Great deal for world-class food and simple, clean accommodations. Arty, comfortable vibe and cool, international-savvy owners who are knowledgeable about the area. Absolutely relaxing and the meals (breakfast & dinner) are so good and satisfying you don't even feel like leaving the hotel. Would go back in a heartbeat....and I will.

We had no reservations in Banos and pulled up outside in our rental car to find a beautiful old house with a shaded, walled yard. Daniella was sweet, friendly and welcoming when we came in and we felt so relaxed and very much at home right away. The rooms are basic but clean, clean, clean.... good beds. Ours had a...

It is located in a safe and quiet area of Baños, close to the city´s waterfall. The house has a nice garden and a cozy balcony. The food is good and may surprise you. The staff is really nice.

Very clean rooms, incredible service by the Colombian-Swiss manager. The breakfast was definitely a cut above - homemade bread, jams, juice from fruit grown on trees in the front yard - all served with a friendly, casual warmth. Great location in Banos and the manager gave us inside information on activities and tour companies in Banos. Highly recommend!

It really is as good as all the other reviews say. The stylish mansion, the lovely breakfast, the food... But most of all it's the young owners entousiasm and willingness to help you enjoy your stay that sets this place apart. We had friends stay at a very posh [and expensive!] hotel in the area who were very dissapointed with...

I had a great weekend staying here. Rodrigo's food is fantastic! It must be the best food in Baños and a welcome change. A wonderful way to spend time here in the evening with a fire in the garden and watch your food being prepared. It was wonderfully cosy place and only a stone's throw from the thermal baths with...

“If you decide you must stay here, request a room in the back. There is a lovely view of the cascade, but other guest houses have the same view!”
