Historic Hotels
The Hotel Armadores de Santander (which means ‘Shipowners of Santander’) overlooks the port of Havana. The building’s façade, with its stone reliefs of the coat of arms of Santander surrounded by maritime motifs, is wonderfully evocative of the city’s seagoing past.

Havana’s entire raison to be, was the excellence of its natural harbour and its strategic position within the Spanish Empire in the Americas. Nowhere is this easier to appreciate than from a balcony of the Armadores de Santander. The building was commissioned by Don José Cabrero Mier, a native of that city. Many important Havana shipowners maintained offices there, notably Don Ramón Herrera y Sancibrián, Count of Mortera, who after beginning his career as a weaver in the Spanish town of Mortera was driven by poverty to emigrate and try his luck in Cuba. Here he became a hugely successful banker and shipowner. During the Cuban Wars of Independence Don Ramón dedicated a part of his fleet to the service of the Spanish crown, for which he was rewarded with his title.

The Hotel Armadores de Santander was restored and is run by the Office of the City Historian of Havana, so all its profits are reinvested in the restoration of the city’s historical centre. Anyone keen on maritime history and the comings and goings of ships will love it. From early morning until late at night boats pass to and fro in front of the hotel and the views of the twinkling harbour lights in the evening, and the rising sun gleaming on the smooth water before the morning breeze gets up, are impossibly romantic.

Considering the price it was not ok. brekfast was poor and personnel at breakfast totally not interested. In total it was absolutely not worth the price.

Detaļas Standard Room  
The 30 standard rooms at the Armadores de Santander tend to have a smallish floor area but feel anything but cramped due to the immense height of their ceilings. Many of them have lovely marble balconies overlooking the harbour and original tiled floors. The bathrooms are large with attractive blue and white tiling and wonderfully generous 30s-style basins. A few of the room are split-level with a cosy sitting room below and a bedroom area above next to the original beams of the madly high ceilings. 20 of the rooms are twin bedded and the other 10 have matrimonial beds.

Guide to Vecā Havana
Havanas sirds un dvēsele ir vecā pilsēta Habana Vieja, kas UNESCO 1982. gadā deklarēja par cilvēces mantojumu. Tā vēlējās saglabāt tās arhitektūras skaistumu un paaugstināt tās vēsturiski nozīmigo lomu reģionā.

Tālāk ir norādītas tikai dažas interesantas vietas: Plaza de Armas , kuras centrā atrodas patriota Cespedes statuja un ir aptverta ar ēnainiem marmora soliem un lietotu grāmatu tirgotājiem, tā ir pirmais publiskais laukums, kas bija uzcelts pilsētā. Plaza de la Catedral , iespējams, ir visskaistākais Karību jūras krastā, ko ieskauj labākās baroka arhitektūras piemēri valstī. El Templete , mazs neoklasicisma templis, kas atzīmē vietu, kur 1519. gadā notika pirmā mesa. Castillo de la Real Fuerza ir viena no vecākajām Amerikas fortēm, kurā tagad atrodas mūsdienu mākslas izstādes, kas izvietotas lejā un nodrošina labu skatu pāri ostai. Palacio de los Capitanes Generales , valdības atrašanās vieta un gubernatora dzīvesvieta tika pārcelta no forta ēkā. Tās bija prezidenta pils un vēlāk pašvaldības pils līdz brīdim, kad Castro uzņēma varu, tagad tas ir Museo de la Ciudad de la Habana. Museo de Arte Colonial , skaists pils, kas bija celts 1720. gadā, to dzelteno pagalmu un mazliet mainītas arhitektūras iezīmes, papildina liela 17. un 18. gadsimta mēbeļu kolekcija. Calle Obispo vecā Havanā tā vissvarīgākā un gudrāka caurbrauktuve ar gājēju pārejām un raķešu galviņām kas aizvieto stabus.
