Armadores de Santander

Hotel Armadores de Santander


Star rating:

Address: Calle Luz No. 4 esq. a San Pedro. Ciudad de La Habana

Like a lighthouse, the Hotel Armadores de Santander stands as a beacon and symbol. A beacon because it signals the entrance to Old Havana’s historic core and the intriguing sites therein. It’s also a symbol of the city’s rich maritime heritage (reflected in the interior décor). Enjoying a cold beer on the front patio or rooftop terrace to watch the world and ships go by is highly recommended.

Everything here from the colossal wooden doors opening on to the bar, the Chesterfield sofas in the lobby under beautifully ornate ceilings, and the marble stairs leading to the guest rooms (there’s also an elevator), recall bygone days.

While you’re likely to spend more time out exploring or on the roof terrace taking in the 5-star Old Havana views, keen observers will appreciate the attention to detail here. Check out those Lloyd Loom chairs in the plant-festooned hallways and the maritime images covering the walls.

Armadores de Santander is the perfect compromise for those who want to be walking distance from all the allure and offerings of Old Havana, but not quite in the thick of it. And then there’s that sweet, savory breeze coming off the water, which few other properties have in such delicious doses.
