This pleasant country-style inn, housed in a pretty whitewashed building, offers splendid accommodations, attentive service, and great dining. Decorated in a mestizo (mixed) architectural style, as the owners like to call it, the warm, spacious rooms -- most have fireplaces -- show a mix of decor and design influences, relying heavily on Spanish colonial and local Ecuadorean styles. The walls around the hotel are adorned with antique photographs of the breathtaking regional landscape. Located on the outskirts of Riobamba along the road to Guano, this is the perfect spot to relax away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to explore the town and take advantage of all the local tours and activities. The friendly tour desk here will happily help you plan excursions.
