when I am next in Ecuador.

  • Wow - I just finished spending two months in the Galapagos and I had a few days before my flight out of Quito. I wasn't read for "civilization" just yet and I had a tent so I thought about camping (there are campgrounds in the Otavalo area). I'm glad a friend reminded me how COLD it is in Otavalo at night! The altitude is 8400 feet (2500 meters)! Instead, I opted for rustic accommodations and chose Balcon del Lago. Amazing view of the mountain and local community (I watched a family putting a roof on their dwelling from my window), hot showers, TV and... a fireplace! Oh, and cute pets - including a bunny!!! As others have noted, it's above the noisy Panamerican highway - but I never travel without my earplugs so sleeping was fine. I got lost a couple times on my way back but I loved trading stories with the other travellers, drinking oregano tea and gazing out the window at the mountain while I adjusted to the altitude. I definitely recommend visiting the nearby bird sanctuary (esp for the flight demos) and picking up some souvenirs at the big market. So glad I chose this place instead of traffic-clogged Quito.

  • Aun no podemos evaluar nuestra experiencia en el lugar , ya que recién estaremos en Balcón del Lago el 21 de marzo y no el 21 de febrero como decía la pagina. Lo que puedo decir es que Jessica esta muy atenta y bien predispuesta para todas mis consultas

  • Wir haben eine Nacht hier verbracht. Die "Hütte" liegt zwar am Ende des Ortes aber trotzdem zentral. Der Busbahnhof ist direkt in Sichtweite, die Hauptstraße ebenso, sowie die netten tierischen Mitbewohner :-/ die Geräuschkulisse ist somit dementsprechend. Diese Hütte ist quadratisch klein, so gefühlte ca 3x3m, kein TV, keine Möglichkeit, mal ein Kaffee zu machen, kein Kühlschrank, kein Kleiderschrank. Wifi nur draußen. Juan ist sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns interessante Informationen zum Ort und der Umgebung gegeben. Für einen kurzen Aufenthalt ok

    Maria2016-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are lovely, inside the family property but separate from the family home. The location is convenient to everything in Otavalo, especially the bus station. Best of all, this is a large, welcoming family who follow many traditional Ecuadorian customs. I loved the opportunity to learn more about life in Otavalo in a private and friendly environment.

  • This was our first airbnb experience and we were satisfied with the room in Juan Alex's house. The room was clean and tidy and similar to how it is pictured. Juan Alex was unfortunately away but we had a tiny bit of interaction with his family who were kind and accommodating when we talked to them in Spanish. There was some confusion about our booking, even though we had confirmed and sent a message asking to expect us on our arrival date. The room was made ready very quickly though and Juan Alex was quick to admit his mistake and make us feel welcome before he left on business. There wasn't obviously a kitchen available for us to use and there was no breakfast laid out. Maybe things would have been explained to us a little bit better if Juan Alex had been around. Overall, this is great value for money and the location is amazing!! A little note : take your own toilet paper!!

    Lucy2014-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • La cabaña es una pura maravillosa, muy bien ubiquada para llegar del terminal terrestre y ir tambien en el centro como plaza de ponchos o mercado de los animales. Tambien es muy facil de acceso el lechero y Juan alex es muy amable y puede dar buenos consejos para que se approveche de la estancia en otavalo y conocer mas sitios a cerca de la ciudad. En resumen, es un super alojamiento que le aconsejo a cada persona a quien le gusta un poco de naturaleza en la ciudad.

    Clara2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Juan Alex's cabañas are wonderful! Right by the bus terminal, walking distance from everything in Otavalo. The cabañas are adorable and very clean. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in in a long time!

    Elizabeth2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is the second time I've gone back to Juan Alex's cabañas. They are so comfortable and quiet, I really enjoy the location, and overall it's just a very nice experience. Thank you Juan Alex!

    Elizabeth2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first experience using Air BnB and it went great! Juan went out of his way to pick us up when we arrived an during our stay he showed us around Otavalo. He was able to tell us a lot about the local culture and was always very helpful. In addition, the place was very nicely decorated and made us feel at home. I would highly recommend staying here!

  • This place is simply amazing. It's a great value for money as you have your own centrally-located, comfortable apartment for literally little money. We absolutely loved it because it was like having our 'home' for a while. The place is big enough with 2 bedrooms, a nice size kitchen and comfortable sitting area. The bed had super soft sheets and warm covers. We had a great sleep there. Wifi was also good, maybe a bit slower in the evening when everybody uses it but we were able to work there without any problems. I totally recommend this place!

    Natalia2018-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Location, location, location. Everything interesting in Otavalo is walking distance. This The apartment is comfortable and homey feeling.

