Rooms at Hotel Casa Granda

Reflecting the hotel’s classical façade, rooms and suites at Hotel Casa Granda are elegant and simple, traditionally decorated, and supremely comfortable and luxurious. The hotel’s fantastic location in the heart of the city means that you won’t be without a good view, whether of the bustling Parque Cespedes, the city’s stunning colonial buildings, or the sweeping bay.

Food and facilities

Hotel Casa Granda’s restaurant serves up lovingly prepared Cuban Creole and international cuisine in a lovely setting, in the hotel’s terrace roof garden. A lower terrace houses a cozy café & bar, the perfect place to people-watch in the plaza and relax as city life goes by beneath you.

Activities at Hotel Casa Granda

Hotel Casa Granda’s prime central location puts it in easy walking distance of many of Santiago de Cuba’s historical attractions, among them the Catedral de Nuestra Senora de la Asunción, Museo del Carnaval, and the Museo Municipal de Emilio Bacardí – the latter dedicated to the former rum magnate and mayor of Santiago. After a day of sightseeing, there can be few better ways to wind down than with cocktails on the roof terrace, enjoying live Latin music as you watch the sun go down behind the mountains.
