    Hotel is in a good location for shops and local restaurants, use local bus number 1 or 2 in street behind hotel to take you up to the old town to the castle walls, las casas colgadas , and the parador and of course the cathedral , Then walk down from the top to the new town. Bus fare 1.30 euro.

    Convenient location. Ample sized room. Good breakfast with a great view of the old city.

    Rather plain ambience

  • Couple

    Good location in the new part of town. Room was very big and there was air-conditioning.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Centrally located in town and opposite the park. Also has a restaurant with a panoramic view of Cuenca. A clean and comfortable stay. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable. Would recommend to people visiting the area.

    The first room my parents were given smelt badly of a blocked drain (a sulphurous smell), but the hotel immediately offered them another room when we mentioned this and there were no further concerns. A good experience overall.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Staff were able to speak adequate English to help us in our stay. The room was comfortable, good view and very clean.

    The mirror was heated. Not sure why this was but it made the bathroom very hot which is not what you want on a hot summer's day.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Central location and access to city and local area.

    Entrance and outside presentation was scruffy

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The Top Floor Restaurant had great views of the city. The 8 Euro breakfast was good. Even though a coach party had arrived at the hotel the staff seemed to cope well with all of these guests. The room was comfortable and secure.

    There was no view from the windows of our room only onto a closed courtyard.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Location, parking facilities, rooftop bar.
