“Reasonable hotel in good neighborhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

This is a boutique hotel about a 20 minute walk from the old town. The rooms are very clean, the restaurant is charming and the staff are helpful. Avoid the fourth floor as this is the attic with slanted ceiling and no view.

This hotel is located a 20 minute walk from the central area in a really safe and pleasant neighbourhood. We were on a G Adventure trip and this was without question the best hotel we stayed in on our 82 day tour. The hotel was beautifully decorated and everywhere was so clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We saw the Trip Advisor award on display in reception and this hotel truly deserves this award as it clearly prides itself on its high standards and high quality.

The rooms were homely with a tv, very comfortable beds and lovely de-cor; we felt very much at home here and whilst the weather in Quito was chilly we were so cosy in our room. The breakfast for $6 was excellent with plenty of choice and the hotel was very near the Supermaxi supermarket which was an wonderfully stocked supermarket less than a 10 minute walk away.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel to fellow travellers and would definitely go back there in the future if I had the opportunity.

We loved this place. Checked in for one night on a short notice trip where we just showed up in Cuenca. We extended for the full 4 nights we were in town. Right near the Supermaxi grocery and easy walk to central. We were 201 which was a good spacious room. it's on the road side and you can hear that, but there is not much traffic after about 10 or 11 and not until 7 am or so. we liked the room. the front desk staff was great and very helpful.

We returned to La Casona 3 years after our last visit and were delighted to find a few improvements. The restaurant has been upgraded and now has a dinner menu; breakfast is buffet style and more than adequate. Our room was smaller than our last visit but still very comfortable and spotlessly clean as is the whole hotel. We felt very "at home".

The hotel was very clean and well cared for the rooms were cosy and well kept.
The staff were also attentive to our needs in everyway. The location is a bit out of the way depending on what you are looking for if you wat to be close to the center of town and the action it is a little way to go. If you want paece and quiet and a nice neiborhood its a great choice.

If you're looking flr a charming, family-owned small hotel with an intimate dining room and good food in Cuenca, Ecuador -- then La Casona is for you. English is spoken by some of the staff.

Located in an upscale neighborhood walking distance from Old Town Cuenca. Beautiful Hotel with an excellent staff, about half of which spoke at least some English. WiFi and computers with printer available. The room, while not huge was fairly good sized. Restaurants and a new mall (shop at Supermaxi only if you want to pay USA prices and poor attitudes for much poorer quality than you can find in old town). Breakfast was provided and was pretty good. We can't wait to go back!!
