Set within the Southern Sierra region of Ecuador, Cuenca is an attractive and historical city. This is a midsize city, but with its cobblestone streets, slow pace and historic atmosphere, it feels much smaller. Cuenca hosts several Spanish language schools, as well as seven universities. Travelers will enjoy exploring the religious and colonial architecture of the city, best evidenced by the great number of churches and convents. Museums abound here too, and offer travelers ample opportunities to learn about Ecuadorian culture and customs.
Hotel Boutique Los Balcones is centrally located in Cuenca. The hotel is near Parque Calderón and is set within a house where the famed artist Gaspar de Sangurima once lived. The house’s historic nature can be seen in the wooden balconies and tall ceilings. The staff here is incredibly friendly and helpful.
Hotel Boutique Los Balcones has just 11 rooms, which give it an intimate feel. The rooms are well appointed, attractive, and clean. Private bathrooms have hot water showers with good pressure. The rooms also have heating, which is much appreciated during the cooler months, as well as soundproof windows that make it easy to get a good night’s sleep. Wi-Fi access is available, and there’s a cable TV for those times when you just want to kick your feet up and watch something. A digital safety deposit box is provided, and some rooms even have balconies that overlook the streets of Cuenca. In addition to these amenities, the hotel’s apartments have multiple bedrooms, a kitchen, and living area.
The hotel’s restaurant, Sole Mio, is set within the central courtyard. It combines traditional Ecuadorian food with Italian cuisine, providing guests with a rich assortment of flavors to choose from. Each morning guests are treated to a breakfast buffet on the top-floor terrace—the setting is pleasant and the food is tasty. In the evenings, grab a drink from the small bar and cuddle up on one of the many cozy sofas.
