We were very happy with the location, a fairly easy walk to the sights we wanted to see or a $5 taxi to Turi Mirador and the Vega Pottery. The hotel was a 180-year-old building that had been renovated very nicely in the last few years. The spa shower was especially enjoyable. The room was lovely -- hand-painted decor and...

We spent 5 nights at Los Balcones and loved it. Quality linens/mattresses and pillows with great wi-fi and satellite TV. It's a well maintained, quiet, quaint boutique hotel and the owner/staff were on hand at all times. Centrally located. We arrived at the hotel on my friend's birthday, after a long bus ride from Cotopaxi, and we ordered room service....

Loved our room and the included breakfast. The staff was helpful with suggestions of places to see or eat, calling cabs and providing directions. It was on a busy street so ask to be on the one without buses.

This lovely colonial hotel is located within walking distance of an abundance of restaurants, plazas, churches, the river, and other tourist attractions. I stayed 4 nights while I was taking Spanish classes and it felt like a 'home away from home'. The service is top-notch - super-friendly and helpful. The room I had (#4) was spacious and clean with a...

We loved our stay here. Stayed in room 10 which was great, top floor one the corner with balcony. Windows with sound proof glazing. Really beautiful hotel with super nice and helpful staff. Breakfast the best so far on our trip in Ecuador and served on the sunny indoor terrace. Highly recommended!

We spent a year in Ecuador with our first two months at Los Balcones. They are wonderful there. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They are a home away from home. The hotel is pet friendly as we brought our 18 year old kitty with us. She enjoyed it as well. The restaurant is good too!

Los Balcones has an old world charm. Lots of wood everywhere, internal balcones, large comfortable rooms; a far cry from a typical corporate hotel and much better than many. Our room was spacious with a huge bed, a seating area and a decent sized bathroom complete with a modern shower. Staff were helpful but not effusive, carrying our bags to...

We stayed in Hotel Los Balcones in December during our brief visit to Cuenca. The hotel is conveniently located a few blocks from the main square. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable (I believe the gentleman's name was Paulo). Our room was a corner room on the second floor with a balcony. It seemed that it had been...
