The Abraspungo Inn is tucked away in the outskirts of Riobamba and may be difficult to find without the help of a taxi or GPS, but it is a great find. The neighbourhood of the Inn is a little bit run down and not too attractive, but when entering the cobblestone path and driveway of the hotel which exposes the main building of the hosteria, a handcrafted wooden masterpiece with its rusty charm, everything else is forgotten.
The bedroom suites are spread all over the premises and melt nicely into the man made garden landscape with lots of indigenous flowers as if being part of it. The rooms, which are more individual tiny houses than rooms, are really “cool”, equipped with large windows that show the mountains in the background. The ceilings are elevated with wooden beams supporting the roof, and the bathrooms are spacious and adorned with ornate tiles.
Some free roaming animals as lamas, hummingbirds or especially roosters that may disturb your night rest so you better ask for a room to the inside of the property.
The entire property was clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The staff was very supportive and did everything to make sure we were comfortable. The restaurant offers excellent food at reasonable prices.
We did regret that we only spent a night at Abraspungo.More
