Very nice hotel, with beautifull balconies and views, spacious rooms and decent bed. The only drawback was the noice at night. it sounded like there was a party going on on the floor above us and they were wearing high hills. Highly recomend the hike around the town. Beautiful. Also highly recomend the museum of modern art. I would only...

We loved our very short visit, only one night but we had mainly come to see the hanging houses of Cuenca which had been a dream of mine for 20 years. Unfortunately when we arrived here we discovered that the houses were covered up and closed for renovation! However, the historic hotel didn't disappoint and our room was delightful, -...

My family and I stayed here in June 2011. The location is terrific -- right in the middle of the Old Town -- and the views are incredible, You actually look across the ravine at the Parador and the footbridge into town. The building is over 400 years old and full of character. My son had to duck to pass...

We stayed here for two nights after 3 weeks of travelling in Spain with the hope to really relax. The room was exactly as indicated with superb views of the parador. I'm not sure what other views are like but I imagine the experience would be compromised without the view. (or better a balcony). The service was ok but I...

We stayed 2 nights this small hotel which was originally the choir school for the nearby cathederal. The location is perfect, being just off the main old square near the cathederal, with bars and resturants nearby The 17th centuary building is very original and on several levels overlooking the famous gorge. We had a large clean double room with bathroom,...

Brilliant - upgraded to the suite, and well worth it for the views! Parked up the motor bikes, booked into the hotel, but hadn't realised it was one of the hanging houses.

I can't believe there is another hotel with a better view than this one. It looks out over the whole gorge and definitely had better views than the Parador. We also sampled food elsewhere, but in the end we decided the best food was actually in our hotel's restaurant, it was very good and not too expensive, so we ended...

Stayed one night whilst driving south. Posada is not so easy to find, tucked up a little alley from the main street. We had a double room overlooking the gorge, which was well appointed and spotlessly clean. Check-in staff were helpful and friendly. Dinner that evening was uncomplicated and reasonably priced with a selection of local produce. Views from the...

Just stayed one night but this was a refreshing break from Madrid. Cuenca is gorgeous with great walks and vistas and the posada is very simple, clean and comfortable. July is hot in Spain, but Cuenca is somewhat cooler than Madrid, and my room was comfortable even without air conditioning, thanks to the shutters and blinds that blocked out the...

We have just spent 2 nights at the Posada de San Jose , our double room was very spacious and clean with an en suite bathroom. The view from our terrace overlooking the gorge was to die for especially at night. The hotel is very quirky with different levels and nooks and crannies, and beautiful old furniture. Breakfast was taken...
