Stayed here for 5 nights and I highly recommend it! The building is stunning and in a perfect location. The bedroom was wonderful with an exceptionally comfortable bed. Every morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, fresh juice, toast, coffee and a choice of omelette, scrambled egg or French toast. Do not hesitate to stay here!

There's hot water and strong wifi. The place itself is a historic residential complex transformed into a hotel and is very charming and homey. Alberto is a very interesting guy and an incredible host,...

This is a family run hotel and Alberto is justly proud of it. Our room was large and comfortable and we especially liked the common sitting area where we watched some of the hundreds of DVDs available for free. The breakfast was good and there was a good selection of breakfast options. The hotel is located in the old part...

Casa Ordonez is unique. There are many beautiful hotel properties in Cuenca, but none could surpass the supremely efficient service we received at Casa Ordonez. Our trip was delayed 8 hours out of Ft. Lauderdale and we missed our connection in Quito and arrived over an hour and a half late into the Cuenca airport. Edwin, from the Casa Ordonez...

Located in the old part of Cuenca is a wonderful boutique hotel: Casa Ordonez. This hotel was a former family home of the current owner. It provides a delightful glimpse into residential living decades ago. Some of the furnishings date back to this earlier period. The home has been lovingly restored and up-fitted with modern plumbing and electrical service. Our...
