We had a great stay at Casa del Aguila! At this point, the hotel has only been open for maybe 4 months following a 2-3 full restoration of a beautiful old home completed in 1802. Doesn't seem like they missed a single detail!
Our room, though it wasn't quite to the scale of a modern hotel, was well proportioned and had a nicely sized bathroom attached, which was complete with all modern fixtures (sink, toilet, shower, etc.). Bed was incredibly comfortable. No cable TV in our room... but who needs it? You're in Cuenca!
We enjoyed the daily breakfast in a different patio, terrace, sitting room, or courtyard everyday. The staff was great and the food was delicious!
Also, the location of the hotel is really quite good. It's on one of the more quiet streets in the evening, yet close enought that you can be right in the middle of things with a 10-15 minute walk. There are great restaurants close by (try Tiesto's) and it is also a short walk to beautiful churches, plazas, and stores.
The staff knew a lot of great things to do in the area and even helped connect us with a great guided hike through Cajas National Park! An added bonus, if your Spanish isn't great, they do have bi-lingual staff.
Overall, we had a great stay here! For the price, it's a great deal.

- Is located in a pictorial colonial-style building, which takes us back to a time full of tradition and magnetism in Cuenca. Located in one of the most beautiful places of the Historical center, the most important attraction is the diversity of all elements spread in its common areas and the magnificent conservative details in its decoration, which provide a different personality to the hotel. ... more less
