Very scenic hotel which was a convent, in a beautiful location about 7 k out of Cuenca. It has a lovely atmospheric courtyard, and an appealing lounge area with big lounges. Both would be lovely places to have a drink, if you could locate some serving staff. Parking was free. We had a double room, quiet spacious and nicely furnished....

It's an attractive old hotel, with a nice dining courtyard. But it could be a lot better than it is and it's very over-priced for what you get - poor value.

The bad things...

It's a good place to stay if you want to visit not only historical Cuenca but...

Cueva Del Fraile is located on the Buenache Rd outside Cuenca after the most spectacular drive. It is a suberb location and building which could, with a bit more thought about the lighting and other guest facilities could be absolutely magnificent! It is great value for money and the staff are friendly and helpful but you will need at least...
