We only had one night at Santa Lucia but it proved the perfect base as we explored the beautiful and beguiling city of Cuenca. Our room was high ceilinged, featuring an unexpected mezzanine above with two single beds, decorated and furnished throughout in keeping with the hotel's historic status. The hotel shared area ceilings are particularly impressive and add to the sense of grandeur, alongside gilt mirrors and plants aplenty. The bathroom was well laid out with good amenities, the bed extremely comfortable and the wifi, rare in Ecuador, blazing fast. A solid if unspectacular breakfast was in the hotel's Italian restaurant, while I just wish we had time to enjoy the stunning courtyard and atrium which defines grand Cuenca houses. As a nice touch, it offers free tablets alongside traditional magazine racks to let you choose to browse digitally or traditionally. All in all a fine 24 hours.
