“Like staying in a friend's home”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We were two couples staying at this charming hotel on Christmas day. This is the most charming boutique hotel, rooms are impeccable with very comfortable beds. The location couldn't be better and we were able to walk all around town easily. Luis, the general manager, went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and when it was almost impossible to find an open restaurant for lunch, he took us in his own car until we found a place. In the afternoon he prepared tea for us, beautifully served in the hotel's courtyard. In the evening he took us once again to a very good restaurant and we had one of our best meals in Ecuador.
We found people in Ecuador very friendly altogether but this experience was truly special.

We stopped over in Riobamba for a night and were really happy with the San Pedro de Riobamba.
The hotel is a beautiful, old family home and is tucked away from the road, so is a quiet oasis.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
In fact, when we asked for a recommendation for dinner, a staff member offered to escort us to the restaurant, to ensure that we didn't get lost...wonderful hospitality!!
Our room was beautifully furnished and breakfast was served in a lovely courtyard in the centre of the hotel.
The breakfast was delicious and the service was prompt and friendly.
This was one of our favourite hotels in Ecuador and we highly recommend it.

Amazing service, elegant, great rooms and great breakfast!!!! and above all honest! I forgot my camera in my room, guess what? they kept it and they are shipping it to me. That's a hotel, they should be proud of themselves and keep the good job!

We couldn't resist this hotel after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, and they were right. Wonderfully located hotel in Riobamba, with super large comfortable beds, even more comfortable pillows and a room comprising a huge bedroom, small sitting rooms and exceptional bathroom. the only thing that would have improved our stay a little would have been more guests - my suggestion is that the hotel looks at having an online booking facility as booking it was quite difficult..

Once the new train line is open the Hotel will be even better - being just across the road from the station.

Room Tip: rooms at the back will be quieter.

A well restored colonial hotel with great charme! Each room has its individual decoration with various, mainly christian art. The antique, well kept and nicely combined furniture give each room its specific character. The staff was extremly kind and helpful, particularly when I asked them to help with the reservation of tickets for the "Nariz del Diabolo" train but also when asked for dining recommendations. Also, when requesting an early check out, a "boxed breakfast" was automatically organized without even asking for it! That's real service! The central location, a walking distance from all major sites, is also great. Another plus, its set-back location from the main street guarantee quietness and good sleep! I can only recommend staying there!

Hotel San Pedro is a treasure and gem in Riobamba. There are a lot of reasons to come to Riobamba, and this five star hotel is certainly one of them! The hospitality from beginning to end made it a night to remember forever! If you love art, you will have another reason to love this place. There is a wonderful room upstairs with religious art. It was a great place to sit, meditate and draw close to God. A wonderful breakfast is served in a stunning courtyard with the morning sun making it even more beautiful. Make sure you do not miss this place of warm hospitality, beauty, and charm! It is much more than just a place to stay!

San Pedro de Riobamba is excellent value for money, offering well-furnished, comfortable and stylish rooms for around $100.00 a night. If you are heading to this town, you can't go wrong here.

The hotel is fairly small and the reception area is almost hidden from view. However, the staff are very helpful and welcoming to new guests. Always smiling, they are quietly spoken but warm.

Our room, 'San Francisco', was again a touch on the small side, but elegantly furnished and spotlessly clean, which made up for the lack of space. This is a place where you can feel at home and really relax. The bathroom has a bath/shower with reliable hot water that gushes out of the tap.

We had a comfortable night's sleep with no disturbances but we stayed out of season, so can't really draw too much from that. However, given that the front room occupies the road-facing area of the hotel, traffic-noise from the street hotel is nicely contained and I don't think any rooms face out onto the street. The front room itself is an excellent place to relax and meet other guests.

The decor of the hotel has a neo-classical tinge to it, and it's very easy on the eye. Staying in the colonial area of town (the beautiful church, San Antonio, is just a few blocks away), you get a taste for the stylish side of Riobamba life here.

Breakfast is continental: a small bowl of cereal, followed by a bowl of fruit with yoghurt. In addition to that you have a mixture of breads and a plate of ham, cheese and pate. It is taken in a small, covered courtyard area that is absolutely pristine.

All in all, this was a fantastic stay. If I were to visit Riobamba again, this is where I'd stay. As a young couple, we found this hotel absolutely ideal for us.
