The staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful and our room was lovely with a great balcony. We were given a welcome drink in the comfy bar. The hotel only has a very basic snack menu and no other dining facilities. We thorough recommend walking away from town to the end of the road. There is an old building... More

Cienfuegos perhaps the cleanest city in Cuba, lots of newer buildings. Hotel Blue Palace excellent staff superb, snack food and breakfast very good. Room was small but very clean with a good bathroom, lots of hot water although takes a while to come through.

My boyfriend and I travelled around Cuba for a couple of weeks in September-October. We visited Cienfuegos for one night after having been to Havana, then Vinales and then Trinidad. We chose to stay at the Palacio Azul because of the history and uniqueness of the building. And we weren't disappointed in that regard - the building is so beautiful... More

We stayed here for one night and I can only recommend it! The manager is super SUPER sweet - I was sick and he took care of me bringing me tea and clearly going out of his way to make me feel better. Hotel is adorable, really old-school but super clean and lovely. It was like staying in a mini... More

We stayed here one night and had the bedroom previously enjoyed by Dictator Chavez. The restoration of the villa has been impressively done and it has a lot of atmosphere. Our bedroom was rather dark but our bathroom had a wonderful view of the bay. Unfortunately the shower was broken and the bath plug did not fit the plug hole... More

We spent a night in the Hostal Palacio Azul in Cienfuegos. The hotel from outside is wonderful, it belongs to the protected Villas in Cienfuegos and just looks great. The staff was very friendly and had a lot of information for us. It´s a 10 Minutes drive away from the old town but it´s right next to the beach where... More

This hotel is certainly painted a livid shade of blue, but a palace it is not. Our first floor room was large and had a great view of the sea and the adjacent yacht club. The room next door but one to ours had a plaque pointing out that Hugo Chavez, the late dictator of Venezuela had stayed in it... More

Large and clean room with fabulous view of the sea. We had a room on the first floor. Good service. Great location although there was some noise at night from a nearby bar. Beautiful building and 10 minutes walk from the end of Punta Gorda.

Colonial refurbished to a generally good standard. Out of the main town but near enough to take a bike rickshaw. Downstairs rooms are poor - cramped and noisy too if you get the one next to the kitchen. Upstairs rooms are a different matter altogether - spacious and well appointed. Unfortunately you can't reserve so it is a bit of... More
