El loft de Manolo nos gustó tanto que terminamos por alargar nuestra estadía dos veces.
El lugar es súper cómodo y tiene todo lo necesario para sentirse en casa: ducha caliente, cocina, refrigerador, cama calientita, etc. Es tranquilo, acogedor y con un diseño muy práctico.
Manolo es una persona muy interesante y amigable. Desde la noche que llegamos nos abrió las puertas de su hogar y supimos que era un nuevo amigo :) Al quedarnos en su casa pudimos aprender de él y su mundo de arte, diseño y letras.
La ubicación del loft es excelente, solo hay que cruzar la calle para estar en los pasillos coloridos del mercado (y tomar una taza del mejor chocolate caliente!). Las iglesias, museos, restaurantes, etc; quedan solamente a un par de cuadras. El río pasa juntito a la casa de Manolo y es bien bonito para caminar por las tardes.
Si regresamos a Cuenca no hay duda que volveríamos a quedarnos ahí.
Manolo was a wonderful host. He met us when we arrived and showed us everything we needed and was so friendly. The apartment itself was awesome - small but perfect. It was great having space to cook and not need to eat out every night. The bed was very comfy with plenty of blankets, the shower was powerful and hot and the WiFi worked really well. And it was in a great location. We wish we could have stayed longer, we loved it.
We had the most wonderful time in Cuenca! This was the perfect location being right on Calle Larga. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and felt very welcomed by Manolo. We also loved his friendly kitty, Lupo! Thank you for an amazing time!
I had a great time in Cuenca and Monolo's place made it even more special. A perfect fit for me. The space although small is designed well and not shown in the photos he has a iron railing available to use to negotiate the tight staircase. I loved being right in town yet far enough away from the street noise. Gracias pro todo Manolo. Espero volver pronto!
We had one of our best stays in South America!
The flat was as described and really really well designed and so it doesn't really matter that it's small :-)
Manolo is beyond the best hosts ever!!
Just be aware that the stair up to the bed is a bit steep... But really no problem if you are not handicaped.
The location of the flat is the best you could get. Access from the main road and still totally no noise as it is in a laid back yard!!
All in All we would absolutely love to come back at some point!!
Wunderbar war es in Manolos kleinem Häuschen. Was er, der gleich gegenüber wohnt, hier geschaffen hat ist ein richtiges Paradieschen inmitten des Zentrums von Cuenca. Ein inspirierender Ort mit einem inspirierender Gastgeber.
Great space, just as described. Located on one of the main streets for bars and restaurants, but set way back so felt like a little oasis. Also a big market is just around the corner, so easy to buy food. Manolo was always available for questions.
