We've been there with my familly for a night and we all loved it. The owners, Bettina and Darwin, are welcoming and offered us a fresh juice at our arrival. The rooms are clean and confortable, the food is homemade and good (we had dinner + breakfast there). It is worth climbing up there ! Vanessa, Richard and french/equatorian familly

We had been staying in Banos and decided to take the day trip to Casa Del Arbor (treehouse). The bus ride took about 30 minutes to reach the summit and the treehouse. It was crowded, the lines were long and the view was clouded over. Epic fail as the kids would say. We decided to hike back down to Banos....

We did not stay here (as we came upon it by chance) but we stopped for a drink and ice cream on the steep walk to the Mirador de la Virgen. Bettina (Swiss) was very welcoming and we enjoyed talking to her. We were shown the rooms; they looked great but we can't comment further. We sat in the sunshine...

We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it . The owners are welcoming and carrying , but also give you the privacy you want . It's a a little bit walk to get up there , but it's worth it AND you get fresh squeezed juice when you arrive . If you want to party, maybe stay in...

Initially, my girlfriend wasn't very pleased with me as we had to walk up the hillside but eventually liked the place for what it was. The Casa Amarilla guesthouse is located on the hillside just above Banos and the big advantage you have with staying in this place is that it's quiet away from the street noises, you have a...

Left here feeling as though I had friends I could visit here in Banos as opposed to just another hotel to stay at. Great service, good rates and an amazing view! Accommodations are not as modern as your typical hotel but are amazing considering you are half way up a mountainside. They even have free WiFi! The walk up the...

If you are up to a 15 minute hike up the hill you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of Banos lights. The owners treated us like family and were very accommodating. They had a nice menu and one night after we ordered , Fredy disappeared....he had gone to town to get a missing ingredient!

We booked La Casa Amarilla when we arrived in Baños, although we could have read the fine print better. As we started to make our way up to the home, we were unsure how far up we needed to hike (about 20 minutes) and had to ask some locals for directions. The gardener ended up helping us find the place,...

We stayed here for 2 nights. My husband was skeptical at first because from the town it looks really far up but once we got there he was quickly won over by the cozy room and the views.
