Casa Del Aguila couldn't be lovelier, and thanks to a full restoration, bathroom fixtures are first class as well (often lacking in Colonial hotels). We enjoyed soaking up the ambiance, whether on one of the outdoor patios (located on all three floors), or the inner courtyard. Buffet breakfast is served off the ground floor garden terrace and was delicious. Each... More

We stayed with my family for the weekend during our visit to Cuenca. The place has a beautiful colonial charme with an inner patio and very comfortable rooms. The Staff was very welcoming and the hotel location is pretty close to the city center. My only observations are the lack of a restaurant and the pillows were not as comfy.

Casa del Aguila is a restored colonial house full of antique furniture and paintings. The entrance is romantic with an interior patio with a fountain in the middle with floating rose petals and candles lined up along the entrance floor. There is also a small charming garden outside the breakfast room and you can eat inside or outside. The breakfast... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Nothing much to see from the outside but it is very nicely restored on the inside. However, we really felt that this was more a museum than a place to stay.

I have just stayed 2 nights here and was charmed by the place and impressed by the helpful staff. The lack of a TV only added to the atmosphere. The stairs might prove a problem for the less mobile.

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Excellent service--staff made restaurant reservations for us and booked tours, all of which turned out to be right on the money. If I ever find myself in Cuenca again, I would stay here.

Casa del Aguila is a small hotel, but very clean, cozy, comfortable and charming. I will recommend this hotel to travellers that are not looking for luxury, but comfort and relaxation. The rooms are small, but they serve the purpose.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Is located in a pictorial colonial-style building, which takes us back to a time full of tradition and magnetism in Cuenca. Located in one of the most beautiful places of the Historical center, the most important attraction is the diversity of all elements spread in its common areas and the magnificent conservative details in its decoration, which provide a different personality to the hotel. ... more   less
