Quaint colonial whose charm is beginning to fade. Common areas are average. Room needs a makeover. Basic breakfast included in room price. Bare feet required washing before putting clean socks on because of dirty room carpet. WiFi spotty to non-existent. Reset in-house connection after requested one day. Never reconnected after subsequent request. Gives the appearance of advertising luxury while actually... More

It's a smaller boutique hotel located almost center of downtown Cuenca. For the price, we paid $60 US a night ( breakfast included) it was great. It's within walking distance of almost everything downtown, if you need to call a cab $2.50 was the most we paid. Hotel is very quaint, great atmosphere, staff was extremely helpful (helped us book... More

Think we were the only guests in nicely restored property. Staff speaks limited English but are very accommodating. Great covered openroof allowed nice breeze throughout. Nice breakfast. Lovely grassy garden @ rear of property.

We stayed four nights at this hotel and were very pleased with our choice. Actually it was a review on TripAdvisor that encouraged us to look at it online, and we decided to book it. We were not disappointed. It is an old colonial building which has been tastefully decorated and is nice and peaceful inside, although it is on... More

We stayed one night in this well kept hotel. The staff could not have been more accomodating and gracious. The hotel agreed to keep two bags for us in secure storage as we departed for a jungle tour a week ahead of our stay at Hotel San Andres. On a late arrival at 11 pm, after that tour, our bags...

The Hotel San Andres in Cuenca is a beautifully restored traditional colonial building - it's absolutely stunning inside. The hotel is centrally located on Gran Columbia, yet it's very quiet and peaceful. The rooms are very tastefully decorated, the beds are quite comfortable, and the staff is exceedingly friendly. Breakfast is included in the price. I've stayed at the San... More

I found this place by accident when I arrived at the highly rated Morenica del Rosario, realised it was a huge disappointment and went walking to look for alternatives. San Andres is almost literally across the road fro mthe other hotel, and both are in a fabulaous location forthe city. San Andres is however $10 a night cheaper and offers... More

Very helpful hotel manager. THIS IS WHAT COULD BE IMPROVED: No WiFi in the room Service, though, but indifferent, Given that... More
