Havana Hotels

Hotel Santa Isabel

  • Calle Baratillo 9 Map It
  • La Habana Vieja


  • Rarely is a soul seen in the vast lobby, ensuring plenty of privacy


  • While the rooms are stately, the mattresses and bedding are poor

Fodor's Review

This 17th-century building is so stately that the Counts of Santovenia made it their home until 1867, when it became one of Habana Vieja's most elegant hotels. Rooms have Spanish colonial furniture and contemporary works by Cuban artists like Zaida del Río. Most rooms overlook the Plaza de Armas, though some have port views. Despite its many comforts and its lush interior patio, the Santa Isabel has a chilly (and empty) feel. Best views here are to be had in rooms and junior sweets that overlook the popular Plaza de Armas, with its many booksellers, artists, and restaurants.
