I'm giving this property a 'very good' rating for Ecuador. For those with extensive US / Euro travel this would be an Average, but given your other options - it was good. The place is very clean which is probably the most important to me. Also comfortable - bed was great and room decor was cute and fitting for locale/climate.... More

JimRedd, Owner at La Posada del Arte, responded to this review

I thank this reviewer for the well-written, positive review. In case readers wonder about the "eclectic" owners, let me clarify. La Posada is "family owned" by my wife Marshia and myself. Our son, Jason, is the chef at La posada and also cooks at our new "Stray Dog" brewpub in town. He thinks he is an owner and sometimes acts... More

Beautiful room with the view of the waterfall, lots of paintings by different Ecuadorian artists, balcony with a hammock, good wireless internet connection, nice breakfast, a very nice massage salon right next to the hotel, good location, and English speaking. All for less than $30 (single). Just perfect.

I went with my 2 children (9 and 10yo) and we got a very nice, clean and spacious room with 3 beds and a private bathroom and with a wonderful breakfast included, for $50 a night. They don't have tv in the room, but they do have wi fi. The place is walking distance from downtown Banos, but not so... More

This is a small place managed by an American couple that really like what they are doing. Each room is customize and different to the others. Just in front of a waterfall the environment is wonderful, relaxing and peaceful. It is very close (walking distance 2 min) to the thermal pools and the "Agua Santa Virgin Church" (walking distance 10... More

Located in quiet area, ten minutes stroll from the town centre, near to one of the main baths and scenic waterfall, the Posada comprises a lovely building and adjacent annex, providing comfortable, decent-sized en-suite rooms at a reasonable price. Communal lounge area off of the restaurant if you require a dose of tv. Interesting and varied menu of well prepared... More

We stayed here for 1 night in July with another couple. We had the Canela 1 room in the Blue house. The room was great. Walls were freshly painted and in color and the bed in this room was a Queen size and there was also a big Jacuzzi tub. Our friends were in the other building and were happy... More

The food is fantastic, and good value. The room we had (7) has a lovely view of the waterfall and a balcony. Hot showers, very close to town and the hot springs but not noisy. Would recommend. Not sure of value as was part of a package tour

After reading some of the negative reviews posted here, I feel compelled to provide a review. I found Posada del Arte to be quite clean and the service quite adequate. The rooms and beds were very comfortable, and unlike the negative reviews posted here, there was no sign of cockroaches. After a week in the jungle, it was great to... More

Posada del Arte was recommended to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. The rooms are great, with comfortable beds. It is close to town but on the edge next to the cliffs and a waterfall, which makes it very peaceful and quiet at night. The food was great, especially the breakfast, which I think makes the rooms...
