5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2011

This is a really special place. The building is beautiful and full of history. The rooms are all different and all great. The food is great the staff are friendly and thoughtful. The views are exquisite. I have stayed here 3 times and would always come back to the Posada San José and would recommend it to anyone.

“One of the best meals I had in Cuenca and a lovely welcome.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

The food in Cuenca's old town is, frankly, a disappointment so I was relieved to find that the restaurant at the Posada San Jose made more effort to please. Local dishes had a twist and included some interesting new ideas and ingredients and some decent desserts, which was a relief after the endless "flan" however much I like egg custard.

It is a bit on the expensive side - par for the course in Cuenca. But if you're a couple you'll find one of the most romantic possible views across the gorge to the east, good service and a warm welcome from the couple who run it and also create the menus. A good choice if you're visiting this city's many attractions. Do book though!
