Reviewed May 23, 2013

Cuenca is always nice to visit. I made it to Cuenca about 5 times and I still enjoy it. It's the first time staying in this hotel and I'm satisfied. Rooms are nice and clean, lobby is warmly decorated and the staff is friendly. The location is good, not far from the main square

This used to be a big house or a mansion converted into an hotel . The decoration is very typical of the colonial era and definitly has charm . It is in a good location as it is less than a 10 minutes walk to the cathedrals .
The service was very good and the staff very helpful . The breakfast was excellent and plentiful . The rooms are big , nicely decorated and the squeaky wooden floors add some realism to the age of this posada . There is a wonderful italian restaurant which communicates with the main hall of the hotel .WiFi is free but works with various degrees of success depending on the location of the room .
We were a group of 12 and everyone appreciated his stay at the hotel . It is also an excellent value for the price !

Room Tip: Rooms close to the stairs on the second floor were found to be noisier .

We enjoyed our visit to the Posada del Angel in June 2012. We were very comfortable and the place is pretty and well located, being only several blocks from the center of the historic district.
We walked everywhere and found the streets around the inn to be lovely and interesting.
There is a wonderful art museum just one block away with a lovely park.
It is a very good place to stay when visiting Cuenca.

Room Tip: Rooms that do not face onto the dining room are quieter in the mornings. If you like to sleep later...

Carved out of an historic colonial home, this is a strikingly handsome hotel, both outside and inside. Walk in and be greeted by a friendly, helpful staff. Public spaces, like the large lobby and courtyard/dining room where guests start the day with a filling breakfast, are quite comfortable. Rooms are simply furnished but more than adequate. Beds are comfortable, too, and water pressure in the en suite bathroom is impressive. Noise levels can be high and the wood floors are pretty squeaky. The posada is well located and of good value.

Con respecto al ruido de los pisos, el hotel esta ubicado en una casa colonial de mas de 120 años de antiguedad en la hemos tratado de coservar la mayor parte de su estado colonial por lo que la reconstruccion del hotel tomo 2 años cuando empezamos , el hotel guarda armonia con la historia por lo que no podemos poner pisos de cemento para que no exista este ruido de esta forma perderia mucho el valor historico de lo que es hospedarce en una antigua casona por lo que en una proxima visita recomendamos hospedarce en una de las habitaciones del frente del hotel ya que estas cuentan con paredes de adobe que tienen un espesor de 1,50m y no permiten que pase el ruido si tienen un sueño ligero, para las demas personas el hotel seguira conservando este tipo de piso de madera para conservar la historia del lugar. se tratara mas adelante de poner alfombras decorativas que no tapen la madera antigua pero que si reduscan el ruido en el pasillo.

Gracias.

we stayed at this place for three nights. It is decorated very nicely, the complimentary breakfast is excellent, the onsite restaurant is great. The staff at this hostal are awesome, and most persons working the front desk speak english. the restaurant was full of english speakers so it might not be the place for a really foreign experience. The walls are a bit thin, but there was plenty of hot water. i would definitely stay at this place if i went back to cucenca. there was one thing that was annoying. the bedframes stuck out further than the mattresses. You had to be careful not to slam your toes on them... but that is minor.

I would have been tempted to rate this place higher if it wasn't for the fact I scarcely got a wink of sleep. It's attractive enough, an old colonial building with two indoor patios, but sound carries from first thing in the morning when they make breakfast to late at night with people coming through in reception. I could also hear the neighbour's TV blaring until the early hours. There is no privacy as well. I opened the curtain to my room when I got up stark naked only to see a family passing by my window on their way to breakfast.

Room Tip: Not sure there is a good room here.

Tomamos muy en cuenta su opinion sobre el ruido , lo primero que queremos expresarle es que el hotel esta ubicada en una casona colonial de 120 anios de historia en la cual guardamos un respeto sobre la historia del lugar se reconstruyo con adobe y madera que a pesar de ser mas caro que el cemento guarda la historia del lugar, de cierta forma si hubieramos echo un hotel de cemento y ladrillos no existiria el ruido pero tambien el ambiente colonial con el que contamos tampoco existiria , con respecto a los precios, el hotel esta catalogado como hostal de categoria de primera y el servicio de igual forma , con los servicios que se entregan el precio es el adecuado , ademas en cuenca existen hoteles mas barato si existen pero el servicio la limpieza y la atencion no es la misma nosotros tratamos como hotel de hacerlo sentir como en casa. Con respecto a las medidas que se han tomado para minimizar el ruido de las habitaciones Hostal Posada del ANgel a empezado a realizar el cambio de las ventanas por insonoras este proceso tardara aproximadamente un anio lo hemos empezado desde febrero del 2013 esperamos que en febrero 2013 contar con ventanas insonoras para todos nuestros huespedes.
Con el tema de internet el hotel cuenta con una linea de 4 mb de internet , aveces existen problemas pero son problemas del proveedor, por lo que cuando existe un problema llamamos para que en el instante lo resuelva el proveedor por lo que me imagino que nunca aviso a la recepcion para que solucionara el problema.
De igual forma agradecemos su visita y todas sus inquietudes y problemas las atenderemos para resolverlas y para mejorar cada dia mas.

De Parte de Hostal Posada del Angel tratamos de contactarno con esta persona ya que no existio o nunca se alojo en este hotel , asi que la opinion nos parecio suspicas pero no hubo como hacer nada pero de igual forma tomamos esta opinion como una verdadera y trtaremos de mejorar cada uno de los puntos que nos escribieron.

Saludos
