Just arrived in Cuenca and need a place to stay one night until I move into my condo. Taxi from airport was three bucks. Front desk staff both spoke good enough English (better than my Spanish) and made check in easy. I'll be in Ecuador for 90 days so I have two large suitcases plus carry-on. Hotel has no elevators and all the rooms are on the second and third floors. Staff offered to keep luggage in office which was nice. The room was very small with a full bed, tiny shower and tiny separate toilet area. It's all I really needed though traveling by myself. The mattress on the bed was too firm for my liking, far from my pillow top. There are no ceiling fans or air condition so you just have to open the window. It's nice at night bit during the day it can become "stuffy". Some type of circulation would be nice. Over all not a bad experience, it's the first hotel in Ecuador I have ever stayed in so nothing to compare.
