Note: Please feel free to send us a message with any questions you may have about the apartment and to confirm availability. You can do a quick web search for Alternatur Cuenca, a travel service provider we are starting here that will offer visitors to the city a wide range of services that include accommodations, transportation and personalized travel itineraries..

We have a spacious and comfortable 3 bedroom apartment that is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just 15 minutes away by bus from the Historical city center. It is within walking distance of the Monay Shopping Mall, with easy access to pharmacies, local eateries, bakeries and small shops. The apartment comes completely furnished, equipped with a washer and dryer, Cable TV, Wi Fi internet, central gas and 2 private bathrooms with hot water. Guests are welcome to make use of a fully equipped kitchen that contains all the basic essentials, such as a microwave, blender, and cookware.

The building itself is very quiet and is located in a safe residential neighborhood, with access to 3 bus lines that stop just a few feet from the main entrance.

We also provide a complimentary 3 hour walking tour of the city to all guests visiting Cuenca for the first time. It covers the historical center and all its main attractions, and will help guests navigate the local bus system. Currently, we are in the process of establishing a travel service provider that helps develop customized travel itineraries for anyone visiting the city, as well as offer accommodations and transportation. You can do a search for Alternatur Cuenca on the web to find out more about our services.

The apartment is sure to provide a comfortable stay for all guests visiting the beautiful and charming city of Cuenca.

Service Update: Beginning November 2013, we will provide guests with full access to a vehicle that will be used to visit various locations that are in close proximity to the city and within a reasonable radius of the apartment, such as Turi, Baños, Mall del Rio and nearby neighborhoods. This service will be offered to guests as an optional amenity, and we are still in the process of developing the pricing chart and travel restrictions. We are also developing walking tours that will highlight the events that are being scheduled for the upcoming Biennial in Cuenca, which takes place in the month of November. Feel free to send us any questions, and we will respond promptly to your inquiries.

House Rules

Guests are expected to take care of the space as if it were their own. The idea is to allow all visitors to feel at home during their stay, while taking advantage of the wonderful sites and attractions that the city of Cuenca offers.

Only the guests will be allowed access to the apartment. Noise levels must be kept to a minimum due to the building rules.
