Stayed with a couple of friends. The welcome was friendly including a free airport transfer. The breakfast was a good buffet style with a chef making omelettes to your choice. The rooms were basic but very clean and comfortable. Ideal for getting around, we walked nearly everywhere. In the heart of the city but not too noisy other than Black... More

This was a great place to stay. Centrally located in the old city of Cuenca with excellent rooms, attentive service and excellent breakfast. There were road works outside but we asked for an indoor room and it was quiet. We found it a perfect location to check our the old town on foot. There was a supermarket 30 seconds away... More

I just recently stayed at this hotel with friends from Guayaquil. They said that seeing Cuenca was a must while in Ecuador (they were right). We were just staying one night and we were going to try to stay in one of their 'boutique' hotels that is an historic house converted into a hotel. The one we wanted was booked... More

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...
