It's a solid hotel with good WiFi. Ask for a room that faces the back. The view isn't that great, but it's much quieter, as Ave 10 de Agosto can get loud, particularly on the weekend. It's not terrible, but the rooms in the back are a little more peaceful. If you're going to ride the train, check to see if it's running all the way to Riobamba. When I was there, it was departing from Alusi, so while I could buy my ticket at the train station across the street. I had to take a 3-hour bus to Alusi to ride it, and a bus back. While there's more to do in Riobamba than the train, I would have been better off, hitting Alusi on the way to/from Riobamba. It would have save a morning and evening bus ride. ...but obviously, that has no impact on the Hotel el Liberatodor, as it's a solid hotel.
