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.

In my last trip to Ecuador, I could see several cities of this country, but I found a wonderful place for resting. Hotel Tren Dorado at Riobamba, Ecuador. A place of love and peace. I met their owners and employees and I know they are wonderful people dedicated to serve their clients. I recommend to anyone who may go to... More

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.

Next to the train station (unfortunately there are no trains at the moment leaving from riobamba and you have to go to Alausi) and at the edge of the city centre, the hotel has a nice familiar atmosphere. The rooms are clean, a bit old style but with a certain charm. They are large enough and with a decent bathroom... More

We loved the place. They made us feel like home in this cozy and clean hotel. The price is great because you get a nice room with a TV, wi-fi and a private bathroom. The hotel has a cool courtyard and relaxing rooftop that provides excellent views of Mt. Chimbarzo. The staff are very friendly and even did some laundry... More

I was happy with my stay at Hotel Tren Dorado. The lady who works there is very friendly and smiley which is always important for a pleasant experience. I thought the breakfast could be a tiny bit better but for the money you can't really complaint. Great value, nice tidy rooms, also felt very safe.

The hotel has decent rooms with a nice bathroom (if en-suite). The rooms are quiet (at least the internal ones) & there is a good supply of blankets. it is not spectacular, but it's perfectly decent & very clean. Excellent value for money if you want to be in the centre of Riobamba, near all the bars, restaurants & the... More

I gave this three stars mainly because it was so cheap, but that's its best quality. Apart from the price, there was little else to recommend it, as it was fairly a fairly glum and ugly place. Even my window looked out on to an inner wall, so I couldn't enjoy any views of local volcanoes, etc... I did sleep... More

If I'm rating this place out of all the hotels/hostels in Ecuador, it gets 2 stars. If I'm rating it by Riobamba's standards, probably 4. It's a perfectly adequate place to stay. Decent bed, hot water, large breakfasts, centrally located. And as other reviewers have mentioned, hilarious decor. Downsides: Despite the rooms being set back from the street, there was... More
