Our family spent 2 months at Apt. Otorongo and had a very pleasant stay. The rooms are all different from each other in layout and size, so if you travel in low season you might want to see them, to choose what best suits your needs. The apartments that face the interior courtyard or the river are better than those... More

It's been like 7 or 8 years since I stayed with my family at this suites in Cuenca, at that time I remember they were cheap and modest but clean, the service was good, and the place, which had a nice garden in the middle where my kid used to play, was taken care of. I decided to book there... More

My husband and I have been very pleased with our one bedroom apartment (more than two weeks to date) at this small, river-side complex, recommended by my school, Escuela Sampere. A big plus is the proximity to the pretty river, with its sinuous green space and sidewalks through town. My husband rented a bike (from the complex's owner) for morning... More

I arrived here with three kids, six suitcases, and four footlockers. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. Everyone was so friendly and helped with all of our luggage upstairs to our apartment. We were lucky and had a room facing the river and it was so peaceful listening to the sound of the river every night.... More

We arrived in Cuenca with six suitcases and needed a place to start the process of getting setup. Apartamentos Otorongo fits the bill perfectly. Being right by the Rio Tomebamba was great and drowned out what little street noise we had - had a room facing the back, not the street. Xavier is fluent in English and went out of... More

These apartments are fully furnished, including cleaning everyday with sheets and towels replaced once a week. Read your responsibilities on the information located in each apartment. There is no smoking except at the river and the street in front of the apartments. Two stories. Family friendly, it's a neighborhood and you will meet your neighbors. As many gringos are at... More

We're just a week into our month-long stay in the Tomebamba Suite but know for sure that it was the right choice for a stay of any length. The churning, backyard river is a soothing reading spot, the inner courtyard is lush and fragrant and the walk downtown can be either mostly riverside or a varied mix with city streets.... More

The apartments are clean, comfortable and a great value. The setting is beautiful and the staff is helpful and friendly and can arrange for tours or assist with taxis, buses, and translation. You can also save money by purchasing delicious fresh food from the markets in town and prepare it in your own kitchen. If you don't feel like making... More

Planned a six-week stay in Cuenca and did a lot of Internet searching to find a nice place for the two of us. The Apartamentos Ortorongo turned out very well. The apartments—within easy walking distance to the center of Cuenca—have some beautiful flora, and the sound of the Tomebamba River is wonderful. The buildings are between twenty and thirty years...

Although the Apartamentos Otorongo could use a little cosmetic updating--the tiles in our unit were the color of bandaids, and many were cracked--the staff here does a tremendous job of keeping the place spotless and, at about $30 a night for a one-bedroom apartment in walking distance of Cuenca's old town, the price is tough to beat. Apartamentos Otorongo was... More

Thanks for your comments, we are glad you had a good time with us. Certainly, some of our apartments need a cosmetic upgrade, matter of fact we are in the process. We will love to do a complete overhaul at once, to get everything nicer. But we can not close the business entirely while we do that. Hope next time... More
