We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel in May of 2018. Overall we were very happy. The hotel is perhaps a little dated, and does not have the fancy facilities, but it is tastefully decorated and the staff is friendly. The rate is quite affordable, and it includes breakfast. The location is very good, it is basically between two main plazas (Parque Calderon where the big Cathedral of Immaculate Conception is and Parque San Blas where the smaller namesake church is), we easily walked to all the attractions in town. We had a room with the city view, it was fun to watch Ecuadorian daily life from the balcony.

Our stay at Casa San Rafael was wonderful. The room and common areas were beautifully decorated. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was lovely! Location was also excellent! Could not recommend more highly!

This hotel has an excellent location and you can walk to alt the highlights of Cuenca easily. The hotel has a great breakfast, helpful and friendly staff, and good facilities at a great price. The only thing is that i can get noisy. Generally, as a older house, the noise carries and I had the luck to be there when a family with many kids was around. (By many I mean over 10 small kids, screaming and jumping and crying). It wasn't the best, but not the hotel's fault. Overall, highly recommended.

After reading so many great reviews we chose Casa San Rafael. Unfortunately it was not what we expected. The rooms were very small and most of the ones we were assigned had no windows. Some of had paint chipping from the walls. The mattresses were very hard and you could hear everything that occurred in the lobby. I do agree with some of the other reviews that the breakfast was decent and the location of the hotel was very good.

We stayed three nights at this hotel. The location is great in the center of Cuenca. Front desk staff and all staff at thehotel are very nice. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Room was nice and charming, not modern but very typical and charming. Good wifi. Only negative was the noice from the street, it was quite loud.
