The hotel is located in a perfect location for walking around the city of Cuenca. The hotel itself is quite charming and you feel like you have gone back in time as you walk the hallways. The rooms themselves are basic and a little small but have TVs and anything else you might need. The comforter on the bed in... More

The location of the hotel is great, within walking distance to all the city center sights and all the restaurants and shops there. This said, the restaurant in the hotel serves great food and is certainly worth a visit (great for those tired evenings where you just don't want to venture far anymore...). The staff was helpful with booking a... More

My family and I stayed in a double room on the 1st floor off the main courtyard. The room was pleasant, with simple furniture and a TV. We did find that it was quite noisy until the restaurant closed and the tidying up finished, about 10 pm, which created a problem trying to get the kids to sleep. We ate... More

This hotel was pretty nice, my family and I stayed one night. It was not busy but the feel of the hotel was elegant. Breakfast was great and staff were very friendly. The restaurant in the hotel was also worth a visit, had the Churrasco, best steak I had in Ecuador.

I have staying more than one time in this place, specially when the trip is with the family. The hotel is in the middle of the colonial city of Cuenca, you can walk to many restaurant and traditional places.

Traditional Spanish style hotel with rooms open from courtyards. Good location for visiting the sites of Cuenca. Due to the design, if you are in the "corridors" between courtyards there is a fair amount of people traffic. Breakfast is served in the restaurant which extends out into the first courtyard. Wifi only available in the front courtyard near reception.

The idea is to keep the identity of the house which characterizes Hotel Inca Real for that reason the first courtyard rooms can generate a little more noise than other courtyards.
