Lovely Colonial hotel, maybe the nicest in town. Greeted with greatly appreciated small glasses of Amaretto when we arrived, after driving 8 hours through the Andes from Quito because our flight was cancelled due to volcanic eruption. Couldn't find a bellman, but guess they focused on the drink instead, which was ok! Had a lovely interior room with a canopy...

Since we live here, some of us decided to have a dinner here for Christmas. Have to say it is absolutely the most beautiful hotel in Cuenca, with gardens to match! The dinner was pre-fixed n had a wonderful menu, however the portions were very small, and the service was not relaxed, as they served everything within an hour! Might...

We enjoyed very much staying 3 nights in this colonial housel, full of atmosphere and beautifully decorated. The rooms (suites) were nice but more very spacious, overlooking a luxurious garden, we only regretted the temperature was so cold inside the rooms (we would go into our bed to read…). Breakfast was good.

We spent 2 nights in late October and are still talking about the stay. Our room was well appointed, unfortunately sound proof to the next room was virtually non existent. We conveyed it to the front desk and can only hope that management will find a solution to it., and our room was on the side of the public parking....

This is a lovely boutique hotel in a former colonial residence a short distance from the main square. It has 11 rooms and 3 garden suites. I loved my spacious garden suite, #303 with large king bed, sitting area and lovely bath. The lobby is formal and elegant with lovely antiques and the Casa Alonso restaurant is very attractive with...

A boutique hotel set in an old colonial era house. Everything is beautiful and wonderfully set out. You get a hot water bottle in bed every night. The showers are so powerful you practically end up being blown into the room below. They have hummingbirds in the garden :D It loses a mark for being ludicrously expensive (compared to other...

I stayed here for four days with one of my grandsons after a spectacular nature tour in the Galapagos. I thought a few days seeing the culture of Ecuador would be good for him. It was GREAT. First impressions of the hotel were spectacular. Great public areas very reminiscent of Spain, Libya, Egypt and other north african spots. The staff...

Your first impression of Maison Alcazar is that of an old European style hacienda in this quaint town. Upon walking into the hotel you are surrounded by the incredible scent of lavender and lemon. The interior is beautiful and old world in its design. The sitting area inside is quite large with an abundance of seating with a nice fountain...

Cuenca is a lovely city and this hotel is a wonderful place to stay. Rooms are available in the garden as well as in the main hotel. We had a marvelous lunch here and breakfasts were very good, too, with eggs prepared to your request. The front door is kept locked and you must press the doorbell so that someone...

This small, but very elegant hotel is perfectly located in the heart of colonial Cuenca near the cathedral. Staff was very friendly, room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast options could be better. I had some issues at check out, but nothing that cannot be resolved. I recommend!!!
