This beautifully restored building, with a gorgeous center courtyard and lush gardens and fountains, serves as the perfect place to get to know Cuenca. It's within walking distance to great restaurants and all the city sites. The staff was adorable! Helped us in all ways... we arrived just moments after the great earthquake hit the coast! This is a great... More

Charming hotel, with very friendly staff. Food was very good and there is a small bar. Hotel was in a traditional spanish colonial home with a center courtyard. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, with en suite bathrooms that had hot water.

This was our favorite hotel during our two weeks in Ecuador. It is beautiful, the rooms are large and comfortable (with lovely bathrooms), and the dining area is wonderful...and the food is excellent. The staff was very attentive and friendly, and very helpful with our luggage. The Hotel San Juan is conveniently located only a few blocks from the main... More

This is a beautiful hotel and our room was great but ... We were on the front court yard on a weekend, so two bad things:1) our room did not have a window to the outside so it was warm and stuffy even though it was cool outside; 2) it was the weekend and the hotel had several catered events...

Lucked into this wonderful gem via Expedia - best thing Expedia ever did for me. From the first step in the door to my charmingly appointed king room, everything felt great! A warm and welcoming and English speaking receptionist quickly got me checked in and in my room. Each room is uniquely and tastefully decorated and the lobby and hallways... More

We stayed at the San Juan Hotel for two nights in mid-June. It is conveniently located near the Old Town area of Cuenca with lots of restaurants within only a few minutes’ walk. The San Juan is on a busy street that was surprisingly quiet at night. The hotel has three floors in an older but yet very modern building... More

Our large comfortable room faced a lovely garden and featured a big bathroom with jacuzzi tub. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the local was perfect for exploring the lovely old city of Cuenca. Our best meal in Ecuador was at the Villa Rosa only a block away.

The service was excellent. We had a room at the back overlooking the garden since I have trouble negotiating stairs (no elevator). The breakfast was good although not elaborate. The location is perfect for touring old town. Downside-the room did smell a little musty and the bedside and desk lamps did not work but with some imaginative lightbulb switching it... More
