This hotel is ideally located for visitors who prefer to walk to their sightseeing destinations. Hotel Cuenca sits just two blocks from Parque Calderón, the epicenter of Cuenca’s culture. On either side of the park, you’ll spot Cuenca’s main attractions, the Old Cathedral and the New Cathedral. The Spanish built the Old Cathedral in the 16th century. It transformed into a museum for religious art once the New Cathedral opened in the 19th century. The New Cathedral has an awe-inspiring façade and its towers are famous for their bright blue domes. Walk down the street from the Old Cathedral to Iglesia del Carmén de la Asunción. Directly across the street you’ll find El Mercado de Flores, an open-air market bursting with local blooms, many varieties of which you won’t see at home.
Stepping into Hotel Cuenca, you’ll be greeted with old-fashioned hospitality and a welcome cocktail. Hallways wrap around the hotel’s central plaza, and elegant chandeliers hang from the high ceilings. Soft lighting and soft colors make the colorful paintings and decorative plants pop. The aesthetic at this hotel reflects the Old World influences of the Spanish.
