Quisiera hacer un reconocimiento a la excelente atención, servicio y hospitalidad del personal del hotel, pero muy enfáticamente de la señora Gabriela Logroño.



“Historic, cuban like moment in Ecuador”

Ciudad de Luxemburgo, Luxemburgo

Already to the road to this mystic place is … bumpy. And then when entering under the enormous trees and seeing the Hacienda at the far end of the alley, is a magic moment, like you only have a few in lifetime. We had a good lunch, on the high end of what you expect in ecuador, but the place itself, it’s history, the free visit of the garden make it an unforgettable moment on your journey from Quito to wherever you are heading down south…

Dripping with history plus utterly delightful staff”

This was a truly unique and beautiful place to lay our heads after an exhausting and exhilarating trip up the nearby Cotopaxi volcano… A stunning approach up a long sweeping drive and you are greeted by four warm staff, wreathed in smiles and immediately taking our bags and showing us up to our wonderful (set of!) rooms. They also knew our names already which was a lovely touch – they’d taken the time to work out who was arriving. Our two rooms were incredible – we had the main suite with beautiful views on to the front and back of the hotel, with its blissfully laid out and well-kept gardens – complete with hummingbirds buzzing around which you could watch from the inside while sitting in front of the wood-burning stove and sipping a fennel tea. There are wonderful paintings and sculptures everywhere and the hacienda offers an immaculate restaurant with a delicious lunch, dinner and breakfast menu. My sister was unfortunately very ill the next morning with gastric issues and the wonderful staff didn’t hesitate to organise a trip to the doctor and also loaded us up with oregano tea for our onward journey. Even poorliness didn’t take the shine off our experience. Unforgettable!


A magical place you’ll remember forever!

During a two week trip to Ecuador, we spent two separate nights at this great hotel. It positioned us well for treks up Cotapaxi and down Quilatoa. Both were amazing experiences. At the hacienda, we were treated to excellent service, great food, and on one of the evenings traditional live Andean music.

We were here for lunch with our family and some friends. The Hacienda is really well maintained though some details need to be fixed. The food was good and the service excellent. The driveway is stunning and it seems to take you to another time.

Este casarão com mais de 300 anos virou um hotel e com restaurante aberto ao público. Tudo lindo e cheio de histórias …. fomos em uma almoço de negócios e realmente um lugar sem igual. Comida muito bem feita, saborosa e com ótimo atendimento. A entrada para a alameda em frente do casarão é algo magnífico assim como o jardim no interior do hotel. Tudo lindo.

Confortable y bello lugar para aventureros familiares que gustan del estilo de lugares que guardan historias antiguas y tradiciones. Habitaciones cómodas y limpias, espacios agradables para lectura, perfecto para alojarse e ir de excursión a Quilotoa. Historia antigua del lugar y la familia propietaria de la Hacienda reflejada en fotografías en sus pasillos…


“Grand hacienda in a tranquil setting”

Melbourne, Australia

This old hacienda is a step back in time and well worth the detour (and expense) for the budget conscious traveller. We spent a single night there and the room, building and grounds were well kept and like being in a museum.

The meals were quite good but simple.

An amazing property with incredible history that seems to ramble on forever. The central garden is beautiful and artisans can be found working in the back courtyard.Our dinner was delicious and the service made us feel like we were in a 4 store hotel. The room was large and very comfortable.

Frankfurt, Alemania

Auf der Durchreise Stop in dieser Hacienda: allein schon die Einfahrts- Allee und der Garten waren sehenswert. Obwohl wir keine Hotelgäste waren und nichts verzehrten war das Hotelpersonal äusserst freundlich und wir bekamen eine informative Führung durch die ganze Anlage inclusive der Suite, die von Humboldt bewohnte.

“Wonderful Family Lunch”

Diciembre de 2016


Nueva York, Estado de Nueva York

Had the pleasure of visiting Hacienda La Cienega for lunch. Firstly, the drive way as you enter is absolutely stunning with huge Eucalyptus Trees which leads to the main house. We were seated at a nice table and were greeted warmly by the staff. The waitress that took care of us was very nice and caring and it was impressive that she had been there for 25 years. The food was amazing, I had the Avocado with Shrimp as a starter and it was delicious. For the main course I had Corvina with Seafood which was prepared in an aluminum foil packet. All of the flavors from the food were great.  Having great food in a beautiful setting along with excellent customer service makes for a great time. The only regret is that we could not stay longer.   travel to Ecuador frequently so I hope to be back.


