I have been here for two weeks but I'd love to stay more. It is incredible cozy in this Posada. And the owner, Ines and Misael are so lovely and friendly - hell whereever they can. They do care about you having a good and unforgetable stay here in Baños. The breakfast is various and daily changing. But the best...

This lovely, old mission-style house is a breath of fresh air , especially for a middle-aged person such as myself. It is run by a young couple, the wife of whom speaks both Spanish and fluent English. All bedrooms are upstairs with individual bathrooms. There is lots of hot water which is unusual to find in Ecuador and a real...

Found this place across the street from a pricier place - such a great location with an adorable place, wonderful character with a mix of modern and traditional cultural decorations.

One of the best places I have ever stayed at. It really feels like being home, the owners are the best and treat you like you are one of the family. The old house is beautiful and it's right next to the hot baths. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. I really reccommend this place.

Great value, great food ( breakfast included) and the managers are awesome. Perfect English for us slow speaking Spanish people. Location is perfect. 1 block from the hot springs. 3 blocks from the center, and quiet at night. If you like homemade granola, fresh fruit, coffee, bread and other goodies for breakfast, and great people, you will love this place.
