I have stayed here on several occassions, usually to break up the long bus trip from Cuenca to Quito. There are several types of rooms available. The room I had in the front of the hotel was terrible as the bathroom was tiny, the bed was warped/should have been replaced years ago and the noise from the street was non-stop... More

We arrived at 7am and the staffs are so kind as to let us in. We had to leave at 6am on the next day, and the staff kindly prepared good buffet breakfast at 5.30am though the normal hour is from 6am. They were not overly cordial, but actually very helpful when asked. In front of the train station =... More

We stayed here for 2 nights! They didn't clean our room after the first night which we didn't really like but wasn't a deal breaker for us!! But what drove us crazy was the noise!!! Ecuador is an extremely noisy Country but we had 2 rooms at the front of the hotel and it never got quiet and the windows... More

The good about the La Estacion hotel is its location, right behind the train station, but don't expect more, rooms are not so clean. Beds are acceptable but pillows are as hard as a rock. Bathrooms are small (am a petite person and I had a hard time to take a shower). The staff is rude and bring their children... More

This hotel is located right beside the train station not too far from the main attractions of Riobamba . The rooms are clean , small but not sound proof , we could ear the people talk from two floors below . The mattress in our bed was very soft while the pillow was as hard as wood . The hotel... More

The location of this hotel is ideal: Just off the main street where most of the touristy stores, restaurants and bars are located; overlooking the train station, easy taxi ride (or 15 minute walk) to bus terminal. The staff is friendly and helpful. The included breakfast is one of the most generous I've had in Ecuador (2 eggs, bread, butter,... More

I was in the hotel for a week and I must say I enjoy my time there. The setting is really nice, the staff is helpful and the owners of the place will invite you to feel at home. I got robbed during my stay in Riobamba and they helped me as much as they could. They can arrange trips... More

Pros: Breakfast buffet was good (incl great granola, 2 eggs and the basic bread, instant coffee/tea, not so great juice). Hotel is nicely decorated and has 2 computers. Each floor has a nice sitting area in the middle. Hotel had almost no guests so was super quiet. Very secure as they buzz you in and out. lots of tv stations... More

We stayed there for 2 nights, in general it was ok, average, cheap place to stay just for sleep. Service was their best attribute, even though rooms are a little bit narrow and the whole place is a little bit noisy -It think it's the hotel's arquitecture that allows that every noise can be heard-. Breakfast was good, they serve... More

This has to be one of the better hotels in Riobamaba for service, location and breakfast. I have stayed here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. When I read critical things about a restaurant or hotel on this site, it comes down to understanding the culture and to be patience. I read about the person paying... More
