Excellent location in the historic center, a quick 5-minute walk from Parque Calderon. Nice-sized, modern rooms and conveniences, especially when on business. The hotel accommodated my group of 20+ students and parents with professionalism. Not a Hilton, but a pretty good value in an area with lots of hotels and lodging options.

A pleasant overnight stay. Nice room. Not a perfect view. Just looked into s fire escape but if you looked sideways over the city that was better. Down a side street. The place took a bit of finding after going into the main square for a meal Breakfast was fine Room fine Just a very quick overnight stay

This is a pleasant modern hotel, with nice, fairly large, clean rooms. The free wifi works in the rooms. But avoid room 212 - there is a sort of service roof immediately outside, level with the window, and the only view is of a concrete wall and metal grill on the other side of this, only a couple of meters...

I visit Cuenca every year for business and I always stayed at the same hotel, I like this place and will continue to stay in future visits. I really enjoy the morning breakfast and to sit at the lobby bar after a full day of work.

We booked for 2 nights in late july. The hotel is 1 block from Cuenca's main square. The room is midsize, with a kingbed and a big full bathroom.

El dorado is a modern hotel and very comfortable hotel, very well located in the main street of Cuenca, one block from the main square. The rooms are clean and the bed is very comfortable.
