When I was studying abroad in college, this place would have fit my needs pretty well I think. For a young married couple, this wasn't the best.

My husband and I booked a "double room" which was noted for having a "queen bed." When we were shown our room, it had a small "full size" bed and a twin bed. We decided to suck it up and pay the extra $40/night for the suite because it had a queen size bed.

The bed itself was fine, but I feel that it is way over priced for what it is. The room was furnished with cheaper-than-ikea furniture (I happen to like Ikea btw). The shower was oddly in the middle of the room, not privacy. The sink leaked, so there was always a puddle on the ground. The small fridge was very loud. Maintenance hung out side our window talking for long long periods of time (not a big deal, except we have to keep the windows open or it gets too hot).

They have 2 suites. Our suite was next to the maid/maintenance room. We would awake very early to loud banging as the employees were moving and getting things out of the room.

The suites aren't located in the cute area of the hotel. They are off to the side in an undesirable location.

Breakfast was decent, but nothing special. they should maybe consider opening the breakfast 30 minutes earlier so people can start their day exploring.

Basically, we paid "nice hotel" prices for a mediocre hostal.

We didn't have a terrible experience, but if in Banos again I would find elsewhere to stay,

I just got back from Baños and stayed at this hotel. It is at a great location, walking distance to the center. The service is pretty good, although I did have issues with flickering light at room and I told them and it was not fixed. It was not a major issue and i didn't follow up. Rooms were comfortable and it was nice to have a hammock in our balcony. Not all rooms have them but you can find different common areas that do have them if you wish. Continental breakfast incl.

Looks different than the pictures in the sites and is actually larger than expected. Has nice internal garden, serves decent breakfast with a delicious selection of fresh fruit and is generally a nice, yet a bit anonymous place (not necessarily a bad thing). Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with excellent wifi.
The fact that it is not directly in the city center, but a couple of blocks away (close to schools), makes it more charming as the center is busier and mostly filled with hostels. If you get a room in the back building, there is no issue with the noise from the schools. Our room was very quiet.

Room Tip: rooms away from the street, in the back building
