Placed in the center of Santiago the Cuba you find a hostal with really nice and helpful hosts (english speaking), a beautiful roof top terrace, delicious food and comfortable, air conditioned and clean rooms. We stayed 4 nights in total in this hostal and enjoyed it. The two hosts helped us with anything we needed. The vegetable soup is really... More

My fiancé & I stayed here for 1 week. The Whole experience was amazing from start to finish. The rooms are clean & spacious & the view was beautiful. It's located in a good area & we would definitely stay again. Kudos to Roy & his team for being so friendly & welcoming. :-)

La Plaza Cespedes, la Casa de La Trova (a great music venue) and many other wonders of Santiago de Cuba are an easy walk from Hostal Las Terrazas (aka Martin y Gisel). As soon as we walked in the door we felt at home. Roy and Diego, the very thoughtful (and multi-lingual) proprietors, think of everything to make their guests... More

We loved this place. It was so clean and comfortable and the staff were incredible. I would highly recommend it to anyone as it really made our time in Cuba fantastic. We were particularly impressed with the food as we were a little nervous about trying the Cuban cuisine. The beds were super comfy and the decor is gorgeous. We... More

There are not enough words to describe our staying in Santiago..!!! There are plenty of reasons to stay at Roy's and Diego's hostal.The magnificent architecture is surely one of them.. Objectively, it is located in a beautiful neighborhood in the old city where the main square is reachable within 5 minutes walking. The view from the terrace is nothing less... More
