The Santa Lucia hotel belongs to the same family group which owns the Villarosa restaurant (also in Cuenca) which is considered as one of the country's best continental restaurants by the main international travel guides and locals alike.
The house where the Santa Lucia hotel is located was built by the first governor of Cuenca in 1859. The house remained in the Vega family for over a hundred years, before restoration of the house began in 1999 and lasted more than two and a half years.
Santa Lucia hotel has rescued and preserved this piece of Cuenca heritage, keeping this house as an example of the architectural style of the last part of the XIX Century Ecuador. At the same time offering all the modern comforts
Each of the 20 rooms in the hotel has a boutique feel with its hanging wall Muriel’s and paintings and wooden floors while maintaining the modern comfort and unique style of the modern era. In the middle of the courtyard is the restaurant, which serves lovely evening meals and is a great place to watch life go by.
