The hotel was built in 2000 with the purpose of being a meeting place for climbers and mountaineers, a refuge where they can acclimatize and rest. Tambopaxi style is rustic, equally from the interior and exterior. To give the buildings greater resistance, the walls were made of bales of hay lined with bahareque and the lying is covered with Chasqui (pumice stone) to isolate the sound.
