Hotels in Guamote

Hotels in Guamote

Below you will find 2 hotels in Guamote (Inti Sisa and Chuza Longa), one in Alausi (La Quinta) and one in Ingapirca. We have grouped them because these three towns are not far from each other and therefore overlap. And you can also visit Guamote from Riobamba: look at the hotels in Riobamba.
In Guamote, Inti Sisa is “the place to be”. Chuza Longa is usually visited when Inti Sisa is full (that happens on Wednesday evenings because on Thursday morning the well-known indigenous market attracts a lot of people).
La Quinta is reserved if you want to take the train “Nariz del Diablo”. Since the end of 2020, however, the entire tourist train activity has been stopped – including the popular Nariz del Diablo. It still remains to be seen whether these programs will be restarted.

Inti Sisa

Guamote is a small mountain village known for its indigenous people and traditions. As part of an integral development project, Inti Sisa offers 23 beautiful guest rooms here. All rooms have private bathrooms. In addition, you can also enjoy good food in the guesthouse. The project provides support to the local residents of Guamote. On Thursday morning you step out the door and end up in the most beautiful indigenous market in Ecuador. The project is run by a few Flemish volunteers.

La Quinta

This beautiful hotel is housed in a restored wine estate. The domain is cultural heritage of the city of Alausi. You will find yourself here in a beautiful setting, near the railway station of Alausi. The hotel has about 7 standard rooms and one suite. In the restaurant you can have a nice meal and after the meal you can go to the bar for a drink.
After a long closure due to Covid and also caused by the cancellation of the Nariz del Diablo train route, the hotel reopened in early 2023.
