Hotel Central Santa Clara
Hotel Central Santa Clara is a beautifully restored colonial mansion in Santa Clara.
One of the landmark buildings in Santa Clara, overlooking the main square Parque Vidal, has opened after years of renovation: Hotel Central. The property houses 26 guest rooms in a prime location; with its graceful colonial-style colonnades and balconies it is without a doubt one of the prettiest buildings in Santa Clara.
After decades of disrepair the hotel has being restored to its 1929 glory, maintaining intact its original ornate facade, and the ample lobby showcasing the grand marble stairs. The guest rooms have high ceilings and doors maintaining the original character. Overall though it's a mix of the nostalgic with the contemporary. There is a lobby bar and a terrace bar on the third floor which is a great spot to enjoy many beautiful tropical evenings enjoying the breeze from the square, sipping 'mojitos' and listening to great Cuban music.
