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!!

La Posada is well located on the quiet side of town with a spectacular view of the Waterfall and located two blocks from the outdoor baths. Everything is within comfortable walking distance, including the bus station. The hotel is visually pleasing. Paintings by local artists and Ecuadorian craftsmen fill the walls. Breakfast in the cosy dining room were the best... More

My friends and I found this hostel/hotel from the lonely planet book and walked in to check availability. We were stunned by the beautiful colors and paintings of the restaurant and lobby. After booking we're even more pressed by the rest of the hotel including our rooms. Our rooms were lovely, no tv thank goodness. We had a lovely fireplace... More

What a lovely little hotel! Four of us traveled to Banos for a few days; my sister, mother, husband and I stayed for four nights at La Posada Del Arte and were delighted with the stay. Mom and sis stayed in the room "Verde 2" and it was charming and perfect - 3 windows with french doors overlooking the main... More

What a treat to stay in this creative oasis. Wonderful location right near the banos with roof top views of the waterfall. Marsha and Jim are wonderful hosts and staying here was a real treat! Our room looked onto a jungle garden and was very pleasantly decorated. We ate here and enjoyed the delicious meals. We were even treated to... More

I am sitting at the foot of a mountain face sipping roasted coffee... Drinking fresh squeezed papaya... And languishing over hot breads, cheese, and jams... All after a night of perfect sleep. Posada del Arte is centrally located... And it's your loss not to stay here. Very amiable staff. $1.50 taxi or walk from bus after you arrive.
