5.8 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was excellent. We received an upgrade to a bigger room, which was very kind. They lit the fireplace in the room and put a hotwater tob in the bed which is very comfortable. Very friendly staff.. sometimes a little bit uncomfortable, since we were the only guests and there were five people just for us...
Cons: Smell in the room is awful (artificial flower smell), the roof was leaking in my husbands suitcase and all his clothes were wet. Shower was not clean. Ridiculous prices. They offered us to make a sandwich for a hike (one piece of bread with cheese) and they charged 16,60 dollars (incl VAT) for this! They also gave us two bottles of water which was 4,50 dollars (500 meters further in the city it is 50 cents!). We said this to the manager and she said it are normal prices. Further our main stay in this hotel was to hike around cuicocha lake. It was raining a little bit on the day we wanted to hike and the staff said we should definitely not go, but visit a marked. We did go and had a perfect hike. In general the hotel is completely outdated.. it is like we were back in the 70’s
9.6 Excellent
Pros: fireplace with a lit fire in the room, hot water bottles in the bed, the grounds & the peacocks, the breakfast, the dinner and the quirky things that came with it and rose petals on the table. the stay was for our anniversary and it was super romantic! we were also allowed to use the jacuzzi which is normally only for people who have booked spa treatments, but we were the only ones there so i think that's why they invited us to use it. we had the whole hotel, bar & restaurant to ourselves on the night we stayed!
Cons: wine was very pricey (cheapest just under $50 a bottle with tax) and that was for a fairly basic one we can buy in supermarkets at home.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything is perfection at La Mirage. The staff consistently exceeded our expectations, always attuned to our every need, while never being indifferent or obsequious. Breakfast in the gardens was outstanding - suited my desire for unsugared muesli and natural yogurt and the freshest of fruits, and my husband enjoyed his perfectly-prepared fried huevos y pan integral. Dinners are elegant, with the same outstanding service and decor, and the peacocks sit right outside your window. I enjoyed a fantastic massage and relaxed by the pool. You must experience this step back into a time gone by, with all modern amenities for your enjoyment (excellent hot water showers, electric heat, and good wifi).
Cons: Everything was perfection. We hope to visit La Mirage again soon.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful decor and grounds, lovely welcoming staff and dinner was more than a treat - it was fantastic and full of surprises.
Cons: Just needed tea and coffee making facilities in the room to be perfect.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff are wonderful, our suite was beautiful and very comfortable, there were fresh cut roses everywhere, the food in the restaurant was excellent, the spa treatment was the best I have ever had, the pool area is peaceful and beautifully decorated with plenty of loungers, the level of service and attention to detail are second to none, the gardens are lovely, we loved seeing the peacocks. Simply heavenly!
Cons: The hotel organised a horse ride with a local hacienda, which did not represent good value and was our worst horse riding experience in South America. The wine in the restaurant is very expensive.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I like the swimming pool, and the bedroom. Also I think is very especial al the garden.
Cons: I think that food could be better, more options in the menu and in breakfast

They even provided transport to Otavalo and helped in every way for things like finding an ATM in town. The service includes a nice breakfast and you can have dinner within this nice hotel the rooms of which are situated around a courtyard and a beautiful garden. The rooms are nice and comfortable. Rosa will bring you a bouillotte with wat water to warm your feet during the night. There is also a jacuzzi offering relaxation at any time of the day.
Cons: The premises are very tastefully built and situated like an oasis in the middle of a rather uninspiring area. Unfortunately we need to say that the quality of sleep is very poor here. There was very loud music from 6 am from nearby churches in a Sunday morning and gun shootings till very late. The location was also rather difficult to reach even by taxi so it is best to call ahead Rosa to give instructions to the driver.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: From Balcony or your bunk bed you can seen whole Ottavalo sarounded by mountain. In the evening it was amazing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location with a beautiful view! Very comfortable beds, a nice little terrace and a kitchen with all you need. The owner is very friendly and happily explains everything there is to see around Otavalo. Best choice in town I would say!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: A bit concerned when we first arrived but the place quickly grows on you. Not too far from town but away from the noise. Secure access. Staff's English skills are limited but Oswaldo is a friendly and helpful host. Special mention to Jenny who did our washing for us (and needs to put her price up).
Cons: Room was smaller than we'd thought, hampered by an unnecessary lounge chair where there could be a storage unit (but what a view!) The larger triple room would be a better choice if you like to spread out. Shower could have been hotter but that is the case for our stays in Guayaquil, Mindo and Quito too. Having a supply of maps in various languages on hand would be beneficial.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The cabins were very well designed and kitted out. The views were fantastic from the property and it was only a short walk from town.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hostel is beautiful. You have a room but you are connected to the nature and the outdoors as well. Perfect for me. I do not like stuffy hotels. The staff is amazing. Oswald told me about all of the places I can go and how to get there. He even come up to my room personally and gave me medicine and tea when I felt sick from all my traveling. There is a full kitchen so you can prepare meals and a laundry station so you can hand wash your laundry. The only thing was that the shower water was not very hot and on a cold night that doesn’t feel very good. That is a small problem though. If you want to walk to El Lechero, the cóndor park, and the waterfall you can walk from the hostel. It is a beautiful, unpaved path through the mountains and the indigenous communities. Be prepared though it is an all day adventure. You can also easily take a taxi. Supermarket and other sites are a 5 minute walk. Thank you for your hospitality! Good luck!
Cons: Shower water is not very hot
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The bed and blankets are super super comfortable. Hot/warm shower 95% of the time (as compared to alternating 50% warm/cold showers at other hostels). And the hot water heats up fast enough for Ecuador standards. I stayed one extra night just because of the comfort. For once I don’t feel cold in the room. Good views from the dining area and free filtered water. There’s a kitchen and fridge too. The owner is super kind to make me a simple breakfast on my last day and drove me to the bus terminal without me asking! I realised he was waiting for me to finish my breakfast to drive me over, how nice! No english but he was patient with google translation so there’s no problem.
Cons: You need maps.me to locate the place - it’s not sign-posted, but with the app, I found the place immediately. 3 mins walk from Hostal chashuiq (something like that), once you take the stairs up (or the slope), it’s 1-2 mins away. After the entrance, theres a lot of stairs to climb to get into the actual Hostal and it’s not lit so the walk is in the dark. Not for people with walking problems or heavy suitcase. I’m not complaining as I really like my room, but this is for your info in case it matters.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What an amazing place to stay! Really cute and cozy cabins that allow you to fully relax. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfy, and always hot water. The view of the city is incredible from the garden terrace. Oswaldo and Jenny are extremely nice, helpful, and always avaialble to answer any questions. Such a cheap and affordable price for a boutique stay!

