I stayed three nights here and was absolutely charmed. The inn itself is lovely. I stayed in the twin room, which has a couch to relax on as well. The other rooms looked quite nice, you can't really go wrong as there are only 4 rooms (I think). The grounds are gorgeous, with views of the mountains in all directions....

Set a little outside the main town, Oro Azul has great views over the countryside. The hosteria itself is well appointed with great attention to detail. It's an easy and pretty walk into town, but a little tricky to find your back, but taxis were cheap and plentiful. The service was good and there was always someone around when we...

Marcelo is a gracious host, with vast knowledge of Cotocatchi and the surrounding area. The hotel is a refurbished country home, small, and charming. Breakfast was tasty, especially the hearty brown bread baked fresh and delivered twice a week. Our room was the twin, which has a great view. The water pressure in the shower is not great, but gets...

We stayed at Oro Azul for three full days. It was a great experience. The owner provides guests with personalized service. The room we got was really comfortable, not the small type but really spacious and attractive. The facilities are exactly what you need to get away and take a break from hectic city life. Overall, I strongly recommend this...

Hosteria Oro Azul is very prettily located between two active volcanoes, and the views are simply stunning. The building itself is a beautifully renovated farmhouse, and the room was very nice.. The crater lake Cuicocha is very close and it's a worthwhile place to visit, and there are plenty of sites around Otavalo, which is just a short bus ride...

I stumbled upon this Hotel as a friend of mine was talking about Cotacachi. He told me that I should spend the night in the Hosteria Oro Azul and that I wouldn't regret it. How right he was! The host is a very gentle caring man that knows pretty much everything about Cotacachi and it's surroundings. The room are nothing...

I had a great time at this place. Set in the midst of a breathtaking landscape, the hosteria is perfectly located outside of Cotacachi, about 10-15 min walking distance from the middle of town. The Hosteria is well kept and the guest rooms are very comfortable. The host, Marcelo, is very personable, an awesome cook, and I really appreciated him...
