À propos de ce logement
Welcome Home. Casa 1881 is a property from the late 1800s located at the very heart of the historic center of the city of Riobamba. Casa 1881 is considered to be a national architectural heritage site by our local authorities. Casa 1881 has 6 luxury rooms with private bathrooms (imported porcelain from Spain) individually decorated with modern amenities (queen or king size beds) and handpicked antiquities. Don't miss the opportunity to live a little part of the history of our city.
I want to be honest with you, It took me two years to rebuild Casa 1881 and I personally put emphasis on the little details, that’s why you are going to find commodities similar or superior to a 4 star hotel (remember that those kind of hotels here in Riobamba usually charge even up to 80 USD per night per room). So I want you to know that you are going to rest in a house filled with history and luxuries for a very competitive (actually cheap) price in the market. Don’t forget that you are going to be attended personally by me, just like If you where a good friend of mine.
Accès des voyageurs
You can access all the places in Casa 1881 but the other guest rooms and the kitchen are forbidden. I have a wine store where you can buy snacks or little details like a coffee, chocolate or wine. I offer a lunch or dinner for a fixed price (I´m a chef) with an open menu based on the use of local ingredients, mostly organic if available. Also I can provide you with a private cell phone for personal use at no extra charge.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I will personally attend you and your requirements, we will share some short trips (depends on my time) a cup of coffee or wine and maybe even a slice of cake (I like to bake). I like to share and chat, also I like to show to my guests about our culture and the beauty of my city while I learn from them. Privacy is a big deal for me, that’s why every room in my house is private so you can have your space and a proper rest.
The historic center of our city is filled with architectural masterpieces, restaurants, markets, parks, museums and many other things. All of this just by walking distance.
Full of public transportation like buses and taxis. Usually a taxi ride will take you from Casa 1881 to anywhere in the city for just 1.50 USD.
As you may know, the internet connection in Ecuador is pretty bad, but I have put special emphasis on this, that’s why I offer you the best internet available in the city with GPON connectivity and Netflix on each room (Apple TV and a 32 inch led is provided on each room). Also my beds are the best on the market so you will rest properly with a touch of luxury.
Just two rules, take care of this house like if it were yours with the same love and respect that you will find here. The second is that you are not allowed to smoke in any part of the house.
