The Los Helechos Hotel is a 70ies, somehow East German style hotel in a beautiful mountainous surrounding which lowers the somewhat cold feeling the architecture breathes. However, the rooms are quiet and vary spacious. As in many other places (warm) water is only available during certain hours (from 7am in the morning). The garden and the surrounding mountains are beautiful.... More

We stayed here one night as part of the topes overnight tour. Arrived in the evening, check in was easy and we received a free welcome drink. One thing not to miss was the bowling alley. The rest of our tour went to bed early to rest for the next day, but took our tour guide out to the bowling... More

We stayed at this hotel on an overnight excursion from Havana to Trinidad and other cities. It served its purpose, but I would have preferred staying closer to Trinidad. The hotel was OK, serving the purpose of hosting guests for one night only. The room was clean, beds good, bathroom newly renovated. But the bathroom came with no shampoo, no... More

This is for a one night stop when doing an over night trip to Trinidad. Clean and food was good. ventilation in room worked. Interesting stay it felt like a hotel in the Soviet block in the 1970s so interesting for this alone. Nice people. Really interesting trip to mountains/waterfalls on russian trucks.

This is one of the best hotels we've had in Cuba. The rooms were renovated, with a small but nice and clean bathroom. The restaurant is quite good, and the best we've had in the government owned hotels. It is on walking distance of the fantastic city of Trinidad, therefore you can easily go into the city during the night.

This is the best place to stay in the Tropes de Collantes national park but it has its limitations. We stayed 2 nights in one of the 'bungalows', in a chalet complex reminiscent of Butlins at its best. The architecture is as curious as described elsewhere and as well maintained (March 2013) as possible in a sub-tropical climate. Occasional insects... More

For the main purpose this hotel seems to serve, it meets the requirements. It appeared that the majority of guests to the place were part of overnight excursions from the main tourist areas to the North coming in to do the hiking tour in the Escambray Mountain Range. So as a result most of us were tired folks living out... More

As most reviewers here we spent a night at the hotel as part of a Trinidad and hiking tour. The room is basic but clean, with a cute flower arrangement by the maids when we checked in. Staff don't speak much English if you are only and English speaking tourist, but they are all very friendly and nice. After all,... More
