We only had to stay here for 1 night and my review takes that IMO account as well as other experiences in Cuba. The room we we're put into originally had 2 single beds and as a newly married couple, this didn't seem right. After a quick conversation with the front desk, we were kindly moved without question. The rooms... More

This historic hotel has a beautiful lobby & courtyard. Our group was greeted with hot washclothes and a rum & coke. But then when you got to your room - 2 twin beds and a narrow path to the bathroom. The bedspreads seemed like they hadn't been washed in years. A/C very noisy, but the room had a mini refrigerator.... More

I must say I have never stayed in this Hotel. I know some of the staff there and they are very nice. As other people have said it is lovely at the entrance and reception. The back portion (courtyard) where you can have your meal and can watch football on television is really nice. As far as the rooms are... More

The Colon is well situated on Calle Republic. I've only spent a couple of nights there and found the lobby and back bar great. The rooms are small and overpriced. I would advice travellers to book a casa particular instead.

The lobby and restaurant area are nice so what the heck's up with the musty smelly room with the gross stinky bedding? When I was younger, on a budget I mistakenly stayed at a 1-star hotel in Marseille, France, that had visible gross stains all over. The Hotel Colon was not that bad but it was getting pretty close to... More

The public area is amazing like a time capsule, it really is like walking through time. You go in and find the bar /reception area all made of wood, very elaborately done. Further in there is a court yard. There is usually live music and you can order a bit to eat and drinks. This area is also great. But... More

Beautiful colonial building with a very pretty courtyard where the bar/restaurant is situated. Feels like it's stuck in a time warp. The rooms are tiny with poor lighting - too much furniture squished into a small space but fine if you're on your own. However, others in my group who were sharing hated it as there wasn't enough room for... More

Pleasant reception area and inner courtyard. The bedrooms are dangerously small .our room had 2 single beds with a very small space between . It was very difficult to move round the room without hitting your legs on the beds. Not suitable for any but the agile! Tiny bathroom . The food was only just adieu ate.

Stayed here for 1 night as part of a touring holiday, such a charming place with a lovely old world feel about it. Rooms are very tall, & my room, I had a room to myself just about had space for twin beds, the bathroom again was very small, I don't know how a couple would manage with their luggage... More

Hotels in Cuba vary a great deal and in many ways cannot be judged in the same terms as hotels in more developed tourist areas. Many are government run and are as inefficient and bureaucratic as you would expect. Personally I prefer that to soulless international chains. We stayed at Colon just one night. The hotel has been recently restored... More
