Stayed here 5 nights. We did not get the larger room that would have been better for a family but our room with 2 doubles worked fine. Rooms are a bit on the small side, but typical for Ecuador. Great service, clean rooms, modern enough furnishings. No issues. Owners are very nice and helpful. Free breakfast was excellent, with many... More

My family stayed here over Christmas 2013. We loved it. The owners are from Chicago and were friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was nice for the price and we could see a waterfall as we stepped out in front of the hotel. We had breakfast and lunch a few times at the hotel as well and all... More

Well this place is totally overpriced. The rooms (in the old AND new building) smell a lot humidity. It was so humid that we couldn't make a fire in the fireplace in our room. Too bad it was why our room cost us 5$ more. The bathroom was terrible. Sometimes boiling water, sometimes only cold water. The shower was not... More

I liked this place. You can see the waterfall from some rooms. From my window I saw it. The interior is decorated nicely - multiple paintings even in the rooms, and also in hallways. Good dinner, great breakfast. The bathroom in the room is somewhat okay. Well, I guess I compare it to hotels in US and Canada, which is... More

Beds very comfortable and room had a peaceful outlook onto a garden. Quiet at night- perfect! Delicious dinners- breakfast not bad either. Great part of town- near waterfalls and hotsprings and not on main street. Owner speaks English. I felt very welcome and comfortable- did not want to leave!

With some of the rooms having a view of the in town waterfall and other quietly located on an interior garden, the hotel is a nice place to rest up rather inexpensively. They have visa (pay pal) and waive the service charge if you stay 4 nights, Breakfasts are awesome with multiple choices and big portions. no charge for an... More

Posada del Arte is a nice place in a quiet street in Banios, although close to the centre of town. Rooms are pleasant, clean and well decorated, breakfast is outstanding, at least for Ecuadorian standards. In a few words: Posada is a long standing good place to stay in Banios. We found it quiet, relaxing and pleasant. Although to our... More

I only stayed in Baños for 3 days so I decided to chose a place very carefully. La Posada del Arte was the perfect choice. The accomodation was huge and very clean and from my room I had a view to a beautiful waterfall. The breakfast is incredibly good, specially the pancake! After doing a lot if sports having a... More

We had such a great time in Banos and during our stay at La Posada del Arte. This is such a comfortable and inviting hotel. It's in a great location near the waterfall and the hot mineral pools and yet just a short walk to anywhere in town you want to go. The colors and the artwork give the hotel... More

We spent 4 nights here in Banos and loved the place. We were in the Verde 2 room in the Blue House which was very spacious and colorful. The decor and artwork are colorful and fun, almost reminiscent of the 60s, but tropical. This guesthouse is a 5 minute walk to town, yet very quiet at night. Marshia and the... More