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Hot shower
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Flying Donkey became more than just a hostel for us during the period where there was a massive protest in Ecuador and tourists were trapped in Otavalo. they allow us to cook food (when all restaurants and shops are closed), let us extend out stay for the same price( i heard some hostel/hotels in area started to increase price) and genuinely concern for our well-being. i am speaking on behalf of all the guest, thank you very much. stay here guys, this hostel is one of the best in Otavalo!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I stayed in the Hostel during the nationale strike in Ecuador. Si everything was closed and there was no transport. The people of the reception gave us very good information about what was happening and what are options were. The kitchen is very cleen and confortable. Also a very nice rooftopterras.
7.5 Good
Pros: Great location, very close to plaza de ponchos and just about 10min walk to the bus terminal. The staff ist lovely! Very friendly and helpful. Overall the hostel ist nicely decorated and there is a good kitchen. The view from the rooftop is great!
Cons: The beds in the dorm were a little hard. Bathroom was always wet since there was no shower curtain.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We had a nice, small room with everything we needed, but we just stayed there one night to go to the big market on saturday. For that the location is really nice, because the hostel is located in the centre and maybe a two-minute walk from the beginning of the market.
Cons: The bed was a little bit hard and the room was basic, but for the price that was alright.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Located right in the centre of Otavalo, great staff, well equipped kitchen. Clean and comfortable rooms, good showers.
7.9 Good
Pros: Comfortable bed and clean, they give you free towel. Kitchen was well equipped. Michelle the staff is nice. Got hot shower, apparently a lot of other hostels don't have it.
Cons: Really really noisy. The only social place is the kitchen, the night I arrived from the Colombia border, just wanted to cook quickly and went to bed. But a group of people in the hostel decided to cook together, they took over the place and even after finishing their meals, they stayed there playing really loud musics and singing until really late, and occupied the table even if I need a table to eat, so I had to go eat at the reception sofa. Since my dorm room was just across the kitchen, I could hear everything from the kitchen. And the staff didn't say anything to them until the other guests also couldn't stand it, that they asked the staff to go tell them. The second night again, some people were in the kitchen recording their song, and although it's really nice song, but after you heard it for 50 times, you felt annoyed too. The hostel should have a quite time rule since the only social place is the kitchen and it's next to the rooms and please put one more table... The hostel was behind the theater, so in my dorm, every day from day to night I was forced to listen to the horror movie IT and the sound of the plumber. Don't know how to describe if it's sociable or not, the first night, so many people, even too crowded, the second night, all of the people gone.. Only one old grandpa there, he said he has lived in the hostel, he is nice but a bit weird and like to tell you what you should do or not to do...I didn't stay in a hostel to have someone preaching me. WiFi was poor.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This Hostel was well located, within working distance of all of the major attractions. Dianna in reception was very friendly and helpful. She explained to us how to catch a local bus to the next town to see the Animal Market. This is not to be missed. We left early at 5.50am and got there in plenty of time to see the real authentic action and were the only non-Ecuadorans that we could see. The Plaza of Ponchos and all of the markets were very overwhelming - too much to see. The room itself was spacious and comfortable. Great hot shower with excellent water pressure. The kitchen was well organised with plenty of equipment. The WiFi worked well, but it was best to move towards the central staircase to get the strongest signal. We were able to walk to the Bus Terminal and buy a return ticket for $2.50 per person - much cheaper than any package tour.
Cons: Nothing - we loved everything about this place! Would have liked to have spent more than 2 nights here.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location, comfortable bed and cozy room decor. Highly recommend this hostal for a one night stay or a week!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Jose and family were just so welcoming! The farm is extremely relaxing. The dogs are so loving. The other travelers were awesome. The location is beautiful. If you are looking for a rural farm stay with a local Quechua family where you cook your own meals and chill with fellow laid-back travelers, El Tio is awesome. If you are looking for a typical "hostel" experience, this is not the place for you!
Cons: Really cannot think of anything.
7.9 Good
Pros: Super stay close to nature which I recommend taking for a couple of days so to wind in properly and fully enjoy the experience. Being in the nature one cannot expect certain comforts and when I was there the place was full so i also needed some time to get used to living in a community field. Unfortunately I didn’t have much days but I fully enjoyed it and I will surely go back. The hosts are a gem

