What an awesome and unique experience! My husband described Jim as a "real piece of work," meaning he is a very interesting man with excellent local knowledge that he enthusiastically imparted to us. Our room Canela #2, was clean, comfortable, spacious, and boasted fantastic waterfall views. The food was also absolutely delicious. Another plus was having onsite secure gated parking...

The rooms and beds are very comfortable and not found all over equator. Great nite sleep in a place with an unbelievable view of an unbelievable water fall. Great staff and service. They were helpful finding plenty to do in Banos. It is a great city with a lot to do close to town.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The room was clean. The dinner and breakfasts were good. The decor was catchy - artworknot to our taste but distinctive. The room overlooked a garden area and there was a balcony overlooking the same garden with a swinging chair. We would have appreciated the option of brighter lighting and a dresser to store things...

If you make your travel arrangements yourself, consider staying in this nice place. This is a 3 story hotel owned by immigrants from USA. The place is clean, the staff is very friendly. If your trip is arranged by a travel company, ask them to book a few days for you in this hotel, too. Request to stay on the...

Posada del Arte is a perfect place to stay in Banos. The Hostal is centraly located with great views of the waterfall. The rooms are wide and spacious, super clean. The breakfast is really good prepared with local ingredients. The backyard is great to hang out with a drink. Nice place, great people!

We decided to stay at Posada del Arte because we read great reviews about this place! The rooms are wide, spacious and very clean. The views to the waterfall are amazing. This Hostel is centraly located, easy to move around town. The breakfast is very tasty, best in Ecuador!! A place to feel like home!

LPDA is just 2-3 blocks from the heart of Banos. The property has a nice large outdoor patio as well as a rooftop deck and a few balconies to enjoy the direct view of the municipal waterfalls. Every space in LPDA is colorful and adorned with artwork. Breakfast was included and instead of just bread, juice, coffee, and fruit...you could...

This is a business. We have many guests and daily issues about lots of things. Sometimes you have to wait till some previous issues are resolved. Maybe I had to unplug a toilet, or change a lightbulb, or make the hot water system work, or maybe pay a supplier. I do not “yammer” (whatever that means) or “gab” behind the...

Found this hostel through a blog post about the thermal waters at Termas de La Virgen. Like the author of that post, he was staying somewhere else and found this lovely hostel and moved here. Unfortunately I only got to spend one night here. The room was fantastic with a queen-size COMFORTABLE bed and pillows! I would consider this a...
