We came across this property quite by accident; looking for a halfway point between Cuenca and Quito. We had driven the stretch before, and were looking to stay out of Riobamba traffic; this seemed like a reasonable choice 20 km. north of town. What a find! When we walked down the deck toward the check in area, we looked to... More

This hotel was originally a true hacienda, so it's an adventure just getting from one area to another. Beautiful antiques throughout. Rose petals on the bed. Large bedroom. Bath very out doorsy, done in stone - but a bit small. Don't miss the knock for good night chocolate (we did). Beautiful grounds - sheep and bunnies grazing. It's a bit... More

The hotel feels like it's been trapped in a time loop. The grounds are a bit confusing, but the grounds are beautiful. There are sheep and bunnies roaming the property. The staff is nice, but the old fashioned uniforms seemed incredibly out of place. The doors are traditional lock and key (one key per room) and there is not a... More

Wow, wow and wow! This place exceeded my expectations! We had tickets for the "Devil's Nose" train and decided to drive to Riobamba the night before. We made last minute reservations in Hosteria La Andaluza. We arrived around 8pm at night when all the lights were dimmed making this place look more magical! Every single room and hallway were full... More

We love to travel, at LaDistribuzione, to find hidden places through the country. We were coming from our FoodArt for FoodLovers fair from Quito. Riobamba is right in the middle of the Andes mountains, beautiful sight scene of green mountains almost untouched fields at 3500 meters above sea level. We arrived at 7pm to stay in La Andaluza ....beautiful and... More

We went there for my wife´s birthday. I email them before going requesting a nice room since it was a especial occasion. The bus from Quito will stop at their door so you don't have to walk at all. Our experience was great from the moment we entered. The man in charge at the reception was great. The biggest surprise... More

Building is great lots of antiques, old world charm. The garden full of flowers was incredible. Staff is very good with great service. Rooms were very spacious and quaint. Rose petals on the bed when we arrived. Nice touch. Food was terrific and entertainment for dinner. Two musicians playing local music, they have a DVD for sale, very nice. Loved... More

This is a beautiful place! A centennial hacienda, filled with history, artifacts, like sleeping in a Colonial living museum. The service is fantastic, the food is not expensive and great quality (get the "lomo a la piedra", with fireworks and everything) Riobamba is cold but each room has a heater and plenty of extra sheets. Didn`t like the bathroom, it... More

Old world charm, style, class and fantastic service. All of the above at La Andaluza. A must stay at if travelling the Andes is Ecuador. Dining room is so elegant and service impeccable and classy and the prices are very reasonable. Fantastic breakfast buffet, great beds beautifully done rooms, A charmer without a doubt.

This place is beautiful and charming. The service was excellent and the atention 5 starts. They welcome you with a local beverage and the warming of the fireplace. The hotel is beautifully decorated and comfortable. The food was delicious. Thanks to Chef Ernesto F. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone. Its view is stunning. San Juan, Puerto Rico.
