I recently stayed here for three nights with my girlfriend during our travels in Ecuador.
Posada del Arte is a sweet little place with yummy food and it is definitely good value for the price.
The location was also ideal as it is right across from the beautiful waterfall and the hot baths but far enough away from the action to be very peaceful.
Normally I would not complain about owners of a hotel but there were numerous occasions where we felt quite awkward and even a bit unwelcome at the hotel. The first day we got there the female owner was nagging (almost yelling) and the male owner right in front of us, as a guest this is something I should ever have to see or hear. During her nagging of the male owner, we were completely ignored as if we didn't exist. The second day we were there the owners were eating a late lunch in the restaurant, as as we walked in the door the female owner yelled at us 3 times that the restaurant was closed. We were very stunned to be approached like this. We were simply returning to the hotel from a morning out and didn't have any intention of dining with them at that time. If she had taken the time to say hi to us the previous day she would have recognized that we were guests of her hotel. I would recommend to the owners that they keep private disagreements private, dine in private if the restaurant is closed and try to welcome all guests.
The male owner did have some great recommendations about art which I really appreciated.
