The place was built on an easy walk from the cathedral so that clergy would be in time. As a solo traveler I was offered a single room at the end of an up stairs or a double en suite opposite of a downstairs. I should have paid extra for a better room since I was woken every night by... More

We loved this place. This is a historical building, but with all the modern facilities. Our room had an amazing window view and was very quiet. Very comfortable bed and very nice personnel. Good wi-fi at the reception.

An update. We stayed a second night but had to leave our gorge-side suite for room 27. They had warned us of the kitchen vent noises so no complaints there. We waited to get fresh air till after the kitchen closed. But the room is near to the entrance hall and Saturday night ended late for some with banging doors... More

A lovely rustic hotel that used to be a monastery and has retained old features and charm. Our bedroom (Room 33) actually sloped towards the gorge which was unnerving at first but actually it grew on us and became something we became to think of that set it apart from other experiences! We had the breakfast buffet; the food was... More

Once you have a chance to pass by the Posada San Jose, Jennifer and her family will make you feel part of it.. No way to describe this amazing experience but to live it ( I do recommend to add it to your Bucket list!!!! )

This inn is in a hanging house. Although you only know this if you can get out of the inn and get a photo of it from below. It was disappointing. Staff were friendly and helpful in a professional sense but in comparing our experience to medieval Albarracin we knew what going the extra mile means. As for the bedroom...... More

We were on a Road Scholar Tour of Spain which took us to this beautiful town and booked accommodations at this wonderful inn. The room was lovely and had a great balcony overlooking the gorge. We ate several meals in the restaurant during our two night stay, which were delicious. Cuenca should not be missed and staying at Posada de... More

We stayed for only one night, wanted two. The accomodation was wonderful and interesting as it's in an old convent. Lots of passages small door ways, uneven floors with loads of character. Our room was 75 euro and had a small balcony with a view out to gauge. The room was large for European standard, with table and chairs, a... More

We stayed in this establishment last September for a friend's Wedding which was also held on the premises.It was certainly one of the most atmospheric places that I have stayed in - our room was in one of the lower floors with a panoramic view of the gorge and a charming outside terrace.I think the building was a converted monastery...

One of my favorite once-anonymous hotels in the most spectacular Spanish rural mountain setting. Getting to Cuenca takes some planning and the goal must be romantic or near spiritual. Posada de San Jose gives you peace and purity of soul. The tiny hanging balconies of their best rooms are simply architectural gems from a Bruegel canvas. The classic ravine of... More