    Daniel2018-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Santiago’s place in Otavalo was really well located and a perfect apartment for couples, friends or families with kids. Santiago’s mother has been very kind and she was very flexible for our check in! Otavalo is absolutely a place where I would go back because there is not only a very characteristic market but many walking tours that you can do daily starting from there!

    Gaia2017-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great space. Great location. Great value. Perfect for a family or group of friends.

Mil gracias a Monica y a toda su familia que se esmera muchisimo por tener un lugar perfecto para sus huespedes. 100% recomendado.

  • Appartement très propre,spacieux et calme,assez proche du centre ville. Monica est très accueillante.

    Marie Noelle2016-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Monica's place is absolutely perfect for a stay in Otavalo. There were three bedrooms, European duvet style sheets, and a spacious living space. The apartment was just for us and it was an excellent value. It would be perfect for four people or a family, but it was affordable just for the two of us. It is in a quiet residencial part of the city but only a ten minute walk to the centre. Communication with Monica was excellent as well. I would definitely recommend her place during your stay in Otavalo!!

    Kathi2017-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was wonderful, and Monica was very kind and helpful. The beds were clean, the water was warm, and the people were friendly — all at a great price. What more could you want?

    Chris2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place very clean Monica and her daughter were very friendly. We enjoyed our stay, we walked everywhere from the place. I would recommend this place very highly.

  • La estadía fue muy romántica, cerca al volcán Imbabura y las estrellas. Me encantó el alojamiento los detalles rústicos. Se nos complico la llegada, la calle era polvosa y es recomendable ir en un 4x4. Flor Marina estuvo atenta a cualquier inquietud. RECOMENDADO

    Isabel2018-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • The house is absolute very romantic with an amazing view! However not all the photos are up to date and from town it’s about 17min waking up the hill. We had a very warm welcome and the hosts helped right away with any questions.

    Fabyan2018-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • My stay in this cute cabin in the hills of Otavalo was sensational. The views were outstanding, the hospitality was phenomenal, and the experience was the best I could have asked for. Flor and Oscar were incredible hosts, making sure I was well taken care of. Beautiful souls. Any time spent here will be one for the books. It’s a little tough getting up to the cabin for the first time. It would be helpful if you have (Hidden by Airbnb) on your phone before you go. Ask them to send their location through the app. If you go on the weekend, try to make it to the Otavalo street market on Saturdays. It’s humongous. So many beautiful people and colors.

    Victoria2018-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t even know where to start because this stay was outstanding. Flor Marina and Oscar are beautiful individual, very helpful, caring and loving. The cabin was the amazing and my favorite part was the bathroom tube with the amazing clear view. The place as whole was very peaceful, and breath taking . It was close to a lot of sight seeing, hikes and other towns. I can continue bragging of this amazing staying. We will definitely coming back to to stay here and Ecuador is just beauty all around. Gracias Flor Marina and Oscar for this wonderful experience. ❤️

    We are close to the famous indigenous textile and animal markets in Otavalo, the sacred Peguche waterfall, beautiful Cuicocha, Mojanda and San Pablo lakes. The hot springs at Chachimbiro are a real treat! There are numerous restaurants in Otavalo and the surrounding towns. You can purchase beautiful handmade textiles from the Otavalo market, woodcraft from San Antonio and leather goods in Cotacachi.
  • It's a perfect place to stay in Otavalo. The large room (with two double beds and table and chairs) is very well appointed. A coffee maker and tea is provided. The beds are really comfortable. There are even wool blankets. The location is about a 5 minute cab ride from the centre of town but it's better than staying in town. The location is pretty and it's quiet. Marci and Malkum are such generous and hospitable people that respect your privacy but at the same time provide the contact necessary to ensure that you have information or any necessary items very soon to hand. They both went out of their way to make us feel at home. We felt that it was a privilege to stay with them. They're relaxed and very interested in and positive about the cultures around them. Otavalo is a special place for us now thanks in great measure to Casa Olana. Thank you both very much. PS, we extended our stay from 3 days to 6 and wish we'd had longer!

    Philip2017-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Marci and Malkum’s place was everything we could have hoped and more. Not only was Malkum incredibly accommodating of our arrival and departure times, he went out of his way to help us get around Otavalo and gave us many tips for things to do in Ecuador. The house is gorgeous and in such an amazing location. If I ever come back to Otavalo, I wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else. 11/10–thank you Malkum!!!!

