Spent 3 nights here in a room without a bathroom. This was one of my favorite places I stayed in all of Ecuador, and I´m almost sad I didn´t spend much time in the hotel itself. Cuenca can be loud, but I didn´t hear any street noise at all in my room. The interior courtyard and the lobby space were both beautiful and looked much nicer than expected for the price ($19). Room was also very nice. Breakfast was fine. Included food is minimal - bread, marmalade, cheese, juice, coffee, tea. But if you want extra food, it´s a good value (eggs for $1, yogurt parfait for $1.50).
My only negative was a lack of hot water one night for my shower - I could only get warm. But otherwise, I have nothing but positives to say about this hotel.
