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

What a lovely hostal. The building is like an iced cake dripping with character. The rooms are big and spacious and whilst the mattresses and pillows are nearing the end of their lives I still managed to get a good nights sleep. The breakfast was fresh and tasty and served in a beautiful dining room. The roof top with views... More

This romantic, sea front located mansion hotel is located at the quiet punta gorda part of Cienfuegos. The mansion is like a birthday cake you dreamed of. Interior is dated but charming. Bedrooms basic with airconditioning, bath and fridge. Fantastic sea views from most rooms. Breakfast is reasonable good and freshly made, remember! This is Cuba! The breakfast area provided... More

We spend one night as stopover to Trinidad in the Palacio Azu. It is a small, colonial style Hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious. The view from the terrace and roof top is splendid – you are overlooking the marina and the Cienfuegos Bay. It's 15 min walking distance from the city centre. Service staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast... More

We only had one night in the Palacio Azul but it was just the kind of quirky, unusual, friendly place we like. It's a folly of a villa, painted a pretty blue with a rooftop terrace with a mirador so you can drink your special blue cocktail at sunset, looking all round at the sea and the old part of... More

Located two to three kms from the historic town centre along the sea front. The building dates back to 1921 and has all the original patterned and well-preserved tiles on the floors; there are 12 different designs. Room ceilings are 6 metres high and the building is well maintained. The rooms have been furnished with pretty floral designs that give... More
