I am from the USA and have traveled much of Ecuador and lived in hostels and hotels from the beaches to the high mountains for almost a year now. I have been looking for a city to live in that is not to cold and not hot. Riobamba is it. I have found a condo that I am going to...

The hotel is a very charming place. It resembles the Spanish houses with a beautiful courtyard in the centre. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit small but recently renovated. It is also in the centre of the city close to the markets and plazas.

The family and I decided to give this hotel a try after seeing a recommendation in the Frommers Ecuador travel guide. My wife called ahead and specifically asked for a 2 single beds for the kids in addition to the main bed. On arrival the guy at reception said he knew nothing about it and gave that room away. The...

We stayed only for one night and were not very happy. Rooms are outdated with a lot of noise from lobby and street, bed was squeaking, shower curtain was covered with mould and toilet was leaking. We payed 37USD for 1 night incl. breakfast (which only was coffee/tea, bread, butter and jam and juice, no eggs), which seems a bit...

I stayed here on two separate occasions, both of which I walked in without a reservation. You walk into the hotel and step into a beautiful courtyard that is surrounded by comfortable, quiet rooms. From the minute I stepped into the hotel, the staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. They can help you arrange tours to Chimborazo, give you information...

We happened to become ill from some food (unrelated to the hotel) and the staff were very willing to help us in any way they could - calling doctors, translating, preparing meals, picking up medication, and checking in with us. True hospitality and genuine care. We loved our stay, the staff, the food, and the rooms. Great place!

We spent five nights in the Montecarlo, using it as a base to visit Riobamba and elsewhere (including Chimborazo and Salinas). The hotel was fantastically located, cheerful and well-furnished (luxurious bed linen and towels); the bathrooms were convenient with lots of hot water, and the staff were helpful. The breakfast, in the cafe next door, was excellent quality, although on...

This is a clean, basic hotel with a good location - right in the center of the downtown. We stayed here two nights - on the way to Cuenca from Quito by bus and on the way back through. It is quiet, secure, and offers a computer with free high speed Internet in the lobby. There is a restaurant next...

This hotel is not luxury by any means. But the rooms are clean and although they are slightly smelly and have horrible lighting- they are decent. Be wary of the water- it is scalding and very uncomfortable. Make sure they have your reservation, because they didn't have ours even though we made one. Overall pretty good value. The breakfast in...
