Hotel La Habanera Nigel next to River

Hotel Encanto La Habanera, Baracoa

La Habanera is a charming and budget-priced hotel on the main street, just steps from the main plaza, is housed in a recently restored colonial-era building dating from 1867.

For better or worse, the original colonial tile-work has been replaced with rather soulless contemporary ceramics, but beautiful hardwood doors are a lovely touch.

The location is a major plus for sightseeing, but it comes at a price: At night noise from the partying in the square and the nearby rooftop La Terraza cabaret can wake the dead.

Lofty ceilings assist air-conditioning in keeping things cool in the 10 bedrooms that surround an atrium courtyard, and four upstairs rooms open onto narrow balconies. Modest yet tasteful tropical-themed rattan furnishings and lively autumnal colour schemes in the bedrooms contrast with simply colonial-style decor and clinical whites in public arenas.

All rooms have lofty ceilings, plus two twin beds – so honeymooners should plan accordingly. Four rooms share a balcony over the plaza. Satellite TVs offer four international channels, and modern bathrooms sparkle.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel La Habanera. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd which has a direct contract with the current hotel operator.

Best wishes for 2016
