Family oriented
Good choice for family with kids outside Cuenca (large playground, soccer field, garden, horseback ridding for kids, thermal spas near by) .Very hard to find! Located outside of Banos! Room was older and bathroom outdated. $$ a bit higher for area. Family run business with very friendly english speaking staff.

The best of Ecuador
I have spent the past nine months traveling and living throughout Ecuador. I can say Hosteria Campana Caballo is the premiere destination for anyone coming to Ecuador who appreciates fine food, great accommodations, unbelievable scenery, and serenity.

not too far
this is a very nice place that makes you feel like you are In the country but you are actually only $5.00 taxi ride from the center of Cuenca. I liked the feel of the place. Not too busy and nice rooms.

2/10 Poor

This is first review of a hotel on, I travel ixtensively around the world, have stayed at hundreads of Hotels. My driver (long time friend)picked up me in Guayaquil, Ecuador we made the 3 hour drive to Cuenca, about a mile out of town we got off on a dirt road and went about 2 miles in the middle of nowhere.We arrived at the Hotel,my driver metioned he did not want me staying out in the bonnies, that it did not feel safe. There was no one at the hotel at all, all the doors to reception were locked,a man came around the side of the building with a shotgun,and asked what we doing there. My driver ran back to his car and I followed.A very scary situation that I would not recommend this hotel to tried to contact the hotel with no luck.

Quiet escape from energetic central Cuenca
We spent a week at Caballo Campana and enjoyed it completely. Nearby Cuenca is a beautiful, energetic, chaotic, small city. After a day in town it was wonderful to come home to the quiet tranquility of this lovely hotel. The staff, mostly family, were kind, courteous, and accommodating. They recommended local restaurants and a day spa, all were spot on and just what we asked for. The hotel is also very conveniently situated for access to El Cajas National park. My wife and I were in Cuenca for work. But the staff at Caballo Campana laid out our suite with rose petals on the bed and Champagne on the table. It felt like a honeymoon.