“Beutiful 300yr old hotel”

Toronto, Canadá

This beautiful hacienda is located perfect between Cotopaxi and Quilotoa, so if you are for a tour to visit Cotopaxi National park and the next day you want to see the Quilotoa laguna in the crater this spot is a perfect choice. A little bit pricy but you have a charm hotel with a lot of history behind, very helpful people and nice surroundings. The wi-fi is not super and can be used only around the reception, so that would be my only concern

Turín, Italia

Se non temete di addentrarvi in un paesino povero, ai piedi dello splendido vulcano Cotopaxi, se non temete di dormire in una casa fredda come un castello scozzese, allora non perdetevi questa hacienda che vi incanterà con la sua atmosfera piena di fascino e storia. Saloni con vasi enormi colmi di rose fresche, pianoforte e camini accesi, ottima cena e ricca colazione. Poca vita notturna nella location ma cosa importa se in camera ti aspetta un bel fuoco scoppiettante nel grande camino?

Eine Übernachtung in der Hacienda La Cienega ist ein Erlebnis: man kann den Stil eines vergangenen Jahrhunderts im Original, aber mit gutem Komfort, genießen. Die Küche und Service sind sehr gut. Der Garten mit Kolibris ist ein Kleinod. – WiFi nur in der Veranda.



Diciembre de 2016


Cerdeña, Italia

Premetto che la struttura è molto antica e sicuramente necessiterebbe di qualche lavoro di restauro, ma l’atmosfera che si respira risulta essere magica. Io ci ho pernottato un giorno nel mese di novembre, in occasione della visita al Cotopaxi e della Laguna di Quilotoa, e devo dire che mi è piaciuto. Vi consiglio di farvi un giretto in tutta la tenuta, magari di primo mattino con le prime luci dell’alba, per apprezzarne meglio i giardini, i lama e gli alpaca presenti nel viale di ingresso. Questa la mia recensione: STRUTTURA  L’hotel è ubicato in mezzo alla campagna ecuadoriana. L’ingresso non è dei migliori per via delle case e della strada sterrata con parecchi buchi. Il viale di ingresso è molto ampio e scenografico. L’hacienda ha due livelli, ma la gran parte delle camere si trova al piano terra. Da visitare la piccola chiesetta posta all’interno del giardino. CAMERA  Io ho avuto la camera nr. 29, una matrimoniale con l’aggiunta di 2 letti singoli (non richiesti). La camera, al piano terra, è veramente ampissima: un appartamento! Nella stanza è presente un caminetto con candele a disposizione, e 3 termosifoni elettrici. Insomma non c’è pericolo di aver freddo: molto gentilmente il personale ci ha riscaldato la stanza prima del nostro arrivo. Ottimo servizio! Cioccolatino sul cuscino di benvenuto e acqua imbottigliata a disposizione. Ampio e comodo letto (un po’ da rivedere il materasso), coperte e cuscini a volontà. A disposizione anche termoforo. La vista è sui giardini. Le tende non sono perfettamente coprenti ma si dorme bene anche perché la zona è silenziosa. Nella stanza pure un divano, poltrone, sedie e tavolino. L’impianto elettrico non è certo moderno, come tutto il resto, ma pare sicuro. Nessuna tv ma non se ne sente il bisogno, visto il tipo di albergo.Il bagno è veramente grande: vasca con passamano e telo doccia. Ampio lavabo e specchiera, phon a disposizione. Per l’acqua calda occorre attendere un pochino (ma c’è apposito cartello di avviso) ma perché l’hacienda è veramente grande e necessita di piu’ tempo. Pressione e temperatura dell’acqua ottima, nessun problema! Gli amenities sono tantissimi: saponi e bagnoschiuma, alcuni prodotti fatti con erbe locali. Asciugamani di ottima qualita’ PREZZO E SERVIZI OFFERTI Noi abbiamo speso USD 86 a testa formula mezza pensione. Non è economico ma il servizio è stato ottimo, sia per la qualita’ e quantita’della cena (prodotti tipici) che per la colazione (prevalentemente americana). Il servizio è sempre al tavolo non a buffet. Il wi-fi è disponibile solo in alcune aree. Nella nostra stanza (vista la distanza) non funzionava correttamente. La pulizia è ottima. Il personale è molto gentile.

