Overall one of the best hotel experiences ever and I travel a lot. The place is rich in history and character, well located for walking around, with a staff that deserve the Nobel prize in tourism. Several young people, some studying tourism at the local university, interesting to talk with and helpful beyond belief. Good breakfast on the roof terrace, too. Here's the cultural tweak. Our pleasant room, along with many others, opened onto an interior courtyard with a restaurant on the ground floor center. We live in the Southwestern U.S. desert with low noise. Sometimes the noise level from the courtyard in the evening was a little high for us but it never ran late and probably any normal person with a tolerance for ambient urban background noise wouldn't notice it. Bottom line is we would gladly return for another stay but plan on heading for a quiet bar on Saturday night when the music is live. Otherwise the perfect place to stay in Cuenca.
