It was great. Clean. Great location.

Perfect location, wonderful staff. Our only complaint was the excessive club noise from across the street and microphone a woman was yelling into. This was no fault of Cucuve but something to consider-thin walls, rough night sleep if you are a light sleeper.

Very friendly hotel - small, but full of delightful character. Snacks and coffee & tea were always available in the common area, and the staff cooked us breakfast to our liking daily! Additionally, the front desk spent over an hour giving recommendations and helped book our excursions. Personalized experience, and very cute place in the middle of town! Highly recommend!
