We recommend staying at the following hotels in Havana and Santiago
de Cuba which stand out in this particular price category because of their
history, architecture, location or services offered. If you look for an ideal
city and beach combination in the proximity of Havana , the hotels at the
Playas del Este
provide beautiful beaches for your relaxation.
HOTELS WITH TRADITION
The hotels we offer you in Havana reflect in most cases their city's history
and will captivate you with their flair and gracious architecture. Start with
a trip back in time in a domicile, which drew such personalities as Enrico
Caruso, Ava Gardner, Winston Churchill, Hemmingway, or Al Capone. Some houses
were palaces for nobility in past epochs or the ruling houses of wealthy trade
families. These were later restored with great care and are now open for their
guests to enjoy.
Directly on the border of the old city opposite Parque Central,
in the close proximity of many places of interest. Opened in 1875, it has
had several face lifts and still maintains that quintessential charm. It housed
former guests of state and crime author Graham Greene introduced his readers
to this gem in one of his novels. The terrace with cafeteria and bar in front
of the hotel is one of the best places to observe the bustle from Parque Central
and is regularly frequented by music groups who will charm you with their
magical rhythms of the Son music.

Situated opposite the Parque Centr
al, at one of the main junctions of Old Havana,
you'll find one of the city's most famous and traditional hotels
- first opened
in 1875. The charm of this epochal beauty is apparent in the numerous details,
like the neo-classic facade, colorful stained glass, detailed ceiling embellishments
and Moorish style mosaic tiling.
The charm of the Belle Epoque can be seen on many buildings with neo-classique fašades, colourful lead-glass windows, meticulous elaborated ceiling adornments and tile mosaics in moorish style. The lobby and especially the restaurant are lavishly equiped with these tiles.
MEETING PLACE TERRACE
hotel's terrace is a popular meeting place where one can watch the colorful
bustle on the streets with a Mojito in hand, or swing to the rhythm of the Son
music played by musicians on the terrace. We recommend a visit to the roof terrace,
there is an imposing view to be had, amongst the ornaments and figures of Parque
Central and the Gran Teatro next to it.
