La Andaluza Hostería
Occupying the green hills of Riobamba, the Andaluza Hosteria offers elegant, cozy accommodations in a converted country estate house. The rooms are characterized by hardwood floors, stone fireplaces, colonial-style wood furnishings and soft white bedding. They also feature satellite television, free Wi-Fi, heating for the cold mountain nights, and private bathrooms. The brick-red, burnt amber and brown tones of the decorations, combined with the abundance of natural light and Andean-themed artworks, create warm and cozy spaces.
The property's grounds contain extensive gardens and stone paths leading to the different buildings and to a soccer field and courts for basketball and volleyball. Also on the premises are a set of stables from which guests can explore the surrounding landscape by horseback. There is a game room where guests can play table tennis or other board games while enjoying a hot or cold drink from the adjoining bar. Tours can be organized to the Chimborazo Volcano and National Park, and to other sites of interest in the region.
