Hostal Nuestra Residencia
Ranked #26 of 83 Specialty Lodging in Cuenca
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The location is in a quiet upscale residential neighbourhood, close to the river. Two buses going to El Centro stop at the corner of the street and you are at most a 15 minute ride away. Also close to a Supermaxi. A taxi ride to El Centro is $2.50.

The Hostal is modern and very clean and comfortable. Blanca and Pablo are very kind and helpful hosts who speak good English. I prefer this location over a more central one in El Centro which is less secure and has more street noise. Do not count on every night to be peaceful though. Like in every residential neighbour hood there are always dogs in most houses who are kept outside. There will always be one who starts barking at random and sets off a bunch of others. Better get used to this in Ecuador...

I paid $28 for a single room on a daily basis and $150/week.

We had 3 rooms between our travelling group and all of them were wonderful. Each room is comfortable and unique. The beds were very comfortable and we slept very good every night. The location is very quiet. We each had a nice flat screen TV and internet throughout the house. Breakfast in the morning was great. The house is beautiful and we had the use of all of it. We sat at the dining room table in the evening and played cards. The bathrooms are modern and we always had lots of hot water for showers. We will stay there again for sure. The owners were so helpful. They called us taxis and gave advice on where to go and NOT to go. They speak English and want to help. The river is a block away and we were able to walk many places for "free". Stay here if you want a relaxing stay in Cuenca with terrific hosts!

Room Tip: Room number 3 is great for a couple.

We were not able to sleep due to all the noise. Snoring from the neighbors, tv on all night, the party continued once guests returned. When anyone walks around the noise is amplified!. Then early in the morning all the noise gets LOUDER. GREAT PARTY PAD. New York Prices with disrespectful people. Do not stay here if you expect any sleep.
This is an accurate accounting.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere if you are looking for sleep. If you do stay $10.00 USD is too much for one night.

I have been staying here since February 24, 2012 and it is owned by the friendliest most gracious Ecuadorians I have met here. My room and bathroom is spacious, the whole downstairs area is for the customers (Full Kitchen, Beautiful Dining Room a small window seat and a formal living room) and the owners live on the top floor and leave you to your privacy. There is fresh juice each morning (not from a bottle or container), fresh bread each morning, home made jam and eggs the way you want them with either tea, coffee, or hot chocolate. There is no stress and Blanca, Pablo and daughter Claudia are very friendly and accommodating to all who choose the Nuestra Residencia. It is an English speaking family..

Nuestra Residencia is in a nice quiet location one block from the Tomebomba river. Nice clean rooms with English speaking owners. A short bus or cab ride to the historic city center. Good value.
