We were on a seven day tour of Cuba, then a week at the beach, this was the first hotel we stayed after our arrival from the UK and a 3hr coach journey from the airport, the hotel is full of old world charm, the rooms are clean and comfortable, food left a lot to be desired but it is... More

Sancti Spiritus became our favourite town of Colonial buildings, friendly people and interesting sightseeing. Quite by chance whilst looking for A Casa Particulares we came across Hotel Rijo and simply couldn't resist. We booked in and enjoyed our two very comfortable nights very much, feeling very refreshed ready for our long drive back to Havana. Only two rooms were available... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in this beautiful hotel with all the colonial furnishings, fountains, balconies and statues you could wish for. Oh what luxury to have 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets in the spacious suite! The seating area was very comfy and the air-con efficient. We felt that we had very good value for money here. The only...

Excellent for short stays. The colonial city is very peculiar. From this location you can easily reach other important, touristic places to the central region of Cuba (e.g. Trinidad, Cayo Santa María, Cayo Guillermo, Cienfuegos...). The service is very good and it's almost personalised. The rooms are bigger than average, with comfortable, colonial style furniture. Spacious bathrooms, like beach &... More

Lovely colonial hotel in a rather indifferent town. We were told our room (number 14) was one of the best rooms in the hotel 'with a view of the city'. In fact we had a tiny tiny window which had a view of a roof, but some of the rooms looked like they had no windows at all. It was... More

Nice spacious room and balcony with views over the square.Food not great but ok no buffet in the morning just measured portions albeit fresh eggs etc. One issue having a front room on Saturday night the club opposite and the square were very noisy until circa 4 a.m. Sunday was fairly quiet.

Our rooms were around a central courtyard as in most older Cuban buildings. Rooms were perhaps on the small side but acceptable with a neat shower room en-suite. Breakfast was served to you and was fine. We are now venturing out of the main tourist hotel areas and this was quite acceptable. Reasonable travelling accommodation.

This lovely colonial hotel is right on the square near the market. The interior of the hotel is beautiful with old furniture, courtyards and plants. We had a very nice evening meal here in the open courtyard at the front of the hotel overlooking the square.
