The hotel is located very close to the train station. The owner is very helpful and friendly. Else the place would benefit form some renovation. Specially the breakfast area is dull and messy. We paid 48$ for 3 which is about OK.

I've traveled to Ecuador numerous times over the pat 5 years and have always stayed at this wonderful hotel. Over the years we've become close friends with the owner - we're almost family. The staff is friendly and efficient and the hotel is clean, cozy and centrally located. You can walk to most areas of the town and only 1/2... More

Stayed here on Saturday night as a way to stay close to Chimborazo/Lagunas de Atillo area. Only $16 per person with breakfast included, clean, quiet, friendly staff. The only problems were the yucky smell coming out of the drains in the bathroom and the beachball-like pillows, ha. But other than that, a solid place to stay, especially if you want... More

Hotel Tren Dorado is a very basic place with few amenities, but this is reflected in the rather lowish price. However the one night I stayed here there were no major problems and I slept okay, so overall I have no complaints.

This hotel is quiet, cosy, and extremely well kept. The location is also perfect for buying those Nariz del Diablo train tickets and going out for a meal or drink. The room was warm even though it was quite chilly outside. The breakfast is also delicious and wholesome and the staff are super friendly and helpful. The shower was also... More

This hotel is quite nice, but I didn't like Riobamba itself.. The hotel is a safe choice with really good extensive breakfast and a central location! We have just visited to have a break between Latacunga and Cuenca and it suits well for a good night sleep, but next time I would definitely skip Riobamba, it's ugly..

Had 2 nights here on my first visit to Riobamba whilst organizing climbing. It's a friendly place with good service at a good price. Breakfast was fine if not exciting and the rooms are comfortable enough. Hot water seemed a little hit and miss but other than that fine.

Good place for a stay in Riobamba. Close to the train station ... But no train is leaving from their this year ! They are working on the track ! you have to go to Alausi ! Maybe plan not to go in Riobamba until the train is ready or pass by Alausi instead. Room are small, tidy and cosy.
