Loved the art, all the rooms have original works, given the subject matter I expect they are all by local artists. This is in a quiet area of town but plenty of bars a short walk away. Banos is an outwardbound centre so lots to do or you could just hire a taxi and visit the cascades in comfort, which... More

Yes the place looks great and the menu is appetizing. It could have been a perfect experience if my dish hadn't been barely warm and if they did not serve this horrible instant coffee. Smile is in option. The waitress was extremely unfriendly.

Cozy place in the town, very close to the the thermal pools, with a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere and confortable rooms for an average price during the week, higher in the weekends. Very nice and helpful staff at the reception in the evening, a little disappointing during breakfast the the following morning, but that's the only defect. Good breakfast.

This restaurant was very near to where we were staying and we saw it well reviewed on another site. WE loved the art that covered the walls. The dishes were colorful. We ate early so don't know if this is typical. I ordered wine and my husband ordered hot chocolate when I placed our dinner order. His hot chocolate came... More

Great location outside the center of the town, at a quiet street and still nearby everything. The hotel is cozy, rooms are nice and we loved the breakfast. Service is great and the owners are very helpful. Great value for your money!

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!
