Sometimes, in foreign countries, the hotels you rember best are not the megastar city hotels, but the hotels with atmosphere, particularly in the smaller towns. This was one of those places. It was cool at 8000 feet elevation, so when we checked in, the bellhop asked if we wanted a fire and proceeded to build and light a fire in our room's fireplace. Nothing like the atmosphere of a crackling fire. One of the lights in the room didn't work, so after checking with a new bulb that still didn't work, the bellhop undid the wiring and removed the whole fixture and replaced it with one that worked. Nothing like good service. We really enjoyed our stay.

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.

We spent two nights and It was too short. It is the best hotel we stayed in our week long trip. The rooms are big and clean with lots of light when you want it and darkness when you need it. Very clean with very comfortable beds. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with antique and traditional ornaments from the area. Food and service was excellent. The restaurant manager and part of the staff speak English and they strive to provide excellent service.

Although there was not a lot of children, mine enjoyed being outside. The Hotel is safe even though the “Hacienda” has lots of open areas. The entire family enjoyed our relaxing stay at Abraspungo and we’ve already planning on going back next year!!!

I was at Abraspungo 1 night only, fortunately.
The Hotel name comes from a mix of Spanish and Quechua languages and means, more or less, "Open door"
It is a strange place which original owner was a passionate climber: a sort of nightmare, with dark and depressive rooms, overcharged of odd stuff.
The current owner and the restaurant staff, were rather unfriendly and rude.
The room was better: wide but dark, with a great fireplace.
Since the room was really cold, I was offered to light the fire.
When I was back from dinner, the smell of smoke in the room was heavy.
The next morning when I woke up, I found to be completely covered with itchy red spots.
REAL ALARM: what is this?
SOLUTION: when I left my room, all red spots disappeared in a couple of hours. It was the effect of the smoke coming from the wood they used to light the fire.
I checked it : they use recovered wood with old PAINT traces.
Be careful: they are poisoning you!

Sorry we only stopped one night. Room was how I expected it to be, Large, clean and well decorated, with plenty of hanging space for clothes.
Restaurant meal was agian very good, hot, well served and of good quality.
Based on the room rates it was better than other places we stayed.
Restaurant Manager willing to talk and show he wanted to mix with Customers.
