Traditional Spanish style hotel with rooms open from courtyards. Good location for visiting the sites of Cuenca. Due to the design, if you are in the "corridors" between courtyards there is a fair amount of people traffic. Breakfast is served in the restaurant which extends out into the first courtyard. Wifi only available in the front courtyard near reception.

Perfectly reasonable room albeit a bit tired, and I was in a smallish single,though others in the group had larger rooms. Good location close to the central square and cathedrals. Particularly enjoyed meal in restaurant with its Spanish emphasis and a good paella if rebooked and for special days. They say 24 hours notice and only on Sunday's, but you... More

My wife and I joined a friend, got a tour of the hotel and had dinner in the table areas in the lobby. Excellent service and good food, beautifully styled surroundings in old Cuenca Colonial Mansion. Lovely place, convenient location.

Spent 3 nights at the Inca Real. Excellent service, staff (especially Maria Agusta) is extremely pleasant and helpful. Huge breakfast included. Small downside: floors very squeaky. A bigger downside: there was no wifi in our room.

Rooms and windows face a very nice inner courtyard so they are quiet. Omelets made to order, fruit, etc. for breakfast is included. Great location close to main plaza. Lighting in bathrooms could be better but overall it's a nice, clean, quiet, lovely place.

This ended up being the best of all the places I stayed in Ecuador. When you enter it's like being transported to a different time-there's a beautiful courtyard, plants and the whole thing is just very atmospheric. Concierge is extremely helpful!

We stayed here over Christmas as a 'treat' and we were a tad disappointed with it. The reception staff who were working were great: they were helpful, polite and friendly. The other staff we came across, at breakfast for example, clearly didn't want to be there. In fact, one of the night porters went AWOL, leaving some of the other... More
