“Very comfortable apartment - GREAT location”
Reviewed 16 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I spent a month in this apartment, and had a great time. Being on the fourth floor turned out to be a good thing. After arriving from Orlando, FL, the altitude was a bit of a surprise, even though I was totally aware of Cuenca's elevation. Consequently, I liked the excercise. Compared to the 84 steps up to el centro, it was a breeze. But after each week, those steps were becoming easier.

There is so much to see, and do in Cuenca, that a month didn't rerally seem like a long time. There are many museums, churches, and sights in el centro that it was impossible to ever get bored.

Also, while in Dano's apartment, I was lucky enough to be there for EC's Independance Day, and Corpus Christie. It was at the first night of Corpus Christie, right after having a great $1.00 dinner from 1 of the food vendors, that a huge thunderstorm came through. I just ducked under a cabana at the flower market, and met a couple from AZ. After talking for about 20 min., we came to find out that we were all staying in the same apartment building.

Also, having been there for a month allowed me to take a week, and travel throughout EC. Went up to Quito, and Mitad del Mundo. Then off to Guayaquil, and to Salinas, on the Pacific Coast. I plan on living in EC within the next 6-18 months. Being from Florida, I decided that Salinas is where I'll call home. But will DEFINATELY return to Cuenca, and stay in Dano's apartment again.

Also, thanks Dan, for EVERYTHING !!!

Dang...my first 4 rating. But, it's not the end of the world. Just want to add a perspective here for people to consider. Yes, it is a small apartment (as stated, 500 sqft in the listing). So, 2 br's, 1 bath, living and kitchen area fitting into that amount of sqft tells you the spaces are going to be small. That, and the fact that it's a 100 yr old building and rooms are commonly small here unless you're in a much more modern building. I am diligent in full disclosure, which is why I also states the size of the bed and provide photos of every room including the kitchen. Depending on your length of stay, the daily cost may fall between $23 - $35 a night. This is the same or less (as in longer stays) then a mid-level hotel where all you have is a bed in a room and a bathroom, and most rooms will be very small. However, for the same price, this apartment provides a laundry porch, an extra bedroom/office, all the functionality of a kitchen (albeit short on counter space), stereo, and a large selection of DVD's. A great value for the $. When researching a property to rent, take a good look at the photos they provide. In this price range, you will commonly see small kitchenettes with small (one bowl) sinks and tiny refrigerators where you practically have to get on your knees to look in (LOL!!). This unit has fridge double the size of what is normally provided. And, the stove is also a common size, smaller than what we're used to 'back home'. But, it does have 4 burners and an oven. If, in your looking, you must have a full-sized kitchen, larger rooms, and more sqft to roam around in then you will need to up the amount of $$ you expect to pay to the $55 - $100 a night range. Come informed and with realistic expectations based on the country/city/culture you are going TO rather then where you're FROM and you won't be disappointed.

Thanks Mara for leaving a review and giving me the opportunity to add another perspective. And, thanks so much for your patience during the check-in process due to the late (and messy) check-out of the previous person.
