We stayed 4 nights, Dec. 31 to Jan 4. Our room was clean and comfortable, with views of the waterfall. The place is so cozy, especially the living room with the fireplace on. Friendly owners and staff, huge breakfasts (try their hot chocolate), and excellent value for money made our stay a 10 out of 10 experience.

Marsha and Jim have created a great atmosphere. Just prior to my friends wedding we got a room at Posada for the groomsmen to get ready. The wedding itself was happening at another location but Posada was great and let us leave are things there until we came back after the wedding for the rest of our stay. There morning... More

While La Posada del Arte does have art all over the walls, don't miss the archaeological display of indigenous Ecuadorian cultures, mostly pre-Inca statues, stone tools, etc. The hostal is clean and has a great full breakfast, but all rooms face the central courtyard, so sleep can be compromised. Location is very good, close walk to town, and a few... More

Great place! Perfect location, very close to the springs, and just a few blocks from the middle of town. Quiet, comfortable, very clean rooms. The included breakfast is made-to-order and is delicious! Friendly staff. I will definitely stay here again.

No doubt this hotel is my first choice when I stay in Baños. Is a small colorful and QUIET place, rooms are comfortable, room 11 and 10 are my favorites, the view to the small backyard and the hanging chair in the balcony make the difference, The Rooms are not luxury but are comfortable clean and well decorate, what you...

Very good localization! Really nice breakfast and service! Comfortable and clean room! Very good Cost- benefit! It is not sophisticated but really charming and comfortable pousada. The wifi in the room sometimes is not so good, but perfectly works in common areas.

This is a wonderful hotel, everyone was nice and the place was better than the pictures make it out to be (a rare quality). The rooms are cozy and romantic, art everywhere, two blocks from the thermal baths. We ate breakfast and it was a high quality meal, we did not have any other meals there.

Quiet location next to thermal baths.Rooms are a bit cramped with little space for 2 or 3 suitcases.Beautiful art work by local artist and other ecuadorian craft. Roomy shower stall. Best of all is the breakfast. Lots and nicely presented and served. Hotel can now be booked directly via their website.

It has great food, we had dinner there, wishing we had stopped for lunch too(not to eat in the center of town). Also the breakfast was plenty and excellent. The place itself has rooms each with is own colour, very clean. Bathroom was also clean, with hot water. Cozy atmosphere in the lounge/eating area.
