So you have chosen to visit Cuenca. Below you will find 20 Hotels and Hosterias in Cuenca. Many of these Hotels are in refurbished colonial houses. The atmosphere is quite unique. Don’t expect to find an elevator in many of the older buildings. Hotels like Crespo, Victoria and Oro Verde have elevators and you will notice the price difference.
Although the hotels with elevators are very nice they are also on the more expensive side compared with other accommodation in Cuenca. There is something to suit every budget and you can find accommodation can range in price from $12 per night per person to $27 upwards for a couple.
Also don’t expect to find coffee/tea making facilities in many of the boutique style hotels. But don’t worry there are restaurants everywhere and I am sure you will soon find your way around town and a favorite place to have that cup of tea or coffee.
