    Lonely Planet review

    This small, Dutch-owned colonial-style hotel is cozy, with attractive rooms surrounding a courtyard ornamented with ceramics and ferns. The service is personable; there’s a popular book exchange and a recommended restaurant.

    Our independent authors have visited Hostal Doña Esther and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in Otavalo.

    Description provided by property

    Dona Esther is a colonial styled small guesthouse in the center of Otavalo, very close to the famous Saturday crafts market and all other points of interest, including the new train station for touristic rides to Ibarra and Salinas.

    We offer 13 rustic decorated rooms with private bathrooms and of course plenty of hot water, between singles, doubles, a triple and a cuadruple room, which is actually a small apartment. All the rooms are located around an inner courtyard filled with plants. Free WiFi available for guests. We don't have TV in the rooms. We can arrange transport to and from the airport at every hour, or arrange transport for some tours in the area.

    Our attached Restaurant Arbol de Montalvo offers Mediterranean food, sometimes with a surprising Ecuadorian touch, as well as some typical Ecuadorian dishes. We also serve excellent pizzas baked in a traditional wood-burning oven. We use organic vegetables and purified water. Monday evening closed. Open for breakfast every day.

    Please note that a 'hostal' in Ecuador doesn't necessarily mean the same as the English 'hostel'. Ours is more like a Bed & Breakfast.
