It’s hard to wax eloquent about a 2-star hotel, built in an unattractive Eastern European seventies architectural style. Still, the Hotel Pernik has its plusses.
Opened on December 31st 1980, the Pernik has a distinct identity: several rooms are adorned with works by local artists and some rooms are dedicated to Cuban celebrities. These are decorated according to their specialty, such as the room honoring the revered Cuban musician, maestro Leo Brouwer.
The hotel features an open, spacious layout, from the lobby, gardens and rooms to the big swimming pool, with cute parasols and a palm tree here and there. These facilities, as well as the bar, restaurant, snack bar, etc., have a contemporary look after undergoing renovation.
Like Holguín itself, the Hotel Pernik is notable for its hospitality. Since its opening, the hotel has welcomed Cuban artists and athletes, national and international guests, and also airline crews. But make no mistake: this is no frills accommodation that meets the basic needs of hotel guests. Visitors with 5 star expectations would be better off driving an hour north to the luxury accommodation on the beaches of Guardalavaca.
Hotel Pernik is located in the newer, residential area of the provincial capital, near Revolution Square (inaugurated in the same time period) and about 2 kilometers from Holguin's historic center.
• There are regular domestic flights from Havana to Holguín, and you can reserve private transfers from Holguín Airport to the Hotel Pernik.
• Hiring a car is a good option. The distance from Santiago de Cuba is 141 kilometers towards the north to the city of Holguín via a secondary road. Coming from the west, the distance from Las Tunas to the city of Holguín is 79 kilometers via the Carretera Central de Cuba. Coming from Holguín Airport, continue via the Carretera de Holguín, until you reach the Circunvalación, and then take a right.
