Reviewed 12 January 2014

You can't beat this place. I've been here 3 or 4 times now and the rooms are consistently clean, there's hot water, it's quiet and the breakfast is terrific. Get this. All this for about $35 which includes breakfast. Also, the location is perfect as it's on a quiet side street but it's only a five minute walk from the main plaza. Stay here. It's a wonderful place and a great value.

We stayed 3 nights in room Canela2 during New Year 2014. The location is fine, our room with waterfall view excellent, the patio/garden relaxing and a nice spot to enjoy breakfast if the weather is okay, the restaurant serves nice dinners with original dishes, the toilet was quickly repaired the same night, when we arrived at it turned out to be broken, but....if breakfast-time is busy,the waiting times may be a bit long (understaffed?) and my main critic is that if you run a place like this your guests must feel at home. But the landlady was not willing to start the day with a simple "good morning", even when she shared the patio with us as guests at breakfasttime in a swimsuit, I wished her a happy New Year when at midnight, when she was sitting out on the street to watch fireworks an bonfires, but a single nice word next day was evidently too much. That's not the way I like to be encountered as a guest.... Loudly being present in the restaurant room discussing issues with some, mostly American, guests while other guests want their own intimite dinner is not a professional management-style, if you run such a beautiful hostal. It is a sharp contrast: behaviour of the host and the potential of the best posada in Baños. And I don't like dogs in a restaurant.
Separate your private living from that of your guests or be gentle and polite to everyone. And leave the dog in your own house.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights. We really enjoyed that it was in a quiet part of town. Our room had a great view of the waterfall and was only a few steps away from the famous hot springs. The room was nice, clean, quiet, and the bed was very comfortable. For breakfast, you can choose anything on the breakfast menu. I tried the pancake (delicious) and my husband had Huevos Rancheros (delicious). The portions were huge and the coffee and juice were great as well. The seating areas outside made it feel like you were in paradise. The owners were very nice and accommodating. We felt like this was a pretty good deal for the location and great breakfast included. My only complaint is that the wifi didn't reach into our room, but, hey, we are sort of addicted. We only had to step outside of our door for full wifi signal.

What a great little place! My family and I stayed here for two nights over our Christmas holiday. For the location, the incredibly generous (included) breakfast, and the general ambiance, the price cannot be beat. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Blue House, and really enjoyed the little courtyard.

Lovely establishment with lots of nice seating areas. Restaurant exceptionally good, plenty of options for vegetarians. Lovely staff. I would have given this establishment a full score but for a few minor episodes. 1. Up early one morning and found ourselves totally locked in, couldn't leave via the courtyard (which had locked gates) or via the main building , also locked. ?? Potential fire hazard, and easily resolved ie : residents key for courtyard.
2. blue house accommodation had to enter and leave via kitchen area . Not very professional, easy to alter via door to lounge or via courtyard gate.
3. Owners conducting business meeting loudly one evening, a bit weird for guests.
I have added these points mostly for the owners so don't be put of as it is a fantastic , friendly and very clean establishment.

We wanted to stay here but they were full, and for good reason! Wonderful place! We had breakfast here and they showed us around Luke we were family! Great food and great setting! And a great view of the waterfall from the charming courtyard!

I planned on staying only one or two nights and ended up staying five. I could see the beautiful waterfall from my room and was only 100 yards from the thermal hot springs which I used every morning. This is a beautiful,well run hotel with friendly staff and owner and terrific food. It is located in a quiet section of town which is a big bonus on weekends in Banos.
