Around the bus terminal, the plaza central and the plaza iglesia are dozens of hostels; infinitesimal rooms, no keys, single light bulb, broken window, wall paper from the Nixon administration; All have at least 3 dogs. There are streets that run between the plazas that are lined with dirt bike and quad rentals, chiva excursions, massage parlors, souvenir shops, and... More

The hotel has an ideal location on a quiet street but just a few blocks from everything in town. The property is very attractive. Our spacious room had a patio with a view of the waterfall and even had a loft. Breakfasts were very good. I think it would be difficult to do any better in Banos.

This hotel would have much potential if 1) they could speak a little english 2) they could learn of how to interact with the public and be a bit more service oriented. 3) if their restaurant was open, don't count to eat there. It is though easy walk distance to other restaurants.

We happened upon the Volcano after rejecting several others, and were so happy we did! It is well located in a quiet part of Banos near the thermal baths, and offers peace, quiet and relaxation - plus absolutely wonderful beds and GREAT pillows. The pool and jacuzzi are in a lovely garden with a nice view of the cascade. LOTS... More

We stayed for a weekend, there were a problem with my reservation (my fault), but they solve it.The rooms are really good, clean, private, better than a lot of hotels in the same category on major cities in US. Close to everything (2-3 blocks) and in a perfect location far from crowded zones of Baños. I didn't check the internet... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on our tour of Ecuador for a night. The rooms were nice and the view from the balconies was spectacular. We were a little surprised when we stepped on the balcony and realized that you are barely separated from your neighbors and if standing on the balcony you can see into the rooms (even... More

Stayed for one night as a couple. Rooms and building are a little dated and basic but clean if uninspiring. Reasonable location just out of main hustle and bustle. Internet was ok in reception, didn't work in room. Liked the breakfast, limited but decent. Good view from the balcony. Shower was pretty good. Fine for the price. We were woken... More
