I stayed here for several days. The best thing about this place is that at night all you hear is the river. No street noise, no loud bars and no partying...just the soothing sounds of the Tomebamba river. The establishment is kept under lock and key. If you plan on staying out a little late, the owner will let you...

We are simple and have no claims,but I was never in a bad room like this. First of all, we had a reservation, but the hotel manager forget us completely! He can not speak English. Then we saw 3 rooms for chose one, but in every room something was broken. The kitchen smelled very bad and not clean. There are...

I recently traveled to Cuenca with a group who was looking to save $$ on lodging. For just $10 apiece per night, we stayed at the Hostal Casa del Rio, and I was very impressed - it was clean and quiet yet in a very central location, and the owners were quite helpful and accommodating.

I didn't see any other hotels in the city, but I did overhear one couple come in and see the place as they weren't happy with their current accommodation. If you need a quiet room...

When we looked at the hotel we were shown the best room with river views and thought it would cost $20. That was a misunderstanding that we fortunately realized when we signed in. The room isn't worth the $30 they charge. Since it was late we decided to take one of the cheaper rooms for $20, which isn't really worth...

“Ask for a private bath! River view on the second floor contains the sound. If you have never visited Cuenca, the noise and bus exhaust is very challenging.”

“It's a confined 4-story building. If you don't like stairs, get a room near the lobby.”
