Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour. Hotel is only a block away from the main square. Quaint. On the surface everything looks good but the more you look the more you realise how tired this place is. Don't be fooled by the glossy professional photos. The rooms are small but adequate - they can be quite...

The hotel is an old colonial town house with a large courtyard and open center area 3 stories high. Lots of old wood and decorations. Breakfasts were good with friendly service. The hotel has no elevator (that we could find) and all the rooms only have a window that opens to open courtyard with people walking by. There is no...

We had a huge room/suite on the 3rd floor walk up with windows on the street. A big mistake. The noise from the bar across continues until about 1:30 AM. The lighting was not good but the hotel provided us with 3 lamps which made the lighting adequate. The bathroom needs an upgrade. The service was wonderful, the staff helpful...

When we booked this hotel we wanted a hotel that would be reflective of Cuenca and this certainly is. Its a renovated colonial house and we had the junior suite. This gave us a great view and easy walk to other destinations in the city. The hotel staff was so kind and helpful and for the most part English speaking....

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for two nights recently. The hotel has a certain old European charm, and it is conveniently located in or near the center of town.

This is an old hotel but beautifully appointed; we had a double room of ample proportions, a fine bed and a long bath. The management and reception were charmimg and the meals , which we ate in the hotel, were excellent. This is old fashioned comfort.
