First the positive. The common areas were very lovely, beautiful garden with outdoor table and fireplace. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful with real coffee. However, there was no great support of the guests in terms of helping you to figure out what there is to do in Baños. The owner is distant and the person in charge is very...

Enjoyable stay in a hostel on the end of a quiet street...mostly. As other reviewers mentioned, you may be awakened by the early morning serenade of school children. We actually didn't mind it and thought it was interesting to hear the children singing. The grounds are beautiful and it's an easy walk to the main streets of the city. The...

The hotel/hostel (it's something in between) is nice but very expensive for what you get. The most disturbing thing in this property was the unfriendliness of its staff, the receptionist didn't even smile when we told it was our honeymoon and the highlight was when we asked for an extra towel and were refused (!!!), being told "one towel per...

Really nice hotel, good furnishing, staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke very good English. Large breakfasts of fruit, yoghurt, excellent bread ham and cheese. Only downsides are rooms can transmit a little noise depending on your neighbours and wi-fi varies between rooms, mine was unreliable but others in the group had no issues

I was planning to stay here for just one night, but I ended up staying for three nights. The hotel was really nice and the staff was very friendly. The place was beautiful and the prices for the rooms were really good! The German manager was awesome and he even gave me a lift to Ambato when I left. I...

The hotel is nice and well maintained. The staff members are kind and efficient, same as the owner who is usually around. The rooms are clean, spacious with some furniture to make a confortable stay, and the bed and pillows are great. Hot water, WiFi and good breakfast are part of the deal, so you'll get a good value for...

Our room was big, with large windows and a little balcony. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Staff was super friendly. Spa was lovely. All stuff you've read already. Here's the reason you should stay here: we handed our dirty laundry to the staff upon our arrival. Next morning, we realized we'd left cash in a pocket and mentioned it to...

I stayed here not long after being in the Amazon for a week. The location is great, the food/ breakfast is perfect. I genuinely spent the whole time wondering what the catch was going to be! Comfy bed, hot shower, quiet, nice owners, great location... Bien.

We visited in July 2015, the place is very nice and the room are large and confortable beds, they included breakfast and it was good food. I liked the decor and you can walk to the main market streets. The service was friendly. We would come back.
