I love this place not only because of the friendly owners and staff, shared garden spaces, competitive pricing and closeness to the historic center, but also because the owners are outdoors enthusiasts, specialising in sport climbing, mountain biking and trail running. So anyone who wants to climb, ride or run can get great tips on the best walls, routes and... More

Great one bedroom apartment. The grounds were lovely, the proximity to the historic district was a huge plus, and the river was the icing on the cake. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Did a City tour one day and a tour out of the City to a waterfall near Giron and on to a lake in San Fernando.... More

This was the perfect place for us to land in Cuenca as we settled into the city and looked for more permanent accommodations for our 4-6 month stay in Cuenca. The management and staff of the hotel are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. They became friends of our families during our stay. We rented the river suite which has a... More

Great place to stay right at the riverbank between the old and the new town. Big and clean apartments with a good equiped kitchen. Really nice and helpful staff. We had a wonderful time!!!

We truly enjoyed the river and the hospitality of Samara and Xajier. Beautiful Interior Courtyard with lots of indiginous plants. English is well spoken here if you want to trouble Xajier who has absolutely nothing to do as Samara does all the work while Xajier rides his mountain bike and daydreams a lot.

The location is just perfect, walking distance from downtown and next to the tomebamba river. The apartments are equipped with everything you need for long o short visit, the owners lives on site and they are always willing to help you so this plus the beautiful gardens just make you fell like home. But the best part: they accept pets!
