Eastern Cuba Hotels

Hotel Casa Granda

  • Calle Heredia 201 Map It
  • Santiago de Cuba
  • Fodor's Choice


  • The formal dining room offers delectable seafood and steak dishes
  • Few lodgings in Cuba evoke history the way this one does


  • Guest rooms don't have as elegant an aura as architecture of the place
  • The furniture isn't new and rooms are on the small side, though still among the best in the city

Fodor's Review

From the grand old Casa Granda, the best hotel in the Centro Histórico, you can see Parque Céspedes, with its wandering musicians and guayabera-clad men in conversation. The hotel's second-floor porch—adorned with plants, crimson-and-gray awnings, a black-and-white tile floor, and a large wooden bar—is a great people-watching spot. Author Graham Greene was a regular guest here during his visits to Cuba, and he penned portions of his novel Our Man in Havana during his stays. Even if you don't stay here, be sure to stop by for a mojito or a light meal (you can get good cubanos [roast pork and ham sandwiches served with pickles and a salad]).
