Although a bit pricey for Loja it's good value for money when put into international standards. Very modern, with excellent facilities and great food. Quiet at night. Nice gym/swimming pool, although it only opens in the afternoon.

We stayed one evening in the Loja HOJO and I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of the staff and the quality of the room. Both very much met our expectations. The breakfast buffet, included in the rate, was excellent. As noted by one of the other reviewers, there is no AC, but opening a window allows a bit of... More

Stay here for three days and had an awesome time. The service is as you could expect Freon the Howard Johnson chain. The room got everything you need and more although there could add the Pringles for an afternoon snack.

Excellent hotel, in general Hojo's in Ecuador are way much better than in the US!. Hojo Loja has big rooms, comfortable beds, nice clean bedding. There's no A/C in the rooms but you can open the window to get some fresh air. The hotel is smoke free. Buffet breakfast is included. I would definitely go back!

Me and my family stayed there for 2 days. All the staff is very friendly. The rooms are clean and confortable. They have a pool that is open from 11a.m to 6 p.m. Also there is a jacuzzi beside the pool where my children played a lot. Definitly a great place to stay.

I have stayed here numerous times and it is ok. Actually it would be better than ok if the staff wasn't horrible. Most travelers are under the assumption that this is the only option in Loja and thus the reason they get alot of business. There are other good options. I have asked several times please don't enter my room... More

We were passing through and looking for a place to stay for the night. After driving around for 30 minutes, we hired a taxi to lead us there. Upon arrival, we were attended to by a professional and friendly staff, and given a freshly prepared fruit drink. The hotel is relatively new and nicely appointed, with a large, modern lobby... More

From the moment of arrival, you were immediately attended to. Not that I thought I looked particularly hot or flustered (despite or maybe because of a nine hour bus ride from Piura), I was even given a cold (and I mean wonderfully cold) jugo, whilst we went through the check in formalities. The rooms are wonderfully spacious, and the view... More

Great experience. I arrived early and was warmly received with a room provided within minutes of my arrival. Had just traveled three hours from Cuenca and was impressed with boiling herbal tea or coffee at the ready with some snacks that are permanently available for all new arrivals. My room was amazing, large king size bed and great working area... More
