One block from the park and located near all the restaurants and bars famous in this city stands an authentic spanish hotel. Service is great and friendly. Free breakfast each morning. $25/night per person. I did not have much luck with the wi-fi connection

The first floor room was nice, big modern bathroom, breakfast was included and very good. We had lunch one day and it was $5.80 for both of us. Internet was very spotty....in and out a lot. Nice and comfortable place for the money! 😊

Booked a weekend through a booking website. Our plans changed a bit so we tried to change our reservation which was no problem! Unfortunately our positive feelings faded when we arrived. The hotel is located in a quiet area of the city center. Away from the restaurants etc. The rooms are old and worn and the cleaning isn't done too... More

Nice big room with TV and big bathroom. Breakfast was outstanding, free water, nice common area and the location was perfect. Close to everything. The internet worked well most of the time but occasionally wouldn't let us connect. Really friendly, helpful staff. We were on the ground floor right on the restaurant and it could get a little noisy in... More

We stayed three nights in a room with a double and a twin bed. Very little English is spoken here. Most rooms encircle a large courtyard where breakfast is served. Early mornings are noisy with breakfast prep and the TV on in the courtyard. Wifi was sporadic and not reliable. The location is convenient for walking in the city. Beds... More

My wife and I had Gran Hotel booked for us via our Spanish School in Quito, as we were coming to Cuenca for another period of Spanish school plus travel. What a fantastic find it was. Our viewing of other similar accommodations in the area convinced us we would not be moving. We had a large room (#216) overlooking THE... More

We had tried to make a reservation on despegar.com, but never got a confirmation, so took a chance & showed up. They fitted us in for three nights, in a tiny room off the central courtyard/ dining room. Excellent wifi, large flat screen TV, hot water, good breakfast in that stunning central courtyard. It seems to be noted for its... More

Very charming colonial style hotel. Room was pleasant small but adequate. Clean bathroom with hot water. Very nice breakfast.Great location in historic area walking distance to resturaunts, shopping, museums. Would recommend this hotel great value. All rooms had a window view to the hallway but curtain was adequate for complete privacy.

This hotel had such a balance between elegance and coziness. We had a room with a balcony out to the front street. The bed was comfy, the breakfast was great and the staff helped us get to so many places nearby.
