Charming Posada de San José in the heart of Cuenca, a World Heritage City since 1996. This 17th century “hanging house” really is one of those special places located in a special town. It manages to imbue atmosphere, history and peace. Situated in the heart of the historic quarter of beautiful Cuenca, the Posada de San José seems precariously perched over the cliff - the term “colgada” (hanging) is generically used to describe this type of house – and the views it affords over the River Huécar gorge are truly magnificent and breathtaking. Its privileged location is ideal for visiting all the cultural and artistic attractions of the Historic Cuenca.

Once through the posada’s old portal and ancient walls though, the visitor will note a simple but well organised decor, with liberal use of old furniture. Views from the dining room are impressive indeed and a great way to enjoy the delicious breakfast or evening meals available there. As for the rooms, these are comfortably furnished, in keeping with the surroundings and architectural features of the building. Most have views over the Huécar River Gorge and garden, whilst some rooms even come with relaxing terraces.

Breath-taking Views
Date of stay 27/09/2017
Posada San Jose was the most fabulous accommodation. Beautiful room with large ensuite bathroom, complete with all amenities. The view over the ravine is to die for from your bedroom and the dining areas. Positioned inside the old town , it is a little challenging to drive to through the narrow streets, but worth the effort to get there. Parking is nearby in a station for a reasonable cost. The hotel is inside a restored home for the cathedral's choir and so is a maze of stairs and corridors so carrying heavy bags up and down would not suit everyone. The breakfast was simple but delicious too. We loved everything about Posada Dan Jose.

La posada es muy sencilla y tiene una situación inmejorable. Nos dieron una habitación con una amplia terraza, con unas impresionantes vistas al río Huécar. El desayuno (delicioso) lo sirven en un salón con la mismas vistas que la habitación. Muy recomendable. Mientras desayunábamos mi marido se quedo mirando por los amplios ventanales y dijo "Secret Places siempre acierta"
