Tipped off by a recommendation from a lifelong resident of this lovely, little town, we were enchanted by this beautiful, boutique hotel in Cuenca. The hotel radiates an Old World Spanish charm, complete with interior courtyard and fountain. Each room has its own unique style; they are spacious and comfortable. In the back of the hotel, an equally enchanting garden, in which drinks and snacks are served throughout the day, awaits the guests. One of the nicest features is upstairs on the second floor; a sprawling 'en suite' arrangement of sitting rooms and library beckons travelers to relax and chat, or to pull out a favorite book and get absorbed in its pages. The staff could not be more friendly or helpful, nor the pricing more attractive. Perhaps the crowning glory: turn down service includes warm water bottles tucked into the foot of the bed to ward off even the slightest chill that might come from the fresh evening air. (Cuenca is at 8,000 feet altitude - perfect for the equator!) We would come back here in a heartbeat.
