This hotel is built in a well conserved old haus. A lot of wood with nice style. Very well located in the middle of old downtown, close to everything. Price and quality is acceptable. Cuenca has a very special flair, nice weather, beatiful nice walks around the river Tomebamba. A lot of places to eat and have good time.

Hotel Principe was not our first choice of hotels in Cuenca but was an acceptable alternative. The interior of the hotel is very attractive, including the dining area, lobby, and rooms. The location is very good, near sites and restaurants. The one fault we found was that rooms either faced the street (and thus were noisy, but you could open... More

Located 3 blocks from the central square and 3 blocks to the main (tourist) market, this is in a great location. The breakfast (included) was basic but good (eggs, rolls and coffee/tea), rooms were roomy and beds were comfortable. As the other poster mentioned, the restaurant has a high (3 stories) open area, so it's a little breezy (nothing a... More

Hotel Principe is located only 150 meters from the old cathedral in Cuenca. It has 34 rooms and a big restaurant on the ground floor. The hotel has a roofed patio style indoors, making it a bit cold in the reataurant and reception areas. Most of the rooms open to this patio meaning most rooms have no outside windows. The... More
