We had our best meal in Ecuador at this hotel, el sango de camaron. And it was a great place to stay. The staff is attentive; the rooms are comfy and the bathroom had a nice spacious bathtub/jacuzzi.

This was a very nice hotel and the people are very friendly. It was well taken care of with nice amenities. The breakfast was also great. I would recommend staying here and we will be back!

What a wonderful experience! The owners, Jim and Marshia, are so cordial and fun to be around. They arranged the perfect tour for us to visit the Rio Verde area which included some fun cable rides across the terrain. Our room had a perfect view of the Santa Virgin Waterfall and the sounds were so relaxing. La Posada is located...

Close enough to everything in Banos yet far enough away from the noise (what noise in Banos you may well ask!). Love the food ... like "home made" and organic, especially the hearty choices for breakfast. Love the art and colourful way the place was decorated. Felt like home. If I ever make it back to Ecuador's adventure capital, then...

I planned on staying two nights but ended up staying three. The room, which I had chosen online, had a bird's-eye view of the Banos waterfall, and there is nothing quite like going to sleep and awakening to the sound of a trickling waterfall. Aside from the water, it is blissfully quiet. The room was clean, bed was comfortable an...

Thanks for the positive review. As far as the brownie, it could be that when this guest was here we were revising our brownie recipe, which my wife creates and teaches the staff how to make. However, we have never used a cake mix, and I assure any future guests that they will love the current brownie, complete with gooey...

We picked this hotel sight unseen and found it charming. As its name implies, it is filled with art and has nice details.It is close to the center of Banos but is on a quiet street and it has a pleasant patio. This hotel had the best shower of any we had in Ecuador--lots of hot water and good pressure....

We just finished up a three day trip to Banos and have only great things to say about La Posada del Arte. The hostel and the room were very cozy and welcoming. Our room had a fireplace which was great to have a fire each night as it was quite rainy and chilly. Hot water all the time, comfy beds,...

This was a lovely place to stay but the staff were a bit scattered. They were able to get the rooms I requested arranged but they had to do some room arranging - which took too much time. We then requested a restaurant for Dinner, as theirs was closed, and we were sent to a terrible place. The impression was...

Since this guest stayed here in February, I do not remember the specifics of the situation. If there was not a reservation, it is possible we may have had to do some "room arranging," which may take some time, depending on our occupancy at the time. Apparently our efforts were successful since the guest did stay here. In regard to...

I stayed in Posada del Arte a few months ago. I lived in Ecuador for quite a while and Baños is one of my favorite places (on earth), so when I took my Colombian boyfriend and my Venezuelan friend to visit, I had to take them to Baños. My friends at EcTravel recommended me Posada del Arte so I made...

Fans of British television, and the classic work of John Cleese rejoice. Baños, Ecuador is home to an American remake of that classic 80s television show, Faulty Towers. Posada Del Arte is the new title for this show and like the American version of the Office before it, there have been some changes made to the format. The hotel is...
