Stay here!!! A wonderful place
A wonderful place to stay in Cuenca. The place is beautiful. Their customer service is superb and very warm and pleasant. Nice breakfast. Could not be cleaner. Wonderful linens and beautiful furniture Yes, it can be a bit noisy in the buildings of this design and of this age, but a new building would not have the colonial charm of this lovely, centrally located hotel. Sorry that could not stay for longer than one night - they were fully bookef

New ve colonial hotel
The bed was not comfortable at all and it was pretty noisy. I did really like the staff, breakfast and the colonial ambiance of the hotel. We stayed 3 nights there so the bed really started to bother me.

Good place to stay in Cuenca
Old colonial place. Super nice and helpful staff! Great location! Lots of traffic outside but that’s what happens when you are in a good location. I would have preferred a higher up room with a little outside light.

This is a gorgeous hotel in the middle of Cuenca's central historic area. We had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the lovely town. The staff were so lovely, warm and welcoming, and the breakfast was delicious with fruit salad and yoghurt then eggs to order, with delicious breads and coffee. I highly recommend this hotel

Great location at edge of old town.
Service was great. Breakfast was very good. The facility is old and probably a challenge to keep in good order. Walls are a little thin so bring ear plugs. Easy walk to rest of historic town.
