Well, after reading most of feedbacks (positives and negatives) and after stay in Hostal Colonial several times and for several-days-period I share with all the community of TripAdvisor my very own conclusions based on my personal experience in Cuba and at Hostal Colonial.

The welcoming atmosphere of the place (thanks to the staff) and the splendid renovation of this historical building have made this place the best Casa Particular where I stayed during my two weeks stay in Cuba. In addition, unlike to most of the Casa Particulares in Cuba, the breakfast is here really fresh and tasty. Another good point is the... More

We stayed only 1 night and our experience was positive although I have to say it is run more like a hotel than a classic casa (they even have a laundry service and are expanding to 2 more houses). When we arrived we were told that due to the early delivery to their daughter’s baby, our rooms had to be... More

We had an amazing time in Cienfuegos and this is also thanks to our hosts which were very nice and very helpful. They recommended the best places to see and to eat. Also, try their homemade food! It is delicious:)

Pepe was very helpful! The room was very nice and comfortable. This casa is in a great location. Breakfast was very nice! The rooftop terrace was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay here even though we only spent one night.

We had the room on the first floor, which is big with a big bed and a smaller one. The food was aplenty and very good. Very good fruits. All the people were very friendly and Isabel&Pepe are very friendly and very helpful hosts.

We stayed here for two nights and we couldn't have asked for more - we had two large interconnecting rooms (we were travelling as a group of 4 girls), clean, tidy and aircon. The terraces are lovely - especially the very top one which has a 360 view of the city! Highly recommend staying here.

We loved the bedroom we had here - it felt more like a hotel room! Breakfast was God. Isabel and Pepe are very friendly hosts. They do put pressure on you to eat there but don't feel like you have to. We ate there one night but like to explore other places so declined on the next 2 nights. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Isabel and Pepe were very friendly owners of this lovely colonial Casa. We had a family room, two rooms joining each other with a toilet/shower in between the rooms. The rooms were very comfortable, had lovely colonial pieces of furniture and good air conditioning (which is needed!!). The breakfast and dinners were very good.... More
