Hostal AB (Armando & Belkis)

My husband and I reserved a room with a house in the Rough Guide, but when we arrived, we were referred to Armando & Belkis' house. Unsure of what to think of being sent elsewhere, we looked around town for another home and finally came back to stay. This was the best decision we made in Cienfuegos. The house, built in 1952 by Armando's parents, is a perfectly preserved American-style 50's suburban home with original furniture. An en-suite bathroom has the best shower I took in Cuba with hot water under pressure - the addition of a small water tank next to the shower head made all the difference. The room was cleaned daily with even the toilet paper turned under, hotel-style. The couple are so sweet, and their children and grandkids are also friendly and helpful. We were ! welcomed to a family party on the new backyard party pavilion and danced the night away with Armando's grandson and his friends! A real highlight of our trip! We could hear the baseball game just 500 m away each night and watched with the family on the TV. Armando called casas for us in the next town and provided information on things to do in town. I watched him call everyone he knew looking for a room for a girl coming to town from a friend's house. He enjoyed using his limited English with us and welcomed us warmly. Belkis warmed up to us and was absolutely wonderful and helpful. The house is just a block off the main street and an easy walk to the rest of Punta Gorda and La Punta. It's a pleasant 10-15 min walk or $3 taxi to the centre of Cienfuegos along the Malecon. Despite the central location, it's a quiet neighborhood for sleeping. Armando scoffed that we were only staying at houses in our guide book, as so many good house don't make these books (like his!)! , but this one deserves to be listed.

How was your room?:Spotless with antique furniture and plenty of space.

How was the food they offer?: Excellent breakfast and good dinner. A nice selection of cocktails and minibar available.
