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...

Thanks for your positive description of our hotel. However, as one of the owners, which you have characterized as "angry" with bad "body language" I would like you to be specific. 'Body language' is very vague. My wife and I have run this hotel for 12 years and have never been accused of this. Please describe the particular situation that...

If you want to wake up next to a waterfall this is the place! Clean, comfortable accommodations. The place couldn't possibly be more charming. Even though it was included in the price, breakfast was one of the best we had on the trip. The location is perfect, about 5 minutes walk to the main street. The staff was surprisingly unfriendly,...

What can I say, the place is just as shown. Art on every wall, great music in the cafe and living room area, beautiful terrace space, hot water and a lovely staff. Oh, i forgot to mention the amazing, fresh and delicious food. 5 stars all around for such great prices.

The Posada is an excellent choice for your trip to Banos. First, the owners (American) and the staff are excellent. Very warm and welcoming. The hotel has very nice and different guest rooms and common spaces. Breakfast is included and you will find yourself visiting the restaurant for dinner too. The lunch and dinner menu have many varied entrees and...
