“Beautiful details”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

We stayed two nights in this very beautifully restored old hacienda overlooking Alausí. The rooms are lovely and stylish with very few decorations apart from the old woodwork and the antique furniture. Great large bathroom with tub. You can sit outside your room in the evening and look at the town (with a blanket, yes, but what a lovely experience). This is great when you travel with a small child. Also, this is a place where they are attentive to details. It is one of the few hotels I have visited, where there were three towels when we arrived instead of the normal two for the adults. Such things are really nice.
You can have breakfast when it suits you - also at 7, if you are going on the morning train, and everything is done to make you happy.
My main reason for wanting to go back is, though, that the hotel is so beautiful.
Alusí itself is also worth a couple of nights, even though most people only stay for one - a nice little town, charmingly situated and with fine cobble stone streets. Not much happening, but that is part of the charm.

I really wanted to take the Devil's Nose Train ride, and this little hosteria was recommended for both location and comfort. It is a two block walk beside the rail tracks to the train station, as well as a few shops. Another two blocks gets you to some decent restaurants. Couldn't ask for a better location. The room I had was comfortable, clean and charming. The owners were attentive to my needs and provided assistance with travle arrangements the next day. Perhaps the most outstanding feature was the spectacular view of this little city and its valley. Breakfast was great in a very cosy dining area that overlooked the wonderful gardens. Yes, it's worth a visit.

I don't agree at all with the previous review. It is not the cheapest hosteria but you pay for quality (unlike many other places I've been to). The location is beautiful & most rooms have spectacular views of the valley below. It is very quiet & relaxing, good to get your energy back. The staff is extremely friendly. My partner got ill during our stay there & the staff kept preparing teas & chamomile for her. As we had to leave the next day & get a bus back to Riobamba, the staff offered to take us there by car, so our journey would be easier. I tried to give them a tip but they wouldn't take it. The bathroom has a tub, which is good if you want to chill out & have a hot bath, & breakfast is quite good. If you want peace, comfort & friendly staff, this is the perfect place.

Room Tip: Perfect for a romantic retreat for couples

We were pretty excited about our stay in Alausi at the Hosteria La Quinta. But for $87/night for 2 adults and 1 child we were very disappointed. The Hosteria has it's charm and character of an old Hacienda, but in this case it meant none of the doors closed properly in our room. It was a major battle to close the door into our room and forget about closing the bathroom door. It's cold in Alausi and not having any heat in the room and the best we could get was warm water in the shower it meant spending time huddled in your bed to stay warm. The location is quiet which is a plus but far too much else was missing in this high priced accomodation. The breakfast that is provided was reasonable however not enough to justify the price and the shortage of essential services. We had planned to stay 2 nights here, but left after the first night.
