Once again, it was a very small room. But it was very quiet and the bed was OK for a short stay. Breakfast didn't happen, as appears common judging from other reviews, but my rate was adjusted properly with no argument. As a matter of fact she adjusted it herself before any question was raised. Very nice location near a... More

Our night at the hotel was good, we could rest enough. we got the hotel for a good price, it is at the midtown of Riobamba, so is near to get any place to visit in the city. The hotel is simple but it is ok, just the bathroom was small. good for the price.

The rooms are clean and there is a little courtyard, but the people are acting very strange. For example, the lady at the reception told us the price includes breakfast. The next day suddenly it wasn´t included any more. I am pretty sure I didn´t missunderstand - especially since I have read the same story on tripadvisor afterwards. Another weird... More

A good budget option. It doesn't win a price for its charme and the breakfast leaves room for improvement, but the rooms are clean and spacious and the amenities are proper. It exceeds what you normally get for the price. Ask for the quiet rooms in the back of the house.

When we arrived, we were told that our room was not ready (it was 4 in the afternoon, though) and were finally given another room. There was work going on in the hotel, so a lot of dust was flying, covering the bathroom (the window was partly broken). We had to ask twice for the bathroom to be dusted. Plus... More

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.
