8/10 Very good

Great location, limited amenities
The hotel is situated in an excellent location. The view from my bed faced the cathedral. Staff was limited in communication. No one shared with us the special activities or food options the hotel offered or what the local establishments offered. The hot water was a hit or miss. I was able to deal with the low pressure but not the cold shower. The bedroom was cold at times. Blankets and Towels were scarce. My friend slipped on the wet floor after a shower. No towel for the floor.

2/10 Poor

I will be requesting my money back from Expedia for this visit for both rooms 207/208 ! No hot water in shower , only scolding hot water in the sink . The 3 rd floor is the party floor and the noise from above and in the hallways was horrible ! The staff was nice due to the horrible conditions . 95 perfect of the customers were 20 to 30 year old hippies which I don’t mind . There was no air conditioning in room so it was hot until approx 3 am and then cold after that !

Selina Baños, in a few words has become a Party Hotel, at least in the weekends. Let's be real I'm 24 and if I didn't have anything better to do the next day I would be partying too, but that is not always the case when traveling. The biggest mistake by the hotel is not letting us know that on Friday the party goes on until 1 am (at least now with Covid, maybe later in normal times) and after that the whole party moves to the street in front and even to the hallway. The bar on the rooftop is simply enough a functional discotheque and affects the rest of the hotel installations. Another big no for us are the rooms, which are not the cleanest, taking into account that a family room is a lot more expensive than de bunk bed rooms ($163 x 2 nights) we were expecting much more. The cleaning service came knocking at 4pm when we were resting from a busy morning, after the party Friday we understood that maybe most of the clients wake up with a hangover; the beds are all single, pretty hard and you just get a linen and a thin blanket (granted Baños isn't cold but it could be better, again for the price). Again, if I had known that it was such a party place I would have booked another. But the only information was that there was a open bar from 9pm to 10 pm and then they were going away in a Party Bus (this seems reasonable), I think they just expect you to take part of the activities. Another extra for Covid times is that no one seems to wear a face masc, or any other safety measure

we came to a Selina hotel because I had heard they were a few steps above the average hostels. Room was clean and space was cute. However the bed broke middle of the night (when we were quite literally just sleeping, no other funny business) and we had to change rooms. The other room had a way less comfortable bed that felt like a rock. We messaged on the Selina help and asked for a refund since the room was an obvious downgrade but they were not helpful. Like other reviews mentioned it was incredibly loud (and flip cup was being played / screaming occurred until 11 pm), and the concierge gave no information when I asked general questions about baños.

4/10 Fair

The property looks nice from outside, inside as well, organized and well maintained. The staff is friendly and the check in process is simple and fast. The location is very convenient since it's close to all the restaurants and tour agencies. There's no parking on site but they have an arrangement with a private parking lot for 5 dollars a night, but, since it's not always open you can't take out or leave your car anytime you want, also the 5$ will only get you 8pm to next day, if you want to park any other time in the day (if it's open) it will be 1$ per hour or fraction. Now all that being said let's discuss the rooms. The rooms would be nice if they were clean! I mean you have enough space, a table, a small closet and a full bathroom. But the curtains are so dirty (from being a bit too long and dragging on the floor, the mattress cover is stained beyond belief, the room we got(me and my wife) had a window with a street light (LED lights) RIGHT OUTSIDE! WITH NO BLACKOUT CURTAINS! It was so bad that at 2am the whole window would be bright as if it was 2pm. And last, but not least, the shower curtain, besides being ripped in some parts, HAD MOLD EVERYWHERE!!! I mean black spots all over it, so much we almost wouldn't dare to touch it. I would not recommend staying here, I landed there using my Expedia points but even at almost no cost to me it proved to be a bad experience overall.

It was ok. For the paid rate there could be better hotels around that even included parking. The bed was waaaay too hard. Coming back to banos i will look for another hotel for the same rate that has parking a Pool for sure.
