The el Belen hotel is comfy and convenient. The owners are friendly and the location is ideal- steps from the bus stop and from the town center. They have a kitchen that guests can use so if you do not want to spend all your money on eating out- you can cook! Highly recommended!

Rosa Maria was extremely helpful to us during a very busy holiday weekend. We appreciate her help immensely and would recommend anyone looking to stay at a place run by excellent people stay at the Hotel el Belen.

I spent a week in Banos in September 2014 and I stayed at the Hotel el Belen. My room was very clean and comfortable, although I have to say it was a bit hot during the day and evening. The window was just small and I couldn't get much of a breeze. The bath is very nice, plenty of hot... More

Since there was 5 in our room, we were placed in a small room overlooking the courtyard, and didn't enjoy the view from the courtyard rooms, so I would suggest either separate rooms so that you can enjoy the flowers, etc. Besides that, the motel was very accommodating. Very hot water, beds comfortable. Decent price as well. A beautiful area!

Banos might be low in altitude, but the chilled temperature and misty drizzle that met us on our arrival in July made it feel like we’d reached a hill station in the likes of India. But, duck into the small courtyard of Hotel El Belen – a prime spot in the heart of town – and the community’s warm, friendly... More

The owners were extremely accommodating and pleasant. Cant beat the location. This is a clean, budget room with a short walk to shops and some very good restaurants . The Hotel arranged a great tour for all of us.. Super Value for the Money... I highly recommend it.

It was affordable and it was a clean place. It was very pretty with all the plants. I liked its location because it was close to many things. The staff was all very nice and helpful. The room was spacious and overall great.

After so many hostals this place felt like the Ritz! Simple hotel, sufficiently clean and very affordable. The owner gave us a choice between two rooms that cost the same and if you can, ask for the room with the renewed bathroom that is also much bigger in size. The only downside for us was trying to find the owner... More

Although the place does not look like much it is clean and the staff are friendly. We originally booked one night and stayed for three, with the additional nights at the same bargain price as the first. El Belen has a good location, a few blocks from the bus station, in the heart of Banos. The original room had a... More

Unfortunately we didn't have a reservation of a hotel in Baños when we arrived saturday 28.12. at 5 o'clock in the morning and there were no taxis to bring us somewhere, so we choosed the hotel El Belen. The owner charged us 60 dollars for a simple and little room with a "matrimonial" bed. No view or other "special features"... More
