Casa Blanca Hotel, Banos.
Casa Blanca Hotel, Banos Tungurahua.
This is a nice hotel located just two blocks away from Banos main Bus Station commonly know as, El Terminal de Banos. Hotel Casa Blanca is easy to spot since it is a 4 stories building with capacity for over 80 guests.
Hotel Casa Blanca Banos
The administrator Ms. Mariela Reyes is very kind and friendly with tourists since she holds a degree in Tourism Administration she knows how to treat theri customers to the top of their spectations.
Casa Blanca Hotel looks clean and neat, they offer healthy breakfasts and a nice and cheap souveniers shop next to the hotel main door. Personally I like the Spa with covered pool and the quiet rooms, some of them offering a nice view of the city and the Tungurahua volcano depending on the weather conditions. Staying at Casa Blanca Hotel can be a very rewarding experience for your pocket too, since they can suit a big variety of budgets.
Reliable Administration. The administration of the hotel takes special care about the hotel safety and keeping a relaxed and quiet environment, helping you to enjoy a nice experience, the hotel owners and administrators are a local family that has lived in Banos city for several decades so they are honest people you can trust, think of an emergency or with your persnal belongings or special needs.
The Hotel location:
This is something I loved, it is close to all the ammenities while still sitting in a safe and quiet block, the hotel is big enough so there it never gets crowded or too busy.

La Posada del Arte Hostel.
Our hostel is also a showcase for Ecuadorian painters. We have over 50 works, including several masters as Witman Walsaqui, Alberto Soriano, Galo Chavez, and Jose Sanchez. We also represent local Baños artist Jaime Perez. The presence of these fine works sets the tone for the overall ambiance, which, according to comments by our guests, is tasteful, friendly and cozy.
Our sala encourages guests to relax, read, listen to music, or enjoy a crackling fire. From among the plants beneath the third floor skylight can be heard the gentle rush of the waterfall, which tumbles from the mountains just a half block away.

Monte Real Hostel in Baños
Hostal Monte Real is located in a quiet and area but but just three blocks away from the main city street. We visited this place and we found it to be quiet, very clean and the Hostel owner is fluent in English that simple fact is a plus if you are not familiar with Spanish language yet.
There is a nice ecological area with an exciting view of the city surrounded by birds and flowers just a 25 minutes walk from the Monte Real Hostel, and it is called “La cruz”. About attractions, well you maybe already know that, the city itself is one of the top destinations of Ecuador.A lot people enjoy watching the active volcano at night as well from this place you can find a nice watching spot too.
Hostal Monte Real is a quiet place very comfortable above the average services offered by the same hostels sharing category with them. Certainly another good option to stay without breaking the bank. if you are traveling in a Budget just give them a call or contact them to their e-mail address and book them in advance.
We liked the fact that the hostel is very clean and simple, despite the house was not built to accommodate guests as you can see in the pictures it has been rebuilt to offer comfort to tourists offering a real South American home-staying experience to their guests.
