This hotel was a good value at less than $50 (double), is quiet (away from the downtown) and well appointed rooms.
Because this hotel is located across the river from the central district it is nice and quiet . Of course, there still is Ecuadoring honking, car alarms and dogs barking so bring ear plugs if you are sensitive. There is a restaurant in the hotel, but it shutdown at around 10 pm even on a weekend.
The rooms were clean and had decent bedding. The staff didn't speak much English but understood my poor Spanish.
It is a 10 - 15 minute walk to the downtown. Although Ecuador isn't always the safest place, we did feel comfortable walking around in the early evening in Cuenca. It seemed to be a properous area and there weren't any groups of young men hanging around.
