“Good location, inexpensive but not too clean”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

I had a room facing the main street of town which was a little noisy. The room was surely big enough for USD 15 per night. Only downside was that the bathroom was not too clean.

Reviewed 31 January 2012

We booked just one night at the Hotel el Libertador, and ended up staying three nights more. Ok its not flashy, but it is very clean, most rooms are quite spacious, very light, airy, and great value for money. There are marble? tiles in the entrance ways so it does look welcoming upon arrival

If you want a better night sleep, certainly inspect a room that is not facing the street - no doubt this would be quite noisy at night. We chose room 25, yes it's up three floors but great exercise at altitude! Note That there are also some rooms that don't have windows, and I could not recommend those...

There is no breakfast included in the rate, however at the really great cafe right next door there is a good breakfast for $2, also with a $2 almuerzo (lunch) and probably something similar for dinner...

We paid $25 per night. All in all excellent value.

Room Tip: If you want a better night sleep, certainly inspect a room that is not facing the busy main street...

Reviewed 7 February 2010

We stayed only one night at the Hotel Libertador as we did not get into town early enough to get a ticket for the Wednesday train. The Libertador was a clean hotel right across the street from the station and we had a balcony room that overlooked the station. No breakfast here like other places but the room with bath for two was only $36.

Reviewed 24 June 2009

The hotel is right across from the train station (to the Devil's Nose) and along the main strip in Riobamba with many shops, restaurants and bars. Rooms are inexpensive and although the facilities are pretty basic, the essentials are there - TV (a few channels are in English), phone in room, shower with hot and cold water and good water pressure, toilet with seat, wash basin. Cleanliness overall is acceptable. Hotel has a large atrium and clean hallways. Walk up - no elevators. Free Internet access (slow modem) from PC in lobby. Noise can be an issue - voices in the lobby and hallways carry up and down the atrium and local drivers have a tendency to honk at every opportunity - ask for a room away from the street if you are a light sleeper. Bottled water and coke can be purchased from the front desk. Hotel staff is friendly.
