The iconic Cuenca, Ecuador hotel, Mansion Alcazar, offers unsurpassed elegance and luxury, and a step back into history that cannot be duplicated. This is the hotel of Presidents, dignitaries, and local and foreign celebrities … and the jewel in the crown of Cuenca’s UNESCO World Heritage Site City.
And now, for the first time in decades, the property is ready for new ownership as a luxury boutique hotel, a high-end residential hotel or lavish condo complex; a restorative spa or retreat; a meeting, special events or conference center; or whatever the desire of the new investor might be.
The listing price for this fully furnished 14-room boutique hotel and premier Cuenca landmark is $2,5 million.
The sale price includes the Mansion building, all of the furnishings and artwork, beds and bedding, glasses, dishware, tables, chairs, beds, desks, dressers, all of the kitchen and hotel equipment, a formal restaurant with an extension set in a romantic pergola and a sophisticated Paris-type bar.
There is also a brand-new adjacent property with a stand-alone building — The Sucre Suites — with four Executive Condos, an elevator, a commercial space, and a business center, as well as 5 modern Garden Suites and a spa that are available for $1.5 million.
Should the buyer want to purchase both the colonial hotel and the additional adjoining properties, the listing price of $4 million can be negotiated.
Located on one of the most celebrated avenues in Cuenca — Simon Bolivar — this stately Cuenca Mansion was built in the late nineteenth century, and its classic architecture evokes the golden years of Ecuador’s early Republic days. Yet don’t let the history fool you. Every modern amenity and service has been included in what is one of the best high-end boutique hotels in South America. Consistently receiving awards, including the prestigious Conde Nast award of excellence, Mansion Alcazar is beloved by locals and visitors from around the world.
A complete restoration of this beautiful 130-year-old colonial, 1,017 sq meter Mansion began in 1999 and in 2001 the boutique hotel first opened its doors to rave reviews. Set on 1,057 sq. ft of land in the heart of downtown Cuenca, the hotel is only a 10-minute drive to Cuenca’s airport that connects with international flights in Guayaquil and Quito.
The hotel is the benchmark of opulence in the city of Cuenca, Ecuador’s cultural capital, and the country’s third-largest city.
