El Dorado Hotel, Cuenca
Noisy place with no internet. Worst internet ever
Many rooms face the street and are extremely loud at night. Changed rooms facing away from the street but the rooms are very hot. Without A/C you have to open the windows and have to cope with the sound of A/C downstairs of the hotel and apartments nearby with old cooling systems that sound horrible at night and kept me from sleeping well. The breakfast was excellent. However I cannot recommend the hotel due to the poor internet service which never worked during the seven days I was there. Can’t see myself staying there again. Will not recommend.

Generally fine.
I was on 7th floor. Great view but had to walk up from 6th floor. They said about 5 steps but it was 3Xs that. Bathroom was nice but very small. The tub/shower was dangerous to get in and put of. I fell. Breakfast was very nice.

Comfortable and close to the plaza
Warm welcome and a very accommodating staff. Breakfast was included and was a very nice buffet and cook to order eggs. We switched from a king room to a junior suite for a bit more room. Beds were comfortable, shower nice. Very close to the plaza and outstanding restaurants. No AC, so you have to open the windows, which is problematic if your room faces the street, because it’s a bit loud at night. Recommend you request a rear facing room.

Excellent location and service
We have been staying at El Dorado since the 1970's. We have gotten to know many of the staff and service is excellent. Retention of staff is a good sign of good management. There are many nice hotels in Cuenca. But none beat the location one block from the main plaza. Even though the hotel is fairly old, it has been renovated several times and doesn't have that "old" feel.
