Other Things to Note
The most beautiful place in Cuenca's El Barranco, and there's my house suite at the disposal of the travelers.
I hope a friendly, courteous, respectful of local culture.
Manolo was a great host and the apartment is super cool and even better than advertised. It is basically a private apartment that shares a courtyard with the main house. He was waiting outside for us on arrival, very sweet. The bed is comfy, with lots of warm blankets. The whole place is very cool! Great location as well.
El studio está muy bonito, tiene todo lo que necesita (Internet, Agua caliente, material de cocina, etc.) y la indepencía que va con el. Puede ir y regresar cuando lo quiere.
Todo está cerca : está a 5 minutos caminando del centro, hay un supermercado y el mercado a 1 minuto.
Manolo está disponible si necesario y muy simpático, y Lupo (el gatito) está muy mono.
It really is a lovely studio and perfect for a holiday in Cuenca. The studio is spacious enough for two people with a well equipped kitchen and seating area. The water in the shower was hot. It is located in the centre but is in a quiet courtyard which is very pleasant. There is also a little patio area outside the studio. We really enjoyed our stay.
A really exceptional place to stay in Cuenca. The location is on a busy and lively street but the studio is really quiet and peaceful. Manolo is an architect and it really shows in the clever use of space which was really comfortable for the two of us. We had everything we needed and really felt like we had a home in Cuenca. Wonderful shower with reliable hot water; good wifi; comfortable bed. Note that the sleeping part of the loft is up 5 very steep little stairs so not a good choice if you are not totally mobile!
All in all
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.
