Casa Ordonez is a unique gem of a Hotel in the heart of El Centro. Family owned and operated. The building has been in the family for over a hundred years. Authentic Cuenca architecture antiques and culture abound. Each room is different and named for a family member. Clean, and attractive, comfotable linens and great service is why we enjoyed...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in February for a friend's wedding. We absolutely loved everything about Casa Ordonez. The building is historic and beautiful, with stained glass and tasteful decorations inside, and the rooms are equally beautifully decorated. The staff was always super friendly and helpful, and everyone spoke English (or at least enough for us...

I stayed at Casa Ordonez in March 2013 for 4 days. I checked in and the rome the gave me had no hot water. Then they decided the boiler serving the room I had was not working. They moved me to a very large room right above the office. It was facing the street but there was no traffic noise....

My husband and I were in Cuenca for our first year wedding anniversary. I had mentioned this in an email when asking for a restaurant recommendation for the night we were there. As well as getting a few recommendations, we were surprised with gifts of roses and a bottle of wine, which the owner organised for us to to be...

Central to everything from banks and groceries to the city center, Casa Ordonez is a great place to stay as an introduction to Cuenca and Ecuadorian life. The casa itself takes you back in time to the way many families built their homes. The breakfasts are close to the best in the city including the most attentive staff anywhere. All...

This B and B is very beautiful. It is a short taxi ride from the airport. The moment you step into the property you are taken back in time as it used to be the owner's grandparents' home. It is filled with opulent vintage curios and household items. The amenities offered are excellent; and full marks to the owner and...

What an excellent place to stay! Cuenca is quite a busy place with plenty of traffic however Casa Ordonez is a quiet oasis to return to after a busy day of sightseeing. Alberto and his staff are very helpful and attentive and eager to assist. Our room, on the ground floor, was very comfortable and quiet. The solid construction of...

This hotel was one of the most interesting places I've stayed at. It has a long history in Cuenca and owned and operated by generations of family. Alberto is the proprietor and treats his guests magnificently. Ask him about the history of Cuenca and his family connections to it and you'll be entertained for sure. All of the staff were...

I have slightly mixed feelings about Casa Ordonez. It's a well-run, old-style place, very friendly, with good breakfasts, located right in the center of this charming city. Good service -- one of the fellows on the desk was very conscientious about finding me the information on the time and location of a parade one night. But my "junior suite" was...
