      I would rate this Hotel as poor. We arrived after 3pm. The incredibly grumpy unprofessional and scruffy older man behind the rather unkempt reception desk informed us only one of our two rooms were ready (check in time is 2pm). When asked how long we would need to wait. He responded that he didnt know!! The rooms, when we got them were small and worn. Plenty of mould on the grout in the bathroom. The ac unit in one of the rooms did not work. Both rooms chairs were rickety. The location was good. The shower powerful, though you did need to be a contortionist to actually get past the toilet and shower screen. Breakfast was pretty horrid. The hot options and cold. The coffee machine was slow though produced passable coffee. I would recommend going elsewhere. Checkout was with the same grumpy fellow. In summary this is a 2 star level hotel with poor service and quality levels at that. There is nothing boutique about it.

      I stayed in Cuenca for the 1st time, 5 years ago & I was so excited to return. We payed a lot more for this hotel & based on pictures etc we couldnt wait. The lady at the desk was wonderful but the hotel is woeful. Depressing room - windows in the roof so you cant see any of the wonderful views, decor that is really tired & the whole hotel is stripped of any original features- such a let down. In the bedroom if you turned the bathroom lights on, all the other lights went off & vice-Versa!! I guess Cuenca demands a certain price due to its tourist activity. Come on hotels - do your job. Make sure people want to come back. Over deliver instead of making us sad!! Maybe Im overdoing it slightly here but Ive stayed in wonderful Airbnbs that deliver all the time for a quarter of the price.

      We had room 308 which had a large 4 poster bed in a large zize bedroom and bathroom. Shower over the bath. Fridge in room but no kettle or tea/coffee facilities. A view out over to the Jesus statue on the hill. Great location. Only a minutes walk from the Plaza Mayor. If you arrive at the bus station it costs 1.20 taking the line 1 bus to Plaza Mayor. If arriving or leaving via Fernando Zoble train station the same line 1 bus costs 2.15 picking up/dropping off at Plaza Mayor. On arrival we werent actually given any information at reception, simply given the key and asked for our passports. We did later ask for a map and the lady on reception this time was much more forthcoming. The noise does travel from other rooms easily.. so please respect your fellow guests. The bathroom products weren't particularly the best. The shower gel didn't lather. Also only shampoo and shower gel provided. The room was clean and there's plenty of storage space. The aircon was adequate. Cuenca itself is stunning. The views from the numerous miradors are beautiful. The town is very quiet generally (at the moment...) we were there Wednesday through to Saturday morning. It's especially quiet in the mornings before 10am. If you don't have breakfast at the hotel your breakfast options are quite limited before 10am. We found a nice deal at Picaro 3.90 for coffee, fresh OJ, either a tostada or croissant. It has a beautiful view of the cathedral and is peaceful. But only opens at 10am. The walks by the river are lovely. Barrio San Anton is a quirky little area with tiny streets and lots of graffiti art work. For a great platter of cheeses and iberico meats I recommend Los Tilos which sits on a terrace overlooking the gorge. Be prepared for lots of steps or slopes. We did notice a little tourist train if you should need it. There's lots of walking trails you can follow all clearly marked out. We climbed up to the Jesus statue on the Cerro Socorro hill crossing over the bridge on the way. It's a nice walk takes about 60 mins from the hotel. Gives nice views over the city plus taking in the bridge and hanging houses. Not sure if it's the same every week but entrance to the hanging houses to see the artwork was free on Friday. Very contemporary art work in here. The Mirador by Castillo is lovely to visit for sunset. There's a little kiosk nearby should you want to enjoy the view with a drink. Overall Cuenca was one of those places that is full of little streets, churches and plazas. Fantastic view points. The odd 'tourist' shop but by no means a touristy place at the moment which is great. Certainly suggest staying here rather than doing a day trip so you can enjoy the sunset views and early morning. The walk by the castle was beautiful around 8.30am where all the birds were feeding and flying into the gorge. Hotel wise good value mid week 60 a night but a bit steep to be paying 90 for the same room on a Friday night.

      We were visiting the monastery there, and stopped for lunch at the quaint restaurant, which was attached to the hotel. The lunch special was 5 courses for as little as 13 Euros. Food was basic but delicious..the service was friendly! There is indoor and outdoor seating....and a bar.

      Had an excellent lunch here while visiting Cuenca. The daily special was well priced at 12 euros 50 with a wide choice of dishes. Everything we had was excellent; well-presented and delicious. The courtyard was a fine place to eat with a nice breeze although no views. Definitely recommended.
