Close to the train station Hotel Plaza will provide you with a clean room and a shower which works well. If you reach Plaza by car, be careful to not overpay the carguards. Your car will probably have been washed the day after, without asking, and the cuban carwasher expects some CUC's for this service. A safe is available at... More

The Hotel Plaza is an immense government run hotel, sitting next to the train station. It is walking distance to the old town. I visited as part of an organized tour through San Cristobal, the the Government run travel agency. There are much nicer options closer to the old town and its attractions. Check in was efficient. The elevator was... More

The ugliest and most neglected hotel we have been in Cuba! The location is horrible, across the railway station! The hotel is depressing because it's dark and dirty. As a result we hated Camaguey. The pictures on website should be more accurate!!!

We were scheduled to stay in this hotel for two nights as part of our Cuban tour organised by Havanatours. Mid-range hotels we were promised. Hotel was horrible. Not a good impression from the moment you walk in, an old run down colonial building next door to the railway station (= noisy trains all night). The courtyard has been covered... More

Well what can I say about this hotel. It was horrible .. The rooms were smelling horrible, stains in the sheets, the shower was broken, very noisy (you can hear the train passing by all the time). Breakfast was horrible too. In potential it is an amazing hotel because of its architecture but they didn't do anything with it ..... More

Stayed here for one night as part of our Explore group holiday. Rooms were basic, furnishings were past their best but otherwise functional. The lift did not work but the porters were very efficient with the bags. Pleasant reception and bar area downstairs. Served a nice welcome cocktail on arrival. Buffet breakfast in the morning was adequate. Clearly had been... More

We've been at this hotel trough a bird tour and we stayed 2 nights here. Disgusting food, rooms are ugly and the stuff sneak your gadgets. My husband forgot his phone in the room and we've been to faraway to come back after it. We've called the manager to sort it out and they declined that was in the room.... More

Had my cell phone swiped by the cleaner at this hotel. But I just couldn’t figure out how. I know I left it in the room the previous afternoon. Did not take it out that evening and had to clear the area at 5 a.m. to go to another destination the next morning. As a well experienced traveller I know... More

I can do cheap accomodation, but I can't do dirty. There is SO much potential to be such a grand place, but it is far from it now. Everything from cleanliness to food was very poor. No water, a bottle of wine to say sorry, but we didn't even want to stay, we were ment to be there 2 nights,... More

Rambling hotel next to the railway station. Room was fine with good a/c. Breakfast average. No hot water, but given a bottle of wine as compensation! Had room at the back of hotel. Awful outlook but quiet. Avoid front rooms unless you like trains and early alarm call from first trains.
