We stayed at Mansion Alcazar for one night during a 48 hour visit to Cuenca. The hotel has been created from a stylish Spanish colonial mansion, offering opulence and modern amenities in a most attractive setting. The inner and outer courtyards are stunning. Our room was very comfortable, with a few quirks as one might expect in a converted older building. We enjoyed comfortable beds, plush towels, and very nice products in the bathrooms. The flat sceen TV gave us access to international stations in English, which we were craving after our Galapagos cruise, when our access to news media was limited. We had a great meal in the hotel's attractive restaurant, and we're pleased to meet the chef, who came out to inquire about our experience. The hotel staff are welcoming, gracious and very helpful. There are beautiful flowers inside and outside the hotel -- truly stunning.
Since we had a delay before our flight departure from Cuenca, we enjoyed relaxing in the hotel's bar, and and enjoyed a few snacks and drinks. The hotels was more than happy to look after our belongings as we enjoyed our second day exploring Cuenca with our guide. The hotel is centrally located, in a nice area.
I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely hotel to Cuenca visitors
