Located five minutes from the Basilica Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Agua Santa in the city of Baños province of Tungurahua, surrounded by unforgettable landscapes and below the majestic presence of our colossus Tungurahua Volcano.
There are many sweet hotel/hosterias in Banos... this one should be the last on your list.
I hired the guide for stops in Cotopaxi and Quilotoa (from Quito). HIs... read more jeep's driver window was busted and wouldn't go up (it's freezing in those locations with rain/sleet/snow), a tire that was perpetually going flat (needed to take time to find air), walked 100' in front of me on hikes disappearing on the trail, never truthfully contracted a daily rate, nearly had THREE head on collisions while driving TOO fast, passing on curves, driving in the gutter to pass lines of cars all the while yelling at me when I screamed in fear! It was a sad experience. Rent your own car! Forget this guide and his hotel!
It was my parents anniversary last month and they are in Ecuador. They told me they wanted to go to Baños, so as a gift, I got them a hotel... read more room. It took me a while to find a beautiful yet affordable hotel. I'm so happy that i found this place. I live in the US and even though, making the transaction was so easy thanks to the help of Susana. I told her that it was my parents anniversary, so I wanted them to feel comfortable and special. She gracefully offered to add wine and flowers in the room, at no extra cost! Right before my parents arrived to the hotel, Susana offered to write a note on my behalf for my parents. That was such an amazing idea and I am so grateful for the amazing service that I was given. I wasn't even staying in the hotel! So thankful for everything. My parents loved the hotel and their experience staying there. Thank you guys so so much! The experience that they had was beyond what I expected thanks to the amazing service provided. More
The place is showing wear and tear. But the staff is helpful, quick, and ready to extend. Breakfast was served is a prompt manner and eating area is very spacious.... read more There is also parking in front for our vehicle. They also provide laundry and massage service.
It is located in a walking distance of everything.
Very clean rooms and wonderful breakfasts. The day and evening reception folks were very attentive and lovely as were the room cleaning staff. Breakfasts were eggs, as you wish, platter... read more of bread/rolls, coffee or tea, fruit w yogurt, and juice- good start to any day. Beds comfy. Easy to walk to town, yet this is on the edge of town where it is much more clean and quiet--though on one night there were loud and inconsiderate (inebriated people) down in the street...who finally left after about 30 mins. Would stay again.
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.
Loved it here. Lots of hotels to choose from in Banos. This was on a quiet street close enough to walk everywhere in less than 10 minutes. The staff... read more are kind and helpful. Great breakfast daily. And the extra steam treatment included in the room price was a fun, relaxing bonus. Spotless clean and gorgeous garden. And beds were great too.
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.
After traveling for 35 years around the world, I found home in this hotel.Susy,Elena,Maricela, Pablo they been so nice to me. They treated me like family and the place is... read more very clean, the service was superior and definitely I recommend this place.
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.
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!!
