Fodor's Expert Review Hostal Cánovas

Calle Fray Luis de León 38, Cuenca, Castille-La Mancha, 16001, Spain

Near Plaza de España, in the heart of the new town, this quirky inn is one of Cuenca's best bargains, and though the lobby's not impressive, the inviting rooms more than compensate. Brothers Edilio and Paulino, the owners, spent more than two years restoring the run-down 1878 building before they opened the hostel. The rooms have creaky hardwood floors, gold-trimmed burgundy fabrics, and decorative white moldings.
