The Hotel Armadores de Santander stands facing the Havana harbor, bordering a corner of Avenida del Puerto.
Majestic, with its magnificent façade, tall columns, beautiful Carrara marble stairways, massive doors and windows, this three-level property, dating from the 18th century, is another rescued jewel in Old Havana that reopened in 2002 , after a complete restoration, to be the hotel that it is today.
Its motifs and interior decor; boats, anchors, sails, evoke the beautiful and maritime province of Cantabria, Spain.
The hotel comprises three adjoining buildings. It features 32 spacious, elegant rooms with stylish decoration, attractive furniture, elements made of precious wood, colonial tiles and very modern bathrooms.
From many of its rooms, guests can see ships entering and leaving the bay of Havana and enjoy the freshness of the sea breeze.
Undoubtedly one of the main attractions of this hotel is its rooftop terrace and bar, with its fantastic views of the harbor.
It also has a lobby-bar, elevators, the "Cantabria" restaurant that offers both international and typical dishes of the city of Santander based on fish and seafood, as well as a room for events, meetings or celebrations.
Its location is great for visiting the old town since it is within walking distance from all places of interest, and particularly close to the Rum Museum with its charming bar, the largest craft market in the city "Almacenes San José", a popular brewery down on the pier, the Russian Orthodox church and the Alameda de Paula.
