We traveled to Spain with friends who are well familiar with the area, and they booked a side trip from Madrid to Cuenca. This was one of the highlights of our trip. Cuenca is a charming village perched on a ridge between two gorges. The Posada de San Jose is a small hotel just behind the main Cathedral square. It...

I opted for a single room with shared bath for 30 euro. Stayed four nights. I love the small room that used to house monks. I felt I was in an authentic place in Spain. Everything including shared bath was spotlessly clean and comfortable. People at reception nice and helpful. Breakfast is well worth the 9 euro. Would definitely recommend...

This charming hotel has maintained its history and has the most wonderful atmosphere. It has been refurbished just enough to be comfortable but maintains its beautifully polished ancient floor tiles, rambling corridors, crooked beams and windows, and slightly sloping floors - I don't think you could find a single right angle in the whole building. The restaurant was excellent, with...

Spent one night at this historical hotel in the center of Cuenca during the first night of the San Mateo festival ... crazy crazy crazy ... but the hotel is beyond any regular review as its of the scale in ambiance, charme and history. Will go back ... but maybe not during the San Mateo:-)

I can understand how some people see this as a restaurant trying to be something it is not. It sells basically local dishes as if it is a more upmarket restaurant and you pay that little bit extra for this and the fantastic view from the terrace. Nevertheless we were quite happy with our choice of sharing four of the...

Yes, tricky to get there - but this adds to excitement! Old hotel with a labyrinth of corridors but these lead to rooms of all size and proportion. Room 5 was just perfect! Lovely cosy room with the most amazing balcony! Views were extremely pleasant to wake up to! Breakfast was lovely and in a room with further fabulous views....

We were recommended the Posada by a friend who knows Cuenca well, and were delighted to find it more than lived up to expectations. It is a lovely old building, characterful and quirky, and cool in spite of the heat. Our room (33) had not one but two terraces, both with stunning views over the gorge. The bathroom was a...

It is very well located and the room was nice. The bed was uncomfy though and made my back ache. The restaurant is in a lovely spot but you may have trouble getting in of an evening. My one gripe is staff were not well informed. For example on the last day I asked to book a taxi to the...

We stayed in a suite for 4 people that it was just perfect for my family ( 2 young children). The bathroom was big enough for the family. Amazing views. It is located just 30 metres away from the cathedral. The staff at reception was specially nice, I do not remember her name but the lady that assisted us when...

A privilege to be able to stay in a beautiful historic venue, in a wonderful Old Town. Great condition, lovely large rooms, comfortable beds, and friendly and helpful staff. Ask for room with a view and you will be amazed. Cuenca is spectacular town and should be on all itineraries. If staying there and you should to have time to...
