Charming hotel situated in a classic old mansion. Excellent service & location. The restaurant & our rooms over looked the river. A barking dog was unhappy one of the nights. Not sure of the prices since it was part of a package tour.

This hotel was conveniently located, but it was really old. You can hear everything going on outside the hotel and outside your room. The breakfast was good, but the service needs an upgrade. The lady that served us was in a bad mood. I don't think she liked to serve our kids.

Good location: several restaurants, ATM, pharmacy, hospital, Subway, and others nearby. Old hotel but well mantained. Hotel is next to Tomebamba river so make sure you get a nice river view (room 407 has a river view). Breakfast was also good. Variety of breads, coffee, juice and eggs. Parking was half a block away. This was not convenient for me... More

The main answer at this hotel is "No". I know several of the hotels in Cuenca. Despite its price range , there is something in common: the friendly service. It is not the case with this hotel. Any basic request , the answer is "not the hotel policy " . So , you have to pay extra for breakfast advertised... More

Hotel Crespo is in a great location to enjoy the beautiful city of Cuenca. Positives: the hotel is a converted old mansion so the rooms are varied and unique. Many of the rooms have a terrific view of the river and beyond. There are some fantastic restaurants within a few blocks and it's very near the main historical sites of... More

This elegant hotel is an excellent choice for Cuenca. Perfectly situated, only a few blocks from the Cathedrals, cozy and with a sense of "belle epoque", sometimes not unlike a labyrinth, with staircases coming up and down (no elevators, by the way, and a lot of steps to climb). Rooms are comfortable and clean (not large). Very good WiFi in... More

Generally speaking our experience was good at this hotel. The room we had 203 was spacious, but the two chairs were not very comfortable. Room 307, which our daughter and family occupied, had great views, and was comfortable. All the normal facilities were provided, and the service generally good.Secure parking was available on request. Wi-fi connection was variable. The breakfast... More

The hotel has quite a lot of charm due to its old fashion decor and location that could make it a really nice place to expend a few days in Cuenca. However, the staff, and maintenance, seems to do their best efford to leave little traps around you to screw your stay. For example in the 3 nights i was... More

This hotel is beautiful (and for sure used to be even better) and has a great location along the riverside. Beds are comfortable, rooms well sized, staff friendly, and breakfast great. On the downside the air in the room was not really fresh, but opening the windows solved that. Not that you need to walk in stairs to access the... More

Lovely hotel with very large spacious room, very clean. We had a very nice look out onto steps and the river. Nicely appointed, excellent breakfast and interesting artwork on the walls. Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful. Centrally located on Calle Largo. One recommendation is to upgrade the bed. Maybe just in our room, but was a bit saggy. Good... More
