“Good choice in Cienfuegos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

This rating must be viewed in the context of the properties available in Cuba. However, we would stay here again.

The pluses are that the rooms are super clean, the hot water and water pressure plentiful, the building is beautiful and perfectly located, and it has an excellent bar (with friendly and capable bartenders and some food service if you need a snack or informal dinner). Another big plus is the rooftop terrace which provides a wonderful view of the city, both day and night. Purchase a couple cans of beer from the bar and head up top for a relaxing and beautiful Cienfuegos experience.

The downsides are uncomfortable mattresses and loud street side rooms. Bring earplugs and a noise machine, or request a quiet interior room. The breakfast buffet is rather dire, except for the made to order omelets and fresh fruit which we found to be the best options.

Obviously, the hotel does not match modern standards and it's easy to list its drawbacks. However, those are overweighted by its uniquely authentic atmosphere that has been accumulated there since mid XIX century. This experience is totally worth a stay (one night is enough though).

We stayed here two nights in a junior suite looking onto the street. It was very noisy due to the bar opposite but the reception staff very kindly gave us a different room for the second night. Lovely pool and nice bar with very friendly bar staff. Beautiful building with lots of character in an excellent location.

We spent two nights here as part of our touring holiday of Cuba, it is a lovely, colonial style hotel with a really nice pool area, good bar and is beautifully and spaciously laid out.
The rooms were stylish, clean and comfortable and the service friendly and polite if a little formal, though I guess this is in keeping with the surroundings.
We didn't eat here apart from breakfast which was underwhelming, buts drinks and the bar service was good and inexpensive considering the setting.
It is very conveniently placed for the town centre and the boulevard for shops and the arts and crafts market.
All in all a very pleasant stay and recommended.

A lovely, restored, boutique hotel, only a block from the Parque Jose Marti. Rooms were large and bathrooms modern. Very clean. Beds a little hard, but that seemed to be true all over Cuba. Lovely pool and bar area. A true colonial experience.

The rooms are large and clean. The maids were very responsive to our requests for additional items. Food in the restaurant was OK. Go upstairs to the terrace for a cerveza and a great view. we were here on a Grand Circle Foundation Trip.
