I worked in Ecuador years ago and have been back often to visit. We used to stay at resorts that catered to locals at bargain prices. But with Ecuador's conversion to the US dollar, they have raised their prices to first-world levels geared to foreign tourists, defeating the purpose for us of vacationing in the third world. My cousin had...

This review is more about the restaurant, the Waterfall, which is not listed in TripAdvisor. I did not stay at the hotel, but was surprised at the contrast of modern glass front, and traditional rooms with courtyard inside. Clearly popular with tours as I fought my way up the stairs. I was the first in for lunch service and as...

A bit more than we are used to spending in Ecuador so far, but well worth the money if you consider the location, the quality of the room and the helpful staff. Clean, comfortable and quiet are three words that describe this hotel. The restaurant has ok food for supper but the included breakfast was very good and plentiful. They...

We find a nice room for 4 people to stay the night, without reservation needed, also there's a place to play pool and it's in the Main Street so you can't get lost, there's free wifi, the room has a nice decoration with the towels and some snacks and drinks, tv cable and a small lobby to chat with friends

We fancied chicken as many places in town do Chicken and decided to stop here after visiting the market. The place is basic but for 2 people, we paid 13.50USD for two big plates of chicken with rice/salad/potatoes etc and a large bottle of (warm) coke. We didnt think this was too bad and the food was pretty good.

We went with other friends and it was a good place to sleep, good service, clean rooms and prices are affordable, too bad we stayed only 1 night so we didnt have enough time to spend around the hotel.

Good place to spend time in Otavalo. Located downtown, close to places you can walk around. They take your car to the parking lot so you can just enter the hotel. Service is very good. They always ask if everything was ok. The best choice in Otavalo if you want to spend a day.

Just back from Ecuador. Arrived Friday afternoon in Otavalo ahead of Saturday market. Hotel Indio Inn is well-situated for walking around. Not to be confused with Hotel Indio (or was it Hostal Indio?); that one is right on the plaza for the handicraft market -- which is an advantage if you want to duck in and out of the market;...

On our way through the Otavalo Market, we crashed for lack of breakfast and lucked into the unpretentious, clean restaurant attached to the Hotel El Indio Inn, which featured authentic Indio food. We slid gratefully into a booth and ordered churrasco and our own favorite tea. Delish protein to start the day. Would come back anytime.