    Shannon2018-09-02T00:00:00Z

    Thomas2017-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • We are so glad that we found Marci's place that we extended our stay. After 4 month in Latin America we finally found peace and tranquility. The space is very comfortable, great beds, hot shower, coffee in the morning and PEACE. Marci and Malculm are great hosts. We would have never found the places that they showed us. They love Ecuador and are willing to make an extra effort to show this part of it to their guests. The terrace is a fantastic bonus. You can see both volcanoes in the morning while sipping a great coffee. The sunsets are beautiful and dramatic. Thank you so much for everything. We had an unforgettable experience.

    Lolita2018-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and tucked away room on a nice garden just outside of town. We loved having wine on the roof at sunset and marveling at the many volcanoes off in the distance. Great value and Malcom & Marci are great hosts!

    Kyle2017-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • El alojamiento fue más de lo que esperaba, a pesar de que todos los comentarios sobre el sitio son muy buenos. Al llegar ya te emociona el espectacular paisaje, jardines, montañas, aire puro y sabes que hice una buena elección. Muchas gracias Malkum por tu amabilidad y buen humor. La habitación realmente cómoda y con buena vista.

La comida estaba rica y teniamos una vista hermosa por otavalo y los volcanos alrededores.

    Gerrit2018-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • Luz and her family are extremely warm and welcoming.

    Nadine2018-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • We wish we could have stayed longer in Otavalo and with our hosts, who were very friendly and accommodating. The hostel is perched on a hillside overlooking the town. We liked being away from the noise of the city center while also being a short walk away. Otavalo has a lot to see and do, and we enjoyed its many attractions. A highlight for us, though, was our evening chat by the fire with Matilde and Jose. It was interesting to hear about their childhoods and learn some of the local customs and beliefs. Both were clearly committed to making this hostel as good as it can be and improving upon their guests' experiences even further. If you are planning a trip to Otavalo, we recommend spending at least a few days, and we recommend staying here. Gracias de nuevo a los dueños por una estancia excelente.

    Mark2018-06-02T00:00:00Z

  • Si tengo que describir nuestra estancia en casa de Nina y Edison en Otavalo en una sola palabra diria que ha sido "maravillosa!". Desde cuando estaba decidiendo donde quedarnos y los contacte haciendo mil preguntas ellos se han demonstrado muy disponibles Y atentos a cada duda y eso fue muy importante para mi ya que se noto' alli mismo la pasion que le ponen al trabajo que hacen. La casa es perfecta, super limpia y los colchones muy comodos, la verdad es que nos sentimos muy a gusto, casi como en nuestra casa! El desayuno preparado por Edison vestido con el traje tradicional fue muy bueno y abundante, ademas apreciamos muchisimo su disponibilidad en acompañarnos a las 6.30 de la mañana a ver el mercado de animales que nos encanto'.. Aconsejo este lugar sin alguna duda y volvere a visitar mi familia en Otavalo lo mas pronto posible <3

    Silvia2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • The location and communication here is excellent. You are a walk away from everything including the main bus terminal and yet you still feel like you're in a very safe, laid back neighborhood. The daily breakfast was great and Edison was always eager to help. Can't say enough good things. Be sure to bring earplugs for at night, but in our experience you'll need those wherever you go in Ecuador ☺️ this is the place to stay in Otavalo.

    Hailey2018-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay at Andes Guesthouse. Excellent home and very lovely house. Our host even accompanied us to the craft market and the cattle market. I recommend !

    Thibaut2017-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location near to the big artesan market (abt 5 blocks away and the hosts walked us there so we didn't get lost!)...very sweet, kind, helpful and thoughtful hosts...comfortable beds, sweet little touches int he apartment...great place, definitely recommended!

    Angela2018-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • It's a very nice place in a good location. Nice breakfast was included.

    Robert2018-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Andes Guest House was SO much more than we expected. The space was huge and very comfortable. But the best part was our awesome host, Edison. He came to our apartment every morning to prepare our breakfast, then returned to clean it all after we finished. He kept the whole apartment sparkling, even offering to make our beds, which we declined. It was like having a personal butler. But the icing on the cake was that he played the flute for us after breakfast on our first morning. Another plus is that there is a washing machine. The only drawback was the lack of hot water. A typical Ecuadorian home, with what some people call "hot water on demand" in the shower. It was just luke warm, and the sink water was icy. We are North American ex-pats living on the ccoast and we hate cold, but this is not enough to keep us from returning to Andes Guest House whenever we are back in Otavalo.

    Sandra2018-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • We haven't had an opportunity to meet Nina but her husband was an incredible host! The place was big with a fully equiped kitchen, nice big balcony and views on the mountain. He also offered to clean our kitchen and bathroom during our stay! Fresh fruit was delivered to our door every morning for breakfast! The first evening they played traditional music for us which was very nice of them! :-) Private transportation is also possible, they took us to the Cuicocha lake and came back for us in the afternoon for a very reasonable price! We highly recommend this place!

