“A bit overpriced but very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

This place is an excelent location, but can be rather noisy at night both from street noise and internal noise (the restaurant inside has live music at times and can get a bit loud at night.) THe room is nice although the double bed was two beds put together and had a crack. The hotel and restaurant staff are all extremely nice. We loved the shower 0 it has a wide overhead shower head, lots of shower attachments on the side, and a working radio inside the shower - you can even change the color of the lights in the shower.

WE have friends who live in the area and they were shocked to find out the price of this place; they said that we could get much better deals in town; so you might want to look around before reserving this place.

We booked here at the last minute after changing our travel plans and not being able to secure additional nights at a hotel which we already had comfirmed reservations. I am so glad we did!! This place is gorgeous!! Everyone is so friendly and anxious to please and make sure that you are taken care of...From the moment we walked through the door and was greeted by Henry, we felt taken care of. Our bags were taken to our room and Henry showed us around. I felt in love with the room from the beginning. It does not feel like your usual impersonal and sterile hotel room but like you are in the home of a friend or relative. The shower itself is a treat and I have never used anything like it...but it has me wanting to see if I can refit my shower at home. Our room is located on the front of the hotel with a balcony and I plan to pose for pictures on it before we leave. My only regret is that I could not stay the additional two nights we are here in Cuenca. You can have no qualms about booking here...you will love it..It is a short walk from Central Plaza and many restaurants within a few feet away . We liked one so much where we ate dinner until we returned there the next day for lunch (Las Campanos)- check it out. if you stay. 3.00 buys you a complete lunch Ecuadorian style which includes delicious soup, rice, chicken, side of tomatoe, potatoe and a dessert and beverage. It seemed to be a favorite of the locals for their noon day meal. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to sample the hotel restaurant as it is only open Thursday to Sunday. You will not regret making this your stay while here in Cuenca whether its only for a few days or months. Enjoy!!

Room Tip: If you prefer not to hear the noise from the street below, ask for a suit on the back side of hotel...

I was sick and everyone at the hotel was so concerned and helpfull. Sending me to the local clinic for treatment. If ever in Cuenca again this is my hotel. I rate this hotel a five star due to the hotel staff.

We had to stay here because our baby was operated on in the city. They were very understanding, even had a play pen for him to sleep in. Also, in the eating area they have a highchair. Many restaurants in Cuenca don't recognize babies too much, so it was nice to have these special items. Food was amazing at California Kitchen too.

These guys are trying their best to provide a perfect experience. We booked at the last minute through a booking company, not expedia which showed it sold out. Any how, supper attractive, courtyard arrangement, with three floors of rooms arranged around the courtyard. Our room was delightful, spacious and ample size. Could eat off the floors. Booked a double but got three beds. Flat Screen with lots of English chanels, but no CNN English. A funny little shower, nice toiletries. Big filtered water containers to refill your water bottles, and a chocolate treat to boot. Spotless. A few issues Only provides one roll of tp, which always leaves me insecure, but staff happy to provide more. In house restaurant only open thurs and weekend. Super quiet during the week,then music and sounds of food and frivolity fill the courtyard. Unfortunately for us the restaurant had run out of fish leaving only meat choices which I don't eat, so we wandered out for dinner. If you wanted to go to sleep before 9 on those nights, I think you might become frustrated. Conviently located without being right downtown. Although centro pretty quiet, too. One bed was kind of hard. Other comfy.

Also can link you to a friendly, helpful cab driver, Franklin, for exploring outside of town. Town itself very walk able
