Best place you can stay in Cuenca. Excellent location, walking distance from most attractions. Breakfast is delicious and included. The rooms are homey, spacious and comfortable. There's hot water and strong wifi. The place itself is a historic residential complex transformed into a hotel and is very charming and homey. Alberto is a very interesting guy and an incredible host,...

This is a family run hotel and Alberto is justly proud of it. Our room was large and comfortable and we especially liked the common sitting area where we watched some of the hundreds of DVDs available for free. The breakfast was good and there was a good selection of breakfast options. The hotel is located in the old part...

We had the good fortune to spend three nights here. It is a one-of-a-kind experience. The hotel is a gorgeous old house that has been carefully restored to its original beauty. The home has been in the family for over 115 years and the pride of ownership is evident throughout. The entire house is furnished with treasured antiques that just...

Casa Ordonez is unique. There are many beautiful hotel properties in Cuenca, but none could surpass the supremely efficient service we received at Casa Ordonez. Our trip was delayed 8 hours out of Ft. Lauderdale and we missed our connection in Quito and arrived over an hour and a half late into the Cuenca airport. Edwin, from the Casa Ordonez...

I travel to World Heritage Sites and I like to stay in the downtown areas where I can walk to historical buildings and sites. Casa Ordonez is a beautifully restored 1890's home with about ten rooms to rent. Alberto, an owner along with his wife Diana and sister Maria, is a super, friendly host who forced me to use my...

Located in the old part of Cuenca is a wonderful boutique hotel: Casa Ordonez. This hotel was a former family home of the current owner. It provides a delightful glimpse into residential living decades ago. Some of the furnishings date back to this earlier period. The home has been lovingly restored and up-fitted with modern plumbing and electrical service. Our...

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we felt like we were at home. The breakfast was delicious and the owners are very welcoming and accommodating.

Casa Ordonez is a unique gem of a Hotel in the heart of El Centro. Family owned and operated. The building has been in the family for over a hundred years. Authentic Cuenca architecture antiques and culture abound. Each room is different and named for a family member. Clean, and attractive, comfotable linens and great service is why we enjoyed...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in February for a friend's wedding. We absolutely loved everything about Casa Ordonez. The building is historic and beautiful, with stained glass and tasteful decorations inside, and the rooms are equally beautifully decorated. The staff was always super friendly and helpful, and everyone spoke English (or at least enough for us...

“Around the courtyard on the upper level. Rooms facing street are fairly quiet as the city shuts down pretty quick after 7 or so.”
