I was with a group of friends, and some hated it. I loved the old Colonial building, the delightful staff, the garden aria , and the street outside, which has benches for people watching. The rooms are tiny, (because they have had the bathrooms added later), but everything worked, the Air, the TV, hot water. The food was OK and... More

An older style colonial hotel built around an interior terrace. Sounds idyllic, but the reality is a dirty, badly maintained building where nothing works. I had the misfortune to spend a stifling in tiny cell like room. Neither the air conditioning nor the shower worked, but worst of all my door did not lock.

The public spaces in this hotel are very modern, but there is no noise control, so everything filters up into the very small rooms meaning noise at all times. Breakfast was very sparse, but I htink it was jsut what food they had, so not complaining. We left out ipad in the room, and getting it back was a very... More

A lovely restored Spanish Colonial building in the heart of Camaguey. The rooms are on the small side although yhe high ceilings give an impression of space, Facilities FAIRLY are basic. However the hotel overflows with charm and atmosphere. The food was quite good , the staff friendly and helpful. The Colon is adding new rooms by expanding into the... More

We arrived one evening in Camaguey without arranging a casa particular, nor a hotel, so we asked on the street for a referral and ended up at the Hotel Colon. Located on the main walking boulevard, this nearly 100 year old hotel has classic Cuban architecture, seemingly frozen in time. Not knowing a little tip in advance, we simply walked... More
