“Probably one of the best hotels in Ambato”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Although Ambato is a small town, this hotel has many services hard to find on big cities: good service, good food and comfortable spaces. It's also located on a central place, near the turistic spots of town. The rooms should be updated, but still is a good option on Ambato.

Room Tip: I recommend to book for a room on higher floors

We stayed one night at Hotel Emperador, after a three day bicycling trip through the Andes. The spa facilities were very welcome, but we had to have the saunas turned on for us and running the jets of both hot tubs seemed to be a bit of a hotel secret. The staff gladly took care of this, once we called down. They have a very satisfying breakfast buffet and the accommodations are comfortable and clean. There was some night time construction up the road, but the hotel was not to blame for the disturbance. The staff are friendly and helpful, but aren't completely prepared to deal with large groups that arrive en masse. The hotel is well situated next to one of the beautiful squares in Ambato and is well worth a visit.

Surprisingly nice rooms and excellent service. The food in the resturant is reasonably priced and very good. Outstanding breakfast. Lot's of great shopping nearby. Too bad the casino is no longer open.

I was very pleased with this hotel. Stayed in a very nice suite. Clean, nice furnishings and friendly staff. Good money value. They even did a nice job of minimizing disruption from a pro soccer team that stayed there. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: I think I stayed in 305. Southwest corner suite on third floor with view of park.

I was really surprised to discover this hotel in a smallish city like Ambato. All the details were well thought out, the front desk staff was courteous and professional, and the location is great. The food in the 6th floor restaurant is so-so, but the view while you're eating it makes it worth it. Important to note that I don't know if the staff speaks English.