It’s off the beaten track and is peaceful and tranquil! Muchas gracias Tío!!! Perfect spot to stay if you’re on your way to Colombia or on your way into Ecuador, or just want to get away from it all.
Cons: Nothing! It was very dusty because you’re on the farm, but that’s what we expected.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful, large, historic property converted into a hotel with the owner still living on premises. Beds were comfy and layers of beautiful blankets to keep warm. Gardens and large patios to eat breakfast and relax on. Only a block from the main park, Parque Bolivar, and surrounded by shops and restaurants. 7 easy blocks to Plaza de Ponchos where the main market is located.
Cons: Didn't realize that cash was required at check-out, so had to run to ATM a block away for a withdrawal. Not sure if this was covered in booking.com details or not.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location in beautiful historic colonial building with lovely gardens. The staff was very accommodating allowing us to enjoy the comfortable common areas while waiting for our flight. It felt safe and secure. Beds had lots of blankets which was cozy on chilly nights.
7.9 Good
Pros: The location was very good, just a block or so from the main square. The rooms were very pleasant and the shower had lots of hot water. Breakfast was not included, but the breakfast restaurant had lots of affordable options. There is good security in that the door has to be buzzed open for leaving and returning, but this meant we were left on the street waiting to be buzzed in for several minutes sometimes.
Cons: Check-out was a bit opaque, as the desk agent added up our room and meal charges on a calculator and only showed us the final total, there was no detailed invoice provided. Also, even though the hotel takes cash only, the desk agent was unable to provide $7 in change when we were paying at check-out! If you only take cash, you should be able to provide at least a minimum of change.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a perfect stay, all of the People working here are super friendly! A special thanks to them for our fantastic stay! It is out of the center, but it is right next to the reserve with the waterfall and on the hill, a better place isn't possible! We walked to the center and it's a enjoyable 20minutes walk on an unused traintrack. The center is Nice but buzzy so we enjoyed nature here a lot more. Someone from te hostel recomended us to walk to 'el corazon de la montana', a beautiful walk upon the hill and back down, a few ours in the breathtaking scenery of mountains, villages and fields. We enjoyed the best Meals in the restaurant each night, tipical Ecuadorian Meals, cooked at high standards!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We stayed two nights in this wonderful hotel, beautifully located on a slope overlooking forested hills, and the city of Otavalo in the background. The hotel is beautifully designed in adobe style, with loads of nice details, and many levels. We stayed in a room with an additional sitting room opening up in the garden. The hotel was quite empty when we were there, and it was a very serene environment. The room was great, good hot water, WIFI in the restaurant area only but worked fine. Staff was very friendly. We had dinner there as well, Due to low season we had to order it in advance. The food was very good. We made a hike during the day, going to the Peguche cascades, Inca cave, then climbing up the hill to the Condor Park (great bird show at 11.30) and then we hiked through the fields to Otavalo (nice market but rest of the town was not very special) and walked back to Peguche (check out the old building with walls dating back to 1613 which used to be a textile work, where local people were forced to work). Overall it was about 15 km walk.
Cons: Nothing major. Only thing is that when you come with your car, be prepared for an extremely steep part of the road in order to reach the hotel. Better park your car just before the steep slope in the meadow used as camping site.

Cons: Having only one hairdryer in the whole hotel

Cons: My only criticism is that the water in the shower took a while to warm up - it eventually did.

Pros: The property was very clean, staff was very personable and spoke English which was so helpful. The location was also wonderful, out of town and quiet, and yet close to Otavalo, and catching a taxi (cheap) was no problem.

6.7 Good

Cons: Apart from the very bad first, the towels we got were old and the place smelled a bit weird.

Pros: This is really a great hotel - would highly recommend to fellow travelers. Very clean and comfortable, all furnishings of high quality and like new, good shower, comfortable bed, strong WiFi, just two blocks from the bus terminal, on a quiet street... and the breakfast was excellent, with fruits and juices right from the garden out back. Román is an excellent host - gracious and kind, knows the town and the area well, and makes sure that everything is OK for you throughout the visit.
