Perfect hotel in all areas
100% recommend staying here! We were greeted by the warm and friendly Alberto, who explained that this hotel was a family home at one point- very beautiful and well maintained with pride. It has so much character. During our 5 day stay, Alberto and all staff members were ultra helpful and charming. Alberto helped us arrange transportation to Vilcabamba and recommended things to do in Cuenca. I never expect people in other countries to speak English to us, but Alberto has perfect English, which is a nice bonus! Location is perfect- about a 5 minute walk to Parque Calderon and the bustling city center. There are lots of shops and restaurants nearby so you can take your pick with any type of cuisine. Our room had a private bathroom and was spacious. Breakfast each morning was prepared fresh with varying items from day to day. One morning is French toast and fruit, the next is avocado toast and eggs. We were always pleasantly surprised!! I cannot complain about one thing. If you are still debating which hotel for your Cuenca stay, you should choose this one.

Very Good 8.0
My brother and I very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Ordonez. It is centrally located in the historical district amidst all the sights. Our room was large, clean and spacious. The staff was attentive, courteous, and the breakfasts were very good. The only minor drawback is that that our room named, Isabel, had an interior view rather than a street view so it may feel a bit claustrophobic to some guests. Still, I highly recommend Casa Ordonez for visitors to the city of Cuenca!!

One of those few memorable hotel stays
This place has a unique charm that made us feel at home and also taken back in time. The care that the Ordonez family has taken to maintain a past-era Ecuadorian house built with an old Spanish design is tremendous. The house has been restored in a classic vintage. The 1890s house still has some original era doors and other features. For those features that are gone, the Ordonez family has done a remarkable job of getting replicas from the same era. The furniture, too, brings one back in time. Few hotels have a unique and extraordinary character that inspires a guest who walks in. This hotel is one of the few I’ve experienced. In addition, Alberto and the rest of the staff were extremely welcoming, making us feel at ease. They helped us in advising on tours, transportation, festivals, etc. They have great advice that helped us arrange affordable visits in Cuenca and the area. One of the other great aspects of this hotel is the location, right in the historical center of Cuenca, and only two blocks from the main square with the historical cathedrals. The location is ideal. Finally, the value of the hotel is outstanding. In other countries, this hotel would be very expensive. Yet this hotel, which has a “hostal” sign in front, is priced like a hostel yet has the ambiance and feeling of a high-end luxury boutique hotel. We extended our stay in Casa Ordonez and Cuenca because we so enjoyed the stay in both the lovely city and the lovely hotel.
