Hotel San Juan is pretty much in the center of Cuenca and a good place from which to walk and explore. Cathedral of the Emaculate Conception is probably the most famous and popular of nearby sights. Since we were on a tour and had a local guide we learned quite a bit about the building, its' towers and history. You'll... More

All I will ever remember about the San Juan is how cold it was.. Actually it was an interesting building with a lot of very old pictures and antique furniture. It is a lovely hotel but so cold one could never enjoy it.We asked for a heater for our room and they sent one. But it made no real impression... More

We were allocated a room at the rear, which overlooked the garden, rooftops and a vacant plot. It was a very large room with two king size beds, it had decent furniture, but no safe. We mentioned this at Reception and one was delivered to our room, with no instructions. The bathroom had a bath with spa (which was very... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and from here you can explore Cuenca the best. Its in the middle of the centre, and not far from many things to visit. The hotel has very nice rooms, breakfast is very good and the staff is super friendly!

We stayed in the Presidential Suite. This was not a suite, nor was it Presidential. The sound insulation is almost non existant, and we could hear the slightest conversations from the foyer, door bells at midnight as well as breakfast preparations at 6 pm. We checked out two days into our one week booking. My wife, left behind two garments.... More

We stayed in the San Juan for two nights in December . Very welcoming, spotlessly clean , and with all the facilities a first class should have. Generous public areas mean the hotel never feels crowded. Close to the main square and to all the city centre restaurants. Breakfasts have a wide choice . The room we were given was... More

This hotel is very conveniently situated in a fairly busy street within an 8-minute walk to the Cathedral. The furnishings are elaborate but somewhat dowdy. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and we were fortunate to have a back room ensuring quietness for sleeping, although the view is unattractive. Actually, the back courtyard is like a cloister, with a grassy... More

We were very pleased with our 2 nights in the San Juan hotel. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, our room was huge, and the many social areas/ patios were very nicely decorated. And all of that for a more than reasonable price!

Nice old world hotel within a quarter mile to excellent restaurants,main square,shopping,and old cathedrals. Nice size room and plenty of hot water.
