About Hotel Cubanacan America
Popular with short-stay travellers en route to other locations & tourists on the Che Guevara trail, Hotel America is also in a great location for discovering Santa Clara, capital city of the Villa Clara province. But far from being just a 3-star stop-over; Hotel America provides charming, comfortable accommodation & a 4-star service.
Opposite the city's Parque Leoncio Vidal, which often has markets & music events, Hotel America is ideal for visitors who want to experience the sights, sounds & heritage of Santa Clara. This includes two Che Guevara museums, one of which is just 10 minutes walk away.
The hotel is fairly new & has an impressive pool table & bar area that holds a disco on Fridays & Saturdays. The bar is therefore popular with local people at the weekend & is a great place to meet & have fun with them.
Accommodation is on a bed & breakfast basis &, while the choice is limited, the food is well prepared & served in a warm, friendly way. Indeed, if you have special culinary requests, the staff will do their best to concoct them.
Hotel America is a good choice for anyone wanting a memorable experience outside the main tourist areas of Cuba, or those wanting to learn more about local heritage.
Since November 2016, a different Tour Operator has exclusivity with Hotel Cubanacan America.
As a new hotel, the rooms are spotless with modern décor & especially nice tiled bathrooms, with hot & cold shower. The rooms are on the small side, though this is not the sort of hotel people are expected to spend long days in so it should not be a problem. The interior rooms have no windows but, by compensation, are much larger & also quieter than the exterior ones. Exterior rooms are smaller but benefit from windows & a balcony.
Hotel America does not have a lift so those with mobility issues should reserve a ground floor room.
A buzzing provincial town, with a pleasant Parque Central, Santa Clara is most famous for its connection with Che Guevara, whose attack on a Batista troop train in the city in December 1958 helped persuade the dictator that his days were numbered. This provincial capital is well worth visiting, beyond the suburbs you'll find a buzzing place with streets lively with people going about their daily lives, and the city benefits from having a large student population. The centre seems well looked after and relatively litter-free. A startling sight to anyone arriving from Havana. There are some interesting museums worth taking in and the small brick red-tiled houses lend themselves to an atmosphere of calm and discretion. For most people the area Parque Vidal is the most eventful place in the city, as well as being the geographical heart of the city, it is also its social centre and there is usually some sort of entertainment going on at weekends. A monument marks the spot where revolutionary hero Leoncio Vidal was killed , and benches line the promenades that cross and circle the park. On the plaza's north.
