Initially, my girlfriend wasn't very pleased with me as we had to walk up the hillside but eventually liked the place for what it was. The Casa Amarilla guesthouse is located on the hillside just above Banos and the big advantage you have with staying in this place is that it's quiet away from the street noises, you have a... More

Left here feeling as though I had friends I could visit here in Banos as opposed to just another hotel to stay at. Great service, good rates and an amazing view! Accommodations are not as modern as your typical hotel but are amazing considering you are half way up a mountainside. They even have free WiFi! The walk up the... More

If you are up to a 15 minute hike up the hill you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of Banos lights. The owners treated us like family and were very accommodating. They had a nice menu and one night after we ordered , Fredy disappeared....he had gone to town to get a missing ingredient!

We booked La Casa Amarilla when we arrived in Baños, although we could have read the fine print better. As we started to make our way up to the home, we were unsure how far up we needed to hike (about 20 minutes) and had to ask some locals for directions. The gardener ended up helping us find the place,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. My husband was skeptical at first because from the town it looks really far up but once we got there he was quickly won over by the cozy room and the views. The owners were friendly and helpful but also gave us lots of privacy and space. Breakfast was filling and we were told... More

Hosts are helpful and nice. They don't speak English but it was no problem. Nice room, hot shower always available. Getting to the property is a 10-minute hike but the tranquility and view is worth it.

Location is amazing. With a view of Baños and the mountains around it, however for the price the rooms were ordinary and it is inconvenient to reach especially in the rain. The service and people were amazing and very helpful, always willing to help us come up or down and make sure we were comfortable.

Casa Amarilla is an excellent lodging option in Banos located in the woods just above the city. It´s a 10-15 minute walk uphill from the edge of the town and inaccessible by car. Service is great and the views are incredible, and it´s great being in such a peaceful location yet a short walk from the town. The fact that... More

Because of the fantastic references, we decided to go to Casa Amarillo. We had an heavy suitcase with us and expected that there was an horse to pick us up. But there was no horse at all.
