|La Casona del Centro|
The concept of extended stay hotels has come to Cuenca. The newly-renovated La Casona del Centro (La Casona) has just opened its doors. Extended stay hotels, designed with the guest in mind, are the perfect short-term housing solution whether you are traveling for business, looking for temporary housing during relocation, or even a weekend getaway. Our experience in Cuenca shows that many people, after an initial "look-see" trip, have decided to come back for a longer stay for the purpose of evaluating Cuenca as a future home.
La Casona specializes in providing functional hotel suites at affordable extended stay rates. It is specifically designed for business and leisure travelers who want more than just a hotel room. The suites meet all of the requirements that a traveler would require.

We've just had the opportunity to tour La Casona. It is located on Luis Cordero 10-13 y Gran Colombia, and is a beautiful hotel inside and out, with 15 luxury suites for extended stay travelers. No pets are allowed.

The hotel is perfectly situated with the traveler in mind, having a delicatessen inside which is open from 7am to 7pm every day, that provides excellent baked goods and coffee. Also as part of the building there is a pharmacy, a travel agency, a copy/photo center, and a handcraft gallery. Within a few blocks, there are banks, restaurants, markets, a post office, and Parque Calderon (the central park).
