Grand, well-appointed hotel with spacious rooms and suites and a sumptuous decorative style recalling 19th century France.

This grand, well-appointed Hotel Carvello occupies a restored house right in the heart of historic Cuenca. While meeting modern standards of luxury, the opulent décor of its rooms and suites recalls 19th century France. Characteristic features of the interior design include elegantly draped linens, elaborate ceiling designs and polished wood furniture, while paintings and antiques make each room feel unique.

Some have wonderful views over the city, others over the striking internal courtyard which is impressively bedecked with reams of white cotton tapering down into spirals around the wooden columns. Only breakfast is served, but the hotel is paired with a restaurant across the street and there are plenty of other nearby dining options to choose from.

Our Expert's Opinion

The hotel really showcases the grandeur of Cuenca, the imposing building is right in the centre of the city an ideal location to explore the colonial streets. I loved the faded glory of this building and how the hotel itself pays homage to the 19th century roots with it’s classical chandeliers and works of art.
