Pros: The staff at Achik Wasi will truly go out of their way for guests! Couldn’t have imagined staying anywhere else in Saraguro - truly the best place in town.
Pros: Comfortable bed, great views from the bedroom.
Cons: Pricey for the room and breakfast they offer.
Pros: The food was good
Pros: Perfect fly my purposes. For those demanding luxury they would not like it. This in integrated into the surroundings.it feels very special as if you are not imposing on Saraguro culture.If walking is difficult a taxi will cost 1 dollar into town
Cons: Saraguro is high up in mountains. It gets cold at night and there is no heating in rooms. Do I put warm clothes on and read
Pros: We stayed here because first of all it’s the only place I could find where I could make an advance reservation online. But apparently there are four hostels in the actual town. We also stayed here to support community tourism and because the hotel is connected to the home stay we had arranged for the next day. We got in after dark, around 7:30 PM. The hotel is up on a hill outside of town and there’s no restaurants or anything nearby so it’s kind of inconvenient. We were too tired to deal with looking for food so we just went to bed. The staff kindly provided us with some hot tea. It was really cold up there. The room was made of cement walls so it was pretty chilly. Breakfast was the same as most places in Ecuador, a little scrambled egg, a stale bun, juice, a little bit of cereal, fruit salad, yogurt. Oh and don’t forget the instant Nescafé LOL. But our room was clean and the place was secure.
Cons: At $48 a night I thought the price was outrageous. It’s the most expensive place we stayed at while in Ecuador by a long shot. The only upside of that is that the money goes back into the community. The location is also pretty inconvenient.
Pros: The views were good.
Cons: We were very disappointed in several aspects of our stay including the bed being very, very hard with sheets that did not fit, no hot water in a cold village at 2,500m elevation, poor breakfasts and included dinners (we chose not to have the included dinner after the first night), meals in a very cold dining room, no lighting on external paths etc. However we were most disappointed in the fact that it was impossible to get any cultural information from the hotel including about a festival happening during our stay. We found out about it the day after. We visited the village to learn about the culture and the festival would have been a great way to do this. With no access to cultural information, there seemed to be no reason to go there.
Cons: overpriced, didnt underestand why they charged soooo much, we paid the same price for 5 star in Guayaquil
Pros: Nice view and setting (if you don't want to go anywhere). The included Breakfast was excellent. My room had a wardrobe.
Cons: Up a long, steep hill several 100 metres from town centre. No Lunch or Dinner option at the hotel (when I was there) so I had to keep walking up and down the long, steep hill... My room was cold and dark. My heater didn't throw out any heat. My toilet didn't flush properly - I had to fix it. My TV was covered in 'snow' - I had to fix the cabling. The cable TV had NO English Speaking channels. The wifi was frustrating and kept running out. Every day I had to go to reception to ask for a new Username and Password. The ‘hot water’ shower had hot water that lasted just long enough to fool you into jumping in and getting wet. After that, it struggled to reach the definition of ‘warm’. No wifi signal in the restaurant.
Pros: Situated on a hill looking over the town with spectacular views but only 5-10 minute walk to town center, room was charming, clean and comfortable and the staff was extremely nice and accommodating. They even drew me a map to walk to the nearby Baños del Inca (highly recommend going).
Cons: Wifi was a bit difficult to connect to
Pros: Friendly staff, good breakfast, having an en-suite, attractive building with good views
Cons: The location (up on a steep hill overlooking the town) surprised me as it had been described as central
Pros: Very helpful staff, quiet location in town, close enough to walk to the central plaza, the market, and restaurants in town. Despite the steep hill, it was easy to find a taxi to take back up to the hostel if we decided not to walk. And we found alternate ways to walk back to lessen the impact on our legs and lungs! It was great being able to explore the neighborhood around the hostel.
Cons: As writers, we have to spend some time working and it is nice to have an option other than our room. Unfortunately, the internet in the restaurant was very poor and would not reach the lower levels. Furthermore, I would have loved an outdoor sitting area. There is a lovely garden but no way to sit and enjoy it. Also, a bench outside of reception would make a nice place to wait for guides and taxis. Last, the beds are VERY firm... likely because they rely on wood slats for support. It might be time to invest in box springs.
