Property Information:

Doa Esther is a colonial styled small hotel 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 12 rustic decorated rooms with private bathrooms and of course plenty of hot water. We also have a small apartment on top of the hotel, fit for 2 adults with or without small children. 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. Children under 10 stay for free in their parents room. We can arrange transport to and from the airport at every hour, or arrange transport for some tours in the area.

Our attached Restaurant rbol 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 small hotel.

    The staff was excellent. They were friendly helpful, friendly, and tolerant of my very limited Spanish. The room was clean. When the hot water was available, it was good but I ended up taking a cold shower on one day of my stay. The room was noisy. I could hear other guests coughing and talking through the walls. You could not avoid hearing barking dogs all night and there was a rooster that started crowing about 0400 and continued for several hours. Restaurant was expensive, nothing special.
