Although such alterations as gleaming white-tile floors detract from its historic atmosphere, this late-19th-century inn is still charming. The thick square columns, high arches, and abundant potted plants in the public areas will enchant you. Guest rooms have tile floors and modern wooden furniture. The five in front have high ceilings and small balconies overlooking Plaza Martí. The restaurant (¢–$$) serves quality Cuban cuisine; try the bistec en cazuela
(in a red sauce) or a seafood dish.
