We had stayed there while working in Ecuador in the 1980-ies. We found the place almost exactly as it was back then and enjoyed this midrange hotel with perfect service and decent prices. Staff very helpful and polite. The breakfast room overlooking the river is an experience in itself. We liked the solid wooden furniture and panelling in the rooms....

Stayed during recent 3 day visit to the lovely city of Cuenca. Hotel Crespo is a good medium class hotel with very good location, close to the city centre, with nice bars and restaurants close by. Very good views from high floor rooms. Limited bar-& restaurant facilities.

We have stayed at the Hotel Crespo many times over the years and it has always been a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Decent prices for comfortable rooms furnished with style. It is close to all the Downtown amenities and by the river. Go for an early morning walk along the river; it will help de-wrinkle and un-stress.

Though well located, this hotel is not only old (and kitsch!) but really outdated. The wooded rooms are clean and oldfashioned. This is Agoust and we face a painstaking dilema: sleeping in a freezing room or turn on the heating and no sleeping at all, as the heating system makes an horrible noise! The breakfast is rather bad, the service...

As with many hotels in the historic district, this hotel is old and has a certain charm to it that is different from any other hotel. This is the charm of Cuenca in general. Crespo did seem a bit disjointed though in the layout and the feel of the rooms. Our room looked at an interior square that was very...

We had a fabulous room at this hotel. It is located in the old town overlooking the river. Our room had a huge balcony that overlooked the river and we had a sitting room as well as a bedroom and very nice bathroom. Lots of wood panelling throughout. Each floor has a different décor and art work in the common...

This very strange wooden ski lodge looks like it was build by Russians in the cold war. The rooms are old school and the public areas are a bit strange. 10 minute walk to the main square. Surrounded by numerous restaurants and with a nice view over the river. Moderate speed wifi. I honestly woke up and had no idea...

Charming hotel situated in a classic old mansion. Excellent service & location. The restaurant & our rooms over looked the river. A barking dog was unhappy one of the nights. Not sure of the prices since it was part of a package tour.

This hotel was conveniently located, but it was really old. You can hear everything going on outside the hotel and outside your room. The breakfast was good, but the service needs an upgrade. The lady that served us was in a bad mood. I don't think she liked to serve our kids.

Good location: several restaurants, ATM, pharmacy, hospital, Subway, and others nearby. Old hotel but well mantained. Hotel is next to Tomebamba river so make sure you get a nice river view (room 407 has a river view). Breakfast was also good. Variety of breads, coffee, juice and eggs. Parking was half a block away. This was not convenient for me...
