Hotel Armadores de Santander in Old Havana
Facing the broad expanse of the Bay of Havana, the Armadores de Santander stands where the city’s colonial past meets its present-day life and attractions.
Though a short walk away from the busy and lively Plaza de San Francisco, at the doorstep of the Old Town’s sightseeing beat and attendant bustle, the hotel is just far enough away from the action to afford the peace and quiet many travellers seek, turned nostalgically towards Havana’s days of booming maritime commerce.
The colossal wooden doors, arcade and wrought-iron hanging lamps that greet you at the entrance recall a time of horse-driven carriages and cobbled avenues, and the restored, 19th-century interior and furniture – though bordering on the sombre at places – has class and charm. The long and elegant lobby bar is nestled pleasantly between the avenue and this sober setting.
The terrace and port-facing rooms have amazing, panoramic views of the bay, where the glistening waters are traversed by ships the day through. Tempered by a generous sea-breeze, these are magnificent places to take your breakfast, enjoy a quiet read or let your mind wander out to sea, past the glitter of port-lights at night.

Location of the Hotel Armadores de Santander
On Havana’s port avenue, the Armadores de Santander is at the threshold of the Old Town’s major attractions, turning its back on the city to face the Caribbean and Havana’s past. The Plaza de San Fransico and Plaza Vieja, nerve-centers of this part of town, are a short stroll away. Across the street, a ferry takes you to a magnificent viewpoint and the Cabaña fortress and tourist complex.
