Rarely do you get service and quality at any price like you find at Casa De Las Rosas in Cuenca. The eight room hotel in a restored Colonial Home in a location within 5-10 minutes of anywhere in the centro historico (old Cuenca) is top notch. Every room has a private bathroom with updated fixtures (the two rooms we occupied both had double vanities). There is a drawing room just off the entrance with books and fresh coffee, tea, pastries and Ecuadorian chocolate. Then another central courtyard where breakfast is served daily from 7:30-10:30. Breakfast is interesting in that the couple that manages the hotel serves different exotic fruit, homemade juices and pastries every morning so that over our six day stay we never had the same thing twice. The english speaking daughter of the owner was very kind and helpful arranging for just about every activity we enjoyed during the stay. Tours, meals, advice on attractions, even a private 1.5 hour tour by taxi around the outlying areas of Cuenca for $8 an hour. Only one minor drawback and this is being addressed. The blue room and orange room (with Juliette balconies over the street) are a bit noisy. New, double insulated windows have already been purchased but they are having a hard time finding a qualified craftsman to install them (any recommendations)? All other rooms are very quiet. Especially the Verde suite which on the second floor overlooks the inter-garden. The only other drawback is if you are not able to walk a few blocks, but then, the hotel staff is on call 24 hours a day and can always call you a taxi in a minute or two. Most guests are from abroad as the locals have yet to hear about this rare gem. I would never stay anywhere else when coming to Cuenca!
