Cueva Del Fraile
Ranked #10 of 11 Hotels in Cuenca
Reviewed September 21, 2005

Cueva Del Fraile is located on the Buenache Rd outside Cuenca after the most spectacular drive. It is a suberb location and building which could, with a bit more thought about the lighting and other guest facilities could be absolutely magnificent!

It is great value for money and the staff are friendly and helpful but you will need at least some Spanish as no English is spoken.

Ideal for exploring the incredible city of Cuenca with it's hanging houses, spectacular gorge, paradors, cathedral, plaza major and tourist 'train'!

Interestingly, although we didn't hear one word of English spoken in the hotel or the town during our 48 hour weekend stay, I was able to buy a Sunday Telegraph in the tiny Tabac off the main square.
