The Mansion Alcazar is a special place- a beautiful colonial house converted to a boutique hotel with passion and feeling- beautifully furnished with antiques chosen personally by the owner in the colonial rooms and outfitted with modern furniture and amenities in the newer garden rooms. The courtyard is a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the fountains and flowers and... More

This is just a fabulous, small boutique hotel that you will enjoy immediately. The court yard is special with it's sitting alcoves and dinning area. Have a wine in the bar and enjoy. The rooms are lovely and quaint. It's truly and "don't miss" if even for a short stay.

From the time we stepped into Mansion Alcazar, it felt special. The hotel is wonderfully appointed. The common areas are a treat to wander. It's built around several courtyards in the traditional Spanish style. Each courtyard has its own flavor. The hotel is extremely close to both the new church & the old church as it's right in the heart... More

The hotel is a small jewel, classy and cosy in the same time. I actually do not know how much I paid as it was part of a packaged tour but surely it is not cheap. The new rooms are standard, while those in the old house have a special flavor. The common areas and the dining room are very... More

I was here for two nights in April 2016. This is a very impressive place to stay and I'd certainly stay again when in Cuenca. The main house is very grand although I stayed in the garden rooms - a separate block at the end of the garden. The room was well equipped and, like the hotel, very quiet. The... More

Located a quick walk from the famous square of Parque Calderon. Mansión Alcázar Boutique Hotel is located in a very vibrant area of the city, nearby well known museums and churches. This republic style architectural adds the perfect element of elegance to this already refined structure. Guests of this Ecuador hotel can have a refreshing cocktail or glass of champagne out in the jasmine garden and enjoy the fantastic surroundings of our Hotel. Relaxing indoors is also an option, by the baby grand piano sipping a warm cup of tea. This hotel knows just how to pamper their guests.
