Hotel Isla de Cuba is in a great location to explore historic Camaguey & will suit young travellers visiting the city on a budget.
Isla de Cuba is only a short walk from the main street of Camaguey & its bars, restaurants & attractions. This may be a basic 2-star hotel but it provides an ideal base to experience the city by both day & night.
Isla de Cuba has 42 rooms, with communal areas such as the lobby, bar & restaurant that are brightly decorated with eye-catching designs.
The food of this hotel could be improved, while its location means that most rooms have some level of street noise. Isla de Cuba is therefore probably better suited to younger travellers seeking somewhere simple & inexpensive to lay their heads while exploring Cuba’s third largest city.
Isla de Cuba has 42 rooms which continue the colourful theme of the hotel’s communal areas. All rooms are ensuite with either twin or double beds (the rooms can be on the small side, particularly when twin beds are separated). There are no windows in the hotel’s inside rooms, although all rooms have standard facilities such as satellite tv & air-conditioning.
It was one of the most important cities in the colonial period, nowdays it has a wealth of fine baroque churches and some picturesque nooks and crannies, such as the restored Plaza San Juan de Dios.
Sightseeing in the city will inevitably bring you to a closer appreciation of the life of the city's hero, Ignacio Agramonte, as there is both a park and a museum dedicated to his memory. The city itself is one of the prettiest in Cuba, full of architectural gems testifying to its colonial past.
Near the train station you can find The Museum of the Birthplace of Ignacio Agramonte. Visit the La Merced church opposite to see its peeling frescoes and the venerated objects stored in its crypt, finally the best of this city is Plaza San Juan de Dios which is an old cobblestoned square surrounded by brightly hued, single-storey buildings and a lovely yellow church alongside a restored former hospital.
