    Something very special about what the Ordoñez family has done with their family home. It is a unique experience in Cuenca, with the warmth and pride of a family home. The woodwork and floors are beautiful, with lots of character. The modern touches are much appreciated- hot water, good lighting. The restraint is also wonderful - - - - nothing... More

    I was lucky to spend the night at Casa Ordonez, situated two blocks away from the downtown Cuenca area... The staff is all smiles and hospitable something quite rare in Cuenca, the design and rooms are spacious more than 3 wifi networks all around this beautiful colonial andalusian beauty. I was greeted by Alberto who spoke perfect English and so... More

    My husband and I were in Cuenca for a month to study Spanish. (and btw, if that's of interest to you, check out Yanapuma Spanish School - its excellent!) After some time in a local homestay, we came across Casa Ordonez walking through El Centro, and stopped in to have a look. Wow! Its gorgeous! Plus, the friendly welcome from... More

    Located just two blocks from the main square and New Cathedral, this beautiful, yet affordable, B&B is the perfect compliment to the Spanish Colonial architecture of Cuenca. The home of the Ordonez family for over a century will take you back in time. The authenticity of the antique furnishings to the skeleton keys for the rooms steeps you in the... More

    I should have written this review (literally) years ago... Soy un ingrato (I'm an ingrate, I know). In 2010, I traveled with my then girlfriend to Ecuador, and we spent a few days in Cuenca. It's such a beautiful and walkable city, especially if you like cobblestone streets, Spanish colonial architecture and amazing weather. But the best part of that... More

    When Elfa helped bring my bag to my room she said, "now you're home", and she couldn't have been more correct with that statement. I spent the last few days of my six week long travel at Casa Ordonez and having stayed at budget hostels previously, I wanted to treat myself a bit. I was not disappointed. The hotel is... More

    This is our 2nd visit and found it even more delightful, fresh flowers in our room and white crisp duvet.. The warm hospitality of Alberto and staff are hard to beat. It is the perfect starting place for anyone coming to Cuenca. The rooms are immaculate and loaded with historic charm. They serve a delicious complete breakfast. While we were... More

    This hotel has it all. I can't say enough positive about it. It has old world charm, run by a warm and attentive family, prefect location. The rooms were very nice, very comfortable.. I can't say anything different from the other reviews except maybe,....stay there if you get a chance. It's one of my favorites.

    There are standard requirements to qualify for an excellent hotel. For a top rating this unpretentious hotel does not need 5 stars with a concierge, valet parking, fitness centre/gym and no beauty spa neither services such as a casino, lounge or fancy restaurants, nightclub or a football ground sized swimming pool. What matters at Casa Ordonez is Its charisma, historic... More

    Wonderful "Colonial" style hotel in the center of Cuenca. Walking distance to all major attrections. Family owned and operated. It's been in the family for over 100 years. Highly recommend a stay here. You are not treated as a guest but as part of the family.
