Rooms at La Union Hotel

In keeping with the rest of the hotel, rooms and suites at La Union are classically appointed and epitomise the colonial glamour of Cienfuegos. Many boast stunning  views over picturesque Cienfuegos or the hotel’s beautiful pool and courtyard, with huge bay windows or private balconies from which to take in your surroundings.

La Union’s Restaurant 1869 is rightly renowned as one of Cienfuegos’ finest eateries, offering a wide range of uniquely inventive international dishes in a plush, elegant setting. There’s also a cosy bar where you can relax with a Cuban coffee or a mojito, and a spa which will help you to recharge following a day’s sightseeing in town.

La Union’s prime location makes it perfectly placed for exploring Cienfuego’s myriad historical attractions, among them the centuries-old Fortress Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles de Jagua, the Cathedral Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción, and the architectural melting pot that is the De Valle Palace. The iconic Teatro Tomás Terry, meanwhile, is the place to go to experience Cienfuegos’ vibrant theatre and arts scene.
