El Dorado Hotel, Cuenca
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.

El Dorado Hotel, Cuenca
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.

Great New Year's Eve at El Dorado
We stayed on New Year's Eve as an in-town getaway to enjoy all the festivities. A great night, including beautiful live guitar music in the restaurant. El Dorado's restaurant has some of the best food in Cuenca and didn't disappoint on NYE. And on New Year's Day, the breakfast ran until 11 and was such a treat. We have been hotel guests multiple times and always enjoy everything. Helpful, friendly staff is a huge plus.

Nice bed but road under construction
The entire block in front of the hotel is under construction. There is no A/C but you can have a fan brought up. Loved having a king sized bed.
