Stayed here a few nights. Great location in Cuenca, an easy walk to the main attractions (churches, museums). Some rooms have lofts, which is great for kids. Big issue is the noise. You can hear everything in the adjoining rooms. I mean everything, above a whisper. I am not talking about yelling, or people with load voices. You can hear... More

We stayed there with our kids and friends. This little "posada" was surprisingly good. Rustic yet very clean and ample rooms. Good food. Friendly staff. Location was right in old town. Breakfast is good and came included in the rate. Bathrooms are a bit small but overall good.

My wife and I travel a lot to Cuenca, and as such were looking for a place that was not too expensive, but at the same time comfortable. This little hotel is very well located in the middle of the historic part of town. It is run by the owners, who are adorable, kind, and very professional people. Besides all... More

We were referred to this hostel by a travel agent in Quito. We stayed two nights. The price was right, and it's located in the downtown area of Cuenca in an old, remodeled building, so it was very convenient. The hostel was charming and actually looked "Bavarian-like" to me. The owners were pleasant and service-oriented. We also ate a delicious... More

This is a small family-run hostel. It has 12-13 rooms very rustic but clean and comfortable. The service is superb, and the price includes a good breakfast. Inside the hostel they have an italian restaurant which is one of the best in the city. Great prices too. Always stay here!

We marveled at the renovations that were done on Hostal Posada del Angel. They were able to revitalize an old building and make it a revitalized place. The Angel theme was interesting to see many of them incorporation into the decor. The location was ideal and allowed us to see Cuenca by foot. We did have a big problem with... More

I am a new resident of Cuenca, and stayed at this hotel 3 weeks, while I searched for a rental apartment. My stay was over the Christmas holidays, and I couldn't have chosen a better place! This is a charming, comfortable hotel. At Christmas, especially festive and welcoming. On December 24th, the Pase del Nino parade passed right in front... More

The family that own this Hostal really make you feel at home, its like staying at a big family gathering. The rooms were big and spacious, ours had 4 beds, one on an upper level despite the fact that there was only 2 of us. The breakfast was very good (Certainly by Ecuadorian standards) The places has a communal feel... More

Very comfortable, charming hotel with good breakfasts and nice sitting areas in an excellent location with very helpful and hospitable staff. Angie and Paul were particularly helpful in guiding us to the main tourist attractions and for transport to other parts of Ecuador. I can't recommend Hotel Posada del Angel enough.

This was a great little family owned place. Rooms were clean and quiet, despite the wooden floors in the hallways. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was one of the better ones I had in Ecuador. It was a bit pricey by Ecuador standards, so look around first. I just arrived in Cuenca late and night... More