Nos quedamos solo una noche porque estábamos de paso y buscábamos algo especial. En la hacienda se celebraba una boda, pero en recepción nos buscaron una habitación calma para que el ruido no nos molestara y fue perfecto.

El lugar es precioso porque parece que revivas siglos pasados y todo el personal atento y agradable. Las habitaciones son grandes y un poco frías porque es una construcción antigua, pero el staff se preocupa por tu comodidad y te ofrecen todos los calefactores y mantas necesarias para tu confort. Desayuno correcto en un espacio agradable mirando al jardín. No probamos el restaurante. Un buen recuerdo.

We could again expierence a big authentique room. We got as well a room with connecting doors. This gives added value to us as a family. A nice fireplace was warming up our room. I would have like it a little warmer to take a shower but I guess that is part of staying in haciënda’s. The garden was beautiful.


“Un rincón excelente para relajarse y disfrutar de su gastronomía”

Octubre de 2016


Barcelona, Spain

Si a la excelente comida que se puede degustar en La Ciénaga le añadimos el entorno cargado de historia que la rodea nos envolverá una sensación excelente de paz y satisfacción a la vez.. Recorrer sus salones cargados de muebles y fotografías que nos transportan a un elegante pasado, pasear pos sus jardines, penetrar en la iglesia y saborear luego sus manjares con tranquilidad hace que la Hacienda la Ciénaga sea un espacio único en Lasso, no lejos de Riobamba. A todo ello habrá que añadir la amabilidad del personal, en especial del camarero que nos atendió. Gracias !!!.

On fait un merveilleux saut dans l’histoire en arrivant dans cette magnifique hacienda! Un joli jardin avec une fontaine et une très belle chapelle vous invite au repos.Les chambres sont immenses, confortables avec de beaux meubles anciens, une cheminée, (on nous a allumé un feu le soir, c’était fabuleux!) Les propriétaires ont su garder l’âme de ce lieu magique. Nous y avons aussi très bien diné, au coin du feu!


“Beautiful Hacienda Close to Cotopaxi”

Octubre de 2016


Estambul, Turquía

La Cienega was a beautiful hacienda more than 300 years old. The hotel was very close to Cotopaxi Volcano and to the rose plantations. The hotel interiors were kept in original decoration. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The firespace in the room was working and it was effectively the main heater in the room. The food during dinner and lunch was traditional and delicious. Free wifi was working properly.


“Dream like hotel”

Octubre de 2016


Toronto, Canadá

When we approached the entrance of this hotel, it was as if this was a set from a romantic old movie. The long driveway was lined with eucalyptus trees. The hotel building was a grand old mansion from 1742. You could even visit their own chapel anytime of the day, the chapel itself was large and elaborate with pulpit and loft. We had a good size room and huge windows on two sides, but I must say the bathroom was a little small. Food in the restaurant was only average and expensive, but I guess we had to pay for the atmosphere and ambience of this very enchanted mansion too. They also put a small hot pad in your bed to keep you warm at night. I love it.

Beausoleil, Francia

extra-ordinaire cet hôtel dans une hacienda! beau parc quand on arrive, on se croit dans un château. Une chambre géante avec une hauteur rare, et une cheminée qu’on vous allume avec rapidité! un restaurant où l’on mange bien. Une demeure avec jardin intérieur et même chapelle, bref cela un charme fou et dépaysant, il faut le vivre.


“Classic establishment ”

Octubre de 2016


Londres, Reino Unido

A welcome change from your big business hotel in Quito. This place had a great deal of character and feels like it has many stories to tell. The rooms were large and spacious, the restaurant staff very kind and friendly despite either of us not being fluent. Things like wifi and hot water a little temperamental but to be expected in a building of this age. Recommended.


“Hermosa hacienda”

Septiembre de 2016


Loja, Ecuador

Es una hacienda hermosa, llena de historia, con una capilla incluida, cerca al volcán Cotopaxi y en una zona segura. El personal es muy atento y amable, la comida es exquisita, la carne muy buena y los baños limpios y amplios. Los postres son espectaculares sobre todo los helados de paila hecho ahí mismo y el pastel de chocolate casero. Tiene un jardín con pileta Hermoso, además de contar con una entrada imponente llena de eucaliptos de 300 años aproximadamente. Amplio parqueadero y muy buen lugar para comer antes o después de visitar el volcán Cotopaxi.
