We were really looking forward to the hot spring pool. We arrived late afternoon on a Sunday to find the pool filled with "townies" including a multitude of yelling and screaming children. Monday morning was slightly better, but stay out of the way of "club" members who come to swim laps. The Turkish bath is a simple sauna, and no... More

I was not visiting for the thermal pools so I can't judge that aspect of the hotel. Room was clean and comfortable and I was far enough away from the pool that the noise did not bother me. No internet service to the rooms was a negative for me, and in the lobby and dining area the internet service was... More

The view takes your breath away. The environment is relaxing. The manager was very professional. My kids had a good time in the pool. And we enjoyed their delicious hamburger. A perfect place to stay in Cuenca, Ecuador.

Having lived in Ecuador for many years, visiting many, many hotels in different cities, this one came in with very mixed reviews. I will break it done this way. Security – one star Service – two star Room – four star Restaurant- four star Security. Ecuador’s crime rate is rising rapidly and Cuenca is no exception although certainly safer than... More

We spent a couple if nights here before moving into Cuenca and really enjoyed the quiet and relaxation. The pools are great for hanging out, but could have been warmer for my preference. The staff was very nice and the restuarant was good, but not great. The hotel is large and there were not many people there when we were,... More

Ecuador always amazes me with how incredible the food & lodgings can be for such low prices...but Hosteria Duran was a little disappointing. The food was expensive, but not nearly as good as some of the $3.00 almuerzos you can get in smaller restaurants. The "hot" springs (the ones included in the room price) are not really "hot" so much... More

A great room and excellent restaurant. The pool is filled with water thermally heated by the local volcanoes-- a giant hot spring. An absolute beautiful view of the city at night. Everyone was friendly and the service was impeccable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hosteria Duran. The service at the desk could not be nicer, and the wait staff is also excellent. The rooms were clean and lovely. We would definitely go back.
