Chilcabamba is located in the northern side of the Cotopaxi National Park. The beds were very comfortable and warm even though the temperature was freezing outside. Our room had a little chimney and living room, very nice. There was plenty of hot water, which is wonderful for cold weather. Our breakfast was pretty good and they give you plenty of...

Chilcabamba was a magical little discovery. Tucked away at the end of a long cobbled road it was a wonderful surprise. It's thatched roofed buildings and wood stoves gave it a very cozy feel while the finishing touches made it feel very comfortable yet still rustic. It's views of Cotopaxi can't be beat and it's only a 15 minutes drive...

Chilcabamba lodge is a wonderful lodge, near situated to the Cotopaxi national park. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Jose is an excellent cook, he and his staff are very friendly. We enjoyed the five nights at Chilcabamba very much.

Rustic, but well looked after (clean and accommodating), and in a great location. Jose was very helpful - setting up horseback rides, making recommendations, etc. Place was great. I'll book it again if I'm fortunate enough to be in the area. Also great value for money (as far as room prices), though maybe not so much the case for dinner....

This is a very remote little lodge up in the mountains. Therefore I think you need a car to get there. Very quiet location, can be very chilly - but rooms get very cosy with the woodburners. We were the only guests when we stayed - service was friendly and helpful - but do remember to tell them if you...

This is very nice, cozy place but not a luxurious one. It is clean and comfortable. Very friendly manger and staff. Food is great. Setting and surrounding is breath taking. It is an excellent choice if you are traveling on budget. They have a few suit style rooms that are very good/.

Hospitality was great! The views of Cotopaxi and Pasochoa were amazingly beautiful and the food was great as well. Nearby hikes are fun. The rooms are rustic and warm. It is a great place to relax with friends or family and take in the beauty in the environment around you.

It was a very nice and short stay at the Chilcabamba, Went there with my family and dont regret it. The food prepared by the Chef was very good. Also we took the opportunity to do some trekking, with a nice view to the surrounding mountains, especially of Cotopaxi, which could be seen from the common area.
