Large bedroom, very warm in the cold, wintry weather of January, friendly reception staff and an unbeatable location, a stone's throw from the cathedral and central square. Would recommend this hotel.

Stayed January 2013, traveled as a couple

Not a very big place to stay but the hotel is central and the staff are friendly. The no1 bus brings travellers between the hotel and the centre of Cuenca, a number of bars/restaurants nearby. Overall good value for money

Good value-for-money hotel in the most historic part of town. Best to park in the free carpark at Calle Larga, 10 minutes walk away, rather than tangling with the narrow streets and underground parking near the hotel.

Initial welcome was a little offhand, but otherwise all was fine.

Some reviews mention the hard beds. Our bed was remarkably hard, which we found no problem at all.

This hotel is located in the Barrio del Castillo right at the top of the old part of the town. Those of mediocre health will require a bus/taxi to get to it, since it is a steep walk from the entrance to the Casco antiguo. The rooms are comfortable, but of greater interest were the spectacular views over the valley running to the north of the town. The staff were helpful and correct in their dealings with guests.

Love this hotel. Great location very close to the main plaza in the old part of town. Rooms are very roomy by European standards. Big comfortable bed and large bathroom. Breakfast was very nice. Old building with wonderful views from our room. Wireless did not work very well and was always dropping the connection.

Our first choice was the Parador de Cuenca but after reading TA reviews this place was our second choice. It definitely has a great location and the staff was very friendly but besides that, this place was like staying in a convent. The beds were rock hard (and I like a firm bed), the pillows horrible (interestingly they have a whole list of pillows you can choose from but when we asked they were out of every pillow we wanted), the AC did not work and since our room opened out onto the main street it was really loud and in order to sleep we needed to close the windows, the drain was clogged in the shower (on the first day as well as the second even after I told the staff about it and it was supposedly "fixed"), and the internet did not work either (neither in our room nor downstairs in the lobby). During my 8 weeks before this traveling around in Spain I stayed in hostals that cost half the amount of this hotel that were far better. I was very disappointed with this hotel. would not recommend it and I would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere.

Hotel location is probably the best for visiting Cuenca old town. At just 100 meters from Plaza Mayor ( Main Square) where you have the Cathedral, the Town Hall and some tapas bars. The hotel inside is modern and comfortable. The rooms are decorated with style mixing modern with traditional decoration. Ask for a room with a view to the Hoz del Huecar. Breakfast also good with all that you can expect. Parking alternatives are the paying parking a few meters up the street or just park at the public ( free of charge) parking of El Castillo. It is safe and you will save some money. The hotel has also a nice restaurant, but there are also good alternatives in the back street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the Hoz del Huecar
