This apartment was really pretty! The host, Monica is extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and modern. It was an easy walk for us to the market, restaurants and other sights. There is a small cafe downstairs which serves typical food at very reasonable prices (breakfast and lunch). We would highly recommend this place.

We enjoyed staying in Monica's place a lot. The apartment is spacious with lots of sunlight. The beds are extremely comfortable and do I need to say more about the steaming hot shower?! The location is great. Within a distance of 10-15 minutes walk, you will be in the center of the town where all the actions are happening. Monica's sister, who owns the restaurant downstairs, makes great soups and is very helpful giving advice as to where to go and what to do. The only thing we got caught off guard is the 5 dollars charge for using the washing machine, which is not specified or communicated throughout the course. We were asked to pay the morning when we were about to leave. Make sure to ask Monica for any additional fees of using the listed amenities. Overall, we had a fantastic time staying with Monica!

We loved this apartment. It was very clean, hot showers (which is a rare find in Ecuador). It was like being at home. We had 2 bedrooms with towels and clean sheets. Kitchen was nice and had the basic things needed such as blender, coffee maker plates etc. Monica and her family were very attentive. They are very happy to help you with whatever you need. Walking distance to Plaza de Ponchos ( 15 min). You can also catch a taxi at the corner for 1.50$ US money to just about anywhere in Otavalo. The supermarket is at the corner of Plaza de Ponchos. The bus terminal is also about a 20 minute walk. I would recommend getting a taxi to get there from the airport about 60$. It is about 1 hour and 45 min from the Quito International airport. We found a private safe driver that will take you just about anywhere in Ecuador that has a nice small suv. He charged us from Otavalo to Quito Airport 50$ His contact info is: Javier Mullo (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and he is early/ on time for every time we needed him. He drives tourists from all over the world. He does not speak english but if you write down where you need to go he will take you. Please call ahead at least 2 days to schedule your pick up. ( Please bring cash such as quarters and small US currency as most places a 20$ is a lot of money and sometimes they don't have change. Credit cards are not accepted as they are in the states, hard to come by in the smaller towns. Monica also has a nice restaurant on the ground floor that has delicious food at a very reasonable price. We walked at night back to her place from town and never felt in danger. I am bilingual so the language was not an issue for me. Monica does have kids that understand English and speak it. Monica also offers laundry service to wash your clothes. We did not use it as my daughter lives in Otavalo. But this is an option. We had a lovely stay and would return to this apartment again! I would highly recommend Monica's place!

We certainly hope to stay with Monica again. The apartment is modern, includes everything you need for a short holiday and was very clean. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed being able to walk to the markets in Otavalo. Monica and Tanya were very helpful with any questions we had and helped us out when we needed a taxi early Sunday morning. Highly recommend it!

This is an excellent apartment. Well positioned with a short walk to town. It is new and roomy. The washing machine and drying area an added bonus. Monica and her family are there to help in any way if you want. Value for money this place was exceptional. Thank you Monica, Tanya and family

We had 3 nights at Monica's. We arrived at night in the rain and the family drove us into town so that we could get something to eat which was lovely of them. We had a good very reasonably priced breakfast in the restaurant that the family own underneath the apartments. Whilst the apartment isn't in the most scenic part of town it only takes 10 minutes to walk to the centre or $1.5 in a taxi. The apartment is very well kitted out and comfortable.
