Mystified as to the high ratings on TA for this hotel. On the plus side, check in was easy, reception and all other staff friendly and helpful. However, there is a strange painting in reception which on closer inspection is definitely obscene, our room was small and dark, with a bizarre and very noisy door latch. Bathroom very dated, although... More

The hotel building itself is very very beautiful, the beds comfortable, and the staff (what there is) very friendly. They took good care of us, and the $5 breakfast was abundant and delicious. Like other reviewers, we were a little concerned with security, but had nothing of value with us so weren't too worried. The attention to detail, alas, was... More

We were traveling that day when the earthquake hit....staff looked after us very well. I would suggest they upgrade locks on doors ....repaint rooms....hotel itself is beautiful. Close to parks and downtown. This is not a tourist location .

Our room was very comfortable and quite spacious. There was plenty of hot water for showers and even a heater to take the chill off at night. Unfortunately what prevents us from offering a more favourable review were concerns over security and service. On more than one occasion we were in the lobby. Keys to the rooms were clearly marked...

A quaint hotel in an old building with a very photogenic courtyard. Rooms have big wooden doors that are opened by large iron keys (just like in the olden days). Rooms have very nice old furnishings and plenty of space and comfort. Slept very well.

During our stay in January (2016) the hotel proprietor, Nelson, went out of his way to assist us with our travel arrangements, including advance purchasing the bus tickets we needed for the next leg of our trip to Cuenca. Our room was very nice, too.

Our room had a full size bed and a creaky bunk bed. The bathroom was adequate size and storage was ample. The rooms were quite clean, the linens minimal and the toiletries skimpy. The hotel is quite Spanish in decor and offers a cozy area to sit. The food at the restaurant attached was below par and I would suggest... More

We chose to stay here for Christmas day and chose to stay in a suite which was stunning and large. We loved the historic nature of the hotel! We didn't realize being Christmas when we booked our lodging, that they weren't planning to have the kitchen open for dinner. We insisted that they refund us our 20$ so that no... More

Excellent hotel in the heart of Latacunga. Boutique feel in beautiful surroundings. Full restaurant attached to the hotel with excellent food and free breakfast for guests. Tour pickups and scheduling available at the front desk from friendly staff. If you find yourself in Latacunga I would highly suggest the Villa de Tacvnga.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ecuador got the unique hotel build with pumice stone The house was ordered built at the beginning of the eighteenth century by the Marquis de Miraflores. Here lived the General Manuel Tomas Maldonado and housing was in the hands of his heirs for over 150 years until it was acquired and renovated and converted into a hotel. Pumice of this house was formed by rapid cooling of a lava-rich gases. In volcanic areas like Latacunga, where the pumice was plentiful, it was used for foundations in traditional houses and walls built to stop dividing land or properties. ... more   less
