Had booked 2 nights here but booked out after first night, rooms tired and grubby and restaurant in need of a serious make over In a good part of town near shops and restaurants but the atmosphere in the hotel and attitude of the staff left a lot to be desired

The Hotel Alfonso VIII de Cuenca is well positioned, but parking is difficult. You need to walk (carrying bags) and free parking is impossible. The room was large enough, the bed was comfortable and the wi-fi worked well. The room was also fairly clean, although there were cigarette burns on the bed cover and was quite cold, the toilet paper... More

While the walk to the hotel isn't the prettiest, and you have to park 2 blocks away. Inside the hotel and apartment have a lot to offer. The hotel itself was very clean and the bed, linens and towels were comfy and soft. The 2 bedroom apt was huge and could have accommodated at least 6 people probably more like... More

Decent clean hotel with nice staff and a nice hotel reaturant with lovely views. The location is excellent in the bottom of the new city. It's better than being right up the top because it's a nightmare getting up and down from there, much easier just to walk or catch the bus up. Would definitely stay here again.

Located in the new town, my room had a great view of the old city, across from a pleasant park and near to many good restaurants. From the registration desk, there were steps leading up to the elevator, but the clerk kindly helped carry my bags for me. I was sorry to have stayed only one night in my comfortable... More

Very nice hotel, nice personal at the desk. Very nice views from the restaurant. A pitty that they dont have a bar at the restaurant but there are enough restaurant and bars in nearby. Very nice town and well worth visiting.

The staff at Alphonso V111 are lovely and very helpful and the panoramic restaurant is great with very good food, but, the interior of the hotel has nil character. The foyer has no seats and is in the stairwell, the rooms are clean with minibar but feel lifeless. I stress this is only my thoughts as the staff were brilliant... More

When we first saw this hotel it did not look very enticing from the outside. However it was so much better inside. It was clean, comfortable and everything we could want for an overnight stay. It was not the most modern or glamorous that we stayed in but we had no complaints with the amenity. The town was very interesting... More

This hotel is beside the wonderful old town of Cuenca and very close to several excellent restaurants and bars. My room (506) was comfortable, quiet, and clean. The breakfast was OK apart from very poor coffee, but the view from the top-floor restaurant over the old town is stunning. There are a few things that spoilt my stay. There is... More
