The hotel itself is simply beautiful and unique. The staff were very friendly, they welcomed us and we felt immediately at home. At the time we visited, there was a fuel shortage and the owner did his utmost best to help us finding fuel. Highly recommended!

From the moment you step in, you feel transported to another world 100 years back. Twisted columns and arches, Carrara marble staircase, old mirrors and exquisite doors and furniture, a delightful patio with plants, 7-m ceilings, and two terraces in the tower providing amazing views of Cienfuegos. The owner Antonio Jose Barón proudly tours you through the palace, explaining with great passion the history of the house and the details of the restoration. Outdoor dining is planned in the rooftop in the near future. The staff, Laetitia in particular, were also perfect hosts, helping out with directions and booking a taxi to Trinidad for the next day. The on-site chef cooks dinner and prepares a delicious breakfast before you set out to explore the town. Location is best in Cienfuegos, one block from Parque Martí, the city heart. We could not ask for a better treat for our family of three, and will always treasure the time we spent in Palacio Baron Balbin. An unforgettable experience that we recommend without hesitation for anyone visiting the nice city of Cienfuegos.

This beautifully and tastefully restored historic home was easily the best place we stayed during our trip through Cuba. Centrally located in the spectacular city of Cienfuegos, the splendor of the house was only exceeded by the kindness and helpfulness of the staff (they have their own trained chef!).

The rooms are spacious, airy and clean. The common areas for the 5 - 6 rooms are grandiose and magnificent. The staff and the owner are really friendly and make you feel at home. The host is knowledgeable, present, visible all day, very friendly, funny and speaks fluent English. The chef makes good food and the kitchen is open all day. The night watchman is helpful, very friendly and funny. I highly recommend Palacio Barón & Balbín.

We stayed at this place for a night while visiting Cienfuegos. We were welcomed by Laetita whom speaks very good English. Laetita and the chef are indeed very helpful. The place is situated right in the middle of the town. We can easily walk to the main attractions around the town. The decoration of the entire place is beautiful. Amazing view from the rooftop. Shower was a bit poor though. Overall it was a good stay - however, we still think that the room is a little bit too pricey.
