This hotel has some old-world charm, as well as your basic necessities. My room had good AC, a mini-fridge, and TV. The water pressure was a bit low and the water didn't get very hot, but this is to be expected in provincial Cuba. The staff was very helpful at both the front desk and in the lounge, and there...

Don't expect a 5 star chain-thing. This place has very high ceilings, huge stairway and charming details.. Pros: It's a good value, very clean, very helpful staff, rooms and baths are big and clean; the cleaning ladies offer laundry services; the guys help for the luggage ( did I mention how high the ceilings are??! :)) Cons: well, 1. the...

Our first hotel in Cuba and although not quiet up to western standard a great local hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The tour guide on the desk managed to arrange for us to go on a tour of the beautiful area and tobacco farm at a great value price. Don't expect western standards as this is Cuba Although... More

OK, let's just get this out of the way - Hotel Vueltabajo is in a small town in rural Cuba. Don't go and expect the Marriot. What you can expect is a beautifully maintained exceptional building with outstanding service. The rooms are very small by American standards, but well appointed for the 3rd world. We found ours to be comfortable... More

the architecture and the detail in the moldings and such is evidence that this place was once a beautiful and elegant hotel. I had room # 25 facing the street so it did get a bit noisy. Not much water pressure and hot water in the mornings when everyone is getting ready. One of the rooms didn't have a toilet... More

The main reason that most tourist groups stay at this hotel is because the Viñales hotels are full. That said, the staff is friendly, the downstairs public rooms have been nicely restored, breakfast is acceptable but slow, there seems to be plenty of hot water. We had an outside room which was a bit noisy on a Sunday night, but... More

... the exhaust and noise of all the cars from the street is making it really hard to sleep in the outer rooms. The hotel is located in the center of the city. It is a very nice colonial building, well maintained and it is very clean. The personnel is very nice and helpful. The dining room is big and... More

We stayed for one night and did not regret the choice. For the cuban standards it is a more than dignified hotel with obvious needs of total renovation. Very charming colonial house with nicer rooms on the main road and less nice but quiet rooms on the backyard. We opted for larger room with balcony on the front. very friendly... More

Where to start... we were the only guests as the hotel (now it's clear why) and immediately there was some confusion where to park the car and if it was safe, caused by the hotel staff. No elevator (just a note, not a problem for me) to the room and when the room was open, the smell was just something.... More

Spent two nights here. Sure, the hotel has some miles on it and if you're nitpicking will find all sorts of faults with the place, but by world traveler standards, it's excellent. Hot water, excellent air conditioning and clean/functioning bathroom. On top of that, the staff made up for any shortcomings with their service and smiles. I will always remember... More
