The hotel is very nice decorated with art, and there are spacious public places to sit and chat while the fireplace glows. The rooms are very clean with a good bed and excellent shower. They also offer a very good diner and breakfast.

The hotel itself is very nice, very well designed, especially the common areas that are very cozy. The rooms are simple, yet very nice and comfortable. The breakfast could be more "rich", but dinners were really nice. BUT what is especially food here is to make the trip to see the Animal market and then visit local schools in the...

Going to stay at Inti Sisa in Guamote is more than simply going to a hotel or B&B; it means toucing upon the world of Ecuadorian highlands indigenous people in a responsible manner. At the same time, the hotel offers high quality bedrooms and excellent meals.

Was traveling alone but able to chat at meal times with various groups - most people ate there since few restaurants in the area. The Thursday market was fascinating and lasted...

First of all, this hotel is beautiful. The rooms are large and modern in a very traditional decor. The common spaces are decorated with handmade treasures from the area - they are also for sale!

Inti Sisa, which means sunfower, is run as a community project where profits go into the educational project. It is an absolutely delightful place to stay. The hotel / guesthouse has about 12 rooms, though this may have increased by now as there was a building project happening closeby. We stayed there for one night in May 2015 as part...
