Based on comments on the Internet it wasn't quite clear to us what to expect. What we found was simply no good. No water upon arrival early pm, and only a trickle in the shower later in the evening. Rooms very small and simple. A/C functioning but at a level to blow your eardrums. We had dinner in the non... More

This place is a filthy place where the staff does not care about the place. The last time the rooms and the main areas were cleaned date back to the inauguration day on 1939. Spider webs all over the room and the curtains inside the room full of dust until a point you can see the black traces of dust.... More

Nice and clean hotel in the heart of Camaguey. I would stay there again should I ever go back. Food in the buffet was decent. The dining room has an amazing view to the city. Hotel personnel was nice and personable. Can't complaint!

This hotel is in a central location on a pedestrianised street. The rooms are clean and spacious with TV, aircon, fridge, small balcony and clean bathroom with big shower (but a little weak and chilly - as many showers in Cuba are). The hotel has many amenities, cafe, garden bar, travel desk offering excursions, swimming pool, rooftop bar and restaurant... More

Driving around Cuba my wife and I stopped of in Camaguay, a dump of a town compared to many in Cuba, Sancti Spiritus for example, which is making an effort to clean itself up. We stayed at the Gran Hotel as it was highly recommended as the best in Camaguay. Sullen recaption staff, couldn't car less bar staff and waitresses.... More

Stayed with a group at Gran Hotel in Camaguey. Room on the 3rd floor was clean and the buffet meals were average. Cigar store in hotel was helpful. Hotel is located in the center of town. The rooms are dark because of the shutters over the windows.. As a rule of thumb reducing the star rating of the hotel at... More

We stayed for two nights at the Gran Hotel as part of our tour to Cuba. It is an old building with a beautiful interior and some great old furniture. Our room was very basic and small (the bathroom door bumped into the sink) with two twin beds. But it had great air-conditioning and a nice hot shower so we... More

This was a nice hotel with basic accommodations, a place to sleep and clean up. At first the beds did not look very comfortable, but I slept pretty well on them. Good hot water and pressure for the shower. Better that the previous hotel we stayed in. The pool area was a little small, but the second night there was... More

Very clean. A/C not very good, though. Hotel staff pleasant enough. Huge breakfast buffett. But as with most government owned hotels and restaurants,... More

This is a government owned hotel. Not well maintained paint on window pains, pealing ceilings, limited hot water, etc. Food is only fair and the restaurant staff are neither friendly or helpful. Do not stay here unless there is no better place to stay in Camuguey

It is nice to know your opinion about our hotel, even when you had not the best experinces here. It is true, we have a very old building, it was inaugurated in 1938, and even we try to keep the good maintenance in the hotel, sometimes it is not enough for some clients, but mostly of the time the charm...
