We spend two nights in this hotel, the room was clean, beds are good, friendly staff, breakfast is ok. The location of the hotel is superb, one block from the Cuenca Cathedral and the parque Calderon, in the center of the city. The parking is in a garage a block away from the hotel.

Nice place in the middle of the city. Beds are comfy and the rooms are clean. Sometimes a bit noisy from the bar across the road and the breakfast is not the best, small and not so tasty. Maybe just a little overpriced..

This was a nice hostal that was clean and comfortable. The room had a small fridge that was useful for my son's juices and milk. The breakfast the following morning was good. I would stay again and recommend this place to anyone with toddlers.

A very cool, historic building, the Orquidea is well situated near the Plaza downtown with restaurants and amenities close by. Our room was a nice suite facing the street with 2 small balconies, comfortable and roomy. This is definitely NOT a quiet location with traffic noise and early morning mass across the street. We found the floors to be squeaky...

Excellent position in the city centre but several objects contained in our luggages disappeared after we left them in a closed room while having a tour in the city in the morning of our departure day. Unfortunately we discovered the robbery only when we arrived in Guayaquil in the evening.

This hotel is located in the city center and it is inexpensive. However you get what you pay for. The bathroom are nasty and the room is outdated. Do your research before booking this hotel. The city of Cuenca is a jewel and the locals are very friendly. I'll be back but I will stay at a better hotel.
