Property Info

Founded in the early 20th century, this is the oldest of Camagüey's hotels. It preserves most of its original architectural characteristics. A place of obligatory reference in the city, it treasures, among others, a list of relevant events, the stay of Chilean poetess Gabriela Mistral and the broadcast of the first radio station outside the Cuban capital. Intimate and friendly, it's known for the pleasant manners of its employees and its excellent geographical location, right on the junction of the main into the city (railroad, airport and roads) and a few meters away from the commercial area.

Average, for Cuba

Reviewed 17 may, 2017

Not the worst nor the best place we stayed while on tour in Cuba. The elevator was broken (never found one on the entire tour that worked) so the room on the top floor was a hike. The hotel has definitely been neglected but at least the room was clean, there was hot water in the shower and there was a seat on the toilet! Our room was huge with two beds, a writing desk, a fridge (which may not have worked). There is a window overlooking the square that is covered by just a set of shutters, so the bustle of outside could keep you up but one of our party had a room directly over the bar and the exhaust fan was deafening! Each room had a "theme decor"-- ours was the Cuban poet Luis Suardiaz...his writing table, typewriter and a few of his books were on display...a nice little touch. The location would be good for a walking tour of the town - there some interesting areas around the hotel to walk...just take care to mind your location -- the streets seem to wind and end abruptly and the road in front of the hotel along the rail tracks was totally torn up and dangerous. For one night on a guided tour it was fine. If I had a choice I'd try for a "casa Particular".

seen better days

Reviewed 4 april, 2017

Once the main railway hotel, the Plaza has definitely seen better days and is in need of serious investment which is unlikley to happen in the near future. The bar was closed, the lift out of order and the dining room dark and dingy. The buffet breakfast was reasonable. The room itself was clean but I found the bed incredibly hard ( my husband did not mind it however). The shower was scarcely more than a trickle and the water never got above luke warm. The road outside is being dug up so access is difficult. The main problem ffrom my poin of view, however, was that we were there on a Saturday night when the nearby pedestrainised precinct becomes a giant party. The noise from this and the trains meant a very pooor nights sleep. That said none of the hotels in Camaguey are brilliant and for one night it is cheap and functional but if staying longer then it may be better to seek out a casa

Short visit to Hotel Plaza in Camaguey

Reviewed 28 april, 2016

Close to the train station Hotel Plaza will provide you with a clean room and a shower which works well. If you reach Plaza by car, be careful to not overpay the carguards. Your car will probably have been washed the day after, without asking, and the cuban carwasher expects some CUC's for this service. A safe is available at the reception (3 CUC) while there was a safe in the room but the key was missing. If you are a light sleeper, the neighbourhood might be too noisy. Breakfast in hotel Plaza was rather poor. The eggs and bacon were cold and there was no cheese or meat for the bread which was reasonably acceptable. The toaster will please you, which was the only option for me.

Big Government Run Hotel

Reviewed 11 april, 2016

The Hotel Plaza is an immense government run hotel, sitting next to the train station. It is walking distance to the old town. I visited as part of an organized tour through San Cristobal, the the Government run travel agency. There are much nicer options closer to the old town and its attractions. Check in was efficient. The elevator was broken, so up a flight of stairs to our room which was clean and large. The shower worked well and we had hot water. The AC worked fine and the room was comfortable. We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel- the food was ok, again you can do better elsewhere. This must have been quite a showplace in its heyday and it was clean.

Ugly

Reviewed 13 february, 2016

The ugliest and most neglected hotel we have been in Cuba! The location is horrible, across the railway station! The hotel is depressing because it's dark and dirty. As a result we hated Camaguey. The pictures on website should be more accurate!!!
