I stayed here in March after a few days of riding in the mountains and La Posada del Arte and it was just the type of place I needed to rest in for a few days. The interior is beautiful with lots of art and the rooms were impeccably clean. Karl and Priscilla made me feel super welcome and at home. Karl hooked me up with what was probably the coolest room ever. Right from my bed I could see the water fall. It does not get better than that!

6 friends traveling stayed here in February. The hotel was perfect and all Covid Protocols were followed. The outside courtyard was a great place to hang out and visit . The rooms were decorated beautifully. Breakfast was very delicious and excellent hosts. I certainly will stay here when I go back to Baños.

Wonderful place just a 5 minute walk from the center of Banos. Carl and Priscilla are very warm and accommodating hosts. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the breakfast is fresh and delicious. We had a great view of the waterfall from our room as well. Would highly recommend!!

Karl and Priscilla are caring and wonderful hosts. The views of the waterfall , the colorful atmosphere, abundant breakfast. Close to the hot springs, short walk to the center, great art gallery nearby. Enjoyed our stay and miss the evening chats with Karl and Priscilla. Hikes in the area are gorgeous.
