Xavier, Angelita y Sarah, Thank you for a wonderful, warm and happy experience! We loved staying at Otorongo, loved the garden, loved being near town and on the river. Thank you for making our visit so comfortable and enjoyable!

We have been coming to Hotel Otorongo for the past 3 years and will be returning again in 2016. The apartments are located on the banks of the Tomebamba River with a lovely courtyard and garden. It's an easy walk to downtown and right on the bus line. Always easy to get a cab too. The apartments are clean and... More

Hotel Apartamentos Otorongo is a lovely place to stay. Situated along the river, it's just a short walk to the old town of Cuenca. The apartments are spacious with lots of storage and a modestly furnished kitchen. Breakfast is available and there are restaurants and small grocery stores nearby. Xavier, the owner, is a great tour guide who is personable... More

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.

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
