Hotels in Cienfuegos City, Cienfuegos

Hotel Encanto La Union

Hotel Encanto La Union

This is one of Cuba\'s provincial gems. First, take the location just one block from the main plaza in the heart of downtown. Then there\'s the thoughtful remodel of this three-story, neoclassical 19th-century hotel, which exudes elegant yesteryear airs thanks to its antiques and quality antique reproductions.

All 39 rooms, 11 junior suites, and two suites are arrayed around an atrium courtyard with tinkling fountain. The period decor is a romantic throwback in time, and the new two-tone ceramic floors and modern bathrooms bring the hotel into the 21st century. The amenities are as to be expected, including air conditioning, satellite TVs, radios, telephones, small refrigerators, and in-room safes. And bathrooms here, clad floor to ceiling in modern tiles, even have bidets and travertine countertops.

Hotel Gran Caribe Jagua

Hotel Gran Caribe Jagua

This is one of those hotels that gets your hopes up for from afar, or at least from the second you walk in the door. You\'ll love it\'s position at the south end of town, where it rises over the waters of Cienfuegos Bay ? take a south-facing room for the panoramic vistas over the bay and the Mughal-style Palacio del Valle. Built in Modernist style in the 1950s, it was recently revamped in sophisticated contemporary style. Today the lobby, with its acres of glass walls on three sides, is both colorful and exciting, with its contemporary art and equally avant-garde furniture.

Your eyes are drawn irresistibly rearward to the pool and spacious, nicely remodeled pool-deck overhanging the bay. The lobby bar is a good spot to relax with either a cocktail or cappuccino; in fact, it\'s more visually appealing than the overly air-conditioned pool bar, with its cold 1950s-retro look.
