La Cigale (The Cicada) is the symbol of the south of France. It represents welcome and good fortune. And this is what we do best by inviting all ages and nationalities to our beautifully restored colonial house located in the heart of Cuenca's UNESCO World Heritage Listing.

We provide attractive 4 and 6 bed shared, twin, triple and double (matrimonial) rooms with ensuite bathrooms.
All include towels, soap, WiFi/internet, power outlets, comfortable mattresses and extra blankets.

Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day and we make your bed!

All rooms (except $6 shared) include a served breakfast in our excellent restaurant from 8am to 10am.
Our popular bar provides a great atmosphere by candlelight and good tunes every night until 23:30.
Happy Hour drinks are from 5pm to 8pm, and board games and cards to rent for free. We also have a chill out area with a hammock.

By Taxi:

The easiest way to get to La Cigale is by taxi. It's $2.50 from the main bus station (Terminal Terreste), and $3 from the airport (Mariscal Lamar International Airport) which both take approximately 5 min. Make sure you check the price with the driver beforehand. Once in the taxi, tell the driver Honorato Vasquez and Luis Cordero. At this corner, La Cigale is the yellow painted house two houses down on Honorato Vasquez opposite the church.

By Bus:

The 7, 10 and 26 buses leave outside the main bus station and airport at the local bus station every 10 min. The buses cost 25c a trip and should take about 20 min including walking time.

For the 7 bus, get off at Parque de la Madre on Avenida 12 de Abril. Cross the river to the right on Hermano Miguel and walk two blocks up the stairs to Calle Larga. Turn left on Calle Larga for one block, then turn right onto Presidente Borrero. Walk one block past Coffee Tree and turn left at La Merced church onto Honorato Vasquez. Walk one block and La Cigale is the yellow house on your right at 7-80.

For 10 and 26 buses, get off at Mariano Cueva and Honorato Vasquez. At this intersection, facing away from the direction the bus came from, walk right along Honorato Vasquez for three blocks until the end of the street and La Cigale is the yellow house on your right at 7-80.

By Car:

From La Castellana, head NW on Valencia toward Avenue Espana (94m). Turn left onto Avenue Espana and go through one roundabout (1.5km). At the second roundabout, take the second exit onto Avenue Huayna-Capac (900m). Turn right onto Honorato Vasquez and drive to the end of the street (850m).

La Cigale is the yellow house on the right opposite La Merced church. Parking is on the street or there is a carpark down the street for $5 per day. Whole trip should take 5 minutes.
