The Hotel Beltrán de Santa Cruz is located in the heart of the Historic Center of Havana City, in an elegant two-level colonial house built in the 18th century.
It is a property steeped in history since its inception, because over time it was inhabited by families and prominent personalities of Havana society such as: Pedro Beltrán de Santa Cruz, Count of San Juan de Jaruco; Josefa Catalina de Santa Cruz, sister of the Marquesa de Cárdenas de Monte Hermoso; The Family of the Marqués de Casa Peñalver, among others.
The house hosted and lavished the most distinguished personalities who visited the city: Baron Alexander de Humboldt, the eminent German scientist, was one of them, and three French princes: the Count of Beaujolais, and the Dukes of Montpensier and Orleans (the latter was afterwards crowned as King Louis Philippe of France).
Today the Beltrán de Santa Cruz is a cozy, intimate, charming inn with only 11 rooms, in a privileged location, only a few steps away from Plaza Vieja (Old Square), one of the most beautiful and full of life in the historic center.
It keeps its old components and its colonial air. Its interior patio, typical of the Spanish mansions of the time, welcomes its guests and is the main meeting place.
The rooms are spacious and beautiful, featuring a colonial décor and with stylish wooden furniture, incorporating modern comforts. The narrow-steep stairs, original to the building, up to the second floor rooms is not suitable for people with mobility difficulties. There are rooms on the ground floor that are wheelchair accessible.
The Standards overlook the inner courtyard while the Junior Suites offer balconies overlooking San Ignacio street, in the very center of Old Havana, where liveliness and bustle are part of the charm, which is worth mentioning if you expect silence and tranquility in your room.
A charismatic hotel, with great location, convenient to spend few nights in Havana and enjoy, walking, everything that the old city has to offer.
