Description Santa Isabel
- Santa Isabel opens its doors with elegance, splendor and comfort, charactaristics that it has had since it was founded more than 100 years ago. It is located at the Plaza de Armas, just metres from the square where the village of San Cristobal de Havana was founded. Admire the sweeping views of architectural monuments like the Palace of the Captain Generals and the Christ statue across Havana's Bay. In 1867, the regal splendor and sumptuous comfort of the magnificent palace of the Count Santovenia made it the favorite hotel of ship chandlers, merchants, artists, scientists and illustrious travelers passing through the capital city. A century later, the hotel has re-opened its doors and guests will be delighted to discover that its original stately elegance and comfort have been preserved. Stay at the Santa Isabel and bask in the exotic glow of Cuba's history, architecture, art and culture. From the terrace, the eclectic view takes in Havana's monuments, the Bay, the city s imposing fortresses, the colossal statue of Jesus Christ, La Giraldilla (emblem of the city) and the Palace of the Commanders-in-Chief. In this quintessential Cuban three-story palace, unique masterpieces and original works by some of Cuba s best artists adorn the walls. The Santa Isabel is an idyllic setting for couples in love.
