Located in the heart of historic Cuenca, this intimate hotel is conveniently walkable to all of the prominent churches and markets. Behind the main building is a quiet courtyard full of flowers and hummingbirds that seems incongruous in the middle of the city. Although we had a tiny room -- much too small for two -- with a window on...

We stayed one night in Cuenca and had the luxury of staying at Mansion Alcazar. We're not particularly fussy about the rooms that we stay in while traveling because we don't spend a great deal of time in them. However, at Mansion Alcazar, I actually felt guilty that we weren't in a position to be spending more time there! The...

We stayed at this hotel Christmas Eve and it was a magical experience. The hotel allowed us a very early check in so that we could sit on their balcony and watch Cuenca's annual Niños parade. The view and the hospitality were wonderful and following the 7 hour (!) parade, we retired to our Garden room in the quiet rear...

This is a beautiful colonial mansion with an interior courtyard decorated with fresh flowers. It's in an excellent location within easy walking distance of the main squares, sights and a good selection of restaurants. However, the calibre of the staff varies and some speak little English. Also, the buffet breakfast is limited and the quality of the bread, cheese, cold...

We spent two nights at this hotel, one of which was our Anniversary. All the staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room was beautiful, the decor was very tasteful, and it overlooked the hotel garden. It was a delight to watch the numerous humming birds that were there. We ate in pergola part of the restaurant, which has a...

This beautiful hotel located in the old centre of Cuenca has everything we appreciatie in a hotel. The service was excellent, the food at the restaurant in accordance with the hotel level and the friendliness of the staff above what you may expect even at this level. The only minor point was the noise coming through the adjoining suite (...

What I Liked Most: The hotel itself is an old colonial house with a central courtyard and a well-kept garden; room size What I Liked Least: The loud piano music in the late afternoon, which permeates the entire hotel; bar closes early and there is no mini-bar in the rooms. Stayed here for a few days to relax after a...

We spent 2 nights at the Mansion Alcazar as part of a trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos. We were upgraded to the deluxe suite, enjoying views of the beautiful gardens and a ringside view of nesting hummingbirds in the palm tree outside our window. Little touches such as the chocolates, brooches on the pillow at night as well as...
