I stayed 3 days in this quaint hotel in the heart of Cuenca. It was extremely comfortable, relaxing and friendly. Value for money, guaranteed. There is very safe parking if you decide to come by car or using a rental. Walking distance from the airport or 2usd by taxi.

Even though I love Ecuador, the Hotel Coronel was my first landing in Cuenca. And even though it was last year, this hotel has haunted my great memories of Cuenca. I was booked for five nights and only stayed for one night at the Coronel I had just had a long bus ride from Guayaquil and was traveling alone. The... More

We stayed there for five days. The staff is very helpful, a few times had to use a translation feature on the managers pc. But that just added to the overall experience. Like previous reviews small rooms, not made for the Westerners with large suitcases. The hot water is a little touchy, you have to adjust it throughout the shower.... More

I couldn't have asked for a better stay for my short visit to Cuenca. My dad found this place and booked it regardless of some of the mediocre reviews... we quickly found out that these reviews did not accurately reflect this beautiful hotel at all. As if the mind-blowing restaurant wasn't enough, the room we stayed in was large, the... More

Stayed there for 12 days and had little or no hot water for most of the stay. No cable tv till last 4 days. The staff are very pleasant but had not been for Don Colon the chef and owner of the Resturant I would have moved. They did discount my stay and were very apologistic about things they still... More

I struggled with the average rating but..... Okay, so bad stuff first. I've slept on granite slabs backpacking that are more comfortable than these beds. The security for the hotel is not very good. Both nights now I've had to lock the back door to the hotel. It's kinda creepy too because we've been the only guests here now two... More

The small room made it impossible even to open our luggage. We had to use to bed!!!! There are better hotels in Cuenca for almost half of the price. We moved to another hotel the next day.

We passed 2 nights in March 2012 in this little hotel and were very pleased with the friendly and helpful service. It is very conveniently located - you can walk everywhere easily. The rooms are small, but so is the price. The Coronel looks just like a little cousin of the Alcazar!

I stayed just one night in this beautifully restored hotel. The owner Victor is a gracious and courtly gentleman who has genuine concern about his guest's experiences. I arrived late on a Saturday night and they saw to all of my needs. I had a minor throat infection and was coughing...Victor walked down to the pharmacy and bought some throat... More

Victor Coronel Izquierdo has restored what used to be a family furniture business into a lovely, tasteful small hotel conveniently located in the center of Cuenca. Although our room was small, the accommodations were comfortable and clean. Some of the furnishings, including those in the common space, are from the family furniture business. Although only one of the staff is... More
