Santa Lucia Hotel was built in 1859 as the family house of the provincial governor. It has been fully renovated over the last few years and retains its original features and charms now enhanced with modern amenities for its guests. All rooms are well equipped with TV, safe, minibar, hairdryer, internet access and en-suite bathroom.
Reception rooms are well proportioned with high ceilings and are furnished in traditional style and comfortable chairs and sofas, where guests can relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. The hotel has a choice of restaurants. The Trattoria Novecento is based in the main courtyard, an elegant area, floodlit at night, making a perfect place for your evening meal. Italian dishes are the speciality here, served with a wide selection of wines. The cosy Bacus Cafe serves local specialities and each morning a delicious buffet breakfast is served here. Bar Moshi Moshi is a great place where guests can relax, sitting in the comfortable tub chairs and enjoying the friendly ambience. Cocktails, wines and spirits are served along with a range of tasty snacks.
The hotel is located just 50 metres from the central plaza in the Old Town district of Cuenca, making it an ideal location from which to explore the historic centre, widely thought to be one of Ecuador's most attractive cities.
A superb combination of the magnificent scenery of the southern Highlands and the wildlife of the Galapagos.
"Lovely breakfast, but the staff very surly and it was very, very noisy. The double bed was far too short and narrow. Shame, because the hotel interior itself was lovely and quaint."
