A colonial hotel in the heart of Otavalo
Travelling through Ecuador you really should visit the small Andean town of Otavalo in the northern part of the country. Not only for its world–famous market, that occupies the center of town on Saturdays (well, actually, every day, but on Saturdays it’s large), but also for its colourful culture, its friendly people, its relaxed ambience and the many attractions that hide in the beautiful green province of Imbabura.
The area will impress you with its majestic mountains, its many lakes, fascinating villages and towns where you can buy artefacts directly from the producers.
A nice and comfortable base to visit these attractions is the Dutch owned Hotel Doña Esther, perfectly located in the center of town, near the central park - Parque Bolívar - and very close to the market and the new train station.
Doña Esther has a unique ambience with only 12 wooden floor rooms and a small apartment on top, all located around the green inner–courtyard. All rooms have their own private bathroom.
In our restaurant Árbol de Montalvo we serve imaginative international food, making use of herbs and spices and local flavors.