  • Great family, very warm welcome and made us feel at home. Good location, however we recommend that you call before you arrive as the address is wrong on air bnb and the map is also wrong. other than this, very nice.

    Capucine2018-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, walking distance from anywhere you'd like to go, including the waterfalls, the Otavalango Museum, Plaza Pancho, and the bus station. The host was very helpful with giving directions.

    Small comfortable house located in beautiful Andean countryside, just 4km from famous market town of Otavalo. Property located within the grounds of Hosteria La Luna. Enjoy great views, clean air and hummingbird spotting while relaxing on the deck .
    We are located in a rural area, just a 15 minute drive from the center of Otavalo.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed the Hummingbird House. The surroundings were beautiful and serene and a welcome relief from the busy- ness of the cities. The listing is accurate about the cottage except that the fourth person has to sleep on a convertible couch. The staff were helpful and always ready to answer questions or make a call for you. Tamara was a delightful host and checked in regularly. The meals we had there were delicious and we had a couple of suppers in the LaLuna lodge. We would love to come back to this beautiful part of the world.

    Philip2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing . Go here and enjoy the surroundings. La Luna lodge right across the road has good food and is also a nice place to meet other people and hang around they're fireplace. Would definitely recommend..

    Isabella2018-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin, Tamara and Emma and long with the staff of Susie, Fernando, Rosa, Kris, Melissa and everyone else they had there were all very gracious host. This may sound like a cliché but we really felt like we were home. We stayed there for over 30 days so it was our home for a little while. The home was listed accurately and actually nicer than I expected. The pictures are up to date and accurate but the views in person were so much better. The Hummingbird Home is situated up in the mountains where it's quite and safe. I felt free to let my kids roam around to explore the area and they were often accompanied by what I'll call our dogs. There are 5 friendly dogs around the hostel and they quickly make you feel at home and safe to be around. We LOVED it there!!!! And hope to come back to visit sooner than later.

    Marvin2015-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect!!!

    Angelika2017-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome value, beautiful location, great house. Highly recommend!

    Kyle And Mariah2018-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The staff made as feel very welcome. We met Tamara and Kevin while there. Fires were lit every night and all our needs were met. The photos were representative and true to the description. A very well equipped kitchen. Fireplace adequate to heat the whole house. Fresh flowers and stupendous views. Wish we had more time to relax. We used the wifi, but didn't actually eat meals from restaurant/bar, but they looked great and reasonably priced.

    Debra2015-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • We just loved the House. It is really a dream to stay there. It is a quiet area and you can go hiking e.g to the laguna mojada. You need 1 Hour more or lees if you would like to walk to the City of Otavalo which is nice. We ate twice at the hostel la luna and the stuff is so helpful and really nice. If we should come back to Ecuador definitely to Humingbird House. Thx Kevin and all employes from La Luna!!!

    Jens2016-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Hummingbird House is conveniently located next to the La Luna mountain lodge, which will make your stay in a rather remote area incredibly comfortable since the lodge can provide breakfast and dinner. The hummingbird house offers many rooms, a great kitchen, and balcony with hammock. The views from there and from the front porch on the valley and on the snow capped volcanoes in the area are truly amazing. And of course there is hummingbirds! Kevin and his wife Tamara -as well as the kind staff at the lodge- are are there to help with anything that could possibly come up. They are a great source for suggestions for activities and have lots of information about the the surrounding area. I can only recommend a stay!

For more information, contact us by inbox or (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) or (Email hidden by Airbnb)
    There are multiple rooms, and these are available for individuals, couples or traveling groups.

Brand new rooms in the second floor with comfortable beds and a shared bathroom with a hot shower that were just built in 2015. Rooms are also available without beds for sleeping on bedrolls with sleeping bags for bigger groups with up to 30 people.

This town is known for its incredible leather-workand handicrafts, it`s located 10min away from a beautiful crater lake named Laguna de Cuicocha and it is surrounded by intense and colourful cultural life consisting of a mix of indigenous, mestizo and colonial traditions.
  • La familia es un amor y la casa es bien acogedora. Es para quienes buscan una experiencia auténtica, rústica y tranquila. La habitación era muy confortable y muy limpia. La comida estaba deliciosa! Estancia no apta para quienes esperen grandes lujos ni para los que tengan sueño ligero (los perros ladran por la noche si hay intrusos y los gallos cantan bien temprano en la mañana).

