We took a tour of the entire island and Santiago was our first stop after Varadero. I have to say that this hotel was our best experience from Santiago. It is placed in the new center of the city, very near to a plaza where they have wi-fi, so sometimes we could use it from the hotel lobby. The rooms... More

Nice hotel very well located on the Plaza de Marte (city center) with clean rooms. I stayed there for 2 nights in a room (without window) during the Carnival in July 2015. The breakfast is included but quite average and basic compared to what you can get in a casa. The receptionists were quite helpful with all the travelers struggling... More

Ok, what do you expect with the money you are paying? It's not the Hilton but it's fair, it's quite noisy so don't expect a goo d night sleep.You better go for a drink at San Pauli -it's about 100 meters on your left- and start your daily excursion at the beaches. The rooms are not the best I've seen... More

This hotel is in a good location, a shortish walk from the main square in Santiago. The rooms are clean, if a bit small. The breakfast is ok, you don't always receive what you have ordered, it sometimes gets lost in translation. The bar is good, it looks out onto the adjacent square.

This small, old, hotel on Plaza de Marti is very convenient for all of the central historical & cultural attractions of Santiago, including the Moncada barracks. It is housed in an old Spanish colonial building, with all of the letting rooms on the 1st floor, three of which overlook the main plaza, and the remainder located in an internal atrium.... More

An 18 room hotel located right on Plaza de Marti which is a very busy roundabout. My room was towards the back of the hotel and so I was not bothered by traffic noise. The rooms are basic but reasonable comfortable. My room had a high ceiling but no window and was a bit dark and in need of decorating.... More

I stayed at the Hotel Libertad in March 2012 with 3 girlfriends. We were on a 2.5 week holiday travelling across the island. We paid about £15 a night on a deal we found on the internet. The hotel is situated at one end of Plaza Martes, a lively plaza that often has festivals / fiestas in the evening at... More

The hotel is centrally located adjacent Plaza de Martes. I was on the second floor where the main hall has some nice tile work and views to the Plaza de Martes in front. The room was clean and the air conditioning, TV, etc worked well. Despite being situated in the hustle and bustle of downtown, the room was relatively quiet,... More
