Latacunga is an uninspiring city (especially entering from the Panamerican Highway), but one you get into the city center, it is quite a charming place. This hotel is situated in the historic city center across from Parque Vicente Lopez. It is a 15 minute walk from the bus terminal. The rooms are very large and bright. The bathrooms are updated and large. Hot showers are available, but I first had to let the water run for about 15-20 minutes for 'hot' water - what a waste! The rooms that face the park have huge windows that not only overlook the park, but also have superb views overlooking some of the city and the surrounding mountains/volcanoes. The staff is friendly and the hotel is kept spotless. My only complaint is the small internet cafe downstairs that has continuously running advertisements/music playing (loudly) on the speakers -usually starting by 8am.
