If you're looking for something fancy and tons of amenities, this place may not be for you. But if you are looking for someplace where you are well cared for, safe, and will feel right at home...this is the place. I stayed with Carlos and Lala for almost a month while I looked for a more permanent home in Cuenca. They took wonderful care of me. I almost felt like one of the family. The location is in a quiet middle-class neighborhood, walking distance from El Centro, and no more than a $2 cab ride from almost anywhere. Lala knows everything and everyone, and can give great advice. Breakfast is excellent and a great lunch is available for an extra charge. They even brought hot soup to my room one day when I wasn't feeling well! Rooms are large and comfortable...I would stay there again in a minute.
