Casa Granda, Santiago de Cuba
Santiago de Cuba
The Casa Granda is Santiago de Cuba's most elegant colonial hotel, housing 58 high quality rooms in a great location and stylish terrace bar overlooking the city's main square, Parque Cespedes.
Rooms are medium sized with a/c, private bathroom (with shower and bath), hot water, minibar, safe (included), hairdryer, and double glazing. 24 of the rooms have a view to the main square.
However, the hotel does not entirely live up to its grand exterior image. It does not have a swimming pool or garden, but it has a super roof terrace for drinksand breakfast. Street parking only. There are 2 computers on the ground floor with internet access, and a restaurant serving 3 meals a day, although service is slow and fairly sullen. There is just one small lift serving the whole hotel and, in general, the finer touches of an otherwise elegant hotel will not to be found here.
