Unfortunately we didn't have a reservation of a hotel in Baños when we arrived saturday 28.12. at 5 o'clock in the morning and there were no taxis to bring us somewhere, so we choosed the hotel El Belen. The owner charged us 60 dollars for a simple and little room with a "matrimonial" bed. No view or other "special features" which would have justified such a high price. We asked for the gimnasio and the jacuzzi which both were out of orther (she forgot to mention it on their web-site). After a long discussion, the owner gave us 20 dollars back, so we paied 40 dollers for one night in hotel without any special service. Even this is too much!
