This casa particular owned by Hector Martinez is a lovely old house with a courtyard garden surrounded by a tiled veranda, off which are the ensuite rooms. We came here as it was recommended by Lonely Planet, and it is a nice place, but I personally found the owner a little too pushy about trying to get us to eat in. It made us feel a little uncomfortable; I understand people just want to earn a living, but I get irritated when I'm told eating anywhere else will make me ill (we ate street food, and it didn't.... the juice is another story!).
This is a funny hotel, probably the tallesst greenest building in town and it has everything from a discotecue to a bar and a restaurant. The rooms themselves are pretty shabby but clean and at 36CUC you can't go wrong. We were here just the one night and its located in the centre square of the town.
The hotel caters to cubans and tourists alike which is unusual for hotels in Cuba
I got on so well with the family running this place, that although I could have stayed somewhere cheaper I ended up staying there for 8 nights.
The family has 2 rooms which they rent out ( totally legally) one with a double bed and the other room is a triple. The doors are lockable, both rooms are ensuite.
You have to bargain hard if you want a discount, the lady of the house knows what she wants ;-)
There is a large lounge where you can sit & watch tv in the evenings if you want.
The food there is also very good, so even if you don't stay there, you can get the place where you are staying to call ahead and they serve as a restaurant in the evening. Try their delicious frijoles negro( black beans), which they serve as a soup... mmmm - best in town I think.
If you do go, please say hi to them from Anni the big girl from London !
“Casa Mercy” de Omelio Moreno y Mercedes
It is possible to rent a private place in Santa Clara, Cuba, when visiting here.
People who travel by themselves often like to find a private accomodation, which is cheaper and allows them to get closer to the country’s reality.
Casa MERCY, rent private rooms in Santa Clara, Cuba. The house is a beautiful 1980 construction, very clean and secure neighborhood; they are licenced for the rental rooms to tourists and foreigners. Please note the blue triangle in the door and the number of the house. The sticker with the blue triangle is the simbol of a licenced house.
They have a very nice apartment downtown Santa Clara with two clean rooms, with private bathrooms each, AC and two wonderful terrace.
The owners are a Cuban family dedicated to the hosting activity for more than ten years. They truly hope that you will like it and prefer their rooms as many others before, when you travel to Santa Clara, Cuba.
$27/night for what you get isn't worth it but I had to pay.
Nothing really except its centralness. Though the bullet holes from the battle for Santa Clara when Che captured the town do ad a nice touch!
