Great location to wander through Cuenca. Comfortable, spacious rooms and good nearby parking facilicities. A minor problem with the airconditioning sorted out quickly and efficiently. Courteous and helpful reception and ample, varied breakfast.

We asked for a room with a view and were disappointed to note the small, high window in our room. However, standing and looking out of the window did present a fabulous view of the back of the beautiful cathedral. The room was very nice and in keeping with the old convent style, with a decent sized bathroom too. The... More

We had been traveling about 3 weeks in Spain by the time we got to Cuenca. The minute we opened the balcony from the Attic Room, we were charmed. The private patio was simply beautiful and what a view of the surrounding area. The room is NOT right for you if you can not manage stairs. It is on the... More

Our first visit to this World Heritage city and very impressed. The hotel Convento del Giraldo is situated just a minute's walk from the Plaza Mayor where the famous cathedral is located. The staff are polite, helpful and friendly. I asked for a room with a view and could not believe what views were in store!.. On three sides (photos... More

The location is great, right in the old part of town. However, it is readily apparent that some management is missing. A group was visiting and found issues with various items either absent or not operational. Maintenance seems to be a shortcoming. In addition the WiFi is not set up correctly for security and frequently disconnects. TV is missing many... More

Lovely pretty little town perched in the mountains, a UNESCO world heritage site with lovely bars and restaurants scattered about. Hotel was lovely, cool and calm. Expected rooms to be basic in this olde worlde place, and couldn't be more wrong. Beautiful bathroom, large beds, crisp linen and plenty of hanging space. Very recent modernisation programme, and very helpful staff... More

Great location in a spectacular town. Dont bother with their restaurant - the one directly accross the road was one of the best meals we have had, full stop. Breakfast was also very expensive. We went down to the Plaza Major and had jamon, bread and coffee with the locals.

Cuenca is an amazing city on the gorge. Steep streets, lots of alleys and stairs and hairpin turns. We stayed here 3 nights in a twin bedded room which was very comfortable. Had a great view from our window toward the gorge and across to the parador. Fabulous! We were on the 3rd floor. Staff were very helpful. Had issues... More