    Marta2016-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • I have had a lovely time staying with this family (in total a month). They have been welcoming. They have showed me the ropes on how to use the local bus system as well as brought me on many family trips with them. It is only a 15-20 minute walk into town or the bus stop is only a block or two away. On top of that, I have met other family members who have been just as welcoming. If you want to an authentic experience living with an Ecuadorian family I would highly recommend living with this family.

    Caroline2016-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Patricia and her family, are so warm and friendly. We felt at home right away. Patricia had suggestions of activities each day. Not the usual touristy stuff, but seeing real life Ecuador happen. She had 2 beautiful gardens, she cooked most of the meals from. Good food. Her children are very entertaining and fun. I defiantly recommend her.

    Laguna2015-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • It was a beautiful, homely experience. I never felt more welcome as a guest. You provided so much assistance and quality experience, I couldn't imagine a world without your wonderful family.

    Kara2015-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Un accueil très chaleureux dans cette famille qui n'hésite pas à partager sa culture. Vous vous sentirez rapidement chez eux comme chez vous.

  • Un lugar especial, con una familia especial. No tengo ningún queja

    Samuel2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Once I saw the hammock, I knew I was in the right place. The grounds and gardens were wonderful to explore and relax in. Patricia is an excellent host, I really enjoyed her taking me to both the indigenous market and the local open air market.

    Carol2018-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed one night at the Albergue family, which was such a great experience. It was the birthday of Patricia (the owner) and I was invited to join her birthday party along with her family. I can definitly recommend this place to stay over, also the town Cotocachi is a nice place to visit and is on walking distance from the house. I also visited from there the Laguna de Cuicocha and the Otavalo market.

  • STAY HERE!! The picture is not accurate, this is a walled compound and Juan built a lovely two story cottage, I call it the tree house. Comfortable with a lovely porch to sit at night and observe the compound. Juan has coffee plants, fig trees, pomegranate trees and many other delightful plants. He would visit me each evening and show me the wonderful things he was growing. The family had a beautify clay oven and they baked fresh breads each day for resale. I met his daughters, his lovely wife and grandparents. They all have homes in the compound but I had all the privacy in the world. It was a unique experience. Neighborhood was safe safe safe. Strategic, across the street from the bus station so getting to Quito, or Cotacachi etc. was a 2 minute walk. Lots of small local restaurants within walking distance. Lots of markets to purchase wonderful gifts and handcrafted goods. Never did a feel unsafe in Otavalo. Walked early mornings, late at night, all good. Clean city, walkable and a manageable city size, no need for a taxi. Food is cheap, a nice lunch for $2, a nice pilsner for $1.25!!. Best place in Otavalo!!! trust me!!! The Otavalons are hard working people and are good business people so they trive and are all very self sufficient!!

    John2016-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was excellent! Aesthetically, this was the nicest place we stayed in two months in Ecuador. The gardens are beautiful. Although the room is very small, it is clean, new construction with a unique design and lots of attention to detail. Beautiful woodwork. The bathroom smelled good. The family was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. You do have to go outside for the wifi to work. Also, the room was very chilly at times. This could easily be resolved with a space heater. Bring your earplugs - there is a rooster right outside that crows all night long!

    Kiela2016-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Juan Alex has been an incredible host, making sure the cabaña, where we stayed, had everything we needed. He also took us to visit a nice place in the middle of nature, the laguna de Cuicocha. He is a kind, generous and hardworking person. He built the cabañas himself, and they are all new. Hot shower worked perfectly which was a treat for us after traveling for months and not having this kind of comfort in other places. At our departure day he accompanied us to the bus terminal to say goodbye :-) We highly recommend staying at Juan Alex cabañas!

    Diana & Lucas2015-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Fue un gran placer a quedar en las cabañas de Juan. My sister and I were the first to stay in Juan's newest beautiful cabana addition. We could not have been more happy with our stay! Since the cabin was brand new there were a few things that needed to be finished, but Juan was quick to get it done. He was an excellent host and even took time out of his weekend to take us on personal tours of the surrounding area. It was truly a one of a kind experience! If we are ever in Otavalo again we will be sure to stay here and would recommend it to everyone. Gracias por todo!

    Veronica2015-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first AirBNB stay and it was so incredible. Juan and his family are the nicest people we have met so far in Ecuador... they took us all around Otavalo and surrounding mountains and lakes, showing us what a real Ecuadorian experience is. We ate together, drank together, and shared our cultures for hours upon end. The room is wonderful. Very clean, bright, and with its own bathroom. You can use the fireplace outside too. It´s not absolutely silent here, but I doubt anywhere in Ecuador is. I highy, highly recommend Juan and his family´s home for a stay in Otavalo. ***** Si usted quiere hablar con yo sobre Juan en espanol, mandame un mensaje y puedo responder in espanol.

