Avenue of the Volcanoes: Mansion Santa Isabella

Mansion Santa Isabella

Mansión Santa Isabela is on a quiet street in the centre of the busy market town of Riobamba, two blocks from the railway station. The location is great for walks around the historic centre and to the volcano viewpoint at Lomo de Quito. 

It's an agreeable, friendly little hotel in a homely converted colonial residence, offering 11 themed rooms named after the plants and herbs of Ecuador. It’s a little too simple to be described as a boutique hotel, but that is part of its charm. 

The overall feel is uncluttered, but you’ll find lovely hardwood furniture and discreet Ecuadorian motifs dotted around. Each room is individually appointed with an eclectic mix of styles ranging from the colonial to the contemporary.

The simple restaurant offers a buffet breakfast and an Ecuadorian fusion menu. Beneath the property is an underground tunnel and caves which originally connected churches and monasteries – inside there's a little bar, where you can sip a cocktail alongside a plateful of tapas.
