I've never given a bad review on here, but I think irresponsible treatment of guests is definitely something that merits one. I stayed in this hotel several times, years ago--it's basic, clean and has a decent breakfast. However, I will never again recommend it after this: A few months ago, I made a reservation by phone and was assured a... More

Cheap and very central. Hotel Tren Dorado - or Golden Train is easily spotted by the model train above the entrance. It is located on the main street through Riobamba and less than ten minute walk from the train station. The hotel decor is rather quirky, with slightly kitsch bed covers and wall hangings. There is a nice open central... More

Our room, Guano, was comfortable, clean and quiet. Towels were changed every day and the toilet bin also emptied daily. While the room was showing its age a little, the bathroom was newly refurbished with reliable hot water. The staff, however, were not as welcoming as in other places we have stayed in Ecuador, and the fees we were charged... More

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..
