While we made our reservation on-line, no one let us know that the hotel had closed, so when our taxi took us there, we had few options to let him take us somewhere. He took us to a hostel ( see other review) and we were skeptical but it turned out to be good.

This hotel is well located and comfortable enough for the reasonable price of a room. Staff is friendly and the hotel is well located at a residential area but at a walking distance from downtown and places of interest. Anyways, taxis will take you pretty much anywhere for a buck! Definitely needs renovation since you get a feeling of a... More

We stayed here for 1 night as a stopover point from Banos to Cuenca. The restaurant was closed in the evening despite being listed as open. Wifi didn´t work in the room had to go down to the lobby to get a signal. Breakfast was good with cereal, fruit, yoghurt, eggs and bread with coffee or tea. It was very... More

I went to Riobamba on a mountain biking trip, so I needed a place to stay the night. Some friends recommended this hotel, so I didn't really look for other options. The hotel was average price compared to other hotels and it was located in the center of the city, so it seemed like a good option. This is a... More

Remember why you travelled to Riobamba. For us, it was to do some mountain biking. This hotel was perfect for our stay. The reception is open 24/7 which helped as we did arrive at midnight on our first day. Rooms are clean. Breakfast is basic but the eggs are so delicious. There's a pool table if you want to play...

Located at the centre of the city (Riobamba is a small city, anyway), main city atractions are close enough and a walk around is find to get where you want to go. There is (or at least, was by that time) a bar in front of the hotel, where I spent most of my friday night in the city with... More

We spent one night at this hotel in Riobamba during our 10-day motorcycle trip through Ecuador. It was a good value at $60/night with breakfast included. We had a bit of difficulty finding it but once we did, we were pleased with the location on a hill and away from the main part of town. The views from the room... More

I always stay here with my kids. It's not your everyday modern hotel, the service is great, you can trust the staff. Staff goes out of their way to please. Breakfast is the only meal we ate there and it was pretty good. The city is just a few walking minutes away. Rooms are spacious, showers are nice and hot.... More
