This hotel is very good and popular with tour groups. We had called ahead to verify our reservation and were told we were being bumped to a low end beach resort. This hotel was the most expensive of our 4 city tour and even though we had a prepaid voucher from home they attempted to bump us without warning. In our case it was by an American "people to people" group. It was only with the help of the Palacio Azul in Cienfuegos that we convinced them we were determined to stay there. We were given a very good room which had originally been allotted to the leader of this group.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The small La Ronda Hotel opens onto Parque Cespedes and offers a value-priced budget alternative to the deluxe Iberostar a stone's throw away, while having the advantage of a heart-of-affairs location compared to the similarly priced Hotel Horizontes Las Cuevas up the hill. The concept is fairly simple: take a 19th-century townhouse, fix up the plumbing and install modern bathrooms, give the rest of the building a sprucing and open up to foreign tourists. Hotel Cubanacan (formerly Islazul) La Ronda is located in the centre of Trinidad which has been declared a world heritage site by the UNESCO. Nearby is the Romantic Museum, the Plaza Mayor (Main Square), the Santa Ana Church the Cantero Palace and much more. The 17 air-conditioned bedrooms are on two levels opening to an atrium patio with palms and potted plants. Furnishings are somewhat meager, and the mattresses and pillows are second rate. Nonetheless, the rooms are the equal of most private room rentals (the most popular options in Trinidad) in town. The high ceilings and colonial tile floors help keep rooms cool, and those facing south have tall French doors opening to balconies overlooking the lively plaza. Satellite TVs, telephones, small refrigerators, and in-room safes are standard. The small restaurant and bar here are charming, albeit simple. Continental and criolla meals are served. For a splurge, the ritzy restaurants and bars of the Iberostar Gran Hotel Trinidad are literally a 50-pace stroll away. La Ronda hotel has been recently renovated. ... more less
