We stayed at this hotel on an overnight excursion from Havana to Trinidad and other cities.
It served its purpose, but I would have preferred staying closer to Trinidad. The hotel was OK, serving the purpose of hosting guests for one night only. The room was clean, beds good, bathroom newly renovated. But the bathroom came with no shampoo, no floor carpet. Just the basics.
The food in the restaurant was edible but really not very good, leftovers from previous dinner were seen back on the breakfast buffet.
But I guess, if you are on an organised tour, it is OK, as the "russian truck to the national park" excursions start from here, as do the more recent hiking or biking tours.
There is only one computer with internet access in the lobby (no wifi), and the computer is most often booked, and costs money yo use.
Note that this hotel is in the mountains, quite far away from Trinidad. In other words, if on an overnight tour, you will not be able to see Trindad in the evening. On the other hand, as the hotel is at around 700 or 800 m altitude, nights are relatively cool, and off the hot summer season, you will not need the air-conditioning (a separate unit in the windows).
For being in Cuba, OK - otherwise, I would not have given it more than 2 stars
