We stayed with Hotel Crespo for 8 days over Christmas! The hotel itself is a beautiful old, but well maintained building with comfortable rooms and a nice large breakfast room with views to the southern mountains. The staff were friendly and helpful, our third floor room was spacious and comfortable, and overlooked the Tomebamba river with awesome views. The hotel is conveniently located, just 4 blocks from the new and old cathedrals, the central park and several museums. Included breakfasts offered several fresh fruit juices, LOTS of fresh fruit, cold cereal, various hot items, and eggs and bacon cooked to order. One note: the city was particularly noisy over Christmas and on a couple of nights we were serenaded by bands, and/or very inebriated celebrants until early in the morning. Notwithstanding this, we loved our stay, felt the price to be a good value, and would come again.

Room tip: Ask for the top floor, facing south, away from the staircase up to Calle Larga if possible.

We spent two nights here. The tiled art wall behind the reception desk is such a lovely entry view. The hotel is very well located right on the river and only a few blocks from the central square . The staff was very helpful. When our flight was suddenly cancelled they found us a driver right away who was great and very inexpensive. The breakfast is served in a nice patio with a view. The rooms next to the river staircase can be noisy but the inside rooms are very quiet. Highly recommend this hotel.

Nice old hotel, with excellent location close to city centre, and magnificent view out of the back over the lower city. Very old interior (dark woord) but this is not necessarily a bad point. Breakfast buffet is basic but sufficient. Price is very right. Just make sure you ask for a room in the back. The front rooms at Calle Larga are very noisy. And on Saturday the street is full of youngsters and you should not expect to get any sleep before 4 in the morning.

We had stayed there while working in Ecuador in the 1980-ies. We found the place almost exactly as it was back then and enjoyed this midrange hotel with perfect service and decent prices. Staff very helpful and polite. The breakfast room overlooking the river is an experience in itself. We liked the solid wooden furniture and panelling in the rooms. And the location was perfect as the tramway works had made hotels in the center hard to reach by car. One of the few hotels in the old part of town with its own car park, as others may send you to paid parking several blocks away. .

Room tip: Rooms on top floors at back of building, have best view and sound of river obliterates noise from bars and night life on Calle larga.

Stayed during recent 3 day visit to the lovely city of Cuenca. Hotel Crespo is a good medium class hotel with very good location, close to the city centre, with nice bars and restaurants close by. Very good views from high floor rooms. Limited bar-& restaurant facilities.
