Mansion Alcazar

Positioned in central Cuenca, a vibrant UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity town, Mansion Alcazar is a boutique hotel set within an historic 19th century colonial building. Within ambling distance of architectural marvels, churches and art galleries, the property evokes old-world charm and elegant modernity all at once.

Its 19 cosy rooms and suites are tastefully decorated with fine antiques, traditional touches and hanging artwork, all overlooking either a quiet interior courtyard or colourful external gardens. Gourmet cuisine is served at the in-house restaurant and there is also a delightful lounge and chandelier bar.

Why we like Mansion Alcazar

In the middle of a vivacious colonial Cuenca, Mansion Alcazar’s bountiful gardens overflow with hummingbirds and colourful orchids. Accompanied by the gentle trickle of an overflowing water foundation, guests can pick a book from the lounge library and take refuge from city exploration amongst the flowers.


Within the city itself, visit the cathedral, shop for handicrafts or plot a course to the Mirador de Turi for a breath-taking panorama. Further afield, we can arrange a day trip to El Cajas National Park and its 232 lagoons.
