A most pleasant stay from start to finish while in Banos. Excellent dinner the first night and breakfast was just as good in the morning. The rooms are nicely appointed and you can always hear the waterfall outside with your windows open. Staff were very helpful, especially the American owners of the facility. We found out a lot about the... More

I very much enjoyed my stay there last year. My room was clean and well kept with a view to the back garden and a small porch with a chair swing that was perfect for reading before bed. It included my own bathroom. A delicious breakfast is included with the price of the room each day. They also serve excellent... More

We stayed only one night but wish we had time to stay longer. This is a small and quaint inn, we had a very comfortable room with ensuite bath and two small patios. The beds were very comfortable with lovely linens. The inn was quiet, great for sleeping. The food was outstanding, our best so far in Ecuador - we... More

I had planned to stay at Posada with friends, but ended up making the trip there alone. The place was great for a woman traveling by herself -- hosts were friendly and accommodating. Good meals, pretty atmosphere, great location.

I echo all of the previous comments: The property is away from the noise, but close to town The decor is beautiful, putting us in a relaxed mood The breakfasts are great Our room was lovely, looking onto the waterfall. Not having stayed anywhere else in this town, I can't comment on how it compares to others, but it was... More

Posada del Arte is one of those hotels where being there is part of the attraction. We loved the homey design of the rooms (ours had a fireplace), the art on the walls, the hammock under the skylight on the top floor (perfect for reading) and the roof terrace overlooking the waterfall. The breakfasts -- included in the modest price... More

I stayed at la Posada del Arte with my parents for one night. We arrived and the female owner did not even greet us. When we asked her questions about the hikes in the area and what to do she was very unhelpful and gave us no information. Our family is from Ecuador so luckily we had them to give... More

I stayed there with my two girls and another family of 3. The service was amazing, decorations made it homey and relaxing (unlike an hotel), the food was great, rooms were well kept. The waterfall is right near adding an extra touch. It's away from the noise of the town, but within walking distance of good places and just a... More

We stayed here 2 days, quiet, good breakfast, good people running the place. The first room had a Jacuzzi that leaked all over the floor; it seemed to be much more important to us than them, but they moved us to another room. Other than that, our stay was nice. I would stay there again. Skip the Jacuzzi.

We stayed in room 3 overlooking the waterfall and could hear its soothing rush all night. The hotel is very comfortable, spotlessly clean and the free breakfasts ate gourmet! The owners were so attentive and so friendly! And there is wonderful art hanging on every wall, almost a gallery within a hotel! Wow!!
