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....

We stayed for less than a week while waiting for our container to arrive from the States. We had prepaid for two weeks, but the hotel was cold, uncomfortable, noisy and a bit seedy. We found that our obtainer was delayed for two weeks, and decided to put some extra money into making our condo comfy rather than extend our... More

We stayed at the Hotel Apartementos Otorongo for about two weeks. The staff was exceptionally helpful and always available. The rooms were very clean and daily housekeeping is included. Laundry was a bit extra, but it came back the same day all neatly folded. This hotel/apartment is located in the older historic part of Cuenca. Walking to everything we wanted... More
