My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we felt like we were at home. The breakfast was delicious and the owners are very welcoming and accommodating. This is the best place you can stay in if you're visiting Cuenca. If you need travel help or any kind of assistance getting around, the owners or employees will gladly... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in February for a friend's wedding. We absolutely loved everything about Casa Ordonez. The building is historic and beautiful, with stained glass and tasteful decorations inside, and the rooms are equally beautifully decorated. The staff was always super friendly and helpful, and everyone spoke English (or at least enough for us... More

Central to everything from banks and groceries to the city center, Casa Ordonez is a great place to stay as an introduction to Cuenca and Ecuadorian life. The casa itself takes you back in time to the way many families built their homes. The breakfasts are close to the best in the city including the most attentive staff anywhere. All... More

This B and B is very beautiful. It is a short taxi ride from the airport. The moment you step into the property you are taken back in time as it used to be the owner's grandparents' home. It is filled with opulent vintage curios and household items. The amenities offered are excellent; and full marks to the owner and... More

This hotel was one of the most interesting places I've stayed at. It has a long history in Cuenca and owned and operated by generations of family. Alberto is the proprietor and treats his guests magnificently. Ask him about the history of Cuenca and his family connections to it and you'll be entertained for sure. All of the staff were... More
