We stayed there 2 nigths and we really enjoyed it! We got a room with balcony and it was a little noisy but really charming. The beds are old but the room was clean and warm (it was pretty cold outside). Make sure you get a room with balcony!

We stayed three nights in this colonial hotel. Comfort room, well equipped with roof top terrace for excellent breakfast. Staff always available to provide recommendations. Very well positioned. Almost walking distance from the most interesting place in the city center.

Fantasic hotel. Gorgeous, large rooms in a transformd colonial mansion that retains much of its charming historic interior. The amenities were very modern however, particularly the bathroom. Very confortable bed. Warm and friendly staff. And the breakfasts were great too, as they rotated the menu every day and always included unique Ecuadorian specialities in addition to the standard breakfast fare.... More

Located right in/near the historical center of Cuenca--a Unesco heritage site. Clean, quiet rooms and tasty breakfast served each morning. Staff was very helpful in orienting us to various spots in town, all of which were in easy walking distance of the hotel.

We can't say enough good things about this place. Our rate was $68/night. A bargain. That includes breakfast. The staff was outstanding, and very fluent in English. They catered to our every whim. They placed phone calls helping us locate an old friend. They even arranged breakfast ahead of the scheduled serving times on our last day, because we had... More

This is an amazing little hotel. It is well situated within a 10-20 minute walk or short cab ride to many sites, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel is beautiful - a blend of the historical and the modern. Breakfast, served on the rooftop, was one of the best we've had on our travels through South America.... More

very nice looking hotel, friendly staff, clean, good location close to the centre of Cuenca, ... My friends and me can really recommend this, we arrived here after a long flight from Europe, they picked us up from the airport and were very friendly. The restaurant in the hotel also serves good food!
