We stayed here for two nights and the girl who welcomed us was really nice and helpful. The room she put us in was extremely small and there were no windows! The walls were super thin and we didnt get to much sleep during our stay... In the ceiling was a glass stone, which lighted up the room everytime the... More

My girlfriend and I came in to Cuenca for two nights and three days on a bus from Guayaquil, Ecuador. We had a little mix up in our reservation with a neighboring hotel. And needed we needed another place to stay. One of the owners, a young man named: Adreas..., I think was his name..., .met me on the sidewalk... More

We moved here as we had a horrible experience in a hostel. This place was amazing. The beds were so comfortable, the room had everything you need; table, chairs, hangers and wardrobe. The bathroom was new, the shower is the best we've had in South America, good power and constant hot water. The breakfast was prepared as soon as you... More

We moved here after a bad experience in a nearby backpacker hostal and was so glad we switched. We had a lovely double room with excellent furniture and comfy bed. They'd thought of everything with a small desk and a comfy chair to relax in - and hooks for clothes on the wall which we love. The bathroom was excellent... More

If all that matters to you is having a bed to sleep in at night, then this place would be good, but in my opinion it is really not worth the money. First of all, when we made a reservation for a room with 2 beds and a private bathroom, we had to jump through about 50 hoops to get... More

I stayed at la casa la cuencana for 3 nights and the place definitely felt like my home away from home. I was fortunate enough to be granted a free upgrade and I absolutely loved the room that was allocated to me. It was private, quiet, cosy and tastefully decorated. I also appreciated the recommendations that I received with regards... More

This place is perfect and adorable. The owners/staff are all awesome and super sweet and helpful (let us in late at night and also arranged a cab for us to depart early the next morning) and the room was clean and totally sufficient. There was plenty of hot water and uninterrupted wifi, too. But, perhaps best of all, there is... More

This place is absolutely wonderful. We stayed in one of the private rooms with a bathroom and it was so beautiful and clean. The bed was huge and super-comfy and the shower was the best i've had in South America, great pressure and lots of heat. The owner is really wonderful. She doesnt speak english, but she always went out... More

Stayed in La Casa Cuencana after spending a few days at another hotel in Cuenca. The location was ideal for me. Close to Carolina Bookstore (for Spanish lessons), Windhorse Cafe (breakfast served all day - great omelets!), Goza (outside seating for eating, drinking, & meeting people), and an easy walk to all other sites in El Centro. My room was... More

We got there very late and they where very nice to us! Maybe the only place to stay in Cuenca with a parking lot and a reasonable price!!! The lady there was very nice and everything was very clean too!!! So overall it was a pretty nice experience!
