This hotel is my “go-to” property in Cuenca. Much as I appreciate terms like quaint, charming, historic, rustic, and the like, I do better work and sleep more restfully when I select one of the more modern, professionally run properties typical of the well-known international hotel groups.
Even though it is not part of a mega-chain, the Hotel Oro Verde Cuenca more than holds its own with its better known competitors. The décor is modern and upscale, the beds are extremely comfortable (I’ve discovered most Ecuadorian beds can be too firm for my liking), and the staff is courteous, efficient, and remarkably caring.
The buffet breakfast is plentiful and varied. The waiters will happily bring you cappuccinos to accompany the large selection of croissants, breads, cakes, and other sublimely decadent delicacies you can sample. In addition to custom made omelets, bacon and other breakfast meats, you can choose from a generous variety of Ecuadorian favorites.
My wife and I began each morning with a lovely walk along the river park that borders the hotel; for us, the perfect way to start the day. What’s more, the hotel is situated in a residential part of the city, well removed from the pollution and noise that are inevitable at almost all inner city properties.
What has left the most indelible impression on me was the concern for each guest that displayed by the entire staff. From that standpoint alone, I would rate the Hotel Oro Verde Cuenca as one of the best managed properties I have stayed in over the years. Within hours, everyone at the front desk made it their business to remember my name and ask what else they might do to make my stay more pleasant.
It doesn’t get much better than that!
