I stayed here in February. We had a pretty room with comfortable beds. The sheets were amazing! The breakfast was included with the room and was delicious. The staff was helpful and friendly. I enjoyed sitting outside on the terrace and listening to the waterfall.

There were three of us that stayed three nights in this colorful hostel. The hostel feels full of life with original art all over the walls and vibrantly painted walls in every room. The location was great in Banos - it was quiet for a good nights sleep yet close to the central market and shopping. The breakfasts were delicious and filling, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere simply funky. I loved this place.

My husband had stayed here on a previous trip with friends and loved the pancakes served at breakfast in their restaurant. We decided to try their restaurant one evening for dinner. A wide variety of things were offered on the menu. My family ordered the mexican tacos and shrimp creole. Very good! Typical art and lovely decor! A great place for dinner!

I stayed here for only one night in a trip to Banos, but my experience was wonderful. We stayed in the newer part (the Blue House) and the balcony of our room opened to a beautiful view of a mountain with a waterfall coming down. Needless to say, it was an incredibly relaxing night.

In general, the rooms were comfortable with soft beds and hot water.

As a couple of other people have commented, the breakfast was amazing. It wasn't the typical Ecuadorian buffet breakfast - you got to choose between a variety of options such as Huevos Rancheros, Pancakes, Light (i.e. granola and fruit), or an Omelet. Honestly, the breakfast made this place for me - I have been to so many places in Ecuador with the fruit/bread buffet that a fresh cooked breakfast was incredibly appealing.

We also had lunch at the restaurant and were not disappointed. The food was well made and fresh.

The next time I go to Banos, I will definitely stay at this hotel. It was a great price, a great location, and had great food.

Room Tip: Blue house is lovely

Very nice place, great art and interesting overall for ambiance and quality of food. Breakfast was very good. It was served hot and I wanted a big breakfast so I ordered more and although the ignoring of solo travelers/diners is standard, these servers were better than most. I enjoyed the entire experience and may stay at this quiet place near the waterfall and the best termas inBanos. Thank you La Posada del Arte.

We spent 4 nights at Posada del Arte and would advise you to stay in the Blue House or new section of this establishment. The old section is in need of some renovation but the Blue House is wonderful. The restaurant has great meals, the owners are helpful and the courtyard was a great place to gather and enjoy a glass of wine. The location is close to one of the best baths in town and overall we would recommend this place if you are headed to Banos.

Room Tip: We stayed in the older section of the Posada for 2 nights and then we moved to the Blue House in roo...

Best breakfasts in Banos for sure. Try the papaya honey-- freaking delicious. Very good coffee too!

Wifi always worked-- strong plus.

Hot water with strong pressure is so fantastic. It's quiet, has views of the falls, & is pretty. We only stayed a night but would return!
