We splurged on this hotel. It was the most expensive room of the week we were in Cuba and we stayed at a number of TripAdvisor top rated lodgings. It was luxurious: from the bidet, complimentary toiletries to the slippers and robes that are provided.
The rooms are large and had a sitting area with a couch as well as a lovely terrace, with chairs a table and potted bogenvelia, facing Céspedes Park. Our room had a king bed and our friend's room had two queen beds.
As with so many public parks in Cuba, many people congregate in the park to socialize and escape their hot, small apartments so there was noise from the park until the wee hours of the morning. For us this was not a problem and did not detract from our experience. The hotel is well located and an easy walk to the historical centre of the city. We had a car and the only parking is on the street in front of the hotel under the watchful eyes of the doorman.
As noted by others the buffet breakfast was lavish: they even served smoked salmon. My only problem was, in a country where the citizens experience few choices in their diet, the breakfast seemed decedent. I asked the management if the wastage was distributed in some way to others and was told "sometimes"; however I have my doubts.
If you want accommodation that is equal to any luxury hotel in the world then this should be your choice in Trinidad; however choose it realizing it is just that, a 5 star hotel that could be anywhere in the world.
