The hotel is nicely located; far from the madding crowd but also close enough to everything that is happening out there: the plaza, the walking streets, the restaurants and bars, etc. The rooms were comfortable enough and reasonably priced. The staff were kind and helpful. The only thing is that we wish they had taken a better care of the... More

I ran into this hostal, while searching for their famous fondue. It is located in a very key area in Baños. Walking distance to everything but aside from public areas. it has a lot of vegetation so it makes you believe that you are not in the city. Rooms are not luxurious but remind you of a wooden cabin. Would... More

The hotel was OK, for the price, $14 per person, it is better than other in Baños. We had a room with fireplace and it was really warm at night (they will charge $2 for every "load" of wood for the fireplace). The person responsible for the hotel during the day was very kind and helpful. You cannot demand much... More

Modest hotel, friendly and helpfull staff. They helped us since the night we arrived to the morning we left. They carry our luggage from our car to the room and viceversa. Food was good. Definetely will go back to this hotel on my next visit to Baños!

The hotel was quite comfortable, maybe a bit on the cool side, but we were well taken care of. It is located near many nice squares with pleanty to see and do in town. We did not take in the hot springs, some of which are a few miles away to the west of Banos, but this would be true... More

La Petite is fully equipped with beautiful gardens, a welcoming fireplace, and comfortable rooms. The staff is generally friendly and the rooms are of good quality for the price. The location is very central as well. Overall, the petite is a fine hotel and I can't say I've had the misfortune of having anything stolen while staying there.

We were in Room 5, the front door of which is directly adjacent to the front desk and not more than two meters away. There is NO WAY anyone could enter this room without being seen from the desk, which is occupied 24/7. We went to dinner in the hotel restaurant (mediocre food, surly waiter), and returned to the room... More

Le Petit Auberge is the first time in Ecuador where I sprung for the cheapest option in town with a longer stay and was more than pleasantly surprised at the quality of the place. The hotel has a cozy common area with fireplace and a huge, lush garden with hammocks. A handful of the rooms (including mine, the cheapest single... More

My room at least was old, which I usually like the character of, but had a dank mold smell to it. If you're sensitive to that, which I'm not, check the room out first. Otherwise, you can do better for the price elsewhere.

The rooms were dark and dingy and smelled really musty. I checked out after one night - would not stay here again. But the common area was lovely! Also, its right next to a disco tech so sleeping before 2 am was out of the question for me.
