A mid-sized hotel with boutique style and service, La Unión is housed in a beautiful example of a neo classical, colonial building in the heart of Cienfuegos – a charming city known as the "Pearl of the South."
While the entire city is known as the "Pearl of the South", Cienfuegos possesses another gem: the gleaming Hotel La Unión.
Located in a privileged spot in the city center a stone's throw from Parque José Martí, Hotel La Unión was founded in 1869, making it one of Cienfuegos’ oldest hotels. A colonial building constructed in neoclassical style, it was built on farmland once owned by Don Tomás Terry, a wealthy merchant for whom the city’s marvelous theater is named.
La Unión fast became popular and hosted notable guests such as Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova (who also visited Havana’s Hotel Inglaterra). After the triumph of the revolution, it ceased to operate as a hotel, until 2000, when a major renovation brought it back to life.
There are several inviting areas to relax here including two patios, an open-air bar/courtyard, restaurant and the pool – tucked into an interior courtyard guarded by a duo of sculpted lions. Hotel La Unión’s "Venus Negra" terrace offers amazing views over the city and bay. There is also a small business center, fitness area and modest spa.
While not as popular as other Cuban cities like Santiago de Cuba, Havana and Trinidad, Cienfuegos is a charming, seaside city which surprises visitors with its hospitality, cleanliness, and lively art scene. It also has terrific examples of colonial architecture – Hotel La Unión among them.
