Otavalo hotels offer a richness in both variety and numbers, and with good reason. As it offers some of the most spectacular indigenous tribal handicrafts you could wish to find in Ecuador, Otavalo is one place that usually finds itself on every tourists' itinerary of things to do while in Ecuador.
One of the most famous places to stay in Otavalo is the Casa Mojanda Inn and Farm. This Farm and Inn has a number of magnificent activities to occupy your time spent here; including horseback riding trekking, mountain biking, or even just walking along one of the many trails around this area of natural beauty and splendor.
Another very well known Otavalo hotel is the Hosteria Hacienda Pinsaqui, located on the PanAmer highway.. This fabulous hotel is a renovated colonial building - and it'll certainly provide you with a superb night's sleep.
With its magnificent colonial architecture, Otavalo also has a number of converted haciendas that you can choose to stay at. Although these are normally more expensive places to stay at than your run-of-the-mill Otavalo hotels and hostels, the beautiful architecture and spectacular scenery certainly make a night's stay here worth the money.
Of course, having said this, Otavalo is famous for its traditional markets, so if you would rather be saving your money, so that you can spend it at the famous market, why not consider one of the cheap Otavalo hotels, guest houses and hostels that Otavalo also offers travelers to the town. The option to stay at one of the guest-houses in the center of town will provide you with very similar accommodation to that found all over the country, indeed the continent, which is a cross between a private house and a hotel, but not quiet a youth hostel. In fact, this type of facility is the same as those popular in Europe, and known by the name: "bed & breakfast". Overall though, the aim of Otavalo's guesthouses is to provide you with a place to sleep, usually in a room with on-suite bathroom, without the need to incur large hotel bills. They are also normally family-run affairs.
Two of the most popular hostels in Otavalo include the Jatun Pacha Hotel, a family hostel which provides double, tipple and dormitory rooms, some with private bathrooms - all with hot water; and the Hostal Dona Esther, a colonial style small hostel, which includes the well-known Restaurant II de Roma.
So, whether you'd like to save your money to spend it in the market, or live it up in one of the grand hotels, Otavalo hotels, budget hotels, and hostels, are available for all types of travelers!
