I think that this has to be the grandest hotel I've ever stayed in! My room was huge - as well as two large double beds there was room for a three piece suite, a table and 2 upright chairs and a large TV cabinet with pelnty of space to move around still. It's a beautifully restored old colonial building on a leafy square that is situated on the edge of the historic centre of the city.

My room was on the front overlooking said square but those looking for an early night would be advised to ask for a room at the back because on the other side of the square there is an outdoor disco frequented in large numbers by the local youth. It closes at 1.00am but you'll hear the reggaeton blasting out until then. It didn't bother me unduly because I was out until quite late myself but those who want a quiet night will probably be bothered by the noise. If you aren't bothered by the reggaeton sound track or will up late yourself then the best rooms are at the front on the first floor - they have large balconies with table and chairs.

The food was very good - a decent self-service buffet with the usual cooked to order eggs at breakfast with waiter service from an a la carte menu at dinner. But it was fairly bland and 'international' in style - the least Cuban of my whole trip. On the first night my chicken went cold while I waited for the rice and beans that is usually the inevitable accompaniment to every meal in Cuba - but not at the Grand in Trinidad!

The hotel staff were excellent, very helpful at all times. All spoke very good English but this was a big disincentive to practice my Spanish.

The entertainment was very low key - probably a reflection of the lively music scene in the city itself - and consisted of a duo singing Cuban ballads in the combined restaurant/bar area.

The Grand is an excellent, boutique style hotel at which to base yourself for a 2/3 day visit to Trinidad - all the key sites are within easy walking distance.
