Editorial review:

One of Havana’s finest hotels, it is also one of Havana’s oldest. Beginning operation in 1867, this hotel is located inside the Palacio de los Condes de Santovenia, the former palace of a Spanish count. In 1998, this structure was upgraded to five-star status (which unlike other Havana hotels, really deserves this designation). There are 17 regular rooms furnished in Spanish colonial style and modern artwork by Cuban artists. As an aside, U.S. President Jimmy Carter stayed here during his visit to Cuba in 2002.

Overview

The Santa Isabel Hotel is set in the heart of old Havana, facing the charming Plaza de Armas.

The palatial 18th Century building holds its original elegance and grandeur, it features a colonial facade, crystal chandeliers adorn the lobby. With a shady Spanish-style courtyard and terrace there's almost as much to impress outside.

Rooms are beautifully decorated and offer a colonial feel, with original floor tiling, French doors opening to the spacious terrace and wrought iron beds.

The two restaurants and two bars are designed to offer satisfaction and choice.

Number of rooms:   27.

Rooms
