My girlfriend and I visited Cuenca in March of this year and spent 3 nights in this hotel. Firstly, the location of the hotel is within walking distance to nearly everything you'll want to see in town. Should you need to catch a cab they are usually available right outside the door.
The hotel staff is friendly, speak good English and will help you with all of your needs. The rooms are roomy and the bathrooms are updated and spacious. The king size mattress was nice and firm and quite comfortable. We were given a room with a balcony facing the cathedral which was awesome especially at night when the blue domes were lit up. Breakfast came with the room and was about average but I have to say breakfast in Ecuador in general is pretty bland and basic.
The only drawbacks would be if you need an elevator there isn't one and street noise. We brought ear plugs and a $20 noise machine we bought from bed, bath and beyond and slept great.
I would definitely recommend Hotel Los Balcones to anyone visiting Cuenca and will stay there again whenever I return.
