10/10 Exceptional

Great Value Hotel close to the historic center
This hotel is super close to the historic center of Cuenca, which as a whole is very safe. You can walk at night, get amazing food, etc. The hotel staff is super friendly, and everyone is very kind. Things to watch out for: the "game" room is a faulty pool table and foosball set, the internet on the 3rd floor is spotty, and the breakfast/hotel food is subpar. Long story short, not the type of hotel you want to spend the day in, but hey you're right next to everything you'd ever want to explore!

Clean and Spacious, but Average and Outdated
I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The staff at Hotel Cuenca were excellent and efficient, and the artwork in the hotel is very attractive. My room and bathroom were clean and spacious, the shower water pressure was good, and there was adequate hot water. However, I found the tub/shower area to be dangerous, i.e., slippery with no grab bars, with very high sides that added to the potential for slipping when stepping out of the shower. There was insufficient lighting in the bedroom and the bathroom, especially over the bathroom sink. Although there are many tourists from the U.S. visiting Cuenca, there were no English language TV stations. In the hallway outside of the rooms, there is a small step that is "camouflaged" by dark brown carpet with a geometric pattern that renders the step nearly invisible, causing me not to see the step, tripping, and falling heavily onto my knees. The step was not highlighted by any kind of fluorescent orange or yellow stripe or tape.

Very helpful staff
Very convenient to historical sites. Room and bathroom were small, but very clean. Restaurant had very good food, but could use new seating. Can't say enough about how we were treated by the staff. All three shifts the staff was superb.

Hotel staff was so helpful.
Unfortunately, my wife was sick upon arrival and they let us check in early so she could lay down. The following day they called for a doctor and a staff employee came up to the room to act as an interpreter. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable during our stay. We would stay there again.

Nice hotel
Stayed two nights; rooms were large, up to date; breakfast was good; 2 negatives: the room was very stuffy and humid, needs a ceiling fan to circulate the air, loud if you're room is near the stairway; Location of hotel is perfect for walking in the city center

Hotel Cuenca
It was easy to get around the city because of its central location. The hotel even helped get me a driver to ride me thru the mountains down to the beach. The sights on that trip were amazing. Everyone was so friendly & helpful. I will be coming back.
