good location, clean and decent breakfast. The food for lunch and dinner are not that good, there are other restaurants that are better. I would stay here again but I would never have meals here. I had a nice room with a balcony, hot water was plenty and the beds where comfortable.

Charming, personal, excellent location in the centre of the old town, and very clean. Hot water gets scarce when the hotel is full, but otherwise wonderful and exceptional value. A group of us stayed for a week and it was wonderful.

The hotel is located in a perfect location for walking around the city of Cuenca. The hotel itself is quite charming and you feel like you have gone back in time as you walk the hallways.

The location of the hotel is great, within walking distance to all the city center sights and all the restaurants and shops there. This said, the restaurant in the hotel serves great food and is certainly worth a visit (great for those tired evenings where you just don't want to venture far anymore...). The staff was helpful with booking a...

My family and I stayed in a double room on the 1st floor off the main courtyard. The room was pleasant, with simple furniture and a TV. We did find that it was quite noisy until the restaurant closed and the tidying up finished, about 10 pm, which created a problem trying to get the kids to sleep. We ate...

This hotel was pretty nice, my family and I stayed one night. It was not busy but the feel of the hotel was elegant. Breakfast was great and staff were very friendly. The restaurant in the hotel was also worth a visit, had the Churrasco, best steak I had in Ecuador.
