The Hotel Santa Isabel is located at the Plaza de Armas, just a few steps from the site where the town of San Cristóbal de la Habana was founded, back in the 16th century.

Built in the 18th century, the magnificent mansion belonged to the Counts of Santovenia, and in 1867 it became a very elegant hotel, the favorite of artists, merchants, ship owners and other distinguished travellers who chose it for its location and elegance. It even appeared in travel brochures of the time as "the finest hotel in the island with American- style services".

After a careful restoration, Santa Isabel reopened in 1997 maintaining much of its original architectural elements and keeping the comfort and distinction that always characterized it.

Its spacious rooms, decorated in colonial style; its fancy restaurant and cozy inner courtyard, with beautiful and lush vegetation, a fountain and a bar where guests and visitors like to sit to enjoy a cocktail or sip a delicious Cuban coffee, make it one of the finest hotels in the old city.

The hotel features a panoramic terrace, from where visitors can enjoy wonderful views of the bay and the Christ of Havana, ancient fortresses and the charming Plaza de Armas.

Its location is perfect, in the very heart of the historical center of Havana, and within walking distance from all places of interest.

The beauty of the building and the comfort of its rooms make it the ideal hotel for a romantic stay, for the business traveler and for any lover of architecture and history.
