This hotel was built in 1976, and very little has been done afterwards.
The building was worn out and very little maintainance had been done. The door to our room could not open properly.
The whole building was completely open with no outer doors. That is why dogs could waltk everywhere in the building, and dog pee was not removed.

This building is a fantastic example of terrible Russian achitechture from the mid 1970.

I did a solo trip to Cuba and stayed at this hotel during Christmas for about 5 days.

1. spacious, great view on 4th floor and above in the morning or afternoon
2. most staff are friendly

1. they provide breakfast buffet on the condition that there are more tourists, which is not that fair. The quality of food changed dramatically during my stay.
2. they dont have wifi
3. the staff mostly dont speak english. I was surprised that there was no tourist desk
4. very loud music all through the day from 10am - 5pm.
5. the room cleaning service quality was not good. I found some ants on my bed!
6. the first day when i moved in - the blankets in my room were not clean. i have to ask for clean blankets

Lovely hotel outside the city, I recommend rooms 501, 2, you can walk 100 meters and arrange with the locals fisherman for a day out on a boat without having to pay tourists price, note that most of Cuba is a safe place

This hotel was surprisingly pleasant. They had a wonderful bar service with great staff. Additionally, the hotel pool was impressive in addition to a spacious lobby. The rooms were very nice as well. The only complaint I have about this hotel is the breakfast. Sometimes, a line would form and it would take a while to have breakfast. Other than that, everything was good! The view was amazing at this hotel!

Hotel Pasacaballo is one of the few hotel options in the Cienfuegos area. There are really only about four options to choose from, none of which would be the reason to come to Cienfuegos. Pasacaballo is located 20-30 minutes out of the town of Cienfuegos, with a nice view overlooking a body of water that separates it from another town. The architecture is reminiscent of a Soviet architect trying to inject some contemporary humor. Knowing that you are like most visitors to Cienfuegos, only coming for one or two nights and recognizing that none of the four hotels will leave you with memories of fine lodging, this mindset will allow you to maximize your enjoyment of staying at Pasacaballo. No internet, clean but simple rooms, with this realization, you’ll be fine!

I'm not 100% sure what Half Board means. But I will just give my best guess. I think what you have got is; Room, with Breakfast included. Sign in 16.00 Hrs., and Sign out 12.00 Noon. I seem to remember seeing this on one... More
