Smart and well-maintained hotel in an attractive colonial building in the heart of Cienfuegos.

Hotel La Unión is an attractive colonial building in the centre of the lively port of Cienfuegos, with a lovely view of the bay from the upper floors. This is a smart and tasteful boutique-style hotel, with pale blue, pinks and yellow tones striking a breezy tropical note.

The guestrooms have marble-effect bathrooms and period wooden furniture, but the colonial style is not ornate or overdone: the understated decor and furnishings and large windows lend a feel of space and light.

Other facilities include an attractive outdoor pool in an enclosed tiled area, surrounded by loungers, as well as a Jacuzzi and gym. The restaurant serves an à la carte menu and a buffet, and there's also a small snack bar. It’s popular and friendly, but note there is a weekend disco nearby.

Our Expert's Opinion

The Hotel La Union is a great choice for those wishing to stay in the heart of colonial Cienfuegos. It is in perfect keeping with the rest of the colourful grand buildings of the city centre, and with bright airy rooms and a shaded swimming pool is the perfect place to escape the warmth of southern Cuba.
