Who expects to go to Camaguay (beef capital of Cuba) and find this amazing colonial hotel - an enormous building, all the original features (including the crazy old elevator). This hotel has not been updated in ages but the original features are a big compensation factor - wooden shutters in your room that open up to a really cool view... More

We have been told it is the best hotel in Camaguey. Well It was a very nice colonial building centrally located with inner court The furniture old style but in good condition however the whole hotel seemed neglected. Our room was spacious enough with balcony but the pedestrian area below, too noisy. The bathroom small, no amenities, only soap. The... More

This elderly grand dame of a hotel is located right on the main pedestrian shopping street of Camaguey within walking distance of practically everything. Rooms tend to be medium to small, somewhat dark with narrow windows sometimes quite difficult to open. Streetside rooms are noisy and interior rooms darker but quieter after the evening entertainment closes down around 23 hrs.... More

I loved this old, centrally located hotel. Camaguey is a delightful city, easily accessed by foot from the hotel. Although the rooms look a bit tired, they are comfortable, nice hot shower, and AC. Breakfast is up at the top floor with lovely views of the city.

This hotel is centrally located in a pedestrian area, but was very quiet and we had a good nights sleep. Medium sized rooms, with shutters and doors leading to a small balcony. Bathroom was fine and the water hot. The restaurant is on the top floor giving good views over the city, but the food was disappointing at dinner and... More

This is right in the town centre alongside the main shopping street which can be noisy but didn't disturb us. It's a hotel in the Grand Old Style and in places is showing its age. The restaurant is good for both breakfast and dinner buffets - although persuading the lift to go there is a skill in itself. (Try button... More

We walked in with no expectations and asked for a room. We were tired and frustrated from driving around the maze of one way streets, so were very appreciative that the bellman walked back to where we had left our car and drove with us to the parking spot. The room was small but adequate, the shower and air conditioning... More

Glad this was just a one night stopover on the way south. The service was extremely poor. The breakfast was poor quality & many items needed replenishing. Our room with a balcony overlooking the street was really small, although apparently it was one of the bigger ones ( I wouldn't like to see the smaller ones). The shower was cold... More

Firstly if you are driving to this hotel, Camaguey city is very difficult to navigate. On the out-shirt of the city centre as if by magic a cyclist appeared and asked where we were heading. The Gran we explained. Follow me he replied and before we new it he had lead us through the many one way systems and stopped... More

I had an extremely small room without windows. No water (warm and cold) in the showet in the morning. Offensive prostitutes in the lobby and bar did not take "no" for an answer. No internet. Next time I would find something Else in Camagüey.
