The Santa Isabel Hotel, considered one of Havana’s finest hotels -as well as one of its oldest-, has a baroque decoration which recreates the historic charm of colonial times. The inner courtyard is spacious and gorgeous, with big columns, wooden beams´ ceilings and wrought-iron furniture. The vegetation is arranged beautifully and the service is top-end. Adjacent to the hotel is a small neoclassical doric temple known as the Museo El Templete, where local citizens recall every November Havana’s first Mass in 1519.
This hotel belongs to the hotel chain Habaguanex By Gaviota
