I stayed at the Vlila Nova one evening as it was the perfect spot, right on the river overlooking the river and Parque de la Madre. The rooms were great but the service was exceptional - Bill, Deloss and Webster made my trip ten times better. Great bar, great service, great breakfast, value for money and a prime spot to... More

Bill took excellent care of me and my family. This was our first trip to Ecuador. The morning breakfast is fresh and delicious. Rooms are very clean and the service exceeded our expectations we can't wait to return

We had a wonderful time at the Villa Nova. It is located in an ideal part of Cuenca, right on the River, and we could hear it rushing over the rocks day and night, which was very soothing to us. The service was absolutely wonderful, and the Manager and staff always very helpful and responsive. The rooms are not luxury,... More

The location of the Villa Nova Inn is superb. Just a short walk up the stairs and you are 3 blocks from the old city center. The hotel itself is located on one the 4 rivers that run through town making a pleasant backdrop for the newly renovated patio space. The accommodations of hot showers, fast and reliable internet and... More

I went to Cuenca from Playas to meet up with a friend I had not seen in a couple years - from the heat to the neat. She was staying at the Villa Nova Inn so that's where I went. It is a small Inn overlooking the Rio Tomebamba and Parque de la Madre. The area around the Inn is... More

My friend and I had a 'girls weekend' in Cuenca, and what better place could we have stayed but this cozy and convenient Inn in the El Barranco sector! It is very close to the Escalinata which rises to the central downtown area at Avenida Hermano Miguel. Bill Dixon provided consistent hospitality and his able bilingual assistant Gaby made arrangements... More

We, my Wife, Mother and Father recently stayed for 5 nights at the Inn, from Dec 15th till the 20th. We had the two river view rooms while there. The Inn and surrounding area, are extremely well taken care of and we felt very safe the entire time. The manager, Bill Dixon, should be congratulated on the job he is... More

I and two of my daughters traveled to Ecuador to visit my third daughter who is serving in the Peace Corp. in Machala. We took a bus from Guayaquil to Cuenca (I must confess I have never taken a bus so I was apprehensive but surprised how nice the ride was). There was an art festival going on the weekend... More

Trip Advisor describes the Villa Nova Inn as being 3.1 miles from Cuenca. This is not true. It is no more than a 5-7 minute walk from the main square. Don't be deterred! The Villa Nova sits just above the beautiful Tomebamba River and directly across from a newly renovated public park. You can fall asleep to the sound of... More
