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...

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....

Hostal Colonial has the best service and comfort in the entire city of Cienfuegos. This family offers you all you need to have an excellent stay in Cienfuegos, which by the way is to me the prettiest and cleanest city in Cuba. Isabel and Pepe along with their daughters and sons are a great example of a hardworking cuban Family...

This Hostal, unlike the casa particulars, had several rooms and we met some really nice travelers when we stayed there for 2 nights. We had been recommended this place from out host, Oscar, in Havana and did not regret it. The host, Pepe, spoke a tiny bit of English but could understand our broken Spanish. He recommended some places for...

We arrived in Cienfuegos without any reservations but fortunately Casa Colonial – our first choice - had a room available in a well-maintained colonial building, only 10 minutes walking from the Viazul bus terminal. Isabel and Pepe are perfect hosts; the breakfast they serve is great and plentiful; we love the ‘arepas’. The casa has three terraces on different floors...

We had no room there as we stood in the casa of his parents in law. But the whole family was so nice and we get help wherever we needed it. We has our dinner here on a beautiful terrace and went after dinner to the highest terrace to enjoy our Mojitos. This place is worth it to visit and...

We had a triple room in the upper terrace. It was large, clean with a nice bathroom. The location was great for multiple points throughout the city. We had dinner one night at the house. It was ok, not the best but not the worst. They did make great drinks!

This is a beautiful colonial home, still decorated for Christmas when we stayed here in early January. Isabel, Pepe, and their daughter have been running this casa for 20 years - and they know hospitality! Although it rained during our stay (the hosts provided umbrellas!), the third floor terrace and fourth floor lookout tower provide wonderful 360 degree views of...
