We spent a couple of days in Cuenca on our way back to Madrid. Cuenca itself is stunning! The old town is beautifully maintained, and even though there are cars passing up and down, it retains its charm.
We had an apartment on the top floor of the Alizaque lodge and it was amazing. Laura, the girl who greeted us was very helpful and offered loads of information about where to go and what to see etc...
Our bedroom was beautiful with an ensuite bathroom. The kitchen was better than the one I have at home, fully fitted and with smart Smeg appliances. Our two teenagers slept on the pull out sofa bed and said it was very comfortable. And while my husband and I marvelled at the surrounding scenery, they were quite happy using the free Wifi! The only slight drawback about sharing this apartment was that they had to pass through the bedroom to use the bathroom - not a big deal.
The ceilings did slope, and the windows were on the small side, but this is a beautifully renovated, old building. To have changed these features would have ruined its character.
The setting of the Alizaque is perfect. It's right at the top of the old town. Have courage if you are driving and keep going uphill until you reach the very last building on the left before the castle. If you are lucky you'll get parking nearby, if not just continue on through the gates, and walk back.
Be aware that the reception desk is not open 24 hours. You do need to ring in advance of your arrival. And once you are checked in, you can be completely independent. Like I said, it's perfect!