    Modern, secure apartment in center of town with private parking and a spectacular view. Walking distance to plaza de ponchos, central square and other attractions. Hot water in sinks and showers. Yes! You can flush the toilet paper! :-)
    Guests have full access to the apartment, private garage, and roof top terrace with spectacular views. On request, there is a small table and chairs available to relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset from the roof.
    The apartment is located in the center of Otavalo, very near the beautiful Parque Bolivar and close to Plaza de Ponchos, the largest Indigenous market in South America. Situated in a safe neighborhood, you have easy access to taxis, buses or you can easily walk to so many restaurants and shops. Even at night, you will feel very safe staying here. The streets are well lit and many professionals live nearby, especially in this building. Situated at the higher side of Otavalo, views from the rooftop terrace are magnificent! Imbabura, Mojanda/Fuya Fuya, and Cotaccachi volcanoes are breathtakingly positioned for your enjoyment. In the evening, you can enjoy wonderful and colorful sunsets with your favorite adult beverage in hand!
  • Apartment was very spacious and great for 2 couples. The pictures don't do it justice. The beds were very comfortable and linens were great. We loved having English TV and Netflixs after a month of travelling. John and Camille were wonderful hosts and gave us lots of tips on restaurants and things to do. We booked last minute and they responded immediately. Also the location was perfect, close enough to walk everywhere but far enough from the centre for quiet night sleep. We would highly recommend this apartment.

    marie2017-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Easy to find and close to the otavalo shopping. Segure bilding and good parking place if have a car. Place was clean and the beds was comfortables. Really enjoy visiting. Had no problems at all.

    Melissa2018-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying with John while we were in Otavalo for the day. His space is located just off the central plaza and easy walking distance to the artisan market. The space is nicely furnished and has all the amenities of a modern apartment. John was helpful when we arrived early and he allowed us to store our bags in his private space (he was even kind enough to bring them down when we checked in later). If you are looking for a clean, well-furnished space when you are visiting Otavalo we would highly recommend John's apartment.

    Amy And Michael2018-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, safe, spacious and confortable. Close to everything. You can walk from the bus station to the apartment if you don’t have many luggages, it’s about 10 minutes walk. otherwise it’s about $ 1,50 for a taxi. Everything was perfect. Just don’t expect to sleep in much in the morning because there is a rooster right next door who’s up very early, but it’s part of the Ecuadorian experience I guess!!! I recommend this place and would go back. John has been extremely helpful in welcoming us and giving us ideas on where to go and what to visit.

    Lucie And Jiri2017-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is awesome! Even better than the pictures - John was great at check-in and left an amazing document with so much info and local recommendations. Close to the local market and other great shops. We had a great time!

    Kendra2018-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is fantastic!! Super comfy beds and furniture. Very clean and spacious. Good WiFi and Netflix TV. Just one block from parque Bolívar and a 5 min walk to plaza de ponchos. Highly recommend!! John was flexible with check- in and check- out times to work with our travel schedule. There is also a great laundrymat one block down.

    Lauren2018-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We needed a really last minute place to stay in Otavalo and were so glad to find this apartment. John was responsive quickly, and we were able to arrive at the time we needed, get the keys, etc. John and Camille were super friendly, and very helpful (they've lived in Otavalo for years). Place was clean and really well furnished. Beautiful view of mountains! Located in town which I personally liked (convenient) and it was pretty quiet, too. We hope to come back for a longer stay another time.

    Rebeca2017-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay. Elizabeth was very helpful and communicative. I asked a question and she responded on both email and (Hidden by Airbnb) , which is very thoughtful. The location was great, right in the center of town, only a few minutes from Plaza de los Ponchos, only 1.5 blocks from the other center square and six blocks from the bus stop at the south entrance to town. Everything was clean and functional. WiFi worked in the room. The room is inside the building with a window to the courtyard so there is no street noise. The only drawback is that there is no refrigerator in the kitchen. You can ask and Michelle's mother will gladly put something in her fridge, but that wouldn't be convenient if you wanted something at 2 AM. Otherwise, everything was great!

  • Perfect place to stay in Otavalo! A little away from the hustle and bustle of the main Plaza de los Ponchos, but just a 2 minute walk from lovely Parque Simon Bolivar and still only 5 minute walk from the Plaza de los Ponchos. The room is located on the second story and opens to a large patio with a beautiful view of surrounding mountains. The room itself is large, with comfy bed, a little desk, and its own private bathroom with hot water for shower. Adriana is a wonderful, sweet woman and a great host. Very welcoming and helpful with questions about things to do in Otavalo, and her breakfasts are so delicious and healthy, and it was really nice sharing them with her and her family and other guests. Would highly recommend Adriana´s place to couples or solo travelers visiting Otavalo!

