The service es nice the breakfast ok, but we really liked the old colonial building and character. The room was really nice, the loft would be nice for kids or such. The location was great too, a few blocks from plaza Calderon and a few blocks from san sebas.

We did like this hotel and I would return here as well. The only drawbacks to it have also been noted by others. The sound does echo here really badly. Fortunately there was only one other group there while we were staying there, and they were by no means loud. However when they came in you really knew they did....

We loved staying at Hostal La Posada Cuencana! The location is extremely convenient. It is a short ride to the airport. The hotel is in walking distance to several artesian shops, restaurants, and historic sites. The rooms are very clean with updated bathrooms, and breakfast is served every morning. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful.

We spent two nights here, it was a nice room with a loft with two extra beds, the breakfast was nice and the folks who were at the desk were plenty nice. The location is also fantastic, only a few blocks from the main plaza. Just a note, the room No. 1 that we had had a shelf for the...

This is a converted colonial mansion with all the charm you would expect from it's history. Much of it has been wonderfully restored and/or designed to be a quite lovely. There are a few drawbacks, however. The two issues I had were that the rooms not facing the street have no outward facing windows and no ventilation. That said, the...

The colonial look of this place is great. It's a great atmosphere, quiet, with friendly staff. The breakfast is really good. Rooms were clean, shower and sink bad hot water! Only complaint is that we got two beds and the room was quite small. Oddly, some of the singles were way bigger and could have easily accommodated two beds. Also...

La posada cuencana is a small colonial hostal (8 rooms) located very close to the old city center in Cuenca. The rooms are small and the wooden floor is a bit noisy, still the place is really nice and clean. Breakfast was a bit dissapointing "continental" (boring). Better to have local Ecuadorian breakfast in the street. I recommend the place.

This hotel is in the historical district, nice area, close to touristic want to be but very thin walls, creaky floors like my grand mother's house but good breakfast. Great service. I didn't like having to ask to unlock the doors every time I wanted to get out.
