    Beautiful, lively, Hotel Armadores de Santander

    by

    The Hotel Armadores de Santander hotel is a beautifully restored hotel. The rooms are huge (but be careful, if you'd like a room with a window, ask for one as some rooms have no windows) and the bar area attracts some Cubans to come inside and play music, drink and dance.

    My first taste of Cuban Salsa dancing was at the hotel's bar area well after midnight! After a few mojito's, and just listening to that great music, how can I not dance? ;)

    The hotel is located at the edge of Old Havana near the port, and it's also very close to the Rum Museam.

    Unique Quality: Huge rooms and live music at the bar which gives it that nice Cuban touch.

    A Delightful place to Stay

    by

    I have no complaints about my stay at this hotel booked by Fidel Valdivie of Cuba Autrement.
    Accomodation was very comfortable, tranquil and the view to the harbour of havana enchanting. now for an introduction to the history of the hotel:
    Bordeando una esquina de la Avenida del Puerto de la Habana se alza majestuoso el hotel Armadores de Santander, recordando en sus motivos y decorados iternos a la hermosa provincia maritima de Espana. En la parte mas alta del edificio, engalanando la fachada, se alza el esude de dicha ciudad. Sobre las petreas columnas aparecen siete rostros esultoricos que muestran los diversos estados de animo de ser humano. En el amplio soportal cuelgan grandes faroles, semejantes-a gran escale-a los usados en las embarcaciones de antano.
    El parador debe su nombre a que esete edificio tenian sus oficinas importantes armadores de la region de Santander, como el Conde de la Mortera, el qual fue propietario de una flota de barcos que operaba en la region de las Antillas y se dedicaba al comercio y al traslado de tropas desde Espana.

    Unique Quality: El hotel sta constituido por tres unmuebles, senalados dos de ellos con los numeros 356 y 358 de la calle San Pedro y el tercero con los numeros 2 y 4 de calle Luz, constituyendo este ultimo su cuerpo principal. El primero es de construccion eclectica y el segundo de arquitectura neoclasica con fronton romano y columnas corintias, ambos de finales del siglo XIX. En la colosal puerta de entrada estan grabadas las iniciales JC que concuerdan con el constructor y propietario del inmueble, Jose Cabrero Mier, natural de Santander.
    Nos recibe el confortable lobby bar La Marina de elegante persianeria francesa hacia el soportal, dividido por una pequena estancia que resalta por su aureo barroquismo. desde el lobby, de sobria decoration y prestancia, se divisa el mezanine con importante muestras pictoricas de destacados artista cubanos contemporaneos. El bar, por su parte, evoca en su interior la intimidad y la penumbra de los excelentes espacios. Las 39 habitaciones que posee el hotel estan elegantemente disenandas y gozan de la frescura y el deleite de la brisa marina. La terraza mirador del ultimo piso ofrece la posibilidad de visualizar los navios que entran y salen de la Bahia de Bolsa, degustando cocteles tropicales o empelandose como desayunador. La distincion del restaurante Cantbria se resume en la esmerada atencion a sus comnesales y en los exquisitos platos tipicos de Santander y de la cocina internacional que alli se confeccionan. Para los gustos mas exigentes, el hotel cuenta con una acogedora Sala de billar con exposicion permanente de intersantes fotos de jugadas de billar y grabados de La Habana Colonial

    Armadores de Santander, Hotel_Habaguanex, S.A.

    by

    Location
    On a corner on Havana's Avenida del Puerto stands the majestic Armadores de Santander Hotel, which architectural style and decoration resemble the buildings from that beautiful maritime province in Spain. Santander’s coat of arm decorates the façade of the edifice. Big lanterns, like those used in ancient vessels, hang from the ceiling in the spacious porch. The hotel consists of three buildings (painted in different colors). Two of them are numbered 356 and 358 on San Pedro St., and a third one is numbered 2 and 4 on Luz St. The latter is the main building of the hotel. The first edifice is eclectic, and the second one is neoclassic, with a Roman façade and Corinthian columns. Both were built in the 19th century. The initials J.C. are printed on the main door, after the constructor and proprietor of the building, José Cabrero Mier. The hotel's name comes from the fact that many "armadores" (shipowners) from Santander, including the Count of La Mortera, who owned a fleet of ships that transported goods and troops between that Spanish city and Cuba, had their offices in the building. Nearby places of interest: Saint Francis of Assisi Square, Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi, Museum of Religious Art, Museum of Rum, Cafe Taberna "Benny Moré", Mesón de la Flota Restaurant, Plaza Vieja (Old Square), Santo Angel Restaurant, House of Alexander V. Humboldt, Church of San Francisco de Paula, Convent of Saint Claire. Havana's "José Martí" International Airport, 20 kms./ 12.42 miles.

VERY COMFORTABLE ROOMS. VIEW OF HABANA HARBOUR. QUIET AND CLOSE TO PLAZA SAN FRANCISCO. BREAKFAST PROVIDED. GOOD SERVICE.
