Extremely friendly and helpful staff. They definitely saved us some big headaches.

They truly have an outstanding client service. I traveled with my wife. I drove to Banos from Cuenca and when mentioned the parking situation to the owner of the Hotel (it is hard to find parking in Banos during the Holidays), he gently offered to keep my car in his own home (because I said I was not going to use it while in Banos). He returned the keys to me the same day and brought the car back the night before I left because I was leaving early in the morning. The breakfast was delicious and always served on warm and on time.

Keep in mind that Banos is not a town where you are supposed to stay inside a hotel at all times. For adventurous travelers that want a safe, helpful and clean place, they should consider this hotel.

Flor de Oriente was VERY clean. Our room was cleaned every day.

The location of the hotel could not be more ideal, you have easy access to restaurant and bars, banks, travel agencies for activities around Banos, easy access to transportation, and the market.

We stayed in a room on the back of the hotel, we did not have a good view but it was quiet at night. They offered to move us to the front of the hotel to have a better view but also let us know that it would be louder at night. We opted for the quiet place. The room was small but my wife and I traveled with only one suitcase and one backpack so were able to easily accommodate our belonging in the room. We didn't really care about the small size of the room because we came back only to nap or sleep safely at night.

I would highly recommend this hotel for cleanliness, outstanding staff, great location, and good breakfast.

Stayed: December 2017

We stayed two nights at the Flor de Oriente for its convenient location. We were there during the week and were able to get the second floor corner room with the balcony overlooking two streets. It was great to sit outside and just people-watch (although I imagine it could be noisy on the weekend). The room itself was tiny and very simple with small double bed but the shower had hot water (after a couple minutes) and was fine for the price. The 24-hour staff was always friendly. The best surprise was the excellent breakfast (eggs made to order) in the pretty restaurant on the second floor, with very pleasant staff. The location was terrific and we could walk to the bus station, tour companies and plenty of restaurants. Highly recommend for a budget hotel!

Room Tip: Second floor corner room has balcony facing two streets.

I went to Banos for two night with friends. Went to a few hotels this was the best for the price. It cost $22.5 per night for a room to myself. Room was clean and has towels and shampoo. Had fast wifi, Tv and free parking. The staff were by far the most helpful I have come across in the last two weeks in Ecuador. They gave us best places to eat and drink. They told us the best place to visit and roughy cost.

Breakfast was included coffee or tea had fruit and eggs and bacon from breakfast.

I will stay there again next time I am there.

Friendly staff, convenient location, and comfortable rooms made my stay in Banos a pleasant one. Breakfast served in a cute restaurant, always with a smile. Management of this hotel goes above and beyond to make clients happy. I will stay here any time I visit in the future....left quite the positive impression!

Nice location. Good breakfast. But hot water was not really hot. And a little bit noisy in the night if you go with kids. However, Baños is a magical place and hotel is not bad for that price. There are some other hotels with special prices if you travel in weekdays.