    Stephanie2017-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • La chambre est parfaite, sur la terasse en dehors de la maison ce qui vous permet d'avoir votre tranquillité. La maison se trouve au centre, prêt de tout. C'est un petit endroit super sympa et la famille est très acueuillante et répond à toutes les questions. Merci beaucoup, j'ai passé un excellent séjour dans cette chambre. Endroit recommandé à 100%!

    Marica2017-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Adriana and her husband have two rooms on the rooftop of their house that are quite cosy and were a perfect place to relax a little in my time in Otavalo. The location of the house is really convenient - just two blocks from the main square (Simon Bolivar). Adriana was always very kind and helpful and really tried to make my stay as good as possible. Definitely Recommended!

    Cozy and comfortable cabin located in beautiful Andean countryside, with beautiful views of the volcanoes and San Pablo Lake. Just 15 minutes from Otavalo. Ushaloma is the perfect place to get away from everything and just relax and reconnect with nature. You can cook your own food. During day time you can go hiking and enjoy stunning views or take a $6 taxi ride to Otavalo where you can enjoy restaurants, coffee shops and admire the handicrafts. During the night a wood stove will keep you warm.
    Beautiful meadows, sunrises and sunsets surround the bungalow. We are located in a rural area, 15 minutes from downtown Otavalo and in the way to Mojanda Lagoon. It is a quiet place, with little birds, cows and horses that visit us from time to time. You have access to a terrace from where you can see Lake San Pablo and the volcano "Taita Imbabura". You can also take a 20 minutes walk to a really nice waterfall. The bungalow has one bedroom with a double bed on the ground floor and an open attic with 2 single beds. It has a large open living-dining room with big windows that allow you to see the surroundings. It has a bathroom. It has a fireplace that can be lit gently every night by the caretaker of the house. It has a small kitchen and basic implements to prepare your own food. There is no microwave or oven.
  • La cabaña tiene una vista espectacular, es muy cómoda, acogedora e ideal para ir en familia. María está muy pendiente de todo y contesta enseguida cualquier duda que tengas. Disfrutamos mucho nuestra estadía!

  • This is a MUST.... the location alone is worth the trip up the mountain. It is a peace of heaven. The pictures don’t do it justice. I wished I had more time to just spend in the cottage relaxing and taking in the views of the mountains and the lake below. The house itself is spotless and has everything you need. Gloria came every night and lit the fireplace and she was extremely helpful with any questions we had. I can’t wait to return and spend more time in the cottage

  • An amazing location and host. Had a fabulous time with no issues at all and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great get away. The house has amazing views, every accessary you may need and great furnishings. I would very much recommend an SUV or larger vehicle of you are renting a car, but the drive and the view is absolutely worth it. I hope to come back often.

  • Very nice and comfortable house with a wonderful view of Otavalo, lake and the Imbabura volcano. Nice and peaceful surroundings. A great place to relax away from the city crowds but also close to the surrounding attractions. Nice and obliging host.

  • This house is like walking into a movie set! It is so beautiful. I agree, the pictures do not do it justice! It is impeccably decorated and the views are breathtaking. It is one of the most beautiful homes we saw in Equador. Gloria lives next door and is there to help with any needs and she comes to start the wood stove nightly. There is no heat in the house but the stove keeps it plenty warm. It is quite a trek from town- a 15 min truck ride but well worth it. Taxi's can't make it up the road but they connected us with a driver who was our transport during our stay. A stop at the grocery is a good idea prior to driving up as it is very rural but that is its beauty. A favorite stop in Equador for sure!

  • If you come across this cabin book it. The pictures on the site do not compare to the actual beauty you will see all around you. The cabin is perfect with everything you need. New modern kitchen and full bath with plenty of hot water. The living space is like home and beautifully decorated. Gloria who lives next door is fantastic she will take care of you. She came every evening to light the fire in the heat stove and daily she would set up a sitting space on the back porch. The views around the cabin are incredible and we looked forwards every afternoon coming home to enjoy the surroundings at the end of the day. María is a great host super attentive to all of our needs. This is a rural cabin but no worries they will make arrangements to meet you and take you up the mountain when you arrive. If I could give this place more stars I would.

  • The pictures do not do justice- the cabin is lovely, great windows with one of the worlds best view! Furniture, accents are traditional and functional and lovely pieces of art. Simply stated it’s breathtaking. You will need 4x4 and mosquitoe repellent- get your groceries first - and then enjoy!

