Stay here!!! A wonderful place
A wonderful place to stay in Cuenca. The place is beautiful. Their customer service is superb and very warm and pleasant. Nice breakfast. Could not be cleaner. Wonderful linens and beautiful furniture Yes, it can be a bit noisy in the buildings of this design and of this age, but a new building would not have the colonial charm of this lovely, centrally located hotel. Sorry that could not stay for longer than one night - they were fully bookef

New ve colonial hotel
The bed was not comfortable at all and it was pretty noisy. I did really like the staff, breakfast and the colonial ambiance of the hotel. We stayed 3 nights there so the bed really started to bother me.
