Ideally located in the centre of the charming historic Old Town, this 19th century house is one of the most characterful hotels in Cuenca. With a relaxed yet refined atmosphere, the hotel provides a wonderful base from which to explore the sights. Santa Lucia is just 200 yards from San Alfonso and Immaculate Conception Cathedrals and a short walk from Parque Calderon, so the surrounding pretty streets are easily explored by foot. Elegant rooms are styled with a Baroque influence, and are well appointed with all mod-cons you may expect, including room service. It is certainly worth eating here during your stay, as Santa Lucia is owned by three generations of the Vintimilla family, who are especially renowned for their gastronomy. The family own the Villarosa restaurant, which is one of the most acclaimed in Ecuador.
