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

Our room was comfortable but small. The courtyard is also the parking area, so there was some noise from cars coming and going. The gates are locked at night so we felt safe, and they were prompt to unlock them when we returned to the hotel after dinner.They arranged a couple of trips for us and ensured that arrangements were...

My mother and I stayed at Hotel Belen for two days. The room was clean. The couple running the place were extremely helpful and friendly. Located in the center of town the hotel is convenient to everything in Banos.

I stayed one night at this hotel with a friend during out visit to Banos. It was a great hotel and well worth the price. It's located very near the bus terminal and the main attractions in town. I enjoyed the beauty of the inner courtyard with all the potted flowers and bright colours. The staff were super friendly and... More

Enjoyed our stay very much. Room was bright and very clean. Newer bathroom with hot water. Very accommodating owners and staff was friendly. The day we left the volcano errupted which was straight up outside the front door. Very exciting. Of course the volcano was at least 2 miles up. I loved the courtyard and all the flowers.
