This hotel is nice. The rooms are large with microwaves and fridges. Masses of hot water and the staff are lovely. We had a car and there is a secure car park out the back. Beds are comfortable - no blackout curtains so bring eye masks in the summer. The thing that lets it down is breakfast. There is no buffet and no fruit one of the two days we spent here. The food is served at your table and they offer nothing like yoghurt or muesli - essentially you eat eggs and bread. We solved this the second day by buying our own stuff and keeping it in the fridge in our room. The TV blares out in the small dining room and the whole affair is a bit of an ordeal. Once you get through breakfast, everything else works pretty well. The WiFi is a bit hit and miss, depending on the time of the day. There were only three electrical sockets in our 40m2 room (one was six inches from the ceiling) . The hotel is pretty close to the centre - Cuenca is fairly safe and you can walk back after dark (unlike most cities in Ecuador) This place isn't setting out to compete with the Four Seasons and generally we felt it represented good value for money.

This is not a hotel for tourists who don’t speak Spanish - there was not a word of English spoken, not by reception or restaurant staff. The hotel is also rather out of the way with no popular restaurants nearby – we found it difficult to find a place to eat in the immediate vicinity on our arrival night especially with nearby streets closed for the construction of an electric tram system. You can walk to the historic centre but much easier in the day. We were initially given the top floor ‘suite’ – spacious and well furnished. Is this the ‘gringo’ room for overseas guests? However, we had requested twin beds and were moved to another room which was vastly different. Cramped, old furniture, a tiny bathroom with no window and no exhaust fan so was like a sauna, plus multiple cracks in handbasin and a mildewed and peeling door. Room service was poor - wet towels left on the floor for replacement were not changed and were rehung! The bathroom bin (with used toilet paper) was not emptied even though the bedroom bin was – not nice! Breakfast was at a fixed time (7–8am), served to the table so no choice of food other than how you wanted eggs cooked – and only requests in Spanish were understood. There was no fruit, yoghurt or cereal; just eggs and rolls/bread and jam. Key/room security was also a problem. Another guest was issued a key to our room and entered while we were there. A mistake at reception but in sorting it out, they messed up our keys as well. After this incident, our keys never worked and we were locked out every time we tried to access our room over two consecutive days. No one could fix the problem. On the positive side, our room was quiet which we appreciated; and staff at reception were pleasant and tried to be helpful despite the language barrier. Overall though, I couldn’t recommend this hotel.

This is the place you must stay in when traveling to Cuenca. The staff are very friendly and go beyond expectations to satisfy your stay. the staff actually recommended a few areas to go see which turned out to be better than I expected. The hotel stays clean from morning to night. Very affordable and close to many attractions. The meals are worth trying when staying in this hotel.

I travel to Ecuador a lot for business. My favorite place to stay in Cuenca is Hotel Yanuncay. The staff is always friendly and accommodating to my needs. I've been to other hotels in Cuenca and this one is be far the cleanest. Due to their great customer service they have truly won over my business and will be booking soon for my next trip.
