This was our last night in Cuba and what a great place to spend it. The room was fabulous quiet and large. The hotel is very well located close to all that there is to see. Very helpful and friendly staff. There was a brass band staying at the same time as us and they used the lobby for an... More

We rolled up at 06.30 off the overnight bus. The hotel staff were great, we got an early breakfast (an extra meal but at no cost) and they looked after our baggage and gave us a quiet area to sit until our room was ready. The room was quiet (we think many aren't) and well appointed. Staff helpful and breakfast... More

This old colonial style hotel has a lot of character, but no lift, however there a bell boys happy to take your cases - at a price. The rooms are decent sized with fridge and TV, but no coffee making facilities. Wifi is not available and the rooms could do with a fresh coat of paint. It is centrally situated... More

This hotel was the first stop on our tour and we found it charming. The rooms were lovely with very clean bathroom and toilet. The evening meal and breakfast were very good and enjoyable with good service

Receptionist Jose had been watching my friend & I smoking our cigars & told us they had cigars at good prices. They did a switch and bait with the what they showed us and sold us banana leave instead!

We stayed in Sancti Spiritus, which is a really great and nice city as well/worth a visit, in the Cubanacan Hostal del Rijo or also known as Hotel Encanto del Rijo. The building is a really nice one and the hotel is located right in the heart of Sancti Spiritus - right next to the beautiful cathedral - so you´re... More

Rooms are clean and charming old world Cuba. Prices are not bad for Cuba but compared to back here in Canada, the level of service , style and comfort... More

After staying in many worn-out hotels in Cuba, Hostal del Rijo was a very pleasant surprise. Very nice athmosphere, good rooms, plenty of warm water, and very good service. Would definitely recommend.

A marvellous hotel right in the middle of town set in an old Spanish villa with open central courtyard. Huge rooms and period furniture. Don't expect Internet access or any decent TV or, indeed, a wide choice of food - this is a country hotel somewhat off the beaten tourist route. Take some time to sample the rum cocktails in...

They were unable to make a pina colada because they had no pineapple juice...in Cuba!!! We asked for a quiet room and we were happy with... More
