This colonial style hotel is the best location in Sancti Spiritus. It lies at spitting distance of the Yayabo bridge, the Parque Serafín Sánchez and the pedestrian boulevard, which is as much of a shopping street as you'll get in Cuba. Request for rooms 6, 7 or 8, because they are at the first floor overlooking the Plaza Honorato. The... More

This hotel in the centre of Sancti Spiritus is lovely. It is a small charming hotel located in the centre of the old town. The rooms were huge with lovely old fashioned furniture and bathrooms. This hotel is no good if you are looking for a modern intercontinental hotel but if you want authenticity then this hotel is perfect.

We drove here from Trinidad and found it quite difficult to find due to several one way systems but once we navigated the roads we managed to park right out side. We were approached by a poor old lady who signed that she would be looking after our car all night and not to worry about it. On check in... More

This hotel is very comfortable in a central location. Sancti Spiritus is quite small, so it is easy to walk around the town from here. Our room was comfortable and the staff all very friendly. It was the last night that our group was together in Cuba, so the hotel went to a lot of trouble to make us a... More

The hotel is in a noisy central location, and rooms on the ground floor are particularly noisy because they're right next to the street and have shutters but no windows so the sound insulation is really poor. Breakfast options are limited (no buffet). Avoid if possible.

This hotel is very Moorish in style with a wide, open veranda at the front (lovely for a drink), an inner courtyard with the rooms leading off that. Windows are small to keep the heat out and our room was spacious and comfortable, if a bit dark without the lights on. We were welcomed with Cuba libre cocktails which was... More

Interesting and well located hotel in the centre of town. As we were lead to expect - simple but comfortable mansion. We were impressed with the quality of the restaurant - we had a fish menu that, in retrospect, was hard to beat for price per bang in our coming 12 days in Cuba. As advertized there was no lift...

On our tour of Cuba we were aware that this was a 2 star hotel which we would be staying at for one night. Having stayed there now I would not have jibbed at it having a 4 star rating. It is a converted colonial house, so this dictates some of the room features. The ceilings were very high. This... More

Nice building, nice and elegant room, good location. Breakfast not that tasty. Safe parking in front of the hotel. I would definitely recommend it. Very clean hotel. Amazing patio. We did not have dinner there but the restaurant seemed nice.
