Spending a holiday weekend in Banos, Ecuador was really hectic until my friend and I left our first hostel and booked a room at Isla Banos. First of all,... read more it's a gorgeous location, surrounded by lush vegetation and situated next to a verdant hill. It's at the end of the city, so the noise and hubbub of the festivities were far away.
The staff is ever so welcoming and friendly. They speak English and Spanish.
The room was sunny and spacious, with two comfy twin beds and a sitting area, also a covered balcony and separate bath . Breakfast was a lovely combo of bread, cheese, fresh fruit and eggs.
Guests represented many countries, with several languages being spoken in the dining room.
The extra attraction is the spa, which I didn't get to experience, but which my friend raved about. There's also a wide range of tours and day trips in and around Banos, which the staff will organise for hotel guests. I can't think of anything more that a guest could require! It's a one stop paradise! More

Christian has truly made this a wonderful place for his visitors to relax and unwind. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Susy is there to offer hospitality with a smile and a delicious hot breakfast to order. Hope to return to enjoy again someday. Thank you!
We picked this place for its wonderful corner rooms with big windows and were not disappointed. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the staff were friendly. After having read reviews... read more about stolen valuables and money, I would like to add that we NEVER entrust anything into a hotel safe and only very occasionally leave the iPad or credit card in the room DEEP inside a LOCKED bag. It is not fair to tempt people.

The breakfast was amazing. The garden was beautiful, It no more 400 feet from the central of the city.It is very quiet.
The only thing about to complain...I need to leave tomorrow.
Great gardens. Good location, just a few blocks from the main plazas. Bugs in the skylight above the bed. There were several large windows and... read more the skylight that let sun in very early. The staff entrance was right behind our room (I). They were very noisy very early. We also booked messages which were in a room without curtains. The main masseuse swore that no one could see in the room. We discovered that we had a clear view of the message room from our balcony. The lavender towel treatment turned wet and cold very quickly. When we arrived the German owner was in the lobby reading the newspaper. I expected him to be much more friendly. He barely acknowledged our presence. He only slightly more communicative at breakfast the following morning. Very unlike most owner run hotels we've stayed at. Pluses: the room was large in a beautiful surrounding; and the toilet was the best we had since arriving in Ecuador two weeks before.
We had not normally used hostels but this was an excellent choice. Run by Christian, he is always there, it was everything needed for a short stay in Banos. Close... read more to centre, good breakfast and clean it tucked many boxes.
We spent 2 nights and thought this place was wonderful. Staff (Juan and Susie) we're so helpful and friendly. Room was large and clean with balcony and view of mountains.... read more Close to town but quiet at night. Highly recommend!!
Comfortable hotel surrounded by lots of green! It felt like our little jungle while walking around the hotel grounds. WiFi worked well, there was hotel water in the rooms and... read more both our rooms had beautiful balconies overlooking the city. I was hesitant leaving our balcony door open too much for fear of bugs but was pleasantly surprised by the lack of bugs. There is a local school near the hotel which made lots of noise and announcements in the morning. Walking distance to really everything you need in town. The workers were so nice and the breakfast was great as well.

It is located in a walking distance of everything.
