Remember, this is Cuba. 4-stars here do not mean 4 stars in Europe or anywhere else. But we were surprised by this hotel. It looks great and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. We did not have any windows to speak of, but the Airco works and that is the most important during the hot and humid summer climate. Breakfast... More

It's tough for any hotel in Cuba to get a 5 star rating when compared with world standards. I'd give this place 4 by Cuba standards and 3 in world standards. The lobby area and public spaces are gorgeous. The rooms are a bit plain, but have high ceilings. Our hot water worked fine. Beds were comfortable. AC worked. We... More

We were on a tour and stopped overnight here. Our cases were taken up to our rooms. The interior of the hotel is amazing with high and beautifully decorated ceilings. There is a magnificent staircase to the rooms. Our room was at the front - large with a balcony. On our arrival the noise from the traffic was loud as... More

This town centre hotel in an attractive historic colonial building provided a comfortable and pleasant stay. Our room had been recently refurbished and was immaculate. The only problem was the water pressure - the water was hot, but not very plentiful! Breakfast was not elaborate, but was fresh, wholesome, and couteously served. The outstanding feature was the friendly, welcoming, and... More

Only one night at this hotel. There was some sort of festival down the street but this hotel is located on a busy road and our room overlooked this. It was very noisy and ear plugs were required. We were originally told our rate included our evening meal so we went to the hotel restaurant and ordered. Then to be... More

This historic hotel is in the centre of town, conveniently located for the main sights. Our room had a high ceiling, a balcony overlooking the road and, by Cuban standards, was well equipped. There is a bar/night club over the road which has loud music and the passing traffic is noisy, but fortunately the road traffic dies down at night... More

This hotel has some old-world charm, as well as your basic necessities. My room had good AC, a mini-fridge, and TV. The water pressure was a bit low and the water didn't get very hot, but this is to be expected in provincial Cuba. The staff was very helpful at both the front desk and in the lounge, and there...

OK, let's just get this out of the way - Hotel Vueltabajo is in a small town in rural Cuba. Don't go and expect the Marriot. What you can expect is a beautifully maintained exceptional building with outstanding service. The rooms are very small by American standards, but well appointed for the 3rd world. We found ours to be comfortable... More
