    The hotel is too noisy from the street as well as from the inside of the hotel itself. Imposible to rest or sleep on nigth.

    Staff was EXTRAORDINARY helpful and willing to please. Can't wait to go back when the restaurant is up and fully running.

    The decor was very good & tastefully done. Reception & service staff provided excellent, prompt and friendly service, with good support in English. Dinner & breakfast were excellent. Close location to the Centro was real value for money. I have recommended Los Balcones to my associates here at San Carlos sugar mill.

    This was the best hotel we stayed in in Ecuador (although also the most expensive). The location is fine, near the centre but not so close that it's noisy at night. The room was big and clean, the shower excellent, and the staff very pleasant.

    It's a 10/15 minute walk from the main nightlife/restaurants and the streets are pretty quiet at night...worth taking a taxi back late in the evening.

    The guys at the desk were great and went out of the way to be helpful. The folks at the adjacent restuarant(california kitchen) were helpful also. iNTERACTION WITH OTHER GUEST WAS ENCOURAGED AND THAT WAS ALSO HELPFUL.

    Did not have a business center.

    Wonderful hotel! Friendly and attentive staff, great amenities, fantastic location, reasonably priced and very clean!! Highly recommended!! Would definitely book another stay at Hotel Boutique Los Balcones!!

    The staff were very helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable, a lot of effort put into design. The Calrfornia Restaurant, on site, was wonderful. I would stay another week just to dine there, The location was perfect, we walked to the central plaza and church several times a day just to people watch and relax. Endless hot water!

    Noisy. Money would have been better spent on proper windows that blocked some of the street nois than on the spa sowers. This is not a huge complaint, wonderful hotel.

    Great little hotel with charm, character and attention to detail. Incredibly efficient staff who truly cared about guest comfort and satisfaction. Felt more like staying with friends than in a hotel. Would definitely recommend Los Balcones to other travelers headed to Cuenca.

    The hotel was awesome. It was near the Catherdral and shopping. The rooms were very well decorated, comforatable and clean. My balony opened on to the street and I loved to people watch! The shower was awesome. The staff were great and the ride to the airport was very convenient.

    A wonderful surprise in the heart of the historic district in Cuenca. A beautifully restored and decorated Spanish Colonial home converted into a boutique hotel, with western style amenities and old world charm. We stayed in four hotels during our trip to Ecuador and this was our favorite. The staff were warm and friendly. They made us feel like cherished guests in their home! I was craving hot chocolate and the staff made a special trip to get the ingredients to make me a yummy cup of Ecuadorian cocoa. Where else can you get that kind of service? We would definitely stay there again.

    Although we had no issues, we don't recommend this hotel for anyone that can't climb stairs.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is charming and has been beautifully renovated. However, it was the hotel's personnel that made our stay so memorable. Especially Paulo, who couldn't seem to do enough for us. We will always remember our stay at Los Balcones, and hope to return to Cuenca soon.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Our stay at Hotel Boutique Los Balcones was the most pleasant experience during our stay in Cuenca. We traveled with our two children and found the hotel very accommodating as we stayed in the two room suite. The staff was very friendly and helpful - they also spoke decent English. Breakfast which is included in everyone's stay was more than your typical bland assortment of continental breakfast offerings found in other hotels. We are vegetarians and found the cooking staff very agreeable and accommodating to our diet needs. California Kitchen, which is owned by an American, is open generally Wednesday through Sunday, is one of the better restaurants in town. In addition to the full bar and menu options, the convenience of this restaurant being located right in the hotel was a definite plus for us. The Hotel is located right in the center of town and is a short walking distance or cab ride to most major destinations. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Cuenca.

    Be careful of the fully stocked refrigerator and the bottled water that is delivered to your room everyday - You will be overly charged for all that you consume i.e. $3/bottle. There is available water that you can drink from a water cooler on each floor that is completely free.

    The staff were exceptional. They went above and beyond to meet our needs. By the end of the second week, we were so pleased that we extended our stay until 01/27/2012.

    Traffic noise and a rooster were a problem at first: however, after a day or two we no longer noticed it.
