Great location and pretilly and cosily situated after an extremely attractive short drive up the 'canyon' from Cuenca. On this road, just on leaving the town is the cul de sac leading to the local 'Parador', the optimal position for viewing & viisiting the 'Casas colgadas' & the old town. Meanwhile back at the hotel, the rooms are adequate, the...

Very scenic hotel which was a convent, in a beautiful location about 7 k out of Cuenca. It has a lovely atmospheric courtyard, and an appealing lounge area with big lounges. Both would be lovely places to have a drink, if you could locate some serving staff. Parking was free. We had a double room, quiet spacious and nicely furnished....

It's an attractive old hotel, with a nice dining courtyard. But it could be a lot better than it is and it's very over-priced for what you get - poor value. The room was small and with no air conditioning was uncomfortable in the heat. The reception could be a lot more friendly and helpful, but that doesn't seem to...

The good things were the lovely location, just outside Cuenca, quiet and peaceful, with attractive courtyard for a drink. The swimming pool was closed as out of season, but would be large and a great place to sunbathe around. Room was clean and comfy, so it was fine for an overnight stay, taking in Cuence on route. The bad things...

We stayed for only one night and the days were rainy, not allowing to use outdoor facilities, like swiming pool or tennis courts. Nevertheless the rooms are very big and well recovered, perfect if you have two teenagers and want some privacy. Wonderful ambiance. It's a good place to stay if you want to visit not only historical Cuenca but...

After a spectacular drive to the hotel we were looking forward to somethig special.From the outside the hotel looks very nice however we were rather disappointed. We were greeted at reception by a rather offhand man who obviously wanted to be doing something else. We found our room which was Ok apart from the hole in the bathroom wall ....

Nice outdoor patio, room basic but pleasant, location a short drive from old city. Found room/hotel a little musty, which is a problem for me.

Cueva Del Fraile is located on the Buenache Rd outside Cuenca after the most spectacular drive. It is a suberb location and building which could, with a bit more thought about the lighting and other guest facilities could be absolutely magnificent! It is great value for money and the staff are friendly and helpful but you will need at least...
