A well located hotel in the centre of the old town. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Clean and quiet. Possibility to have breakfast and lunch. The room was clean, colonial style. The hotel is not modern but charming.

I chose Hostal La Orquidea because of a recommendation from my employer in Cuenca City. I was very happy with this choice. La Orquidea is beautiful--paintings and decor were very nice. The staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful. One of the managers was bilingual in Spanish and English, so even if you come to Cuenca knowing some Spanish it was...

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.
