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

I was looking for a place to hang my hat in Cuenca with my little dog while looking for more permanent accommodation. Otorongo was perfect for this. It is dog-friendly with a lovely green garden area that is a little oasis in the city. Cooking facilities, TV, internet and reliable hot water made my little apartment a comfortable home while...

We booked our room at Hotel Otorongo as a home base while getting acquainted with Cuenca. The room was perfect for a small family to get their bearings.. (Kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and the staff even pulled out an extra bed for one of our children to sleep on) They do have two bedroom suites but we were a bit late... More

The person who stayed a couple of days and rated this place "poor" is not to be trusted. I've stayed here on 3 different occasions for a total of 5 months and take exception with people who stay a day or two and give a critique that is completely out of line with what many other people rate this hotel....
