Santa Isabel Hotel, Havana

As soon as you step foot inside the hotel you’ll understand why the Santa Isabel would appeal to the (presumably) widely varying tastes of an American President and one of the godfathers of Heavy Metal rock music. It has all the grace of a long past colonial era, in every detail of its architecture and its soft pink façade; its carriage-style lanterns and its archaic grilled windows. But the Santa Isabel also has all the contemporary style and modern conveniences that, as one of today’s well-travelled visitors, you would expect of a place with such a distinguished guest list.

As a destination on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Cuba, you’ll also find this one-time aristocratic palace offers you a haven of peace amidst busy central Havana.
