Hotel Encanto Camino de Hierro is a great choice if you are looking to stay in the centre of historical Camaguey, particularly if you want to enjoy its delights by day and night.

Named after the iron road (railroad) that helped this colonial city to boom, Camino de Hierro is a charming 18th century boutique hotel and perfectly located for its central attractions. The city center is a UNESCO world heritage site and this hotel is close to the impressive Iglesia de La Soledad church and beautifully restored cobble-stoned Plaza San Juan de Dios.

Camino de Hierro is only a small hotel with buildings spread either side of the road. The main building is attractively appointed with a railway theme and stylish original artwork throughout. There feels like real history within its walls and there are distinctive colonial features like the classic covered first floor balcony and tall mahogany doors.

The staff are very good at Camino de Hierro though food can be hit and miss, with breakfast generally the best, though the restaurant can be busy then with choice rather limited. However, there are a number of good eating options nearby if you prefer. The hotel bar provides good cocktails and there is also a bar in the adjacent building, though this does get noisy. By day it is pleasant to relax in the inner courtyard or take in some sun as you watch the world go by on the outer patio.

It may not suit light sleepers but Camino de Hierro is a great choice for anyone wanting a slice of colonial Cuba in central Camaguey, particularly those who enjoy the nightlife.
