I stayed here 10 days in june. The hotel is well located in the center of the city. I liked very much the spacious room with its big bed. There is great variety of choice at breakfast and the food was tasty. The lunch and dinner is decent, but it seems that there is some problem of organization, as even... More

Spacious, comfortable rooms and public areas. Very nice space with large jacuzzi, sauna and nice pool. Good location in this tranquil but interesting city. Avoid the restaurant. The food is very ordinary except for a marinated salmon appetizer. Look instead for "El Escondite" on calle Rocafuerte for one of the best lunches in town. Roka Plaza's restaurant also has excellent... More

We spent one night in this hotel. Hotel was nice enough but there were some concerns. First of all, there was only one towel in the bathroom and no facecloths. The bed was harder than we would have liked, though some may prefer that. Dinner was a disappointment. We both chose filet mignon which was tough and not very flavorable.... More

Although Ambato is a small town, this hotel has many services hard to find on big cities: good service, good food and comfortable spaces. It's also located on a central place, near the turistic spots of town. The rooms should be updated, but still is a good option on Ambato.

We stayed one night at Hotel Emperador, after a three day bicycling trip through the Andes. The spa facilities were very welcome, but we had to have the saunas turned on for us and running the jets of both hot tubs seemed to be a bit of a hotel secret. The staff gladly took care of this, once we called... More

Surprisingly nice rooms and excellent service. The food in the resturant is reasonably priced and very good. Outstanding breakfast. Lot's of great shopping nearby. Too bad the casino is no longer open.

I was very pleased with this hotel. Stayed in a very nice suite. Clean, nice furnishings and friendly staff. Good money value. They even did a nice job of minimizing disruption from a pro soccer team that stayed there. Highly recommend.

I was really surprised to discover this hotel in a smallish city like Ambato. All the details were well thought out, the front desk staff was courteous and professional, and the location is great. The food in the 6th floor restaurant is so-so, but the view while you're eating it makes it worth it. Important to note that I don't... More
