We stayed 4 nights at the Magic Stone and we felt like being at home. Aase and Ove did everything for us, we talked a lot about travelling and they gave us tips what to do during our stay. The breakfast was the best we had after 7 month of travelling!!! I wish to meet such nice people more often!!!... More

The rooms are much better than what they seem, which is great!!! The room we had had two beds and it was very very comfortable. For 50 dollars approximately you'll have your room in one of the best places in banos. You'll have a quiet, pleasant stay that will make you feel at home. You'll can walk few blocks to... More

It is such a delight to encounter a gem of a Danish place in the heart of Banos.. the hosts have created a wonderful, comfortable, functional, and high standard accommodation. I love the small Danish details from the bed to the fixtures in the bathroom. The location is actually an advantage since it is quiet and away from the craziness... More

In my opinion,others reviewing this lovely spot have said it so well that all I can do is say that I totally agree. All I can add is my favorite three really outstanding things about this place: 1. the graciousness of Aase and Ove as host and hostess, their helpfulness, knowledge of the area and sincere warmth of personality. ....

As with all the other reviews, Ove and Aase are the consummate hosts. Their location is perfect. On the edge of the town but still within five minutes walking distance of the city centre. I could have easily stayed a couple weeks enjoying their wonderful Danish breakfasts. Both Ove and Aase have lived in the area for years and have... More

we can only add another five stars for Ove and Aase. As everybody else we felt blessed to be able to stay with those friendly people. We spent four nights there in november 2013: three nights in the red, one in the blue room, both are beautiful, clean and quiet as the place is a little off the center up... More

Just a short walk from town, the magic stone B&B provides a restful and relaxing stay in Banos. The lovely hosts Ove and Aase are welcoming and make you feel at home. I appreciated the recommendations they provided for exploring the town - when we indicated we were going to cycle la Ruta de las Cascadas, they were able to... More

Magic Stone is perfectly located just on the outskirts of Banos Central and a short walk into town. Owned by a wonderful Danish couple, Ove and Aase - they put a stamp on excellent hospitality and an amazing peaceful experience. Offered great choices on restaurants and things to do, such as an off the beaten path Thermal Springs. I have... More

It was a real treat for us to stay here a couple of nights. We so enjoyed having such a pleasant, high quality place to go back to after hikes or a banos/piscine visit. We tried the three main public hot spring centers – two are within walking distance, and the third is a short taxi ride, Ove and Aase... More

Or, even if you hadn't planned on visiting Banos, just get online and make your reservation now. Because you would be missing one of the best guesthouse experiences going-anywhere!
