Very good food (try the trout). Comfortable beds. Well designed decor with original paintings and view across to the waterfall. Highly recommended. Convenient for central town and the hot baths. Very relaxing atmosphere.

We loved the Posada del Arte! We stayed for five days in the older part of the hotel, but the newer part was equally beautiful. Breakfasts were the best we had in our two months in Ecuador, and on the occasions we didn't want to go out, the reasonably priced dinners were also delicious. Best of all, was our lovely... More

Hello!? first of all, what is with your prices for this hotel? We have been staying at Posada del Arte and it is half the cost that you are advertising. We almost didn't stay here because of your pricing. That would have been a shame because as we've been in Banos for over a week, trying out various restaurants and... More

JimRedd, Owner at La Posada del Arte, responded to this review

Karen, Thanks for your positive review. In regard to the pricing, TripAdvisor does not know the pricing. They have a very cozy relationship with booking.com, which is where the pricing comes from. Booking.com is totally screwed up. They charge 12% commission and have no idea of our availability or pricing. I have asked that tripadvisor put a link to our... More

After spending a few days in a jungle lodge in the Amazon basin this hotel was exactly what we needed! Beautiful room with a fireplace, hot showers, and an incredible view of a waterfall. The owner Jim was extremely helpful with directions, swimming caps for the thermal baths, and even let us use his computer. Great breakfast was more than... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days/2 nights and it was great. We stayed in room 8 which had a beautiful view of the waterfall on the hill. There was a fireplace in the bedroom which we had planned on using but did not get a chance to. Also there was a jetted bathtub that was awesome. The... More

This is a lovely place to stay and a cool place to hang out in the cozy foyer with a drink and a bite to eat. The owners are a friendly couple from the States who are very accommodating. The rooms are beautiful and we enjoyed a stunning view from our little balcony of a cute little waterfall close to... More

La Posada del Arte is lovely. I had an amazing weekend there hanging out with friends while visiting Baños. My room had a great view of one of the waterfalls plus it was clean and cozy. The breakfast was incredible (huevos rancheros plus coffee and home made juice) and it came included with my stay. Highly recommended!!! A+++

I have been here 4 days and always stay here when I am in town. I get a room with a fireplace and listen to the waterfall as I sleep. The meals are very good and breakfast is included.

Great five nights at this homey happy posada. Located on edge of town so is quiet yet somehow centrally located and within five minute walk of everything. Quaint decor with wonderful art (no surprise!). Friendly staff and dog always made us feel welcome. Wonderful breakfast options - loved the fresh passion fruit juice! Our room #10 was lovely. Only downsides... More

We initially went to banos for three days to do some cycling, rafting and the never-tried-before canyoning. We ended up staying five days, partly due to bad weather, but mostly because of the relaxed stay at posado del arte. For usd 70 a night we stayed in a lovely room with fantastic breakfasts and a great location! The day we... More
