Lovely small hotel (old hostel) in a good location, few minutes walk to all the main square. Room was comfortable, and opened on to an interior courtyard. Breakfast was greats as were the staff and the welcome drink. Just wish they had Wi-Fi

San Basilio is a delightful small hotel in a refurbished colonial house. Our experience there however started badly as, on arrival after a 13 hour bus trip, we were told that we had made a mistake, that we must be booked somewhere else as there were no rooms available. When I produced details of our booking and explained we had... More

After many months research we booked this hotel for 3 days in May. We arrived on a hot day and couldn't check in as the hotel was being fumigated. We were told to leave our luggage and come back in an hour. When we arrived all looked lovely. The receptionist told us we had come to wrong hotel and were... More

My husband and I and two friends stayed at this hotel for six nights in April and would thoroughly recommend it. The reception we received was most welcoming as was the behaviour of the staff throughout our stay. Bedrooms were very comfortable and hair dryers worked a dream! Constant hot water, although our friends did experience some difficulty in this... More

My husband and I greatly enjoyed our time in Santiago de Cuba that included a very comfortable stay in Hostal San Basilio where the happy staff always provided cheerful advice and support to arrange local trips. The breakfast was always delicious, plentiful and provided in a timely manner. The whole experience is highly recommended.

This hotel is just around the corner from the Casa de la Trova, about 5 mins walk from the main plaza, but is quiet into the later hours - not easy in such a lively, musical city! Beautifully decorated, high rooms that look onto a central courtyard (so no privacy). Good air conditioning, lots of hot water, and very friendly... More

Delightful small hotel in a great location, within walking distance to all the highlights. Our room was very comfortable, though quite small. What makes this hotel really good is the friendly, helpful and very cheery staff.

Our room was comfortable and had some lovely features. The hotel had a great atmosphere and colonial feel. The staff were helpful. It was in a good location to walk to all attractions.
