We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our 10 day trip to Ecuador. This was the perfect place for us in Cuenca. The Spanish colonial home has been converted into a beautiful and charming boutique hotel with attention to detail. The rooms are rather large compared to other places we stayed in Ecuador and the bed was...

Beautiful place, excellent location. Family of 4 had 2 rooms 3 days to explore Cuenca from. Was really wonderful to come back and relax after outings and start the day with great breakfast. No problem booking the rooms. Thanks!

Casa Ordonez is literally that; the beautifully converted, home of the Ordonez family. Built in the Spanish style, around a central courtyard, where an excellent breakfast is served daily as part of the inclusive and reasonable rate. The rooms are named after family members; we stayed in Julia, a simple, well appointed room with a gorgeous, original painted high ceiling....

Alberto and his team have created an oasis in the middle of the City! We refer our guests here so they can have a small and intimate stay while being in the City Centre. Breakfast/brunch is totally lovely and well presented. This hotel is small, reasonable prices and spotless. With fabulous people, what more could we ask for!

Alberto Ordonez is the owner/operator/chef here. The love and pride he has for his family home and history is touching. He and his family have carefully restored this beautiful historic home into a wonderful boutique hotel. The place is full of treasures and stories. The accommodations are beautiful, clean and comfortable. Alberto invites you to make it your home while...

I have never reviewed on TripAdvisor before but this hotel warrants the effort! We stayed at Casa Ordonez for 2 nights and cannot recommend it highly enough. This beautiful old Casa with its internal courtyard has been in the Ordonez family for generations and had been meticulously maintained. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast outstanding but what really made...

We stayed at Casa Ordonez for 5 days, and I can say it was a treat. The hotel is beautiful, meticulously maintained, with exceptional service. Alberto and Inez are lovely and extremely helpful, knowledgable, and the breakfast and overall service was superb. Would absolutely recommend to any gringo staying in Cuenca!!

What can I say that hasn't been said in the other reviews? Alberto Ordonez has taken the old family home and converted into a classic boutique hotel at a fraction of what you would expect to pay in other latin american hot-spots like San Miguel de Allende or San Jose. The restoration impeccably maintains the hardwood floors and doors, right...

From the moment we walked through the door Alberto greeted us like long lost friends. This is his old family home and it is an historic building so there is some quirkiness, like the huge old room keys. However we had a most comfortable stay. Alberto showed us two rooms to choose from which was helpful. There was a lounge...

This boutique hotel is right in the middle of the historic district and is within easy walking distance to almost everything. We had a wonderful stay and the owner of the hotel and his sister made us feel like part of the family. The building a beautiful family home and is taken care with much pride. The staff is exceptional...

“Ask for a room at the back of the Hotel - these are often quieter.”

“Around the courtyard on the upper level. Rooms facing street are fairly quiet as the city shuts down pretty quick after 7 or so.”
