It was booked through booking.com and I thought I found a great discount and it was but once you arrived you noticed that it doesn't look like in the photo, room is pretty normal, i do think that price justifies what you receive as client and staff didn't do their job, I didn't like receptionist attitude

What I liked: Great location, right in the middle of the City and a couple of blocks away from Calderon park. Excellent for budget travelers. Breakfast is included and it is pretty good for the price. What I did not like: No elevator Small and bulky TV Not so comfortable room. In conclusion. You get what you pay. Balancing everything,...

I had a very dark room without any "real" windows. The room did not had any lamp beside the bed. When I pointed this out I got one that was barely working. The breakfast did not have any choices, all you got was a small bread, some jam and scrambled eggs. I did not enjoy my stay at this hotel....

I was not impressed at all with this hotel. My husband & I stayed there for 2 nights at $56 p/night. Service was excellent, I had to request a different room due to street noise and front desk helped right away. The hotel needs tons of improvements: new paint on walls ( they're very dirty), fans in the room (it...

So much noise from the streets I want to sleep in between the mattresses. These Taxis have no respect for hotels or the country in that respect. Worst part about this place so far and some drunk singing for an hour. I can hear a few cars without mufflers sounds like a Harley Davidson. I am online now at 330am...

The location right in the heart of Cuenca is amazing- only a couple of blocks from the main plaza and near a good many resaurants and all the interesting site. The hotel was one of the nicer ones we stayed in having mostly stayed in hostels up to this point. The rooms were very comfy and spacious, although the WIFI...

Located only a block from the main plaza, we actually stayed here twice for a total of 5 nights. We only planned to visit once and stay 3 nights, but had such a great time in Cuenca we dragged our friends back a few weeks later for a quick trip and they loved it! The front staff is very helpful,...

We stayed here for tow nights and LOVED it. We were also traveling by motorcycle and they let us park the bikes in a side room off the lobby. The price is right, clean rooms, and excellent location close to the city centro. There isn't an elevator so if you cant do stairs make sure to tell them before booking.
