Overall: We'll certainly stay in Dano's apartment next trip!
Location: Very handy! Across the river from the steps up to El Centro. This postcard photo was taken from in front of apartment building. Check this cute video; the cream-colored building in the background during the interview at about 2:00 is the front of the apartment building: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4a9Whxs-N3M
apartment: Quiet; far back from avenida 12 de abril, so little traffic noise or bus fumes. In a charming old building with locked gate entrance & two interior courtyards, one with a beautiful garden. Apartment is fresh and new, with solid furniture, grounded 3-hole electric outlets, and many conveniences: TV, sound system, all kitchen appliances, comfortable bed, thick towels, washer & dryer on porch. Before arriving, we mentioned to Dano that we like to dry clothes outside; sure enough, when we got there he'd put up a nice clothesline for us! One bedroom is set up as an office with WiFi and a big-screen computer we used. Overall, nicer than we expected even though we'd see photos.
Thoughtfulness: Dano was a wonderful host and very strong on extra services. He picked us up at the airport, showed us around town a little, and left a nice plate of pastries on the table for us, plus beer in the fridge. He gladly and competently answered many questions by e-mail before we arrived. A thoughtfully-prepared and illustrated 26-page notebook was a big help in knowing how the apartment works, where to shop, and so forth.
Ideally located for both the historic city and modern shopping c
Dan, the owner, met us at the airport and gave us a good idea as to what to expect in Cuenca and also a very good orientation. Dan had also put together a folder of great information in the apartment with everything we needed to know.
The apartment was fully equipped with everything the two of us needed during our stay and we found it a comfortable size for two people.
Over the road from the apartment building is the old city which we never got tired of walking around and a short walk behind the apartment there are shops and supermarkets where we could find everything we needed.
All in all a good value in a very nice historic city which we would certainly return to.
A great place to stay in Cuenca
This apartment is everything as advertised and more. For the money the location doesn't get better than this. There is plenty of room for two people. It has one of the best equipped kitchens for a rental that we've seen. Washer/dryer right on the premises with detergent supplied. Wifi has a strong signal. Security seemed good and noise level is minimal as the apartment is towards the rear of the building. Major supermarket is a 10 minute walk or short cab ride away. The Old Town is right out the front door, up the stairs. Plenty of taxis/buses easily available.
Dan is a thoughtful, gracious host. His "Cuenca Guide" is a great reference tool that has lots of useful info. We've rented a number of apartments in South america, Mexico and Europe. This is one of the better deals we've had. You won't go wrong. The only caveat I would give is that the apartment is on the 3rd floor (walk up). If you are adverse to stairs, this may be a problem.
Great place and Dano was very helpful and friendly.
Very quiet, which is hard to find in Cuenca! Convenient to El Centro, just across the RÃo Tomebamba and up the stairs to Calle Larga.
All the comforts of home. Great place to stay.
One thing, you'll be climbing lots of stairs to the apartment and to get to El Centro. Something to consider, if that's a problem.
great place, dan was a very nice guy, picked me up at the bus station to give me the keys and showed me to the apartment, very nice place to stay, all the comforts of home, great hot water, fast internet, tv, dvd, stereo, like i said all the comforts of home.
very close to all the sights, within walking distance to central, would reccomend to anyone wanting a safe, clean, nice place to stay in cuenca
Perfect location in a fantastic apartment!
Loved my time in this apartment! It's location is ideal - across from the Rio Tomebamba and just below Centro Historico. The apartment is clean, modern and has everything you could possibly need to be comfortable, and then some. The building is a great mix of locals and expats who are all good neighbors. It's incredibly safe and quiet. Oh, and did I mention the incredible view of the andes out the kitchen and office window? If I return to Cuenca again in the future, I'll definitely be staying here!
