Hotel Apartamentos Otorongo is a great place to stay

  • for families,
  • travelers who like living locally vs in a hotel
  • people considering a longer term stay in Cuenca
  • Wiser (that is older) travelers

We are staying in a 1 bedroom for a week at a cost of $290.  Now for those of you gasping in delight at the low rate….remember this is Ecuador. This is more than the majority of Cuencanos pay for monthly rent! (Rents and living will be discussed in a separate post).  It is also more expensive than some of the great hostels in town which are $7-$10 a night (per person).

That said, this is the perfect location and accommodation for us.  I really prefer to cook my own food when I travel so I wanted a kitchen, the landscaping makes me feel like I actually live here, and the other residents are interesting.  We are within walking distance of everything, we are on a bus line and taxis are always nearby.

The staff is friendly and helpful.  Javier Montezuma, the site manager, is a fluent English speaker and he and his staff are available to answer questions and make suggestions.  To make a reservation, you will need to call or email and pay by Western Union or Paypal.
