About Hotel Islazul Puerto Principe
Islazul
City Centre Hotels
Click to check a special offer out!
Hotel Islazul Puerto Principe is a simple, no-frills hotel in a good, central location that should appeal to younger travellers & those on a budget.

Located in the main avenue of historical Camaguey, there is plenty to do within easy walking distance of Puerto Principe & the hotel is not far from the train station.

Unsurprisingly for a centrally located budget hotel, Islazul Puerto Principe is fairly dated but it is clean & well-maintained. The hotel has a roof bar where there is live entertainment every night & this also provides great views of the city. This turns into a nightclub after dark, which is great for guests who enjoy partying though it can get fairly loud if you are hoping for a good night’s sleep.

Puerto Principe’s restaurant serves a range of Cuban & international cuisine, although the food can be hit & miss. However, there are plenty of places to eat & drink nearby.
The hotel also has a café to keep peckish guests going with snacks by day or night.

Puerto Principe is a cheap, basic hotel that is ideal for exploring Camaguey by day & night, though it can get a little noisy & so probably suits younger travellers.

Details of Standard Room  
Puerto Principe's rooms differ in size but all are ensuite with air conditioning & satellite TV. A handful of visitors have expressed concern about flimsy door locks so it may is recommended to check this &, if necessary, ask for a room with a safe deposit box for extra security. The rooms, like the hotel, are basic but clean & some overlook the main avenue.

Guide to Camaguey City
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.
