Hotel Casa Granda
At a Glance
- the formal dining room offers delectable seafood and steak dishes
- 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
Hotel Casa Granda Review
From here, the only hotel in the Centro Histórico, you can see Parque Céspedes, with its wandering musicians and guayabera-clad men in conversation. The hotel's 2nd-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. 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).
