“Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We stayed for two nights here and loved it. Charming, sun filled and full of character with separate bedroom and large living area with microwave, stove and washing machine. Amazing views from the window and the two balconies. Lovely bathroom but only a hand held shower over the bath and the bed a little firm for our liking but otherwise a gorgeous little place. In a perfect location close to all the tourist attractions and restaurants and within walking distance of the new town although a vey steep trip coming back so have comfortable shoes!
It would have been great if there had been some tourist information in the apartment in English as we found the language barrier extremely difficult, even at the tourist information centre. However, Diego's English was very good and he was extremely helpful with everything we asked about.

Would highly recommend this lovely place.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

This hotel was used for a business retreat and it worked out really well. It was a relaxing atmosphere,wifi, space to spread out our work and as an extra bonus there are wonderful views especially at night. Beware wherever you stay in Cuenca that there is a lot of climbing. We had a bit extra as the tourist office gave us the wrong directions... But the owner was very proud of the care they have taken to make it so nice. We recommend this nice apartment.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2013

We stayed a couple of days in Cuenca. We were going to book our stay in El Parador but we decided to explore beyond and stay closer to the center of town. The apartments at El Rincon de los Poetas is a good choice. Lots of space for a reasonable place. The apartments are well supplied, bright and clean. There are also located in a side street and thus it is quiet. The walk to the plaza and the old city attractions is just 5 minutes.

The only reservation is that we were two couples and we thought we rented a two bedroom but the reality we found is 1 bedroom + 1 sofa bed in the living room which is not the most comfortable. We ended up asking to rent an extra apartment and the front desk was very accommodating giving us a special price

Overall a good place to stay, and good views from the windows
