About Hostal Doña Esther

Our colonial styled Dona Esther (say: Donja) is located in the center of Otavalo, very near to the famous Saturday Market. The hotel has 12 comfortable, rustic decorated rooms and 1 rooftop apartment, suitable for 2 persons or a family with small children. All rooms have a private bathroom and all are looking out on the lovely inner courtyard. Our local staff offers an excellent service and you will certainly feel at home.
We can arrange transportation to and from the Quito airport, as well as a driver for some tours in the area.
Children under 10 stay for free in their parents’ room. Please contact us!
Free WiFi for guests is available.

Please note that an Ecuadorian hostal is not necessarily like a hostel. Ours is more like a small hotel.

In our restaurant Arbol de Montalvo we always try to make inventive, internationally inspired dishes, making use of the many products Ecuador has to offer. Our pizzas made in a wood burning oven are famous, often reviewed as the best in town. Come to judge for yourself! Opened Tuesday-Thursday from 6 pm, Friday-Sunday all day. Breakfast every day.