  • My husband and I stayed at Maria's home for 4 nights. We absolutely loved her home. The view, the landscape, the design and decor are all spectacular and made it a very special place for us. The kitchen was excellently equipped with everything that we needed to prepare meals. Gloria, who lives in the house next to Maria's home, was extremely helpful and kind. She came each evening to light a fire in the wood burning stove, provided fresh pineapple and fruits at our arrival, and met us in town to accompany us to Maria's home for the first time. Eventually we figured out getting around in our 4x2 rental car from the house, but with limited Spanish and it being our first time in Ecuador, we found navigating the steep grade and the unmarked streets to be a bit of a challenge. That being said, we would stay at Maria's home again in a heartbeat.

    Furnished cabana, kitchen, private access. Avocado, lemon and eucaliptus trees near your door and colibri flying all-day long. I can offer you breakfasts and lunches for few dollars more. And there are plenty of shops and street food vendors around.
    Best for a couple or single traveller. It is a cabana with furniture, paintings on the walls, fully-equipped kitchen and of course wi-fi and cable internet for your laptop! :)All-day long clear view on Imbabura, own forest on territory. You can collect avocados and lemons for yourself. I have special breeders for hummingbirds.
    It is calm and safe. Not many cars. Very clear and significant view of Imbabura.
  • Our experience with Miryan was absolutely phenomenonal. It was by far the best Air Bnb experience that we have ever had. From the second she greeted us and made us feel at home to the sad but inevitable departure, Miryan did everything she could to make us as happy and comfortable as possible. She speaks great English! Like Otavalo, the cabin was so very charming. The fireplace kept us warm all throughout the chilly nights (and we made smores!), and the kitchen allowed us to prepare simple and healthy meals (Miryan will also prepare you delicious and healthy meals for a little extra... the breakfast was out of this world!) The comfortable and warm bed easily accommodated two! On the weekend, the neighbors did make some noise, but they respectfully turned down the volume a little after dark. She has two of the best dogs in Ecuador. Machu and Coyote were full of love and greeted us every morning with wagging tails and happiness! The location was perfect and allowed us to walk to the city center in 15 minutes. We highly recommend that you stay in this wonderful cabin and experience Miryan's breathtaking hospitality and kindness!!!

  • After extending our stay I can only say again that this far and away the BEST place to stay in Otavalo!! See my previous review for more detail about this amazing airBNB and book without hesitation!

    Amos2015-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Myrian is a wonderfull host ! Her little cabana is perfect, close to Otavalo and far enough to be quiet .. I recommand it :)

    Marie-Claire2015-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • J'ai aimer mon séjour avec un paysage fantastique un peu retirer de la ville avec de grands espaces et le feu foyer pour nous réchauffer et une hôte attentive à nos besoins ce fut de beaux moments!

  • I had a great stay in Miryan's lodginghouse a few months so I came back to stay here again. And the second time was just as good as the first. I think this comfortably rustic cabin has become my official place to stay on my trips to Otavalo. I also like spending time chatting with Miryan and getting lots of good transportation and hiking advice from her, playing with her dog Machu, and relaxing on the lawn with the incredible view of Volcán Imbabura.

    Kris2015-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was a tad too rustic for us. Appliances were old and dated. Bathroom was dated. Was hard to sleep with traffic outside the cabin and dogs barking everywhere. Miryan did the best she could.

    Gautam2018-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • As a couple we were so happy that found Miryan and her casa on our arrival to Otavalo. We've spent more than a week here and it was our home far away from home. Cosy as your own little cabana can be. Chimney, kitchen, hammocks, calibri outside and beautiful Machu (most friendlier dog we saw). We had stable internet and delicious home food from Miryan for little extra. We were happy here and recommend this place to all our ftiends and those, seeking for a safe and quite retreat.

    Evgeniy2014-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had difficulty finding Miryan's home, so she walked to the end of her road to flag us down on the Panamerican! She gave us a tour of her lovely property, with beautiful flowers, fruit trees, and lots of butterflies, and told us to let her know if we needed anything during our two night stay. Our accommodations were basic. The bed was comfortable, but the house was musty and triggered my allergies.

    Sunnymoe has a nice house in Tokyo. Conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood near the train station. He picked me up from the station even if its late in the night due to my delayed flight. He even prepared a meal for me. His place is a perfect alternative from the usual hotel accommodation. The room is spacious, with fresh comforters, good toilet and bath and kitchen appliances. I definitely consider booking again on my next holiday in Tokyo.
